Quote Of The Month

From the K Blog:

… In the US the South remains a distinctive sub-nation, but I think that any serious neo-Confederate revival is, alas, a pipedream. Karlin speculates that the US could break up along ethnocultural and economic lines, like those proposed by Joel Garreau (9 nations) or Colin Woodard (11 nations). Michael H Hart proposed dividing the US into two nations along county lines, to be determined by voting patterns. Basically a red ocean full of blue islands.

I don’t think those scenarios are realistic either. But a return to the Articles of Confederation period (1781-1788) just might be. Before the United States became a unitary nation it was an alliance of sovereign states. The modern template for how this would work is the European Union. Yes, the EU has a terrible reputation in our circles, but the EU is a toothless tiger compared to the all-powerful federal government in the US, and the much-maligned Brussels bureaucracy is positively microscopic compared to the behemoth in DC.

This way the 50 states would become fully sovereign nations, with all the powers that Germany or France or any other countries in the EU enjoy, while still keeping an attachment to the United States, which would transform itself from an independent nation to a transnational organization. The globalists and multiculturalists could have their own nations (e.g. California & New York), and the nationalists and patriots could have theirs (e.g. Texas & Kentucky)…

TL Davis: The Second Amendment Is A Test

The Feds freed privately-held slaves by the War of Northern Aggression and enslaved everyone (including the emancipated) in the country at the very same time.

Now the Deep State believes that the remaining pretense can be abandoned.

HRC was planned to preside over that dissolution.

But traditional Americans had a different plan.

The test continues.

As does the push for ever-greater centralized power in DC.

Whether defined as reputation-destroying humiliation and possible prison sentences, or “merely” the further autodelegitimization of the American socialist omnigovernment, the swirl is accelerating.
