Report on SNC-7 - Moving On

The Southern National Congress, Session Seven was held 1 November 2014 at the General Morgan Inn in Greeneville, Tennessee. Eight of our fourteen States were represented with delegates (two States have no active delegation).

Officers were elected for the next two-year term: David O Jones (TN) as Chairman, Mark Thomey (AL) as Vice-Chairman, Sam Nelson (AL) as Treasurer, Dr. Gerald Burnett (VA) as Finance Chairman and Assistant Treasurer, Bob Hines (SC) as Parliamentarian, and Robert Mills (MO) as Chaplain.

The major point of business was that declining attendance at the sessions has been attributed to a number of delegates believing that we have not been accomplishing anything of significance. We have suffered under a lack of direction and the absence of a goal. The delegates at SNC-7 settled that.

The Southern National Congress has set the goal of 1 November 2034 by which every State of the SNC will have declared their independence from the Empire. We also established specific activity and goals for each year until independence is achieved.  We will not publish those specifics, but will communicate them privately to every delegate who wishes to be active in achieving independence for their State.

As your Chairman stated last year, “Let the dogs bark, the caravan is moving on!”

As a side note: A twenty year goal seems to be distant and some of us will not live to see it, but the defenders of the Alamo did not see Texan independence either and none of us would diminish their contribution and sacrifice for Texas. (The Texas delegation declared that Texas would lead the way this time.)

Contact your State Chairman or the SNC Chairman David Jones for the opportunity to get active in the cause.

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

 

What is liberty without wisdom and without virtue?
