Secession And The Power of the Sword 2015
(Editor’s Note: I wrote this article in February 2010 for the first time. It was WAY ahead of its time then. But we are now five years down the road toward the collapse of the Washington power structure and rogue government. So this updated article is a bit of new perspective along with some of the original article.)
Few people, even patriots…truly understand how close America is to an economic collapse. And when it comes…not IF it comes…every person will be affected in some way. A tiny minority will be prepared, and everyone else will suffer…many will die and die ugly.
I see my friends and fellow travelers in the Liberty movements and the Secession movements vigorously promoting State Secession. But there seems to be an elephant in the room at every gathering…an elephant that few are willing to acknowledge or talk about.
The elephant in the room is military preparedness for a state on the brink of secession, or a newly seceded state/nation. I have heard some of the leaders in state nationalist movements shy away from talking about militias and military preparedness. I have heard speeches where those leaders distance themselves from any notion that the secessionists might have to take up arms and fight. And I certainly understand the sense of self-preservation that motivates those leaders. If the DC regime labels you a “domestic terrorist” or an “enemy of the state,” your life can be drastically altered or ended. And when the label “terrorist” has no real meaning, and can mean anything that DC wants it to mean, it’s best to stay off their drone radar screens.
But at some point, the militia MUST be discussed. And at some point, the militia MUST be created and military preparedness MUST be addressed.
My friends at the website Western Rifle Shooters Association talk about preparedness all the time. But is their talk getting down to the real nitty gritty? I believe it is. I believe that the leaders there are quietly preparing the militia leaders that will be needed when the shyt hits the fan.
There is an absolute requirement of a seceding state to wield the Power of the Sword.
The Power of the Sword I speak of here is the State Militia. A seceding state MUST FIRST establish its own military, and the best form of a military for a new nation is a citizen militia.¹
