We are on a collision course between liberty and oppressive government.
Constitutional attorney John W. Whitehead has written, "The state is seeking to make itself the center of all human loyalties, the goal of all human aspirations, the source of all human values, and the final arbiter of all human destiny. In so doing, without using the language of religion, it is claiming to be divine." (Christianity & Civilization #2, http://store.americanvision.org/collections/books)
The rulers within the Empire (formerly called the United States of America) have worked to establish the state as god. They have set themselves to the business of denying the existence of the Eternal Creator by removing public displays of the Nativity of the King of Kings, by outlawing public prayer to the Lord of All, and now by proclaiming marriage to be everything contrary to that established in Scripture.
The Empire will continue to proclaim the motto of "In God we Trust," because it considers itself the god being trusted. "As the state [the Empire] becomes increasingly pagan [proclaiming itself as god], it will continue to exert and to expand its claims to total jurisdiction and power over all areas, including the church." (Whitehead)
Most Americans continue to love "America the Beautiful" and enjoy reciting the "Pledge of Allegiance" because they only see what was not what is. The screws of tyranny have been tightened ever so slowly in order to make any reaction seem radical rather than reasonable.
The Empire has lost its legitimacy because it has lost its ties to absolutes. Legislation, court opinions, and executive decisions are made in light of "what's right now" rather than what is eternally right.
We are on a collision course between Liberty and the Empire.
The delegates to the Southern National Congress understand that the Southern people (all of them) deserve representation on the basis of Truth and Justice. Only with those qualities will regain true Liberty.

You are correct. We are on a collision course. By slowly taking over the education system over the last 100 years or so, Socialists have us raising a generation of youth who know little of why a representative republic is worth preserving, how we went from nothing to the most successful engine of economic growth in history or about the gifts of freedom. They have nothing to compare to since they don't know any differently and haven't studied the past or the great thinkers who lead the founders to put constitutional limits on government. This is true of young citizens all over this country including the South. I fear they won't miss what they have never known. So what's the solution? A collision implies a violent end which often ends in despotism instead of freedom. God fearing people must recapture the education system to have any hope for a future that includes liberty.
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?
