Resolution of Support
Whereas the Southern National Congress exists to encourage and lead the Southern People to a separate and independent national existence from the United States of America; and
Whereas the Southern National Congress also supports similar efforts by any historic, organic peoples anywhere in the world, in the hope of spreading liberty and self-government to all men and nations;
Be it resolved by the delegates of the Southern States in Congress assembled that we applaud and celebrate the vote of the people of Catalonia to separate themselves from the Spanish realm; and
We wish them Godspeed, and hope to one day join them as a member of the Community of nations.
Adopted 14 November 2015 at the Eighth Annual Session of the Southern National Congress at Dickson, Tennessee and ordered to be transmitted to the Executives and Legislators of Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia.
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.
What is liberty without wisdom and without virtue?
