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.
I see no justice in fighting for a people who have in their hearts abandoned the cause of liberty. I see only justice in allowing them who desire chains to wear them while them who desire freedom to seek it.
To do that requires some level of separation whether that separation be thou real federalism or secession is up to Washington politicians. I am with you in that I too would very much like to see a Federalist solution. But i do not see any solution if we do not push for that separation in whatever form we can get it.
One has to create a divide to sue for compromise, less one be ignored by a Federal capital incapable of hearing any but the loudest of voices and gravest of immedete threats. That being said if push came to shove I make no apologies about desiring an Independence country of vinous men & women. Nor am I above war to accomplish that end. Freedom is a commodity so valuable i cannot foresee any price too high in obtaining or preserving it.
As always do what you think is right, but understand politics is and always has been the art of the possible. If wish our dreams to see light, we must maneuver the land & situation so that they are in the domain of the politically possible.
