Over fifty years ago, that is to say in March of 1965 to be exact, Patrick Moynihan ( then Assistant Secretary of Labor under LBJ and later United States Senator from New York) warned that the breakdown of the black family would make poverty endemic which government programs would not be able to alleviate. He predicted a bleak future for black Americans in which the family unit collapsed with fatherless black youth caught up in a life of crime, drug abuse, and reckless sexual behavior. Liberals went ballistic (actually psychotic) and denounced his report as racist and demeaning to the black community despite the fact that Moynihan was a rabid liberal himself.
Today 71% of African-American children are born to single mothers compared to 53% of Hispanics and 36% of whites. Children with unmarried mothers are five times more likely to live in poverty and 40% less likely to graduate from high school.
What's to be done? Regardless of the cause, whether they are cultural, social, or genetic, it is beyond the powers or finances of the government to alleviate especially with a government running on deficient spending! The future is bleak as both Hispanics and African-Americans have birthrates much higher than white Americans. The failure of the government to fix said problems will be proof positive to them of institutional racism!
More and more as I see the vitriol unleashed against Trump I began to realize that red state secession and the creation of a new and traditional American Republic may be the only solution left. I remember when white conservatives were upset with the election of Obama but we were told that he was our president whether we liked it not, to suck it up, as anything else would border on hatred and racism! And now these same tolerant liberals are screaming NOT MY PRESIDENT as they loot, pillage, burn, and threaten violence and revolution. By doing so they have lost their legitimacy( and that is a good thing!) and have demonstrated to the world just how hypocritical ( and psychotic) they are. The battle is joined! Both visions of America cannot co-exist as they are incompatible. Its time we realized that fact! You haven't seen the fury of red state Americans until the system deposes or assassinates Donald Trump.I truly fear for his life because before he even took office, knowing the system as I do, I predicted he would be impeached or killed.
So which is more important to you freedom or Union? I am reminded of a toast between Andrew Jackson and John C. Calhoun in the White House. President Jackson knew Calhoun believed the idea of secession was a God-given right in as much as America was born of secession from Great Britain. Jackson attempted to way lay him by means of a toast. Consider the following exchange as they raised their glasses;
Andrew Jackson- To the Union! It must be preserved! To which Calhoun responded;
John C. Calhoun- To the Union, next to liberty, most dear!
Let me proclaim to the world that if I have to chose between freedom and my people's preservation or Union with the United States I choose freedom and preservation! No nation was ever intended to be an end in itself but a means to an end!
Make no mistake about it; anything you cannot leave voluntarily is either a toxic relationship, a criminal enterprise, a psychotic cult, or a tyrannical government! Just ask the South in that regard!
