You do not need to counter me as we are in violent agreement.
So far as I can see the only question that remains now is how is the breaking off to be done? We have given due process all the chances it deserves.
We were never intended to be a Democracy because the conclusion you suggest, Dictatorship, was foreseen and only the Constitution that has been corrupted from the intended form was there to stop the Dictatorship.
I will add to you, a fellow Texan, that Texas is not the refuge some think it is. Texas is rapidly becoming BLUE and the trickle of immigrant invasion that has caused that shift will now become a flood.
First taxes to support all those who will vote themselves a raise from YOUR treasury. I’m talking about your pocket book. Next rising property taxes... you do not now own your own property. You only think you do. It is owned by the taxing authorities. What you ear and what you have will be taken from you forcibly if necessary.
You ask how do we start the break? Well look to history and you may find you agree with me that the seed for it has already begun.
All we need do is fill into the minds of our true countrymen(republican in virtue) the raw truth of our situation with the inevitable outcome and the only real option for saving yourself and our posterity from the self-destructive ravages of the lawless criminal mob.
That is the best advice I can give you as it is the only method that I personalty have found to work. I hope very much that with your own experience and thinking power that you might find other methods and strategies.
being a patriot with a love of liberty and a respect for my own limitations I can only ask that you share what you learn & come up with, so that I too might benefit.
