It started the day after the presidential “election” was over, as vote totals began to come in from around the country and some folks began realizing that, in many areas, Obama had gotten around 110% of the vote. If you could believe some of the vote totals you would be forced to conclude that no more than a mere handful of Romney supporters turned out nationwide while Obama supporters continued to vote and vote and vote.
As to the question of whether there was vote fraud, you could ask, will the sun rise in the east tomorrow?
Someone in Slidell, Louisiana started a petition for the state of Louisiana to peacefully secede from the Union and within a few days all fifty states had people starting up almost identical petitions. Every state that supposedly gets over 25,000 signatures on their petition is supposed to have it posted on the White House website “We the People.” The White House promises to answer these petitions at some point. Let’s not kid ourselves. We all know what the answer will be, or close to it—secession is treason and the “Civil War” decided that question anyway, so you all, now that you have put your two cents worth in, just go home and shut up so Mr. Obama can get on with the thorny job of redistributing your wealth to his friends—beginning with your 401-K savings. They won’t quite phrase it that way, but you get the idea.
That, or something close to it is about what I expect as an answer from the White House. Interestingly enough, at this point in time, there are already seven states that have gotten considerably more than the 25,000 signatures necessary to get their petitions posted—all of them in the South. This heart-warming development shows you that, in spite of 150 years of Yankee/Marxist public schooling in the South during ongoing “reconstruction” everyone has not totally bought into the big lie.
According to http://www.examiner.com for November 18th “The petitions sprang up almost immediately following the election, and now there are more than 675,000 signatures on 69 separate petition pages.” The same article then asks “should there be a fear of retaliation by the government for those who choose to sign a petition? The answer to that may be a ‘yes’, in light of President Obama urging his supporters to vote for ‘revenge’ and presidential advisor Valerie Jarrett’s ‘payback time’ and ‘the ones that opposed us will get what they deserve’ comments before the election.”
Such comments from the White (Red) House hierarchy show you the moral tenor of the administration that welfare loafers and guilt-ridden white liberals helped (along with creative voting) to send back to Washington. Ordinary American citizens exercising what should be their First Amendment rights may now have to fear retaliation from a vindictive White House that doesn’t like what they say. So much for the “land of the free.”
While I am happy for the discussion of the secession issue this petition drive has generated, I realize that this is not the way to get secession from the Union. This would be the same as the colonists in 1776 begging King George to let them leave the British Empire. And although we did secede from Great Britain, we did it with our Declaration of Independence, which was actually a secession document
There are a lot of things to be dealt with regarding the secession question. You have to have a people culturally ready to secede. At present we are not ready, emotionally, maturity-wise, or in other ways. Although the sentiment is there, for which I am thankful, we, at this point, need to grow into the kind of culture that will be ready to handle the responsibilities of secession. The Southern states that seceded in 1861 were the products of a biblically-based society and worldview. Even in the South we don’t have as much of that anymore. More’s the pity. Before we are ready for political secession we first need to reassert our cultural secession from the horrendous world system around us. We need to find biblically-sound Christian churches and adhere to them, departing from some of these “feel good” mega-temples some of us attend. We need to start taking our kids out of the government school system and consciously looking for Christian alternatives—sound Christian alternatives with a generational worldview. We need to shut the television off and stop listening to trash music, trash reality shows, and all of the other meaningless drivel that the One World establishment puts out there for us to bemuse ourselves with so that we won’t take the time to learn to think critically. And all of this, as well as other worthwhile pursuits, will take awhile. It won’t be accomplished the day after tomorrow.
Then there is the legality of secession. Some will say it is no longer legal, but, should that be true, you cannot prove that it was illegal in 1861, or that it was treason. That is plain hogwash. If it was legal in 1861 and the Confederate States government never surrendered, then that original secession is probably still legal today no matter what happened after it.
There is a lot to deal with regarding the secession question and we had better start to learn to come to grips with it because it is not going away, even if our current Marxist government tries to annul the Bill of Rights. All they will do is to drive it underground where it will flourish. As for this Marxist crowd in Washington, they had best start looking at what they have for an agenda in the light of Psalm 2.
