Another Look At Secession!
Caution- Rant follows!:
Most would agree, this country is more politically divided than it has been in a long, long time... maybe even since the Civil War era.
I certainly feel it, and I'm not comfortable with it.
As a Conservative, I can no longer watch the news on ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, or either of the CNN channels. Deceptions or outright lies destroyed any credibility they once had. I continually gag when I listen to anything on National Public Radio. (I listened to and contributed to them for years... no more!)
I can no longer read the New York Times, Time, or Newsweek...
what I read or hear about the war in Iraq at any of those sources contradicts what my eyewitness- returning from combat friends tell me, or what I can read online from Independent News sources and bloggers who don't have an "I hate anything Bush/Military" agenda.
July of last year I jokingly wrote this piece about the possibility that more conservative citizens could form a Union with like-minded souls. As time has passed, I have given more serious thought to that idea as I have been hurt and disappointed by Liberal/Socialist friends and relatives. I no longer want to expend energy supporting people who don't share values I feel at my very core!
I admit that I smiled when this article was brought to my attention, (takes a few seconds to load). Obviously others, even folks at the opposite end of the political spectrum, are beginning to feel as I do.
C'mon folks, if Liberals and Conservatives all work together, we actually might be able to pull this off!
I'm terrified of what I see in the upcoming election.
I'm disgusted with illegal immigration, and I'm sick to death of folks that want to call illegal alien criminals "undocumented workers".
I no longer want to "Press One" to continue in English.
I'm tired of looking at the coming train wreck called Medicaid/Medicare/Social Security-
seeing Liberal politicians veto any market-based ideas about making those programs solvent.
I'm incredulous, having to participate in a government forced Ponzi scheme, with no private market-based alternative available.
I'm sick and tired of calling an efficient interrogation procedure torture, when it takes only a few seconds to COMPLETELY RECOVER after being "tortured"!
I'm at my wits end, being told to ride my bicycle everywhere or to use public transportation, while Liberal hypocrites arrive at Gala events in stretched limousines, or build 30,000 square foot homes with money garnered while making a mess of our medical system.
I'm just generally worn out by all the negativity.
And the capper... I know EXACTLY what the definition of "IS" is!
It won't be easy, but if we start the movement now, we might actually be able to get a Presidential Candidate talking about a peaceful division. It won't happen quickly, and we have to be careful in order to avoid the events that happened the last time a division of the country was attempted.
But I want to be surrounded by like-minded individuals...
I want to be surrounded by those that "do".
My heroes don't quit until they accomplish the goals they set out to achieve...
I no longer want to support quitters. They make my heart ache. They sap the lifeblood of the country.
Frequently, comments left here at "Pitchpull" by Liberals/Socialists indicate they'd like to be rid of me as much as I'd like to be rid of them...
Let's get the ball rollin'.
Talk it up. Blog about it. Talk with your elected officials.
It's something about which even Liberals can have a positive attitude!
What's sad about this?
I'm not sure I'm joking any longer...
Democrats have a vision for this country that I don't share.
They, and most of our Mainstream Media have an agenda...
They want George W. Bush... who was elected only because the other Candidate was a traitorous liar... to fail...
They want the country to fail.
Although I'm not sure they'd agree with my "secession" idea, I know I'm not alone in my feelings of discontent:
Go here, or here, and read posts and comments from others who are tired of the "same ole, same ole".
The phrase I used when trying to motivate Big Bubba is still true-
"If ya wanta keep gettin' what you're gettin', keep doin' what you're doin'!".
I want to quit hitting myself in the head with that hammer.
Agree, or disagree?
