Will nation 'submit to government without limits'?

Published: 17 hours ago
by BOB UNRUH

Contemporary opinion, including that of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, says a state’s right to secede died with the hundreds of thousands of bloodied victims of the Civil War and that the sentiment behind the dozens of petitions on the White House website seeking permission for most of the 50 individual governments to leave the union will be fruitless.

But historians would note that Thomas Jefferson, a “pole star among political philosophers because he based his politics on the eternal, self-evident, fundamental truths that all men are created free and equal and that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inherent and inalienable rights, among which are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness,” believed states have a right to leave the U.S.

It was in a letter to William B. Giles on Dec. 26, 1825, that Jefferson addressed the issue after participating in the fight over separation from England, the rise of a new nation and the tribulations it faced in its first decades.

In a letter marked “not intended for the public eye,” Jefferson wrote that states “should separate from our companions only when the sole alternatives left, are the dissolution of our Union with them, or submission to a government without limitation of powers.”

He continued,“Between these two evils, when we must make a choice, there can be no hesitation.”

His letter, posted online at Constitution.org , sheds light on the arguments raised on the Obama administration’s online petition site, where dozens of petitions are seeking permission for virtually all of the states to leave the union.

You are aware of what Country you are in aren't you and how it was founded? I am not sure. LOL!

It is about Tyranny and the separation from it, just like the Nation was founded on and then the Founding Generation warned of and prepared for to happen again.

The list of current Grievances against Obama, the Congress, and the Bureaucrats makes the list against King George III look tame.

I basically agree with you..I really think it could happen if the US allows the UN to govern our 2nd amendment rights.
Any move for the Peoples Arms will trigger Lexington and Concord all over again.

Texans going wild with 'secession fever,' bumper stickers everywhere

9 hrs ago

Move over, "Everything is bigger in Texas." The Lone Star state has a new favorite bumper sticker and it's a simple one-worder: "Secede." Yes, it appears that "secession fever," as some columnists are calling it, has taken over the red-leaning state following the post-election petitions — and sales of the stickers are just one sign.
Among others, a perennial GOP candidate named Larry Scott Kilgore has announced he's running for governor and will legally change his name to Larry SECEDE Kilgore — yes, with "secede" in all-caps. His web page also declares, "Secession! All other issues can be dealt with later." [Source]

Texas Prepares for Sovereignty if U.S. Defaults - Rep. James White Files Texas Self Sufficiency Act HB 568

By David Bellow

State Rep. James White has proposed a bill that will require the leaders of Texas to start crunching the numbers and figure out what Texas would look like if it had to be self sufficient... limited or no federal support....
OUR OWN COUNTRY.... oops, I am getting a little ahead of myself, haha. Hey, I didn't say secession but that certainly comes to mind when thinking about the federal government having a financial meltdown and cutting off most or all support to the States.
