Union Under the Articles of Confederation Fulfills Northern and Western Aspirations As Well
It is not only Southern aspirations that would be fulfilled with a confederated USA under the Articles of Confederation. The Articles were penned under the leadership of John Dickinson of Pennsylvania and Delaware. Many of the leading anti-federalists who opposed abandonment of the Articles and replacement with the federal constitution were Northern: Amos Single, Mercy Otis Warren, George Clinton, Elbridge Gerry and Melancton Smith, just to name a few. They presciently warned of the dangers of the constitutional alteration. The most anti-federalist state in the Union was Rhode Island, which engaged in vigorous protest and was the last State to be roped into it. Anti-federalist sentiments have been present in Northern States ever since then, and especially strong in Western States. Many of these States do not want a strong central government and bureaucracy dictating State policy from afar. Union can be preserved under the Articles without trampling upon States’ Rights.
Time has fully vindicated the warnings of the anti-federalists. Now is the time to return to the Articles of Confederation and the nation it envisions, by God’s grace. The path of our Anglo-American patriot forefathers provides a key to our own course of victory: create a network of Committees of Correspondence of Anglo-American patriots in every State of the USA. Each State Committee would in turn elect a State Council/Assembly, which can then send delegates to a restored Continental Congress under the Articles of Confederation. The time to organize this Confederated System is now. It will provide a clear alternative to the centralized Federal System which currently rules.
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.
The alternative which can replace it then is a 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:
The centralized Federal empire over a “global nation” will fall, and the confederated USA of Anglo-American Patriot States, under the Articles of Confederation, will rise in its stead. This confederated USA will be a nation of and for the Anglo-American patriot people to God’s glory, not a multi-cultural “global nation” empire that only really serves the interests of an elite few. States’ Rights will be the victor, and the long struggle will be vindicated.
