In regards to your editorial regarding the idea of secession, I am afraid that you owe an apology to all of our founding fathers and all of our ancestors who fought to free us from Great Britain. What did you celebrate this past July 4th if you truly believe that secession is stupid?
Let it be known that I am one of those “stupid” people who believe in the right of secession. I also believe that it is inevitable. I say that it is inevitable because a government that spits in the face of God, as the U.S. Government has done for decades is doomed and headed for destruction. From an economic standpoint, a government that is thirty trillion dollars in debt and still spending like a drunken sailor, is not going to be around much longer. This reality makes your concern about social security and Medicare laughable. For your information, there are no "existing funds" for those programs. The Federal Government is printing money out of thin air and further enslaving our great grandchildren.
A peaceful breakup of this forced union is the only political option before us. The Federal Government is one of the largest criminal organizations in the world. What else can be said about a government that operates outside of its own constitution, and has proven that it is perfectly willing to kill its own citizens with impunity (I can offer many examples for the uninformed if needed)?
You do tell the truth when you point out that, as a society, we are addicted to Federal money. You fail to add however that this is by design. Because of this addiction to federal money, our people have had a slave mentality for at least five generations. Added to this problem is the fact that the current generation is so numbed by entertainment, sports, and porn, that they are almost incapable of rational thought. These are very real and practical problems that stand in the way of any hope for a free and prosperous future for our posterity. And, this is why I pray daily for a spiritual awakening among our people, because, ultimately a return to the Lord Jesus Christ and adherence to His law is the only way to have liberty and prosperity.
In short, we in Mississippi and our neighboring states can bow in repentance and sever ties with this union or, we can share in its coming judgement. If we choose the latter our breakup will most likely be a result of financial collapse much like that of the former Soviet Union. Because I love my children and my neighbors, I pray that we choose the former.
