Ten Reasons for Secession

By J. Michael Hill

A 2009 Zogby poll revealed that about one out of every five Americans believe that States have a right to peaceably secede from the United States and become independent republics. A similar percentage says that they would support a secession movement in their own State.

The greatest support for secession came from the South, where almost 26% of those polled supported a peaceful break with Washington, DC.

What is behind this increasing support for secession and independence? Perhaps the answer is this: hard reality has finally trumped the myth of a sacred, indivisible union. In other words, many citizens are beginning to see the hand writing on the wall, and the message is alarming.

There are at least ten good reasons for Southern secession in early 21st-century America:

1.  The U. S. government is an organized criminal enterprise; secession is the only way to return to legitimate government.

2.  The U. S. economy is failing; secession makes economic sense.

3.  The South’s unique history and culture is worth protecting.

4.  The criminal nature of the bank bailouts and the Fed.

5.  A dysfunctional national electoral system, secession may be the only way to restore integrity to elections.

6.  Third World immigration into the South, secession removes the federal government's interference and lack of performance.

7.  Organic community vs. the globalism of the elites.

8.  The implementation of an American police/surveillance state.

9.  The Christian South v. secular America, secession provides the opportunity to return to Our Founding Principles.

10.  Because we think we can rule ourselves better than we are being ruled by DC, secession is a path to American Liberty.

Can you think of some other reasons for secession?

  1. The Washington Pay-Off
    Secession will become irrelevant as the Washington Cesspool turns paper money into Weimar confetti. There won't be anything to secede from.

  2. We will all be living like Mad Max/Zombieland soon enough... I can't wait. Its gonna be fun
