Resolution of Support

Catalonia

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.

 

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?
