Here is another shinning example of the failure in both our schools and universities as well as that which passes for “news media” in this nation:
Of course, this is mostly a symbolic gesture. The odds of the American government granting any state permission to go its own way are on par with winning the lottery while getting hit by a meteor while seeing Bigfoot while finding gluten-free pizza that tastes like the real thing.
Rather than address the reason why some citizens may feel the drastic measure of secession is actually warranted, the author of this piece chooses to insert his editorial commentary by mockingly berating the people signing these petitions while scoffing at the very idea. What’s more, Krumboltz betrays hi total ignorance as to who controls who: the States or the Federal government. The States do not need the federal governments “permission” to secede; that right is inherent in the FACT that the several States are recognized — BY THE CONSTITUTION — as sovereign.
The people in our media and on the American Left would do well to understand that this is NOT about “hate,” “racism,” “sour grapes” or any of the other convenient excuses they are feeding to themselves. It is about opposition to the growing tyranny coming from their side of the political spectrum.
Incidentally, for those who may be interested: Yesterday, my post on Florida seceding from the union drew 434 unique views. Today, it has drawn more than 640. That’s more than the Rule 5 posts — combined. I have never seen that on the RNL. Usually, a post never does as well as the first day it is posted. The only exception seems to be Augger’s post on male vs female circumcision. So, in spite of what our resident Leftists would like to believe, it would appear that America does not view the issue of secession is as a “trivial” a matter after all.
Make that 1,074 unique views: less than 100 fewer than the home page views. This is the first time I have ever seen a non-Rule 5 post generate this sort of interest on the RNL — ever! I would say this is a strong indicator as to the mood of the nation — and it aint good.
