I’ve been giving a great deal of thought to the problems facing our nation. I know I have brought up the subject of secession, and I’ve been serious about it. But I have decided that, given the current divisions among the people of this nation, those who have objected to the idea are actually correct. So, it is with deadly seriousness that I now say I no longer want those who still believe in and support the Constitution to secede from the union. Instead, I wish for those States who wish to remain in the federation handed down to us by our founders to vote on evicting those States that seek to destroy our union.
Yes, that’s right: I want the Red States to vote on forcibly evicting the Blue States from the union. Not only is this the better course for our nation, IT IS CONSTITUTIONAL! Here’s why:
First, the Constitution is NOT our founding document. Those who make this assertion do so only out of ignorance, or for deceptive purposes. Our nation’s founding document is the Declaration of Independence. Until that document was signed, the United States of America did not exist. Once it was signed by all the Colonies, that is when we became a nation, and the Constitution even acknowledges this fact in the preamble:
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union,…
See there? The United States existed before the Constitution, and the Constitution was written and adopted to strengthen our union, not establish it. But then, if we would simply listen to what our founders told us, we’d never have forgotten this:
“Before the formation of this Constitution…[t]his Declaration of Independence was received and ratified by all the States in the Union and has never been disannulled.”
–John Adams, to the Legislature of Massachusetts, Jan. 17, 1794
You see, the Declaration of Independence is the statement of what this country believes: it is the declaration of our national soul. The Constitution is merely one of many possible paths by which we can live the ideals and principles asserted in the Declaration, but it is not the only path because it is not the foundation of our nation.
Now, with that said, I would bring your attention to the opening lines of the Declaration of Independence:
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
So it is that I propose that we draw from the founding spirit of this nation to declare that those who remain in the majority of States which still support and try to adhere to the principles and ideals set forth in our Declaration of Independence (red States) list the primary reasons for which we vote to expel those States which we consider to be in rebellion against these ideals and principles (blue States). The complaint is simple:
The Blue States have rejected Natural Law and stood the natural order of things on its head, declaring right to be wrong and wrong to be right and seeking to enslave the minority for the benefit of the majority. In short, the Blue States have violated social contract which formed this nation, and as violators of a contract, those States still in good standing according to the terms of this contract do hereby expel those States in rebellion from our union.
And this is how we save the union and preserve man’s individual rights and liberty upon the earth.
