While many are for the absolute independence of the Southern people, we must recognize that independence will only happen State by State one by one.
Talk of Southern independence is all great and wonderful. But speaking in generalities allows most people the excuse for someone else to make it happen.
Following the sorry election of 1860 and Lincoln's ascension to the presidency, it took the action of South Carolina on 20 December to lead the other States in secession. Mississippi, Florida and Alabama followed on 10, 11 & 12 January respectively. Georgia and Louisiana later in the month and Texas on 1 February.
From December 1860 until February 1861, seven southern States by their individual and unilateral action declared their separation from and independence of the federal Union. Only then was a confederacy formed. Until then, each State legislature and their people had to recognize that they might be the sole recipient of any Union retaliation. While they had allies in philosophy, they might end up standing alone in a fight.
The Empire's election for a new FÃ¼hrer this November will be the cause of both elation and furor across the continent. Our State legislatures must prepare themselves mentally, emotionally, and physically for separation from the disaster which the Empire has become.
The separation can only happen State by State one by one.
Are you prepared to help your State make the separation? The Southern National Congress is the only forum available for the activists in the southern States to exchange ideas and tactics. If you do not represent your State, who will?
The ninth session of the SNC meets in November, the weekend immediately following the election. Will your State be sufficiently represented? Are you willing to step up and be counted in favour of ordered Christian liberty in your State? Are you willing to make any sacrifice and recognize your personal responsibility for liberty?
Not only States must act one by one, we as individuals must act one by one.
There is still time to become a delegate, to register your attendance, and reserve your room at the hotel in Chattanooga. The instructions on all this are on our website http://thesnc.org/News/.

Our liberty will only be won one by one.

Seems to me a problem today that wasn't present in 1861 is that the States are wholly dependent upon the Federal pocketbook and seem unwilling to separate themselves from it. Any plan will have to include a clear roadmap for financial independence. That's something worth working on. It's hard to get people excited unless they can see a clear path forward.
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?
