Don't Hold Your Breath

The inauguration of Donald Trump is being hailed as a victory by conservatives but his elevation to Emperor will be a disappointment. Don’t hold your breath for the good times to be rolling in.

Trump in the Oval Office will be a disappointment to conservatives, and to Southerners, and especially to those who desire true liberty. Don’t hold your breath.

On Friday afternoon following Trump’s speech, Paul Craig Roberts posted a blog in which he called the speech “a declaration of war against the entirety of the American Ruling Establishment.”

The problem we all face is the entrenchment of the established power structures which will not take kindly to Mr. Trump’s challenges. The election put a new man in the White House, but the “powerful networks are still in place.”

Roberts’ blog provides a brief list of his enemies:

  • the executives and shareholders of global corporations enriched by the offshored jobs that Trump says he will bring home,
  • the military/security complex which has a 1,000 billion annual budget dependent on “the Russian threat,”
  • the many Europeans who owe their prestige, power, and incomes to the NATO that Trump has called into question,
  • and last but not least, the financial sector with their agent, the Federal Reserve, which can overwhelm Trump and the public with financial crisis.

Trump may have declared war upon these powers-that-be, but no emperor of the Columbian (D.C.) Empire can truly defeat any one of them. Any every one of these has been known to see major roadblocks to their increased power eliminated.

When bullies rule and you have no chance of defeating them, you just get out of their way.

The only legitimate and logical solution to the problems which face us all is to separate from the Empire. Each State must secede. The powers-that-be have their power centralized, but they could not successfully continue to exercise dominion over a multitude of States.

But don’t hold your breath, most Southern politicians still labour under the illusion that they have more freedom within the Empire than without.

Don't hold your breath for any resistance from our "leaders."



Worth Quoting

If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace.  We ask not your counsels nor your arms.  Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you.  May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.

Samuel Adams


What is liberty without wisdom and without virtue?
