Quotation of the day

"Secession filled me with hope, not as the destruction but as the redemption of Democracy...."
--Lord Acton to Robert E. Lee, November 4, 1866

In our time, secession may prove to be our best hope for freedom.

This nonsense is so very, very sad.

Grow up.

I would be interested in knowing how you think my post "The state of secessionism in Ohio" qualifies as being childish.

Or did you arrive at that conclusion by reading just this one post?

You don't even have the creativity to use a fake name "Mr. Anonymous"? Please. Typical cowardly, leftist-statist Internet driveby.

You mean 'nonsense' like this?:

That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

Go home. To England.
