A Sad Day or a GREAT Day?

Last week (Thursday, 19 May), the House of Representatives in Washington voted to ban the use of the Confederate Battle Flag in VA cemeteries. A sad day for American history.

The 2017 VA funding bill was amended by Rep. Jared Huffman, a Democrat from California. The VA currently permits the display of the Confederate flag on Memorial Day as well as on Confederate Memorial Day at 131 facilities.

Huffman's district stretches along the Pacific coastline from the Oregon border south to San Francisco. There is one VA cemetery in his district. On the other hand there are seventy-three VA cemeteries in the fourteen States represented in the Southern National Congress. That makes 55.7% of the cemeteries affected by this sorry piece of legislation in the South, including that one so conveniently placed on Arlington, the Custis Plantation, the ancestral home of Mary Custis Lee (Robert E. Lee's wife). That was another sad day in American history.

The vote was by roll call. The final tally was 265 Yeas, 159 Nays, 1 voting Present, and 8 not voting. Of the votes cast, 62.5% favoured the Prohibition; 37.5% favoured keeping our Southern symbol flying.

Separating the fourteen States of the SNC from the rest of the Empire, the vote was completely reversed. Of seventy-three Southern votes cast, only 37.6 favoured the Prohibition; 62.4% favoured keeping the Battle Flag flying.

The South has lived under occupational military force since 1865 and some have gotten comfortable with the situation. The State delegations of Maryland and Florida were the only southern ones to side with the Empire. But we recognize that Maryland has become a Yankee clone and Florida suffers under the mass immigration of despotic Yankees and hand-out dependent Cubans and Mexicans.

Thirty-eight States have decreed what twelve States can do. We could have been protected with the use of a "concurrent minority" which was touted by Calhoun. But that option is not allowed by the Empire.

So our only real protection from such tyranny is a complete and immediate withdrawal from the Columbian (D.C.) Empire. That will be a great day in American history.

I recently had a business leader post this statement, "Most people would rather live with comfortable lies than uncomfortable truths." (He wasn't agreeing with Al Gore.) He was referring to the majority of men who hide behind their beer and baseball games; to that majority who are quick to reflect on football stats and who is the best team in the SEC, but don't have the slightest idea of how much liberty "their" government has taken from them in the last year.

We need Southern men (and women) who would lay everything on table; willing to sacrifice their all for the future of their homeland and the well-being of their children and grandchildren. That will make for another great day in American history.

Will YOU join your State's SNC delegation? Will YOU begin today to WORK for a better tomorrow?

 

Worth Quoting

If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace.  We ask not your counsels nor your arms.  Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you.  May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.

Samuel Adams

 

What is liberty without wisdom and without virtue?
