65% Favor Across-the-Board Spending Cuts

The problem is not a lack of revenue. The problem is excessive spending.

A recent Rasmussen poll shows that an overwhelming majority of voters want to shrink the central government, including the obscene budget for the standing military. Not that I expect Congress to act on this, but it's heartening to see so much good sense from so many.

I didn't just wake up one morning and decide that the South has to become its own nation. I think there is a tortuous and in many ways a common path that we all have traveled from being a somewhat disgruntled citizen/subject to being a secessionist. It took me years to arrive here.

That 65% is the pool from which future secessionists, Southern and otherwise, will spring when they finally accept the futility of wishing and hoping and waiting for DC to do the proper thing. They won't have as far to travel as we did because they are probably savvy enough in these times to quickly realize they don't have a lot of other options. Hence, our ranks will swell in the coming months.

Now I ask you to consider Catalonia. The secessionists there are NOT a politically homogeneous lot - they are all over the political spectrum. They are a loose coalition of left and right really bound by only one common goal - independence from Spain. We of the South (and the League in particular) have the advantage of them in that we are more define culturally because we are almost universally conservative Christians.

It's called CULTURE and it is the only stuff from which nations are built and can endure.

Well said, Dutchy! A reminder that reality is . . . well, reality, in spite of the abstractions the elites dream up.
