While National Citizenship Prohibits Secession, Its Elimination Makes Secession Unnecessary

It’s good news that state rights are finally being discussed — and even secession, though that’s not what we advocate. We have to consider that while some form of “divorce” is perhaps desired, secession may truly be impossible as long as a national citizenship loyalty remains supported by the people. The “political bands” are held firmly in place, and the alleged states remain restricted, by the people, through their own loyalty to a national and quite equalizing protection. Every state is now the same/equal, by way of allegiance to being United States citizens under the Fourteenth Amendment.

When James G. Blaine commented on what the Fourteenth Amendment following Reconstruction was intended to do (and not simply how it has been “interpreted” by courts today, as many seem intent on expressing), he was quite clear that it was intended, from the beginning, to rid us of “that pestilent heresy” of state rights:

“As the vicious theory of State-rights had been constantly at enmity with the true spirit of Nationality, the Organic Law of the Republic should be so amended that no standing-room for the heresy [of State-rights] would be left.” (James Gillespie Blaine, Twenty Years In Congress: from Lincoln to Garfield, Vol 2, Henry Bill Publishing Company, 1884, 30)

Divorce in the way of secession isn’t an option, because the “husband and wife” this article speaks of have agreed openly and publicly, perhaps unknowingly so, that they no longer have the legal right to separate. Not only that, but they are no longer separate entities in a union.

I really wish the author would have went into more detail of why the 14th Amendment was illegal. No one really knows how mafia like the tyrant Lincoln was and the federal government during and after his assassination.

Tom -- self education on both subjects is relatively straight forward:

The definitive research into the history and irregularities (read illegalities) of the ratification process for the 14th Amendment was published by Prof. Joseph B. James in 1984.

“The Ratification of the Fourteenth Amendment”, Mercer University Press, is readily available through online used book sellers (example: AbeBooks.com).

This was a follow-up to “The Framing of the Fourteenth Amendment” published in 1956, wherein Prof. James traces the politics that shaped the language of the legislation.

Regarding Lincoln, a good start is “The Real Lincoln” and “Lincoln Unmasked” by Thomas DiLorenzo. Also good is “Lincoln’s Marxists” by Bensom and Kennedy.

I am aware of what happened, but most do not have a clue.
