Skip to comments.[from 2010 and Still Applies] Parting Company
Posted on 06/29/2012 7:18:52 PM PDT by Bearshouse
Here's the question asked in my September 2000 column titled "It's Time To Part Company": "If one group of people prefers government control and management of people's lives and another prefers liberty and a desire to be left alone, should they be required to fight, antagonize one another, risk bloodshed and loss of life in order to impose their preferences or should they be able to peaceably part company and go their separate ways?"
The problem that our nation faces is very much like a marriage where one partner has broken, and has no intention of keeping, the marital vows. Of course, the marriage can remain intact and one party tries to impose his will on the other and engage in the deviousness of one-upsmanship. Rather than submission by one party or domestic violence, a more peaceable alternative is separation.
I believe we are nearing a point where there are enough irreconcilable differences between those Americans who want to control other Americans and those Americans who want to be left alone that separation is the only peaceable alternative. Just as in a marriage, where vows are broken, our human rights protections guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution have been grossly violated by a government instituted to protect them. The Democrat-controlled Washington is simply an escalation of a process that has been in full stride for at least two decades. There is no evidence that Americans who are responsible for and support constitutional abrogation have any intention of mending their ways.

Secession is THE answer.
Texas is now California 2.
But Arizona looks great.
The rest of the article is amazing. I hope you have time to read it all, but the theme is pretty well summed up in these first few paragraphs.
Arizona IS great (from a former SoCal resident of 34 years).

It would be ok if a few of the states were socialists, then people could vote with their feet and move to free states. But now everything has been nationalized.
An old, old fault line. It is widening again.
“When in the course of human events”, and so on.
A great column by Mr. Williams.
Give the leftists three days to leave America or round them up and ship them one-way to North Korea.
Every leftist is within a three day drive to Canada or Mexico.
It’s a charitable choice for these nazis and commies.
That’s right: Phony-Care, Phony-Care is the Government Work-Camp: Arbeitsziehungslager
Arbeitsziehungslager to Labor Camp, U.S. Territory, the plan all along.
The problem is, those who want to control will respect no boundary... if there were a separation, they would scheme to cross the border and abscond with the goods of the other, and war would ensue, much death and mayhem... hence a civil war is coming... fingers in ears... la, la, la, la, la, la, la.............................
I always think to myself whenever I hear liberals piss and moan about how “evil” the US is: “Why don’t you leave and go to a country that has what you want?”
Too true. A conservative group would thrive while the libs would quickly run out of other peoples money and then scheme to steal what they think should have been theirs.
It sure is..I’m just wondering which choice will be made.
Exactly. Why should WE have to leave?
War is not inevitable. Secession may be the best option, and freedom's enemies are (rather fortunately) such sissies that the odds of a peaceful separation are enhanced. We may want to look at whether (a) secession of the states that want freedom or (b) expulsion of the states that want to be controlled by a 'benevolent' dictator is more likely to be interpreted as a constitutionally-permissible tax by the Roberts Court. We may also want to carefully analyze all the helpful and harmful Supreme Court decisions of the past 200 years and write a Constitution that preserves the good ones while preventing the blunders and genuinely limiting federal authority to the specifically enumerated powers.
That’s what happened with India and Pakistan. Supposed to be separation of the new country Pakistan, was nothing of the kind since Amalek cannot be appeased only killed.
Considering that they don't extend charity to those they have disagreement.
The SCOTUS made secession illegal by it's ruling in Texas v. White(1869), it ruled that secession WAS illegal when Texas did it.
"Not only, therefore, can there be no loss of separate and independent autonomy to the States through their union under the Constitution, but it may be not unreasonably said that the preservation of the States, and the maintenance of their governments, are as much within the design and care of the Constitution as the preservation of the Union and the maintenance of the National government. The Constitution, in all its provisions, looks to an indestructible Union composed of indestructible States."
If a state does leave, does it carry 1/57th of the nations debt with it?
Let the socialist keep the debt since that is what they want, print money and spend. The free states keep the military, guns and core business,since libs don’t like either of them.
Don’t be spoiling their fantasies with grin realities. ;-)
