Historical Vindication of Confederations
Some of the most blessed nations in world history have been confederated republics, such as the USA was conceived to be at her formation and under the Articles of Confederation. One illustrious example is the confederated republic known as the United Provinces of the Netherlands (officially the Republic of the Seven United Netherlands), which lasted from 1581 to 1795. This included the Golden Age of the Netherlands. The republic was a confederation of seven provinces, which had their own governments and were very independent. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dutch_Republic .
Another confederated republic blessed by God was the Old Swiss Confederacy (1300 – 1798). See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Old_Swiss_Confederacy .
God originally designed Old Testament Israel as a Confederation of States. Samuel warned the Israelites about leaving this model:
“And he will take the tenth of your seed, and of your vineyards, and give to his officers, and to his servants… He will take the tenth of your sheep: and ye shall be his servants. And ye shall cry out in that day because of your king which ye shall have chosen you; and the Lord will not hear you in that day.” - I Samuel 8
The Israelites departed from the Confederated structure God had given them. In departing from the Articles of Confederation though, the US Federal Government taxes far more than the 10% described above. The point is that a strong central government inevitably becomes a high tax government, and the nation becomes a low liberty nation. The direction liberal Democrats are driving the nation is but one historical example.
Our goal is to restore the confederated USA of Anglo-American Patriot States, under the Articles of Confederation (America’s original constitution that was unadvisedly and illegally abandoned), with America’s first national flag (the Continental Colors or Grand Union flag) as the symbol of our enterprise:
This confederated USA can have partitioned out of the USA those liberal “blue” areas in a sea of “red” areas that remain part of the USA, such as illustrated here:
Our method is to create a network of Committees of Correspondence of Anglo-American patriots in every State of the USA. Each State Committee will in turn elect a State Council/Assembly, which can then send delegates to a restored Continental Congress under the Articles of Confederation. This is following the playbook of our Anglo-American patriot forefathers who founded the USA.
Time When the State Committees and Continental Congress can Replace the current Federal System of Government: during the likely coming major financial collapse (due to ever increasing debt) and fall of the Federal System. The current Federal System is economically, politically and morally bankrupt, and hence highly unstable. It is amassing more and more debt, making it subject to a coming financial collapse which will make the collapse of 2008 look tame in comparison. It has become more and more of a socialist police state over a “global nation” increasingly difficult to manage, especially in a coming time of financial collapse. Hostile foreign competitors like China and Russia (working with rogue states like North Korea and Iran) are gathering strength and positioning themselves to bring down the US Federal government as well, while the Federal System is over-extended with military outposts around the world. Federal efforts to maintain abortion, mandate “gay marriage”, promote the “LGBT” agenda, curtail gun rights, etc., at a time of rising suicide rates, an opioid crisis, and declining birthrates, are evidence of moral bankruptcy. All combined, there are good reasons to believe the Federal System will fall, with the alternative Confederated System waiting in the wings to replace it. God brings down every Babel that raises its head, as history and scripture testifies.
