Why France Lost America, and Washington Will Lose It Too

Washington will lose because aloof arrogance destroys the ability to lead. My kids aren’t in the State Indoctrination Camps, we homeschool. I teach world history to homeschoolers every Friday as part of a local tutorial. I love history and firmly believe that even though history doesn’t repeat, it certainly rhymes. Which brings me to my point. Today I was teaching the future leaders of the free world about The French and Indian War. The book I use as a guide doesn’t give the real reason why Read more […]

Feds Raid Texas Secessionists with Show of Force

Why would Feds raid a group of secessionists that can’t possibly be any danger to anyone? As readers of this blog will already know, some conservatives think there is much to be said for peaceful secession as a force that resists the rise of Big Government. This doesn’t have much of anything to do with any romantic delusions about the Confederate South. It doesn’t even have to be something that happens in the United States. Internationally, secession holds the promise of breaking up Read more […]

New Yorkers Want to Secede from New York

Secession Movements Challenge the New World Order; Scotland Is One of Many

The point is not that all governmental jurisdictions should be split up into smaller ones, necessarily. The point is that we are faced with elites who are hell-bent (literally?) on merging nation-states into larger jurisdictions. Every time we push for splitting off from or dividing a Read more […]

Californians Ready To Leave Hotel California

We all remember the sinister line (among many other sinister lines) in the Eagles’ “Hotel California”: “You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave.” Californians may be ready to leave. I don’t just mean by migrating to sane states. Like some New Yorkers regarding their own state, they are ready to break up California. According to Noah Rothman at Mediaite, The state of California, vast and heavily populated as it is, is unwieldy, ungovernable, financially unsustainable, Read more […]

Conservatives Want To Leave New York State… And Take Some Of New York With Them

Be careful what you wish for. Andrew Cuomo and Bill de Blasio both told conservative they have no place in New York State. As Cuomo put it: Their problem is not me and the Democrats; their problem is themselves. Who are they? Are they these extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay?

Conservatives Read more […]
