This is a claim made by some folks out there, but the likening doesn’t seem to hold up. What was the Brexit, after all? It was Great Britain withdrawing from the E.U. superstate and reclaiming her self-rule. For people in the [u]nited States to do something comparable, one or more of the States would have to withdraw from the superstate governed by Washington City. Donald Trump says he would like to re-work some trade treaties and stay out of others (which would be good), but this is not quite the same thing as Brexit.
Furthermore, under the Trump economic plan, the same multinational corporations who seek the globalist trade deals he says he opposes (Apple, General Motors, etc.) will still be in control of the American economy (and thus American politics as well, most likely). So not much would change for the average American as far as how much economic independence he or she would have. Far too many would still be wage-slaves of Wal-Mart, Ford Motor Co., Burger King, Chase, and all the rest.
Remember, too, what Americans got under the last President who styled himself an outsider, Ronald Reagan (whom Mr Trump says he admires): higher spending, more debt, more federal employees, not a single department closed, a continuation of the Social Security Ponzi scheme, etc. And this is something both ‘right’ and ‘left’ agree on:
Anyone in the American Union, therefore, who wants a real break with Mammon-loving, Christ-hating, corporate-controlled government, who wants a return to traditional, Church- and family-centered living, will need to consider other options like peaceful secession.
It is obvious that the most important thing in life, the Christian Faith, is under assault by the current powers-that-be in the u. S. If the forefathers of Americans, North and South, were willing to get into a shooting match with the British Empire over tea taxes and jury trials, can we not in the South today, or in Montana or Indiana or other supposedly evangelical Christian strongholds, muster enough courage and energy to pursue peaceful secession for the sake of our salvation and that of the bairn-teams (generations) that will follow us?
Russia has left us with a very good ensample in this regard. They were willing to tolerate the rule of a conquering empire as long as it did not threaten their Orthodox Christianity. But when it did, then they began to seek their freedom:
—Some accused and still accuse St. Alexander Nevsky of “servile submission” to the invaders. They argue he submitted to the pagan Tartars, while St. Dimitry Donskoy, with the blessing of Venerable Sergius of Radonezh initiated the liberation of Russia and defeated the Tartars. What is the difference? Why did the former submit, while the latter began a liberation war?
—We should remember that in the thirteenth century Russia also had much worse enemies—its potential conquerors—than the Mongols who then were tolerant towards Orthodoxy. While Mongols were interested only in the material aspect of occupation, the neighbors from the West thirsted for Russia’s spiritual occupation. By the way, the results of that longing can clearly be seen in today’s Ukraine. This Uniate “Church,” these divisions and schisms, are fruits of that early history, when prince Daniel of Galicia (Danilo Romanovich) requested aid from the heterodox. But he neither received assistance nor saved Russia from pillage. Meanwhile, St. Alexander Nevsky, removing the menace of spiritual occupation from the West, submitted to the Mongols and thus saved hundreds of thousands of human lives and preserved Orthodoxy. As the historian George Vernadsky put it: “These were the two heroic deeds of St. Alexander Nevsky: the exploit of struggle in the West and the exploit of humility in the East.” By the way, thanks to him many invaders subsequently became Christians by divine providence.
However, by the fourteenth century the Horde was no longer tolerant towards the faith of Christ, and indeed Mamai can be characterized as a Muslim extremist. And at that time there could be no more compromises… We are well aware what happened eight years later on the Kosovo Field in Serbia. Serbia, defeated by the Mohammedans, was under their sway which was very destructive for Christianity. Thus, our prince had to take the sword and begin the liberation of Russia which started at Kulikovo Field: . . .

It should be the same with the South today. For she is facing just the same sort of assault on the remnants of Christianity in her land from corporate-run Washington City. Here is just one ensample of what is waiting in the wings regarding public schools:
. . .
The Satanic Temple (TST) is a fairly new organization. Founded in 2013, it fights for political change by pointing out the ostensibly preferential treatment Christianity enjoys in politics. TST has seven chapters in the USA and Europe, and claims a membership of 100,000.
One of the group's objectives is to embed Lucifer in the public school system by establishing afternoon clubs, adoringly dubbed “After School Satan”, which is TST’s response to a Supreme Court ruling allowing evangelical programs to operate in schools.
Currently nine clubs are listed under the program, including in Los Angeles, Salt Lake City and Washington DC. The clubs will focus on “rationalism, free inquiry … and fun”, according to a promotional video.
TST itself emphasizes that it seeks to implement “After School Satan” in locations where active Christian children’s clubs operate.
TST said it is “not interested in operating After School Satan clubs in school districts that are not already hosting the Good News Club.”
The Temple is attempting to present a challenge to the Good News Club, an interdenominational Christian program for five to twelve-year-olds, operating in over 3,500 public schools across the country.

States that secede would not have to go it alone. There are friendly confederations out there that they could join, like the BRICS block of nations. But first they need to get over their Stockholm syndrome with Washington City, stop treating the u. S. Constitution like a magic charm, and start organizing for a real Brexit-type referendum.
Holy Ælfred the Great, King of England, South Patron, pray for us sinners at the South!
Anathema to the Union!
