Colorado to be a RED state in 2012!

“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 Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.”
Is it possible for a union to exist where there is not unity? The advance of Western Socialism; the FDR-style statist philosophy with its metastasizing bureaucracy and liberty-sucking administrators are completely incompatible with a free republic which is populated with old-style patriots, and the rugged individualists of America. But both do now exist. They may not cohabitate in a comfy compromise of self-prostitution, but patriots and statists dwell shoulder to shoulder in virtually all settings and walks of American life. There is a tenuous balance, with both sides teetering on a narrow point of self-interest; the statist with the self-interest of security, and the patriot with the self-interest of liberty. At what point will the balance shift to one side or the other? Or will it break, each side separating into states and communities and creating a sort of piebald polity of Socialist nihilist states spattered among Liberty-loving, God-fearing communities and regions throughout the United States?

I have often pondered the Founding Documents and their roles in our day for our time. I believe that they have the quality and power of scripture, to guide men in the wise use of free agency, and to articulate the immutable principles by which the Children of God are made free. I am more convinced now than ever that the Founding Fathers were as much inspired by the Mind of God to protect us from the present dictatorship of the Federal Government, as they were to originally form a more perfect Union. The Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution may give us the apparatus with which we will dissolve The United States in order to save the Union; to restore the Union where there is no unity.
The United States is regarded by the present dictatorship to be merely numerous small arms of the central government, which minister locally the mandates of the central dictatorship. It is not a benevolent dictatorship, but a system that has fallen into wickedness. The central government is in the clutches of social revolutionaries who, decades ago, deposed God as the source of wisdom and the resource of succor. The laws of God have been subsumed to the rules of men and are used, not to encourage moral conduct, but to manipulate human conscience for the purposes of the wicked state. Not all players within the scaffolding of the state operation are personally wicked, but the philosophies of the Founding have been so perverted and reduced as to leave a dearth of godliness where once the Creator was the administrator of rights and laws.
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…
We are a nation of saints and perverts, creators and users, lovers and plunderers, parents and executioners. I wonder if at the time the Founders agreed upon the creation of states within a Federation, with a specific and limited relationship to the Central Government, they understood that 225 years into the future the diversity and disparity of the states would save the people of the Union from the implementation of complete tyranny.
There will be a movement in which individual states, and in some cases, regions of states, will secede from The United States. It will be a sort of Secessionist Club, whose front of battle is one more of the ideological warfare of the pen and less the bloodletting of the sword. The secessionists will be individuals and groups of Americans who refuse to countenance the wickedness of the central government. They will be patriots who understand the roles of the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution as proclamations of liberty to the world, and not just pertaining to a swath of land from the Atlantic to the Pacific coasts of North America. They will be those whose allegiance is to God. They will be those who reject the erosive consequences of permissive laws that, in truth, have been designed to destroy the commandments of God and replace them with the norms of a narcissistic and childish culture. They will be those who have armed themselves in defiance of a destructive government. They will be prepared for a revolution.
…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.
The new secessionists are the most sober and realistic of all Americans. They are tolerant and inclusive. They are self-reliant people of faith, who live their lives honorably. They have never before considered themselves to be revolutionaries. Their loyalty to the United States is firm. They love their flag and the republic for which it stands. The 21st Century secessionists will be pushed to the utmost extremity of toleration, having looked on while the most hallowed institutions of their society, marriage, families, life, their churches, their schools, their history, are savaged by forces within the culture and within the government. They have obeyed the laws which have been turned against them by a corrupt judicial system where impartiality has given way to advocacy, and blind justice has been replaced by activists who target the foundations of sound society for demolition. And their breaking point is nigh. They can no longer bear the blasphemies of a government gone mad with power over the lives and bodies of persons. They can no longer tolerate the injustices of a state that takes from each according to his ability and gives to each according to his need. They will no longer sit by while marriage, family, children, and religious truths are crushed by politically correct initiatives that are designed to accommodate perversions of identity and the dereliction of Godly responsibility, and which mock and reject absolute moral truths. They understand the dangers of their secession, but being Americans of austere minds and temperate actions, they will secede only as a last-ditch effort to restore the Union before it is completely and utterly lost and transformed into a fallen, amoral, autocratic, socialist state of weaklings, non-producers, and idolaters.
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government.
The power to effect peaceful secession lies in the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution. Those populations who understand that life is so dear an endowment from God that we are obligated to defend it from both personal attack and a tyrannical government, will be the strongholds where the central government will have the least power to control the people and confiscate their property. This article in the Bill of Rights , more than any other, is the guarantor of liberty.
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
The secession of 2012 is so unlike the secession of 1860-61, so as to be wholly opposite in character and purpose. The Southern States seceded and brought upon themselves civil warfare in an effort to forever preserve the practices of slave holding and slave trading. They abandoned the Union in order to preserve institutionalized bondage, and an unjust and wicked social system that denigrated an entire race of Americans. They fought to preserve their desecrated Christian ethics which had been used to convinced slave owners and overseers that their “racial superiority” exempted them from having to “love thy neighbor” if that neighbor had skin of a deeper hue.
The modern secession will be in the name of life and liberty. It will take place in order to preserve equal, God-given, human rights for all, from conception to the natural end of life, and the freedom to move, and act, and think, and prosper in the way each man sees fit. It will occur to preserve the ideas in the Founding Documents, and in defiance of an unconstitutional government. It will be a necessary step in preserving and perpetuating the notion that government gains its power from the governed, and that the consent of the governed is the only means by which it can function. Secession 2012 will purge wickedness and unrighteous dominion out of high government. It is drastic and it is a frightening prospect. But more frightening is the potential that wicked people who now have great power in our government and social institutions, will destroy the agency of Americans, and concurrently jettison the indispensable components of religion, godliness, and self-reliance out of our language and culture. To join the Secessionist Club may be the only way…
