Happy Secession Day

January the 10th in the Year of Our Lord 1861 the State of Florida seceded from the union.

Ordinance of Secession

We, the people of the State of Florida, in convention assembled, do solemnly ordain, publish, and declare, That the State of Florida hereby withdraws herself from the confederacy of States existing under the name of the United States of America and from the existing Government of the said States; and that all political connection between her and the Government of said States ought to be, and the same is hereby, totally annulled, and said Union of States dissolved; and the State of Florida is hereby declared a sovereign and independent nation; and that all ordinances heretofore adopted, in so far as they create or recognize said Union, are rescinded; and all laws or parts of laws in force in this State, in so far as they recognize or assent to said Union, be, and they are hereby, repealed.

Passed 10 Jan 1861

God Bless the Republic of Florida


Well excuse me

The republican leadership(if it can be called that with a straight face)in the Senate is about as useless as “milk dispensers” on a boar hog. The only thing they seem to be able to do is make excuses. Now it appears that President Trump has set his expectations to high. He actually expected to get things done. The justification for that remark, “He’s not from the political world and does not know how things work around D.C.”. Well I am not from around D.C. either but I am from around here, and around here a mans word is his bond. The politicians seem to have forgotten that little tidbit. You did make campaign promises, did you not. One of which was to repeal Obamacare, you said you would repeal Obamacare, you never said that we should not expect too much. You certainly never said that we should not expect you to repeal Obamacare.

It becomes more apparent by the day that a statement made in the past is true, “There is not a dimes worth of difference between the political parties”. The republicans are little more than Whigs, radical red republicans, the democrats are little more than socialists, radical red socialists. Both are for big government, a big centralized powerful government.

From this moment forward I will expect you to do nothing, my expectations of you and from you will be low, to the point of being non-existent. That way I will never be disappointed in you. If by some miracle you do get something done I will get more than I expected. Thanks for finally coming clean with us.

I am pretty much done with you republicans, at least on the national level. I will no longer put or help to put a pretend friend at my side. You Whigs are no friend to America or to me(socialists never are), though you pretend to be. You have proven that a pretend friend will turn on a dime. You may still wind up at my side but I will keep a wary eye one you. We still do pretty well with republicans(not as many pretend friends, Whigs)at the state level here in Florida, well but not great.

While I am here I might as well clear this up for the politicians and the talking heads. There is a special election coming up in the state of Alabama to fill a vacant senate seat. I have heard of it being referred to as Jeff Sessions seat. I would like to point this out, the Senate seat belongs to the state of Alabama, it does not and did not belong to Jeff Sessions. He was just the most recent occupant of that seat. For that matter there is no man or political party that can lay claim to any seat in Congress. The two Senate seats belong to the State, the seats in the House of Representatives belong to that District in that State. Choose wisely Alabama.

When and if the Convention of States convenes there are two things I would like to come from it. 1 The States Rights Initiative, including Nullification and if necessary Secession. 2 Repealing the 17th Amendment.

As long as I mentioned Nullification and Secession I might as well mention this. There is currently a petition going around here in Florida, a petition for the Secession of Florida from the federal union. A petition to place on the ballot for the citizens of Florida to decide to Seceded or not. An uphill struggle for sure but a worthy struggle. I must admit the Republic of Florida sounds pretty good. The movement in Florida is for real and the petition is for real.

On a side note as mentioned above this movement in Florida is real, unlike those who want out because they did not get the President they wanted(California). California and the rest have no chance unless Dixie goes first.

It is not just in Florida but all across the South. There are those of us who see the South as a defeated and occupied land. The Confederate States of America still exists. The Southern people and culture still exist.

God Bless Dixie
God Bless the Southern People and the Southern Culture.

Good grief

Here we are some 18 days after the presidential election. Some 17 days after HRC conceded the election to President-elect Trump. Some 55 days until BHO is out of the Oval Office. Now the leftist Green party candidate wants a recount in some of the “battleground states” and sure enough the DNC piles on.

Nothing will change, Clinton will still have lost and Trump will still be the President-elect. The Green party will still have only about 1% of the vote and no electoral college votes. The rest will still have what they had. I guess the Green Party candidate is worried about voter fraud. No that can’t be it if she were really worried about voter fraud she would sue to have all 50 states do a recount.

I can think of only two reasons for this recount to even take place, given that it is in so few states.

The first is to give legitimacy to the “he’s not my president” crowd. You can rest assured that President-elect Donald Trump is going to be your President, regardless of what you write on your forehead. The Electoral College is why, and with it all states get a say in who the next president is. The presidential election is not a nation wide popularity contest. It is a statewide popularity contest. If a candidate gets the majority of the popular vote in a state, then that candidate is awarded the Electoral College votes for that state. The candidate is not awarded the popular vote for that state. The goal is to win enough states to attain 270 Electoral College votes. The goal is not to win 50% of the popular vote plus 1. Look at it this way, if HRC had gotten every popular vote in every state she won she would have seen no increase in Electoral College votes. So yes, snowflake Donald Trump will be your president because he attained enough Electoral College votes. So now some of your ilk want to do away with the Electoral College, you want a president elected by a nation wide popular vote. You only want to do away with the Electoral College because your candidate lost.

The other is to provide a distraction. Another shiny object to look at. The political elite is not a happy lot, neither are the global elitists. This recount was announced after many started complaining about President-elect Trump’s Cabinet and staff picks. It was not announced after the election. So keep your eyes and ears open.

I understand that some on the left are not very happy with the results of the election. I have been displeased with the results of many elections, I did resist the urge to write on my forehead with a Sharpie in protest. I also resisted the urge to engage in riotous behavior, tearing up stuff and burning stuff down. Actually I had no inclination to do either.

Now I understand that some of you are so displeased you actually want to secede from the United States. You must not have studied history. My ancestors did that many years ago. Darn near succeeded. But do tell us how this works out for you, you know just in case.
