The man I voted for as President said the following. The man or woman far more Americans voted for could never say this, because that man or woman could not now, nor would they ever, understand that some Americans would rather stand divided than kneel united. They embrace outright fascism because most of their constituents are clamoring for it — just like the German masses did when they voted for Hitler. If Americans of good will who voted for any of those men or women cannot see this by now, their eyes are shut, and yet another tedious history lesson will not change the fact they will never open them until it’s too late.
How do I know?
Because it’s already too late.
Enjoy the ride, America — even if some of us are prepared to unbuckle our freight cars before we reach your all-too-final destination.
Just my extremist whack-job opinion, 4.23.09
“Secession is a good principle. Just think of the benefits that would have come over these last 230-some years if the principle of secession had existed. That means the federal government would always have been restrained, not to overburden the states with too much federalism, too many federal rules and regulations. But since that was all wiped out with the Civil War, the federal government has grown by leaps and bounds and we have suffered the consequences, and we need to reconsider this. It’s not un-American to think about the possibility of secession. This is something that’s voluntary. We came together voluntarily. A free society means you can dissolve it voluntarily. That was [what] the whole issue was about.”
