If rural Colorado residents get their way, Old Glory might need another star. A secession movement has been gaining steam there since early July:
“An open request to Colorado Democratic Party: If our differences are irreconcilable (and I believe most would agree that they are), please state your case why a divorce should not be granted.
Which counties are with Boulder/Denver and which are part of the new state are to be determined by the people in each County – so far we set that aside. However, make the argument why we should stay together…” — 51st State Initiative’s Facebook page
Yesterday you saw some hawks, whose ideology is dying and whose worldview is being discredited every day, launch an attack on Senator Rand Paul by attacking one of his brilliant aides, Jack Hunter.
Jack’s sin in their eyes was having spoken favorably of states’ rights, and negatively of Lincoln. They can’t seem to recognize that states’ rights–even secession–does notequal racism; it constitutes a brake on the feds’ march to totalitarianism. Most modern day states’ rights advocates recognize the sovereignty of the states and their inherent ability to nullify and avoid federal violations of the Constitution in order to protect life and liberty from an overgrown, intrusive federal leviathan that literally now interferes in or spies on every facet of our lives. And most historians and legal scholars who appreciate personal liberty and limited government recognize that the history of Lincoln’s assaults on civil liberties is a topic capable of divergent views and worthy of exposure.
But really, the hawks and neocons weren’t attacking just Jack—who possesses profound intellectual honesty and who has a gift for reducing complex arguments to understandable terms–for his views on federalism. Everything that was “broken” in the “news” story in the Free Beacon has been public information for a long time. It was not hidden. And it was not news. Some of it was youthful hyperbole, and all of it was sliced and diced out of context. [read more]
If these contributors to Time Magazine has their way you will be nothing, but a nanny, to your own children charged with raising children who belong to the government and whose parental rights over your children will trump what you feel is the best interest of your child. To see what a disaster this abhoration will be all you need to do is take a behind the doors look at the foster/CPS system and the inexcusable way it crushes families and children under its socialist, abusive, holocaustic control.
We have seen what reconstruction has done to the South and our children in government re-education camps they call schools and its agenda to annihilate all that the South stands for. We cannot allow Magazine contributors, the UN, or the federal government to steal our children, your future, our cherished gifts from God himself, and rip their very souls from them under a totalitarian control over every aspect of your life; even whether or not you or your child deserves that life.
Let the government know they don’t have the right to even consider such a measure, let alone be allowed to enact it. Constact your representative and let them know we will stop the cancerous growth in this republic these socialists have become and vote out every one of them who believes they actually have a right to regulate or mandate anything in our lives, no matter what their justification. This is why our states need to be sovereign again to govern themselves the way their citizens see fit.

In Federalist 2, John Jay looks out at a nation of a common blood, faith, language, history, customs and culture.
“Providence,” he writes, “has been pleased to give this one connected country to one united people — a people descended from the same ancestors, speaking the same language, professing the same religion … very similar in their manners and customs …”
Are we still that “one united people” today? Or has America become what Klemens von Metternich called Italy: “a mere geographical expression”?
In “Suicide of a Superpower,” out this week, I argue that the America we grew up in is disintegrating, breaking apart along the fault lines of politics, race, ethnicity, culture and faith; that the centrifugal forces in society have now become the dominant forces. [read more]
When my oldest children were young I used to teach them all about Columbus. Something I have not continued. That will change today. The country is turning into a third world nation and we need to celebrate our history and heritage daily or risk losing it. James Edwards has written a masterful post about the importance of Columbus day here is a couple of my favorite paragraphs, but make sure to read the whole article.
…Why? Columbus Day celebrates Christopher Columbus, the first European (white
person) to come to the Western Hemisphere and make the presence permanent.
Columbus Day, in other words, celebrates the advent of the White race in the
so-called New World of the Americas. This, of course, is the last thing that the
multicultural Left wants celebrated.
Their guiding principal, invented by both Trotsky and the Cultural Marxists
at approximately the same time, is best summed up by the late, unlamented Susan
Sontag’s famous quote, “The white race is the cancer of human history.” Who
wants to celebrate cancer? Consequently, Columbus Day has been transformed from
a holiday into an occasion for weeping, wailing, rending of garments and
gnashing of teeth by the Left…
The primary beneficiaries of white rule are the nonwhites that live in
white dominated counties. Blacks in America, for instance, whipped into an
inconsolable frenzy by the Left regarding their imagined mistreatment by whites,
are the only oppressed people in the world who consider themselves impoverished
but routinely own and use cars, cell phones, computers, iPads, flat-screen TVs,
washing machines, clothes dryers and dishwashers, and live in centrally
air-conditioned homes with yards, driveways and carports. They are also provided
enough free food by the government that they suffer, when left to their own
devices, from morbid obesity.
Here’s an interesting article and population pyramids graphic. The South is changing, and rapidly. Not only are we having fewer children, but a large percentage of our population shares more identity with their own culture rather than the Southern culture. The graphic shows, in perfect clarity, that the areas of growth in our Republic are where illegal immigrants are settling.
We as Southerners need to have a serious conversation about how much legal immigration is wise and where it should come from. We have to be serious about dealing with the illegal immigration problem, which is stealing billions from our states and federal government, crowding our schools, burdening our criminal justice system, and impairing our health care system.
This population decline, in my opinion, is a serious threat as many no longer consider family a priority. People are having children later in life and fewer of them; it will eventually have a devastating effect as we try to hold onto our cultural identity. From a religious point of view the Bible is very clear, we should have large families. From a secular point of view, for the South to stay economically powerful, and faithful to our heritage, Southerners need to have more children. It makes sense for our states to encourage large families because it can not be denied that a large population allows us to be competitive with other regions and cultures.
