“When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these rights 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.”
Declaration of Independence
A growing rift has developed in this country between conservatives, who believe in a limited Constitutional government based on the principles as envisioned by our Founding Fathers, and liberals, who believe that the Constitution and its principles are open to any interpretation that allows the government to expand its powers in unlimited forms. The conservatives understand that this country is bankrupt and the liberals don’t care.
For years I have believed that the only way the United States was going to reverse its course and return to the principles that this country was founded on, would be to elect a strong conservative president. However, even the strongest president will not be able to control a Congress whose self- interests’ conflict with the desires of the American people. Therefore, while the 2012 elections were very important, I do not believe they will have a significant impact on our present course.
I then decided that a better solution would be for the States to unite to battle the over-reaching Federal government. The governors would have to ban together and tell their Congressmen that they worked for the state, not the Federal government. That, if the Congressmen refused to work for the best interests of the States and limit the power of the Federal Government, that the governors would have to make sure that they were not re-elected. I no longer see this as a viable option because the states receive so much of their funding from the Federal government that they would be afraid to upset the apple cart.
Now, I believe that the only option that will allow the people to regain control over the Federal government is for the conservative States to secede from the Union. West Virginia was the last state to successfully secede from another state (i.e. Virginia in 1863.) On our 150th anniversary, now is time for us to lead the country and secede from the United States and form a new country that is founded on the Constitutional principles as envisioned by our Founding Fathers.
The only way to save this great country is to start over and rebuild it based on conservative Christian principles. We need to learn from our past mistakes and build a new constitution that protects the states and the people from the Federal Government. The new country will rise from the ashes like the Phoenix and return control to the people. We can build the most prosperous country in the world by limiting the powers of government and returning control to the people. I invite all conservative states to join us in this quest to save our country before it’s too late. I recommend that the new country be called THE CONSERVATIVE STATES OF AMERICA.
Please join with me in my mission to save the United States through secession.
