The State of
seems to be caught in a tug-of-war between the forces of evil and the forces of good. The mayor of Atlanta, Kasim Reed, was invited to attend the yearly Bilderberg meeting (mentioned in yesterday’s post also), where some of the most powerful Christ- and tradition-hating men and women of the world gather to formulate policy.

The rise of secessionist groups in the United States in the last twenty years is clear proof that the Lincoln myth of perpetual Union and forced association is fading, albeit slowly.
Young people have seen that the emperor has no clothes and are flocking to the principles of independence in growing numbers, both personally and politically. And it is peaceful. There are Michael Murphys in every State. Our job is to cultivate them, to help them understand that the Southern political tradition of Washington, Jefferson, Taylor, Henry, Calhoun, Lee, Davis, and Bledsoe did not die after
. It lives in the spirit of liberty, of independence, and most importantly, of truth. Appomattox
