In many respects, our situation today is similar to the situation Anglo-American* patriots faced during the period leading up to and during the American Revolution. The then ruling British government was passing laws and issuing decrees contrary to common Anglo-American interests in favor of other parties in the British Empire, principally British interests. In his pamphlet Common Sense, Thomas Paine expressed it thus: “America is only a secondary object in the system of British politics, England consults the good of this country, no farther than it answers her own purpose. Wherefore, her own interest leads her to suppress the growth of ours in every case which doth not promote her advantage, or in the least interferes with it.” Illustrative of this was the Tea Act of 1773. It was a law passed by Parliament that basically gave the British East India Company a monopoly on tea trade in the Americas.
Perhaps more galling though to Anglo-American patriots were acts of the British government which demonstrated her willingness to help competing interests other than British to the detriment of Anglo-Americans. The British king issued the Royal Proclamation of 1763 which rendered all land grants given by the government to Anglo-Americans who fought for the Crown against France worthless. It also forbade all settlement west of a line drawn along the Appalachian Mountains, which was delineated as an Indian Reserve- a line which had already been crossed by a number of Anglo-Americans. Normally the victor gets the spoils, but in the case of the French and Indian War the Indians were benefited over Anglo-Americans. Eventually too French Quebecers were advantaged over Anglo-Americans in the Quebec Act of 1774. This act of the British Parliament nullified many of the western claims of the Anglo-American colonies by extending the boundaries of the province of Quebec to the Ohio River on the south and to the Mississippi River on the west, while also setting a precedent in America of direct British rule rather than rule by elected legislative assembly. Furthermore, the British government demonstrated indifference with respect to Spanish over Anglo-American interests by letting Louisiana pass to Spanish control at the critical location of the mouth of the Mississippi River. Topping it off, the British government favored African American interests over Anglo-American patriots by issuing declarations which rewarded with emancipation departure from and fighting against Anglo-American patriots. The might of the British empire thus was arrayed behind American Indian, French, Spanish, and African interests against Anglo-American interests.
The British government response to Anglo-American resistance became increasingly hostile, and a tit for tat dynamic took hold. Resentment to British military presence gave way to the Boston Massacre by British soldiers, which followed later by the Boston Tea Party, which gave way to the Intolerable Acts (or Coercive Acts) by the British government, which led to the Battles of Lexington and Concord. The cycle of events led inevitably to rupture in relations and a parting of ways.
The parallels are portentous for Anglo-Americans today. The US federal government seems more interested in providing cheap labor for corporate interests than to care for the plight of common Anglo-American citizens. The US federal government has enacted Affirmative Action Laws which officially discriminate against Anglo-Americans to the advantage of other people groups. The US federal government financially supports programs which demean historic Anglo-America and extol foreigners, including illegal immigrants. The US federal government essentially opens US borders in its crusade to create a “global nation” where historic Anglo-American rights stand little chance of surviving. The US federal government squanders billions in providing medical care and welfare for illegal immigrants and in dubious foreign escapades and territorial help (such as in Puerto Rico). There is also a tit for tat dynamic, with each act leading to more calls by the Democratic Party to do away with the historic Anglo-American rights, such as relating to the bearing of arms and speech, and increasingly headed in the direction of socialism and even communism. California is the leading indicator of the direction for the entire USA.
There are also unmistakable parallels today in the USA to circumstances in the lead up to the dissolution of the Soviet Union. Russians came to view the Soviet Empire as more of a burden on their people than a help to them. Russians knew firsthand the evils associated with its communist policy. The Soviet Union was burdened with excessive debt, domestic strife, and expensive foreign entanglements. The Soviet Union dissolved almost overnight, partitioned into its various constituent ethnic nations, with Russia being its most powerful one. It enjoyed a relatively peaceful partition- one which Anglo-American patriots should vigorously pursue for ourselves.
Finally, there is much to learn from the example of the Zionist movement’s effort to restore the nation of Israel.
Anglo-American patriots should thus consider the lessons learned from the past. We could seek to form modern equivalents to “committees of correspondence” of Anglo-American patriots in the States. Anglo-American patriots in each State could form an elected council, which in turn could then work towards the eventual calling of a continental congress, consisting of delegates chosen from the “committees of correspondence” of the various States. Like the First Continental Congress, it could serve as a voice for Anglo-American interests, calling upon the ruling US federal government and the States to take actions which will address the current problems, according to an Anglo-American patriot agenda. One could hope that such congress would call upon the ruling US federal government and the States to:
- Partition out of the USA those parts of US territory which manifest they are not and do not want to be part of the historic Anglo-American nation, for they instead identify with other peoples and nations (African America, Mexico, Navaho nation, Puerto Rico, etc.). Long term this partition would be in the best interest of all, even as the partition of the Soviet Union and Yugoslavia were.
- Repeal the 1965 Immigration and Nationality Act, which was sold on the lie that it would not significantly alter the demographic composition of the nation
- Adopt jus sanguinis principles of citizenship and stop the “anchor baby” phenomenon
- Repeal Affirmative Action laws which have the effect of discriminating against Anglo-Americans, especially Anglo-American males
- Encourage and incentivize a higher Anglo-American birthrate
- Explicitly restore Anglo-American identity to the USA and repudiate multiculturalism and the “global nation” model
- Declare English as the official language of the nation
- Return to the Articles of Confederation as the constitution of the USA in response to the out of control federal government that has trampled upon the Bill of Rights- a Bill of Rights which was the condition for departing from the Articles in favor of the federal Constitution. The Articles of Confederation got the USA through its most challenging war, provided better hedges against federal over-reach, and acknowledged our dependence on God more clearly. Has history not proved Patrick Henry and the anti-federalists correct?
Just as important, this continental congress could initiate discussions with leaders from the African American community, Hispanic American community, and various Indian tribal communities, regarding lines of partition. As a starting point, those congressional districts represented by members of the Congressional Black Caucus, Congressional Hispanic Caucus, and Indian reservations could be considered for partition out of the USA, along with US territories like Puerto Rico, providing them with their own independent nations where they would be the permanent ruling majority, just as the reformed USA would have Anglo-Americans as its permanent ruling majority.
If more and more Anglo-Americans were to rally to the cause, and a number of State assemblies were to join in, it is possible and desirable that a relatively peaceful partition could occur and the multicultural US federal government would wither on the vine like the old Soviet government did, replaced by a confederated Anglo-America, along with independent homeland nations for other people groups currently composing the US empire. It can and should be conducted via legal channels, respecting the government structures in existence and their laws while they lasted. Such a path of response to our current circumstances would repudiate wrong and senseless acts of violence perpetrated against innocent civilians in the name of American patriotism, and provide a positive sane alternative to restore historic Anglo-America, utilizing lessons from the past.
* The term “Anglo-American”, often shortened to “Anglo”, is generally applied to white Americans who are not of Hispanic heritage and political affiliation and not of French Quebec origin and political affiliation. I have used the term Anglo-American to distinguish this people from other whites on the American continent (like the French of Quebec and the Spanish of Spanish America), as well as Mexican mestizos and non-white American Indians and African Americans, who had competing interests with the Anglo-American people, along with different languages and cultures.
