Well, of course, you talk all the right talk, but do you do anything?
As Chairman of the Southern National Congress, I have people say this to me more often than I would like. But then in talking with the leadership of other organizations, they hear the same comment.
"Do you do anything?" is a legitimate question. With limited resources and time, none of us want to commit either to a group or an organization which is simply looking good while marking time.
The SNC is composed entirely of volunteers men and women who have lives filled with family, church, work and other priorities. Sometimes they don't get to do everything they wish to do, after all, they also need to sleep a few hours each day. There are times when weeks go by and they are only able to do a little something.
"Do you do anything?" is a question we should ask ourselves as we look in the mirror.
Years ago I heard the statementâ€¦ If it is to be, it's up to me. So I do as much as I can and have no regrets about not doing what I can't.
The Southern National Congress fulfills a unique position in the Southern Independence movement. We are positioning ourselves to help our individual State legislators develop an understanding of liberty and independence apart from the Columbian Empire (that one located in the District of Columbia). This can sometimes be a mind-numbing experience.
"Do you do anything?" The answer is "yes." We continue to develop alternative methods of communicating our message.
Take notice. We do not depend on either national or local media to help us. Most reporters follow standards of newsworthiness and objectivity which do not match our own. As a result, for the SNC to rely on media promotion would be risky. You will probably not hear of us there.
Our experience has been that the SNC's message is filtered through journalistic lenses which do not represent our actual view of the issuesâ€¦or even what the real issues are.
Every like-minded Southerner can become a part of the activities of the SNC-either by becoming a delegate or by involving themselves in activities in their own State. It's not too late to attend SNC-9 in Chattanooga this weekend.
"Do you do anything?" Let me turn the question around. Do you? Do you contribute to the SNC? Do you participate on any level? Do you?

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?
