Third Southern National Congress

Features High-Profile Event

November 15, 2010: Dickson, TN - Chairman Thomas Moore of Virginia presided over the Third Southern National Congress (SNC) on November 12-14 at historic Montgomery Bell State Park near Dickson, Tennessee, thirty miles west of Nashville.  Delegates from the fourteen Southern States considered several resolutions which speak for vital Southern interests.

The Third Congress also hosted a hig-profile banquet featuring as speaker, Larry Pratt, the Executive Director of Gun Owners of America.  While reviewing recent Congressional election results, he focused on the importance of gun related issues to our Southern liberty.  Pratt's presence  was an indication of the rising influence the SNC is exerting on the state and federal level.

The significant document produced by the Third Congress was "A Resolution Regarding Moral Obligation of Obedience, Deference, or Loyalty." Attention was also given to housekeeping issues and adjustments in procedure so that the Southern National Congress might be a more effective agent in reclaiming the great Southern principles of individual liberty and a limiting the central government to its enumerated powers.

Worth Quoting

If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace.  We ask not your counsels nor your arms.  Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you.  May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.

Samuel Adams
