“Peaceful Secession” Movement Won’t Give Us Two Americas, But What’s The Downside?

American Flags SC “Peaceful Secession” movement won’t give us two Americas, but Whats the downside?

If secession could only be achieved by force of arms or a court decision, the “Peaceful Secession” movement would be futile. But “secession” need not involve brick and mortar barriers. The spirit of secession can be far more effective in dealing with a federal government gone rogue – it can stop it cold.

But as was the case in 1776, it seems that some who would be expected to come to the “Peaceful Secession” cause have not. Some self –identified conservatives actually seem to believe the only reason to sign a secession petition is because you REALLY believe doing so will bring about a new separate nation in North America. This is the narrowest view of the possibilities involved.

A successful physical secession, however unlikely, is only one reason for signing a petition demanding your state be allowed to “peacefully secede” from the United States.  Aside from this, these petitions assure like- minded people they are not alone, which is a vital ingredient in any conservative movement.  It promotes the strength in numbers we need to help ourselves.

Moreover, it sends a clear message of support to our Republican Representatives in Washington and our state capitals who must carry our message forward. Petitions like these are a sure measure of voter sentiment, and politicians know how to read.

Those who would mock this idea as unattainable are forgetting our nation’s history.

In 1776, fifty five brave men in a nation of 2.5 million American colonists challenged England to a fight to the death. Even knowing England had the largest military in the world and a reputation for cruelty did not deter them from stepping forward.

Can anyone deny that the original Tea Party patriots who dumped English tea into Boston harbor provided encouragement to the signers of our Declaration of Independence?

Does anyone think complete silence in fear of being mocked while our rights and way of life are being destroyed by Barack Obama is the spirit of our Founding fathers, or that such silence will help us escape his clutches?

Whether anyone in or out of the conservative movement is unhappy or rejoices over its existence, the “Peaceful Secession” movement will continue until it either fades out or gets our state level officials fired up.  If we don’t do this now, why should our elected representatives stick out their neck to help us?

If the only downside to this movement is giving David Letterman gag lines at our expense, what have we lost? Besides, he and the Left hate us anyway and will never “like” us until we are dead.  Where is the downside to this?

    I signed several of the Southern States petitions. I'm in Illinois and it's a lost cause……I would rather move to a Southern State but I have to watch my mother for another 5 years or so…I can't just pack up and leave….But I certainly support my Southern Brothers!!!……..I was hoping Hank Williams JR, Ted Nugent, Rush,,,etc would sound the battle horn when the petitions came out but most didn't have much to say about it..

    For America.

    By different States of America, requesting secession, is letting the government know that they are fed up.
    The citizens are speaking loud and clear, and they no longer want to be part of this dysfunctional government. Everyday we as citizens of this country are loosing our freedmons and now obama wants to take away our rights to bear arms, that is a red flag.

    Looking back at history, that is what Hitler did, he took away the citizen guns and then he took control of the citizens by force. We as a country must never allowed that, obama is in bed with the UN and he is capable of shredding our Consitution and replacing it with sharia law. This guy is bad news.
