If at first you don’t succeed… The South Will Rise Again!!!!!

Posted by Troy on 13th November 2012 in Political

For those who don’t live in the South, there is a deep seated belief that we totally could have won that thing.  This feeling spawns not out of racism, but out of pride and the hatred of losing.  It’s important to note that going forward this this post.

Twelve states have started a petition to succeed from the union.  While I do appreciate the embarrassment this causes Obama, and I can appreciate the thought, this isn’t the right course of action.  I wouldn’t want states just leaving because the President that got elected isn’t the one they wanted.  However, this particular President is different.  His policies threaten to drag us into the pit of Socialism and the self-destruction that brings.

First of all, this has been tried.  It causes a Civil War.  We lost that one time, we’d probably lose it again.  Doesn’t seem an effective use of time.  Secondly, we need to use primaries to defeat our enemies.  Third, as Fascist as Obama is, Woodrow Wilson was worse.  If we came back from that, we will survive Obama too.  Finally, there is a better option.  All we have to do is have the State Legislatures call a Constitutional Convention.  We could keep the Constitution in place, install a Balanced Budget Amendment, Abolish Congressional Pensions, Set Term Limits, and do other Constitutional Amendments that Congress would never introduce on their own.  You want to scare the hell out of them?  There ya go!

Long Live the Constitution!
