“Washington will not allow any state out of its grasp. IMHO, a modest demonstration of US military might would be enough to change most petitioners minds. I believe our own government would use more force as an example against its own people, than it would against others. I also believe many secessionists would gladly fight and die, but the war wouldnt last for more than a day, if that. I know its possible to secede, I just dont think its possible to succeed.”
Die for a chance to show Washington & the world that we ain’t no lot of slaves, that we still yern for freedom. I think that is a cause worth dying for.
In any even I think it should justifiably be regarded as a political disaster worthy of condemnation in the strongest of terms by the whole world.
After we supported the sepertist in Bosnian and around the world. To turn our backs upon the will of the people in our own land would be a supremely hypocritical move. It would undermine the very notion that America is a democracy.
Ha, Good point!!! Rename Houston Kosovo. How about those poor chechens, denied their own country by big mean Russia.
That’s the sad fact. Our leaders ARE hypocritical, and our once strong, free nation is washed up. The government doesn’t give a damn if their hypocrisy is exposed; in fact, they seem to relish it, especially if it confuses and demoralizes the spirit of the good people of this land.
That doesn’t mean we can’t put up the good fight. But no, FRiend, I’m afraid the sad truth is, the government will not allow power, resources and tax revenue to secede and slip through its greedy, controlling grasp. That’s all we are to them, a nation of consumers who feed at the trough and then, one way or another, feeds the insatiable monster.
I’m sure I’m just as angry and upset as you are, and I don’t know the answers. I realize I’m terribly depressed, and maybe I’m not seeing things as clearly as I think I am; but I feel it’s best to stay and fight to get my country back, no matter the personal costs.
