$16T in debt and a president and elite media and voters demanding we squander yet more of our future. The Left, of course, has no future – they have no children. To expect them to care about freedom or liberty or property in a future in which they don’t believe is foolish at best – and dangerous at worst.
When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the cases which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness — that to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, that when any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it. [emphasis mine]
It is time for the citizens of the Red States, the only states with growing populations and so a proven interest in the future of American freedom and liberty, to dissolve the bands that connect us with the subjects of the Blue States, those whose subjects demand to indebt the children of Red State citizens for the folly of Blue State policy, Blue States being in population decline nearly across-the-board.
Blue State voters do NOT believe in the future – so why are we paying them to devour our wealth, liberties and freedoms now? Why do we allow them to set policy for the future, from schools their nonexistent children will not attend – but ours will, to the environment in which their nonexistent children will not live – but ours will?
We two groups – Red and Blue – no longer believe in the same culture, philosophy, economics or laws. We no longer both believe in freedom, hard work, earned property… or America – which always has been more an idea than a geography.
No reason on earth exists for me to lower the standard of living of MY children to support the policies of a Progressive Left that is anti-American, anti-Liberty, anti-Freedom and anti-Property to its very core. Nor for ANY Conservative or Centrist parent to do so. Throughout history, the policies of Progressives have resulted in the destruction of nations, cities, communities, hopes, families and lives.
There are NO exceptions in the historical record.
It is time to go. Sooner is better. And it is not written, anywhere, that our current state boundaries are sacred. CA, CO and other Blue states are, geographically, mostly Red counties. They, too, must separate for the sake of freedom and their childrens’ futures.
At some point the question no longer is “If,” but “when.”
The “if” has been answered.
“Now” is the answer to “when.”
It is time to go.
