Kurly writes in The Florida Voices: Secession talk as un-American today as it was in 1861

The presidential election is over, and the bellyaching has begun.
Most expected a tight race, but it wasn’t that close. Some say it was a monumental defeat for the GOP.
Now, a few of those who voted for Gov. Mitt Romney have become enchanted with the ludicrous idea of having their respective states secede from the U.S.
