Re: Dr. Walter Williams on secession
I have come to have very ambivalent views on this subject. Whereas I fall squarely in the pro-Union camp in the WBTS context, I am also extremely concerned about the degree of slavery--economonic, political, cultural--that all Americans are subject to in these latter days. Yes, I was one of those screaming "extremists" at a local TEA Party. I recall it being our duty according to the Founding Fathers--real radicals mind you; nothing like today's Marxist parasites--to overthrow the gov't when it became a REAL threat to the people.
Question is: are we there yet?
A follow-on question might be: do we still have the ca-honies to do what we know must eventually be done if we are to preserve what remains of our freedoms?
Don't get me wrong, I don't advocate rebellion against Fedzilla or any of its black helicopters--no way, no how. I am simply wondering what options remain for reasonable people at this clear crossroads in our history.
