Petitions for secession are proliferating. People from 49 states have petitioned the White House to leave the Union. I understand the frustration with an overbearing Federal government which oversteps its bounds daily. I fully support the reassertion of the 10th amendment as amended by the 13, 14th, 15th, 19th, 24th, and 26th amendments. It is vital to restore a measure of balance to the system. As an American soldier who is dedicated to preserving our liberty and the American way of life, I do not support in any way secession. As a matter of fact, I think the secession movement will build in popularity, but fade within a year to background noise once people start thinking about its implications. Can we strengthen America by tearing it apart? Do we win by quitting? Should the American experiment be at risk every time there is a close election? Is your love for America and allegiance conditioned upon smooth sailing or getting your way? Should we allow the Conservative movement to be marginalized by embracing an extreme reaction to a bad circumstance (the decline in liberty, culture, and prosperity)? I love the United States. I love it in good times. I love it in bad times. I love it in times of prosperity. I love it in times of economic challenge. I love it when the majority agrees with me. I love it when I am in the minority. In the U. S., the minority still has all of the liberty of the majority and the freedom to build a new majority in a couple of years. When you get to within 1% or so why would you quit? I say stop whining, love America enough to sacrifice time and effort. Educate yourself then your fellow Americans on the moral superiority of liberty. Stand up for our values in the culture. Be willing to take a few slings and arrows. Fight for the America that you love in the arena of ideas. Be willing to listen to your fellow Americans because we are not right about everything. Show your love for America by making it better and supporting your Congress especially the People’s House, and the states. Push to restore the Constitutional balance. The problems in America are that we do not follow the Constitution; we have abandoned our traditional Judeo Christian ethic; and we have forgotten that free markets are the life blood of a free people. Let us commit to standing strong and restoring the America that we love– One nation under GOD, with liberty and justice for all. May GOD bless these United States of America and may they always be so.
