Detractors make unfounded claims to rubbish growing secession movement
By Steve Watson
Nov 16, 2012
Several detractors have claimed that American citizens who sign petitions in favor of secession are advocating a new civil war, and can rightfully be stripped of their firearms.
As the secession movement continues to grow in all 50 states, with the total signatories to petitions approaching one million people, critics on the left and the right have claimed that the motivation of its proponents is to violently rise up.
These detractors are most likely attempting to poison the well of the overall issue, or at best have completely failed to grasp the concept of secession.
In a ludicrous, sardonic and sophomoric piece in the London Guardian, Diane Roberts suggests, that those in favor of secession want to “re-enact the American civil war”. In between labeling anyone who supports the idea a “white supremacist” or “fundamentalist zealot”, she argues that secessionists are “sore losers” that want to “return to 1861″.
Roberts says that the idea has “zero legal status”, and argues that the tenth amendment is null and void.
One canny commenter points out that for months on end the London Guardian has been carrying pieces that debate and even openly support the breakaway of Scotland as the will of its people, but is now carrying articles dismissing the legitimate ability for the people of any state in the US to the same right.
Roberts has a strange bed fellow to share her misguided opinions in Glenn Beck, who also claimed that anyone signing a secession petition would have to be “dumb” because they are advocating a violent uprising.
“You’re putting your name on a list that goes directly to the White House, and you’re putting your name on a list and saying, ‘yeah I think we should secede, I think there should be a Civil War,’” Beck said.
Meanwhile, gun rights advocate David Codrea points out that some are suggesting that if Americans sign a secession petition, they may be considered to have renounced their citizenship, and therefore no longer have the right to bear arms.
“Among the enumerated disqualifying triggers in U.S. Code rendering one a prohibited person, forbidden by federal law to own a gun, is someone “who, having been a citizen of the United States, has renounced his citizenship.”” Codrea writes.
Clearly both of these notions are laughable, as no one is advocating war or renouncing their citizenship. They are merely expressing the opinion that the federal government has become unwaveringly corrupt and gone rogue.
As we described at length in our editorial yesterday, Secessionists do not want to be part of a separate country, they wish to use the terms of the Declaration of Independence to reconstitute and restore the Republic.
In any case, under the tenth amendment, individuals have the right to remain “common law” citizens of their states or counties while declaring their independence from the federal government.
As we clearly stressed, the call is for the states, which created the federal government, to instigate a cultural restoration in the spirit of the bill of rights – a newly unified America under the Constitution – and not a violent overthrow.
In the following video, Alex Jones explains how sections of the establishment media are attempting to characterize the entire movement as a plot to bring down America when in fact America has already been captured and taken over by the political and financial elite.
The steadfast libertarian captain, U.S. Rep. Ron Paul, is bidding farewell to Congress and has a call-to-arms for his legions of tech-savvy followers: The Internet is the savior of liberty. “The internet will provide the alternative to the government/media complex that controls the news and most political propaganda. This is why it’s essential that the internet remains free of government regulation,” he said, in his farewell address. After 23 years in America’s most esteemed body, Paul is leaving his work to a vocal minority of small government digital warriors.
“I have thought a lot about why those of us who believe in liberty, as a solution, have done so poorly in convincing others of its benefits,” he admitted. “History has shown that the masses have been quite receptive to the promises of authoritarians which are rarely if ever fulfilled.”
More importantly, he says, “reversing a downward spiral depends on accepting a new approach.”
The solution, he implies in the sober note, are digital tools that can substitute for government services. Perhaps in a strange irony, Paul’s Republican colleagues have embraced the philosophy. “Because technology has the potential of making government more efficient, less expensive to run, and more accountable, it’s not surprising that the Republicans are ahead of the Democrats in the use of technology in governing,” said Andrew Rasiej, publisher of Tech President.
Republican oversight Chairman, Darrell Issa, for instance, has proposed a bill to make federal spending transparent and traceable, through the DATA act. Majority Leader Eric Cantor has experimented with a direct democracy online tool for reducing government programs, YouCut, which allows citizens to vote down programs through SMS voting.
On a more local level, governments have begun cooperating with volunteer civil programmers, or “hacktivists,” to design cheaper and more efficient solutions. In San Francisco, hackers solved the city’s ongoing need for a public transportation software infrastructure.
“The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency has every intention of spending a few years and untold dollars creating its own, more robust version of the tool. But the team hacked together the basic parameters of the SMART Muni app in a 48-hour stretch in late July, fueled by pizza and beer,” wrote the San Francisco Chronicle.
Technology substitution still exists as a relatively fringe idea by the geekier members of government, but is steadily growing support in high places.
Thus, in the-ever optimistic style that is Ron Paul, he concluded, “If you find this to be a worthwhile message, spread it throughout the land.”

“Our country has already been taken over. I want to secede back to the Republic, back to our nation. The new world order has taken over. We’re not fighting just some corrupt politicians and it’s a little political issue. We have serious, hardcore authoritarians, Ron Paul called them yesterday authoritarian psychopaths, in control. We know what tyranny is historically. This is the worst case of it I’ve ever seen. And it’s growing and coming to fruition very, very quickly.” – Alex Jones, “Talk Show Host Calls For Second American Revolution!” November 15, 2012.
“As over a million Americans express their disenfranchisement with the federal government by supporting a secessionist movement that has spread like wildfire, it is time to call for a new declaration of independence and a new commitment to restore the Republic in the face of an enemy that has subverted America from within.” – Paul Joseph Watson, “Ron Paul: The Founders Believed in Secession,” November 15, 2012.
“We are going to force the issue with the globalists, because here’s the key. We’re not seceding from the federal government. We are recognizing and declaring what is self-evident that the federal government has been hijacked by foreign banking cartels.” – Alex Jones, “TRANSCRIPT: Alex Jones – Secede from the New World Order,” November 15, 2012.
Since when did self-determination become a dirty word? Isn’t this the slogan that America fights for abroad? Why, then, does the U.S. government deny this principle at home? Why is the federal government more interested in the self-determination of Iraqis, Afghans, and Syrians than of Americans?
A government that denies its own basic principles and laws does not deserve to be listened to and followed. Secession from such a poisonous government is a moral and spiritual duty.
Alex Jones is on the right side of history by calling for secession from the bankster-hijacked federal government. He is standing up for America and for freedom-loving people worldwide.
The current oligarchical owners of the U.S. government forfeited their claim to rule the American people when they murdered three thousand innocent Americans on September 11, 2001, and then proceeded to destroy the laws and freedoms of the United States by hyping the fake terrorist threat. They seceded from America on that day. The rightful response is to secede from these savages, counterfeiters, aggressors, and liars.
Secession is not an act of treason, it is one of many peaceful political solutions to problems that have been long in the making. The states can rebuilt the American economy by seceding from the corrupt federal reserve system that stole the federal government from the American people in 1913. They should create their own currencies and issue their own credit to their citizens and businesses since the federal reserve and federal government aren’t doing it.
The federal government can honestly fix economic injustices by either abolishing the corrupt federal reserve system or nationalizing it and reclaiming the right to issue money from the transnational private banking cartel. If this does not happen, then the states have a right and a responsibility to their citizens to secede from a collapsing and morally bankrupt banking system.
The Dollar is dead. The era of private central banking is finished. Public banking is the future. Gold and silver is the future. Honest money is the future. If the federal government will not get on the right side of history then the states must.
If the question is asked, why secede? Give this answer: why obey? The hijacked federal government is proposing austerity and war. It is intellectually, morally, financially, spiritually, and politically bankrupt. Here is an excerpt from the Infowars article, “Why The States Must Secede To Save America”:
“While Americans are being told to brace for tax hikes, spending cuts and a myriad of other austerity measures, the Federal Reserve has been sending trillions of dollars to foreign banks.The federal government is supposed to represent the states, but it doesn’t, it represents the interests of the political and banking elite who themselves have no allegiance whatsoever to America.”
The age of treason is not over, but there is a new age of global political awakening in which corrupt political leaders and international financial fraudsters are getting the biggest wake up call in history. Humanity wants to be free. The sick perverts who rule England, America, and other nations must step down from office and face the legal consequences of their actions.
The transition to a new age of freedom won’t be easy. But liberty must be fought for in every generation. In our time, the greatest freedom to be won is the freedom of the mind. Totalitarian ideologies such as political Islamism, Zionism, and Counter-Terrorism have deprived nations in the East and the West of this sacred freedom which is the source of all others.
As socially conscious and politically aware global citizens, it is our duty to destroy these totalitarian ideologies and liberate the individual from the prison of systematic government brainwashing. Our demand is clear: The brainwashing of all humans by all governments must end.
We are not mental subjects of governments, but creative children of God, and God has no official state ideology. Governments of the world must recognize this divine demand and stop using the media as a tool to instill propaganda into the minds of their citizens. That is the way of the past. It is a dead way. We live in a different time now, a time of spiritual evolution.
(NaturalNews) The reaction to my recent article on why Texas is uniquely positioned to secede from the union and run itself as an independent nation state reveals that very few people on the internet have any real knowledge of history. (Gee, is anyone surprised that people on Facebook have no clue what they’re talking about?)
For the purpose of educating those who simply don’t know these facts, I’m publishing selections from the Texas state constitution that make it perfectly clear: Texas voluntarily joined the union but did not surrender power to the union. It reserves the eternal right to run its own affairs.
From the Texas Constitution, article 1, section 1:
“Texas is a free and independent State, subject only to the Constitution of the United States…”
As TexasSecede.com points out: Note that it does not state “…subject to the President of the United States…” or “…subject to the Congress of the United States…” or “…subject to the collective will of one or more of the other States…”
This means Texas has loyalty only to the Constitution, and when the federal government abandons the Constitution, Texas has no obligation, moral or legal, to recognize any government that has betrayed the law of the land (the Constitution and its Bill of Rights).
Also from the Texas Constitution:
All political power is inherent in the people … they have at all times the inalienable right to alter their government in such manner as they might think proper.
From the Texas Declaration of Independence:
When a government has ceased to protect the lives, liberty and property of the people, from whom its legitimate powers are derived…[it is] the inherent and inalienable right of the people to… abolish such government, and create another in its stead…
From the U.S. Declaration of Independence:
….governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed…
…whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends [i.e., protecting life, liberty, and property], it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government…
…when a long train of abuses and usurpations… evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.

Congressman Ron Paul reacted to the secessionist movement sweeping America today by reminding people that the United States seceded from the British empire, while slamming those who suggested their fellow Americans should be deported merely for talking about the idea.

Secession: Exploding Movement, Tempest In a Teapot … Or Something Else?
A lot of attention is being given to the fact that residents in all 50 states have filed petitions to secede from the United States.
Daily Caller reports:
By 6:00 a.m. EST Wednesday, more than 675,000 digital signatures appeared on 69 separate secession petitions covering all 50 states, according to a Daily Caller analysis of requests lodged with the White House’s “We the People” online petition system.
Petitions from Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, North Carolina, Tennessee and Texas residents have accrued at least 25,000 signatures, the number the Obama administration says it will reward with a staff review of online proposals. (RELATED: Will Texas secede? Petition triggers White House review)
The Texas petition leads all others by a wide margin.
States whose active petitions have not yet reached the 25,000 signature threshold include Alaska, Arkansas, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming.
Fourteen states are represented by at least two competing petitions. The extra efforts from two states — Missouri and South Carolina — would add enough petitions to warrant reviews by the Obama administration if they were combined into petitions launched earlier.
As Google notes, web searches for the term “secession” are being run in a number of states:
Conservatives – such as Judge Napolitano and Ron Paul – say that the states have the right to secede. And Texas governor Rick Perry said that Texas has a right to secede (although he counsels against it at the current time).
On the other hand, most liberals say that the Civil War ended the state’s right to secede. Huffington Post is covering the wave of secession petitions … to ridicule them.
Daily Kos suggests that “secessionists can secede by renouncing their citizenship“.
As the Daily Caller notes, liberals have launched their own counter-petitions:
In a … nose-thumbing aimed at Texas’ conservative majority, progressives from the liberal state capital of Austin responded Monday with a petition to secede from their state if Texas as a whole should decide to leave the Union.
Late Tuesday a second group of Texans, this one from Houston, lodged their own White House petition. Secession-minded Texans, they wrote, “are mentally deficient and [we] do not want them representing us. We would like more education in our state to eradicate their disease.”
A group from El Paso, too, wants no part of an independent Texas. “Allow the city of El Paso to secede from the state of Texas,” their petition reads. “El Paso is tired of being a second class city within Texas.”
Yahoo News argues that the petitions are meaningless:
The petitions are little more than symbolic—and nothing new. Similar petitions were filed after the 2004 and 2008 elections.
Libertarian website Lew Rockwell argues in a piece by Ryan McMaken that nothing will come of the current secession attempts, but that the principle is important:
I have no illusions about this latest secession petition phenomenon. Nothing will directly come of this, and the people who are behind it are mostly people who would be singing “God Bless America” at the tops of their lungs had Mitt Romney been elected. On the other hand, it sure has a lot of people talking about secession, which shows that the idea of it remains an important part of the American political consciousness.
The Declaration makes a simple argument:
- Humans have rights from the Creator.
- Governments exist to secure those rights (a debatable assertion but we’ll roll with it).
- When the government fails to secure those rights, we can ditch it and start our own government.
That’s pretty much all it says. If you thought that was true in 1776, when tax rates were 1% and there was no such thing as a the EPA or the FBI or the IRS, why is it not true now? Because we’re so much more free now? And, no, the Declaration did not say that the government is free to violate rights as long as people get to vote on it.
The Declaration establishes that there’s no such thing as treason, and a free government requires the assumption of just secession. Lysander Spooner explains[:]
Thus the whole Revolution [of 1775–1783] turned upon, asserted, and, in theory, established, the right of each and every man, at his discretion, to release himself from the support of the government under which he had lived. And this principle was asserted, not as a right peculiar to themselves, or to that time, or as applicable only to the government then existing; but as a universal right of all men, at all times, and under all circumstances.
Ron Paul says that states have the right so secede … and predicts they will do so when the dollar collapses:
My take has been the same for many years … I believe that America – like the Soviet Union – may break up when corruption and tyranny lead to the break down of basic systems.

With the secession petition movement at petitions.whitehouse.gov gaining more ground everyday, there will likely be a new Federal Government to represent the states, a new continental Congress, and a new Constitution The only problem with the old Constitution is that it is missing some more Amendments to deal with the new modern form of tyranny that wasn’t back during the time of Great Britain so the founding fathers didn’t protect the public against the new modern 1913-2012 tyrannies that every American faces now with the Federal Government.
So here are some Constitutional Amendments that the General public can debate about that I put in this article. You can agree or disagree with any of these in the comment board below on FederalJack or wherever the article has been syndicated to. You can even propose it at the new Constitutional convention after the state secession has been completed and a new national capitol has been designated.
It is not treason to debate about reforming the broken Federal Government that only represents the Corporate New World Order. It is only treason to betray the US and go to war with it or even adhering to it’s enemies. If the public of the US feels that the Federal Government has failed in it’s duties and is trying to destroy the very country it’s founded upon, then the public has a right to peacefully organize and demand a new government or in other words a REFORM of the Federal Government whether the tyrants rant about it or not. The Declaration of Independence talked about government taking away our liberties
This article will put what new Amendments need to be added to the future Constitution and Bill of Rights. These are real Amendments drafted by somebody I know whom has been studying law and has ran an alternative media website for years alongside FederalJack and Infowars but had to shut down his website due to political corruption falling upon him. That is why these Constitutional Amendments need heavy debate and consideration.
Congress and the Senate shall have a one term limit to serve office. A term limit is necessary for the security and representation of the people. Campaigning beyond just one term in some cases have led to bullying and police harassing anyone whom criticizes their representative which in most cases leads to lack of representation in government thus the confidence in government goes low while rebelling against authority goes up. A Senator shall have only a one six-year term and a Representative shall only have four years within the Congress.
Updated 11:26PM – Smaller Districts and Real Representation:
In order to maintain and keep real representation all districts must remain small. Each Representative district must only encompass 30,000 people. In other words each representative will represent only roughly 30,000 people per district to keep the districts small. In order to comply with this Amendment more representatives must be seated in the House of Representatives in order to make representation more easy and not a hassle with the increase in the human population. Also the amount of Senators must be increased to three per state to increase the amount of Senators to 150 to represent the 50 states and yet still be lower then the House of Representative as with the traditional form of this government.
In the event where a Representative and Senator has not preformed satisfactory in their duties, in the event where the Constituents feel a lack of representation, that the people of their Congressional Districts shall have the inalienable right to request a emergency or recall elections at any time that certain qualifications are met. Those qualifications in this amendment are met when only a Constituent of their district puts in a request for a recall petition, that the petition gathers at least 750 valid signatures of only Constituents residing within the same district as where the petition was requested, and that the Constituent be a citizen of the United States. The validity of the petition signatures will be determined by the elections public servants. That signature count shall not take more then two weeks and shall be speedy. That when the petition has received the total or more then the required signature count, that within two weeks shall voting polls be opened up within the county polling places within the district, that if more votes goes to the opponent of the sitting Representative or Senator that the opponent shall immediately hold that district’s office without delay, that the Representative or Senator that was elected through recall elections serve that district for the remaining of the term. If the recalled politician is reelected then that representative or Senator shall stay for the remainder of his/her term.
The US President can also be recalled but under different standards. Americans have a right and duty to recall elections especially with election fraud being evident. The standards are as follows:
1. The person requesting a recall of Presidential elections must request a petition form for this very process as what is determined by law.
2. The person requesting the petition and the petition signers must all be verified US Citizens and has lived in the United States for at least 2 years minimum.
3. The petitioner must find a citizen in each state to be a liaison for managing and being responsible for gathering petition signatures within his/her respected state.
4. The state Board of Elections will be responsible for verifying the petition signatures for authenticity and accuracy.
5. One-fourth of each states population is the amount of signatures needed for a recall election for the office of US President.
6. Petition signatures must be counted and verified within in one month or earlier.
7. Once signatures have been verified then all political parties shall be notified and be given 1 extra month to follow the rules for getting on the Presidential ballot. Ballot rules shall be different in recall elections then with the November general elections as the amount of time needed to get on the state ballots would be difficult within one month but the time limits are necessary to prevent the elections boards from stalling the petitions to keep the recalled President in office even when the procedures were done properly.
Penalty for passage of laws in violation of the Constitution:
Congress shall work within the framework of this Constitution. This Amendment however does not apply to a Constitutional convention where any Amendment can be changed through it’s usual process. The penalty for Congress, the Executive Branch, or even the Judicial Branch passing a law, setting new precedent for case law, or even creating an executive order that violates the Constitution is a lighter form of High Treason. The penalty will be carried out by forced recall elections with no right to reelection. That politician will be fired of the duty and job immediately.
Congress shall not pass any law or treaty that shall regulate, prohibit, penalize, and even imprison somebody for what the individual and their medical professional decides is best for their health, whether drugs or herbs, whether using machines or even old fashion equipment. The right of individual health shall remain within the individual. The government is prohibited from passing a law or even a mandate to force a individual to take medications, go through surgeries, or even insurance. Each person has a right to their health choices in a free society, in a liberty based government.
The persons right to grow their own food within their own property is a right of the people. No law shall be passed that will penalize or completely ban gardens and food production facilities on residential or even commercial land.
State Nullification of Federal Law:
If a single state’s citizens disagree with a Federal Law then their legislatures are permitted within this Constitution to nullify a Federal law. The legislature shall pass a resolution into state law that declares a federal law in it’s entirety or a portion of it to be nullified by the state. Federal Government is about representing the states yet regulating interstate commerce but was not created to regulate the states since each state already has a legislature, and local and county laws to protect the rights of the people. However no state law nor it’s Constitution shall overwrite the US Constitution.
Presidential Term Limits:
The President and Vice President of the United States shall only have a one term limit which is four years. The president will worry more about doing the job instead of worrying over the election results and trying to win for campaigns.
If a jury believes that enforcement of a particular law is an injustice within the court against the individual, that the jury have the right to overturn the case by nullifying the charges. Jury Nullification is another watchdog within the judicial community to ensure that all Federal Courts do the right thing and never imprison somebody over a law meant for a purpose different then what the authorities are enforcing the law for. The defendant in court has the right to explain to the jury and give documentation as to why a request has been made for jury nullification. Jury nullification however does not nullify a law entirely but gives somebody a warning then a second chance for a crime. Jury Nullification can also be used to overturn a case where the person is punished in court for simple civil disobedience or even for unknowingly violating a law as no human being can remember every law including lawyers since there are different lawyers for different types and subjects of law. Laws that are passed with the purest intentions are not always used for the right reasons so jury nullification is the best remedy for these circumstances. However the Jury has the power to require certain conditions upon nullifying the charges against the defendant, when the conditions are met the charges are dropped and can never be pursued again for that particular case. When the conditions are not met another trial can begin for sentencing the individual for the crime committed. Conditioned Jury Nullification is the best alternative to a executive pardon since only the sentence under a pardon can be dropped and criminal record is created and made public and usually difficult to expunge especially when charged with certain type crimes even expungement and pardons may not legally work out. Also Jury Nullification nullifies any need for police to create a criminal record for the crimes that the Jury forgiven the defendant for. Example of usage of this system is that somebody breaks a law due to a unhealthy addiction or psychological problem. The court usually imprisons the person never giving that person any help for the mental illnesses that may have contributed to the crime being committed. The Jury can condition somebody to seek psychological help with a review by the court then when the court order has been fulfilled then the court case is dropped and no criminal records shall be filed on the individual or in some cases can be destroyed as what is prescribed by law to meet with this amendment.
Fair Use Doctrine:
It is not a criminal act nor a civil violation to use copyrighted material in a way that is compliant with the Fair Use Doctrine. When the rights under Fair Use Doctrine is violated by the copyright holder or holders then they shall be held liable for court fees, sanctions, emotional damages, and for any loss of employment as a result of the lawsuit or criminal case over a Fair Use protected activities.
(Fair Use Doctrine should be copied here, right from the Fair Use doctrine already under law but is harder to eliminate using treaties and contradictory laws)
Copyright is important to protect peoples works and allows credit to be given to the true inventors of art and other creative works. However copyright must never be used to penalize the news media, schools and educational institutions including universities, satirical and parody pieces, criticizing somebody using their work as a source to criticize, documentary filmmakers, and even protesters using copyrighted images or symbols for social justice. Copyright was never meant to target bloggers as they are also the new opinion editorials and news media. Courts shall never rule that bloggers are not protected Free Speech and Freedom of Press. Penalizing bloggers will eventually be used to penalize the press for copyright infringement since many news media outlets reporters now have blogs on their main news organization websites.
Anybody whom is mistreated by a public servant or peace officer, with no reasonable justification for the forceful actions that the officer takes, shall be liable for medical damages, and emotional abuse damages depending on if the officers actions had actually caused emotional and psychological harm. The judicial branch will prescribe under case law for what constitutes emotional abuses by any peace officers actions.
Limitations in Executive Orders:
The President shall only use Executive Orders out of what is prescribed by law, what is authorized under the Constitution, and what is acceptable by the court. A president cannot sign executive orders as a way to work around Congress or even the Judicial Branch. Any such action will be deemed as a misdemeanor and low level High Treason crime and the President will have to leave office and a recall election shall be held throughout all 50 states to pick the next President for the remainder of the term. The President does not have the power to write laws nor make mandates that the people have to obey except what has been prescribed by Congress, the Constitution, and by law.
Going to War against the countries own people:
It shall be unlawful for the President and even the Congress to engage in a offensive war against the countries own citizens during times of peace. Any American that peacefully assembles, any law abiding citizen, any citizen that lawfully has an opinion or even works politically against the government in a non treasonous way shall not be subject to a war zone. In the event the President goes to war against his own people, the president must be arrested for war crimes. When the Congress turns on their Constituents by creating a war bill to suppress the American people, such action will be viewed as a war crime and any Representative and Senator that voted to kill their Constituents using a war bill shall be executed by death penalty for committing a war crime or being an accessory for a war criminal.
So there you have it to solve all of Americans problems with the police and with the law I created all these Amendments now go ahead and start debating about which Amendments you believe should be added into the next American Constitution after the secession movement and a new Federal Government is made with even more checks and balances to ensure it doesn’t become corrupt again like it was last time.
Ron Paul, the bombastic Republican congressman from Texas, whose libertarian leanings nearly resulted in a revolt in the party by his presidential campaign supporters, gave his farewell address to Congress on Wednesday.
Paul declined to run for his congressional seat this year, instead focusing on his ultimately-failed run for the Republican nomination for president.
Paul lost to the eventual nominee, Mitt Romney, and he rejected calls to run as a third-party candidate.
He is the main opposition voice within the party, tirelessly decrying government spending, business regulation, financial consolidation and aggressive foreign policy.
These views have made him a darling of the Tea Party, as well as independent libertarians and many dovish Democrats, who are unhappy with the Obama administration’s half-hearted attempts to reign in the banks and financiers responsible for the stock market crash and resulting recession.
In his address on Wednesday, Paul was bleak in his outlook.
“Our Constitution, which was intended to limit government power and abuse, has failed,” he said.
“The Founders warned that a free society depends on a virtuous and moral people. The current crisis reflects that their concerns were justified.”
That crisis, according to Paul, is overreaching government power.
“If it’s not accepted that big government, fiat money, ignoring liberty, central economic planning, welfarism, and warfarism caused our crisis, we can expect a continuous and dangerous march toward corporatism and even fascism with even more loss of our liberties,” he said.
Paul look back on his own career was also grim.
“In many ways, according to conventional wisdom, my off-and-on career in Congress, from 1976 to 2012, accomplished very little,” he said.
“No named legislation, no named federal buildings or highways, thank goodness. In spite of my efforts, the government has grown exponentially, taxes remain excessive, and the prolific increase of incomprehensible regulations continues. Wars are constant and pursued without congressional declaration.”
Leftists want to characterize secession as a thought crime
Paul Joseph Watson
November 15, 2012
Leftist control freaks are attempting to turn the call for states to secede from the union into a thought crime – by asking the government to have its advocates stripped of their citizenship, deported and exiled.
The viral stampede for secession has now reached a crescendo, with residents of all 50 states filing petitions with the White House calling to withdraw from the United States and form new governments independent of federal control.
The petition for Texas, the largest so far with over 107,000 signatures, states, “The US continues to suffer economic difficulties stemming from the federal government’s neglect to reform domestic and foreign spending. The citizens of the US suffer from blatant abuses of their rights such as the NDAA, the TSA, etc. Given that the state of Texas maintains a balanced budget and is the 15th largest economy in the world, it is practically feasible for Texas to withdraw from the union, and to do so would protect it’s citizens’ standard of living and re-secure their rights and liberties in accordance with the original ideas and beliefs of our founding fathers which are no longer being reflected by the federal government.”
A Daily Caller investigation found that the kind of people filing the petitions are Marine veterans, parents, mechanics and businessmen.
However, secessionist fervor has been met with a statist backlash, with other Americans, primarily supporters of Barack Obama, filing counter-petitions asking the government to, “Strip the Citizenship from Everyone who Signed a Petition to Secede and Exile Them.” A similar petition calls on the Obama administration to, “Deport Everyone That Signed A Petition To Withdraw Their State From The United States Of America.”
The two petitions calling for those who advocate secession to be deported have achieved a combined total of just over 32,000 signatures, whereas the petitions calling for states to secede are now approaching a million signatures.
However, one of the petitions attempting to characterize secessionists as thought criminals is just 4,700 signatures short of a 25,000 target that would automatically mandate a White House review – a figure already surpassed by at least seven of the petitions calling for secession.
Many Obama-supporting Twitter users have also voiced their desire to see secessionists targeted by the government merely for voicing a political grievance. View a selection of Tweets below.
Liberal Obama supporters calling for pro-secessionists to be demonized and punished as thought criminals would do well to remember the aftermath of George W. Bush’s re-election in 2004, when Democrats also called for secession.
Although some have tried to characterize calls for secession as anti-American, people like Congressman Ron Paul have pointed out that it is in fact as American as apple pie.
In a 2009 Campaign for Liberty video, Paul stated, “It’s very American to talk about secession — that’s how we came into being. Thirteen colonies seceded from the British and established a new country, so secession is very much an American principle.”
When asked how he viewed recent calls for secession, Ron Paul spokeswoman Rachel Mills said the Congressman “feels the same now” as he did about it three years ago.
Watch a clip below in which Alex Jones talks about the real history behind secession.
(NaturalNews) Citizens from all 50 U.S. states have now filed petitions with the White House asking for “peaceful secession” from the union. According to Daily Caller, more than 675,000 petition signatures have now been collected.
The Texas petition now has over 100,000 signatures, and more signatures are appearing by the hour.
It raises the practical question: Could Texas survive as a nation state if it secedes from the union?
The short answer is YES.
As you’ll see here, Texas is unquestionably the state best positioned to function as its own nation. Here’s why:
• Texas is a fiercely independent culture. It has already been its own nation, the Republic of Texas, from 1836 to 1846.
• Texas is the only state with its own independent power grid.
• Texas can grow more than enough food to feed itself (and trade with neighboring states).
• Texas is the energy empire of America, with massive resources of natural gas, petroleum, solar and wind. It contains the largest untapped oil reserves in North America, save for Alaska.
• Texas has physical possession of America’s oil refineries. (Key strategic resource!)
• Texas has abundant technology and telecommunications. It is the “silicon valley” of the South.
• Texas has the basic infrastructure of a space program. The Apollo program, after all, was based out of Houston.
• Texas has a ready labor force.
• Texas has abundant natural resources, including water, soil, sunlight and seeds. There are 15 major rivers that run through Texas.
• Texas has manufacturing know-how and a “can-do” culture of practical people who know how to solve problems.
• Texas has multiple shipping ports and international airports, allowing high-volume international trade with other nations.
• Texas has the capability of defending itself against threat of invasion or military force. Tens of millions of firearms are already owned by well-skilled farmers, ranchers and military veterans. Any attempt to occupy Texas with a military force would be far worse than trying to occupy Afghanistan.
• Texas has a world-class university education system.
• Texas has a history of independence from tyranny. It’s part of the Texas DNA.
• Texas has diverse ecology, with 10 climatic regions, 14 soil regions, and 11 distinct ecological regions.
• Texas is a state with tremendous citizen pride. More than in any other state, Texans identify their state as a source of strength and independence.
• Texas citizens have a sense of ethics and morality that’s simply missing from many other areas (most notably the Northeastern USA). In Texas, people generally know the difference between right and wrong, and they typically seek to do the “right” thing.
• Texas has Ron Paul! (Need we say more?)

It’s been just over a week since President Barack Obama was decisively reelected, and already conservatives are ginning up support for impeaching him.
People in four states — Colorado, New Jersey, Virginia and Washington — have reported strange political robocalls from a birther group called Conservative Majority Fund, saying that they “suspect” Obama may be “guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors,” adding “there may be grounds for impeachment as is laid out in the Constitution.”
The message opens by claiming: “We’ve just learned that Obama’s immediate plans are to close Guantanamo, give full amnesty to illegal aliens and give the United Nations the authority to tax Americans. And this is just in the short term. Our only recourse now is to move forward with the full impeachment of President Obama.”
It goes on to add that the president “may not even be a U.S. citizen because nobody, I mean no one, has seen an actual physical copy of his birth certificate. Impeachment is our only option, and Republicans are already considering Obama investigations. As the nation’s most effective conservative group, we are launching the official impeach Obama campaign. So please, press one now to donate to impeach Obama.”

After 23 years in office, Republican Rep. Ron Paul of Texas delivered his final speech to Congress on Wednesday.
The libertarian-leaning congressman has gained an enthusiastic following for his strong views on limited government, Austrian economics and non-interventionist foreign policy. During his final speech, Paul lamented that he had achieved little of what he set out to do in Congress: reign in excessive government and stop unconstitutional wars of aggression.
“I have thought a lot about why those of us who believe in liberty, as a solution, have done so poorly in convincing others of its benefits,” he said on the House floor. “If liberty is what we claim it is — the principle that protects all personal, social and economic decisions necessary for maximum prosperity and the best chance for peace — it should be an easy sell. Yet, history has shown that the masses have been quite receptive to the promises of authoritarians which are rarely if ever fulfilled.”
Paul also predictably attacked the “redistribution of wealth by government” and Keynesian economics, along with the Federal Reserve. He alleged that American wealth “today depends on debt.”
While much of Paul’s speech was devoted to economic issues, he also warned of the “continuous attack on our civil liberties” and the aggressive use of military power by the United States.
The Texas congressman said “promoting a virtuous society” was key to reforming the government. He noted that during the Republican presidential primary race, he was booed for saying the United States should not “do to other nations what we don’t want them to do to us.”
“A society that boos or ridicules the Golden Rule is not a moral society,” Paul remarked. “All great religions endorse the Golden Rule. The same moral standards that individuals are required to follow should apply to all government officials. They cannot be exempt.”
