Yes, because by attempting to be patriotic you are doing the exact opposite of what a true patriot should do, and that is work to perserve the union and change what you don't like peacefully.
Exactly, TBR. Secession is the epitome of unpatriotic behaviour...
It is necessarily unpatriotic, that does not mean that it is always wrong or is always right.
It is 100% unpatriotic. It's committing an act of treason and betrayal.
Were the colonists (or americans) patriotic to Great Britain?
Well, ummmmm......... Yeah. Its not very patriotic toward your country if you want to leave it.
By definition, yes. But if you want to start a new country, depending on the situation it could be for the better.
Obviously; it is the polar opposite of patriotism. Patriotism is an extreme love for one's country, but succession is extreme hate for one's country to the point of waging a war against them to make your own country. It could be patriotic to a previous state of the country/government, but it obviously not patriotic to the actual government of the time.
Patriotism, by definition, is being a proud member of a country and wanting to fight to preserve it. Secession is the complete opposite. You are clearly not a patriot if you want to no longer be part of the country you are in. As someone else pointed out, it would be like trying to say the founding fathers were patriotic British citizens while fighting a war against Britain. Breaking away, whether they have the right to or not, is treason against the union that the founding fathers and revolutionary patriots fought and died to create. THAT is NOT patriotism.
Individuals may feel neglected in rights
The whole constitution is about the rights of citizens and to protect ourselves from tyranny. There are parts of the constitution that allow us to stand up to big government There is no clause in the Constitution that specifically allows for secession, but it stands to reason that if states can be voluntarily admitted into the union there must be a way for them to voluntarily leave. In Texas v. White the majority opinion stated "The union between Texas and the other States was as complete, as perpetual, and as indissoluble as the union between the original States. There was no place for reconsideration or revocation, except through revolution or through consent of the States." so yes a state can
