So You Want to Secede from the Union…

Good luck with that.


Let me tell you a secret. It’s a secret to everybody. Nothing would make me happier than to live in a country where our own conservative governmental values rule. To live in a country where we can make our own wealth and decisions based on the principles of capitalism and hard work, to me, is an absolutely amazing concept. It’s what the United States was founded on, and it’s principles that conservatives still hold true today.

But seceding from the union? Really? Come on. I know the idea sounds attractive because of your pent up anger and frustration, but let’s look at this from another perspective.

Our country is well on it’s way to Fabian socialism. Shouldn’t, instead of trying to run from the fundamental problems our country faces, we be trying to fix the country instead? We still have a system that allows us to put people in authority that molds the country in the correct ways. A mini-revolution, if you will. Let’s focus all of our energy on that task instead of giving up and trying to start anew.

We have built together, over the past 300+ years, a glorious country. I would much rather see it united than divided.

I firmly believe that the God-inspired ideals of this model of government will prevail. If things get too bad, revolution will come. It always does. Perhaps even a bloody revolution will be necessary. But I don’t want things to come to that. I want to live in the United States of America.
