Think Secession

Government should never grow so big that the average person is disfranchised by the system.  When this happens people lose touch with what a moral and responsible government should act like.  I think that the only solution to our overwhelming national debt and foreign policy debacles is for each state to take a step back and begin to govern themselves, for themselves.  Each State in the United States could easily function as an independent nation, there is no question about that.  Are people willing to take that step forward is the next question?

The Declaration of Independence makes more sense today, than ever.  The American Empire just like the English Empire is/was too big for its own good.  The massive amounts of debt that the Empire creates is too much of a strain for the populations to handle.  Its time to look for small, responsible governments (starting with your own community), its time to think secession.

    We can’t secede when we are in debt. American consumers owe $14 trillion. That is 36% more than the national debt. So, if there is anyone to blame, let’s look in our own driveways. Once we, as consumers, are free from our bonds of debt, than we can talk about secession.

    Americans will never be free from debt as long as you have a central bank. The reason is The Fed’s entire ponzi scheme is built on lending. I say we need to secede and free ourselves from overbearing government and a monetary system that doesn’t favor sound money or responsibility.

    “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.”

    I can’t say it any better than that.
