As Stanley Kowalski says to Blanche Dubois, “We have had this date from the beginning,” so does the union. Secession was inevitable and would have been exercised more often had the South won the Civil War. This nation is not conducive to a massive federal government, it never has been and never will be. It was not designed thus and cannot sustain itself as thus. That it has maintained this long as it has is a miracle. I think it would have come unwound during the Obama Administration had it not been evident that the media would have propagandized it as a “racist” movement. But, now the media has been exposed as FAKE news organizations and nothing other than propagandists, so that moniker of “racist” has no affect. It has turned the word into a pejorative and nothing less, with no clout, with no deterrence. One merely shrugs at the indictment, knowing it is nothing less than an epithet, akin to being called a Redneck. Who cares?
