The 0-regime has decreed that the States will not be allowed their independence. In the response of the regime to the secession petitions, it was made clear that Independence will not be allowed. The response also made it clear that the regime believes the government to be a democracy. The theme of “Union” is emphasized throughout the response.
The response also distorts history. When it says, “Our founding fathers established the Constitution of the United States “in order to form a more perfect union” through the hard and frustrating but necessary work of self-government.”. The statement makes it sound like the founding fathers formed the Constitution and the Union. WRONG! It was the States that formed the Union. The Sovereign States that formed it. The logic of this regime is following the logic of Lincoln in claiming that the Union formed the States and not vice-versa. What this shows me is that they are either ignorant of history, or deliberately distorting history for his own agenda.
Then there is the lie that “But they did not provide a right to walk away from it.”. Many of the States specified and reserved the right of secession prior to approving the Constitution.
Another lie is “Although the founders established a perpetual union,…”The States used the term ‘perpetual union’ in the Articles of Confederation, NOT the Constitution. It was once again, not the people, but rather the States that formed the Articles of Confederation. Those same states did away with their perpetual union when they formed the new government under the Constitution.
Another lie was the statement, “the Supreme Court confirmed that “[t]he Constitution, in all its provisions, looks to an indestructible Union composed of indestructible States.” If the author had read ALL of Texas v. White, it would have been clear that 1) the case was flawed and 2) that the opinion of the court was that secession was legal, yet only within a narrow window.
This regime lies. It distorts history and events to fit its agenda time and again. They are as slick as the father of lies in how they inject untruths into their response.
This response is essentially the public statement that Independence will not be allowed. It is a necessary step. The attempt at a peaceful secession has fallen upon dead ears. Moses was also denied the freedom of his people on their first attempt as well.
Instead of being fed lies, we need honesty regarding history. When responses are based on lies, and the people are being lied to, the regime is corrupt.
