Should Southern States Abandon the Articles of Confederation?
The words of the Articles of Confederation read thus:
“…the Delegates of the United States of America, in Congress assembled, did, on the 15th day of November, in the Year of Our Lord One thousand Seven Hundred and Seventy seven, and in the Second Year of the Independence of America, agree to certain articles of Confederation and perpetual Union…The said states hereby severally enter into a firm league of friendship with each other, for their common defence, the security of their Liberties, and their mutual and general welfare, binding themselves to assist each other… to make requisitions from each state for its quota, in proportion to the number of white inhabitants in such state…the Articles of this confederation shall be inviolably observed by every state, and the union shall be perpetual; nor shall any alteration at any time hereafter be made in any of them; unless such alteration be agreed to in a congress of the united states, and be afterwards confirmed by the legislatures of every state…it hath pleased the Great Governor of the World to incline the hearts of the legislatures we respectively represent in congress, to approve of, and to authorize us to ratify the said articles of confederation and perpetual union…”
They were unadvisedly and illegally abandoned and replaced by the federal constitution.
Two propositions should be clear:
1. The federal union of Anglo-American patriot States under the federal constitution (which does not protect States’ Rights) is unadvisable, illegal and non-binding.
2. The confederated union of Anglo-American patriot States under the Articles of Confederation (which does protect States’ Rights) is advisable, legal and perpetual.
America’s path of duty and blessing should be clear enough. It is true for the Southern States; it is true for all of the other States. It is the basis for the following effort:
Goal: restore confederated USA of Anglo-American Patriot States, under the Articles of Confederation (America’s first 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:
Method: 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.
Time to Form Committee Network and Restore Continental Congress: Now!!! Please join in this effort by joining your State’s Committee of Correspondence: http://www.puritans.net/articles/State%20Committees%20of%20Correspondence%20by%20State.htm .
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.
