Secession and Me

with one comment

As we stand on the precipice of completely giving away U.S. sovereignty to secure the place of the permanent under-class in this country, to secure votes for unscrupulous politicians, and to ensure slave labor for unscrupulous businesses, I would like to expound upon a few lines from my Introduction post.  In my introduction I said that “the South was correct and Lincoln was a douche.” I know that many folks will have adverse reaction to that statement. There are many that would ascribe all sorts of almost supernatural goodness to the name Abraham Lincoln. From “The Great Emancipator” to “The Liberator.” The portrait painted of Lincoln in grade school is that of a messianic figure that delivered the nation from the evils of slavery while holding together both North and South as they were ripping themselves apart. The problem is, none of that bullshit is true.

Lincoln’s true legacy, what he really left behind, is the death of States’ Rights. This nation was intended to be made up of states, each a nation unto themselves, with the Federal Government existing only to regulate trade between the states, and provide for a common defense. The Federal Government was never intended to have the power to make states have drug, or alcohol laws. The Federal Government was never supposed to have the authority to tell the states whether abortion or gay marriage should legal. These matters were to be left to the states. The idea was that if California wanted to have all the legal drugs that it wants, and Alabama wanted to outlaw all drugs, they could do as they please. And if in ten or twenty years Alabama went to shit because of their restrictive drug policies, and California flourished, well we would know who was right. Then the rest of the states could say, wow, look at California, we want to be like that! It provided a way for new ideas to be tested in practice, and to succeed or fail on their merits.

The Federal Government is; however, supposed to regulate immigration. What a bucket full of fail that is. Instead of securing the borders, the government is making sure the legal drinking age is 21, and using the IRS to make sure the wrong groups don’t get tax exempt status. How do we change this? Secession is the only way. Not even necessarily seceding, but the mere credible threat of secession of Texas, Arizona, and New Mexico should be enough to keep the government in check. Thanks to ole Honest Abe and his military occupation of the Confederate States of America, the threat of secession is not credible. Secession will mean war, and no one wants to fight a civil war when they are on the side without a military.

Emote whatever you wish about the evils of slavery. Slavery would have died one way or another. The immigration “reform” bill being batted about in Congress will pass because of the collusion between politicians, business, and media despite the fact that most citizens are against amnesty, and would prefer the deportation of illegals. How can we fight against a government no longer interested in the will of the people? A far better man than me has answered that question, and I leave you with his quote:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
