The Feds have you and me and everyone else enslaved. Will Texans really vote to withdraw from Social Security, Medicare and pay back their share of the national debt?
If you read the history of the American Revolution you will realize that the kind of geographical and political situation which existed in 1760-1776 was wholly different than what it is today. I really don’t think anyone in power is going to seriously consider secession.
Civil Disobedience of Federal Edicts and firm assertion of States Rights is likely to do more to achieve liberty than talk of secession.
States need to take the position that “Congress passed this law, let them try to enforce it.” The Federal Government relies on the States to enforce nearly all their regulatory laws. Even Social Security and Medicare are administered by the states.
Arizona is on the cutting edge of potential Civil Disobedience and Sheriff Arpaio should be considered the George Washington or the Samuel Adams of the peaceful revolution.
I do believe that civil disobedience and State disobedience is part of the formula for change.
The other part that I see as part of the solution is, as Yashcheritsiy would say, separate means of information dissemination.
Another part that I think is critical is a political home for full conservatives, meaning those who are both fiscally and socially conservative.
Another part is a sincere connection to Christianity and to the churches of Christianity from all denomination. Much of America’s problem is spiritual, and without a Great Awakening, there will be no recovery.
The world will not end again with a flood. The rainbow is God’s promise of that. It will instead end with fire.
A precursor to that final fire is this judgment:
“7 The first angel sounded his trumpet, and there came hail and fire mixed with blood, and it was hurled down upon the earth. A third of the earth was burned up, a third of the trees were burned up, and all the green grass was burned up.”
Anything that reminds us of Fire and a Burned Up Earth should push us to include God in any plans for renewal. If this will not be a Christian nation, then it will not be any kind of free nation at all.
There you nailed it. We don't need to seceed, those "in power" need to go.
