"What a maroon...."
"DumpDC"Six Letters That Can Change History
Special to The Libertarian Enterprise
Today, I'm announcing a new website blog at: www.dumpdc.com
At DumpDC, we are dedicated to following the fast-growing secessionist movement in the united States of America.
Notice how I wrote "united States of America." This is how Thomas Jefferson referred to the proposed new nation in the Declaration of Independence. He declared the states to be sovereign nations first, anticipating a loose confederation of the several states to follow.
I won't take the time in this introduction to chronicle the complete history of secession in North America. It's obvious that the English colonies seceded from England in 1776. The Confederate States of America tried to secede in 1861, and failed. So, secession's batting average in America is .500.
Still a pretty good average.
Secession is on the lips of many Americans today. When they look at a Federal Government that is spinning wildly out of control, state secession begins to have an allure as a remedy. American has gone from a nation of sovereign states with a carefully defined Federal Government to a nation where states are but subservient territories of a rapacious, tyrannical ruling entity that entirely ignores any restrictions on its power.
I'm opening this blog up to guest commentators, guest writers and a lively debate about secession. We want to be a major forum and clearinghouse for secession thought. We'll be looking for links to many other like-minded persons and websites.
I've started the debate by posting some of the articles I've written over the past months. These articles have appeared in The Libertarian Enterprise and LewRockwell.com.
Let us, as ladies and gentlemen, keep our debate and discourse civil. I'm the Editor, so your comments and articles will have to get past me before they appear on the blog.
Into the breech! CHARGE!!!!
