Re: “Burn a Confederate Flag Day

Spunkrat, as a libertarian and a Southern secessionist I have no problem with aligning with the Left on the issues you name. In fact, I have far more in common with a true liberal in the old sense of the word than a Neo-conservative. For instance, I am very anti-war and against corporate welfare and other offenses against liberty. Of course, few on the Left today are very principled in their stances, just as few on the Right are principled. The Leftists who were all upset about "Bush's war" now support Obama even though he has escalated those wars and spread them to other regions of the world. These people rightly condemned the awful Bush when he and Cheney and their gang of neo-cons had people tortured. Yet people continue to be tortured and where is the Left today on that issue? Only libertarians have have remained true in criticising both the Left and the Right for their embrace of statism and totalitarian tactics.

You're right that the South has greatly changed. This does not change the fact that the South is still a very distinct region. It has a unique culture. It has a real history that the US as a whole lacks. It has the history of being an independent country. And many millions of Southerners still want to be free. In fact, I have seen a huge uptick in this desire recently. As the US Empire crumbles (and it is crumbling all around us... and I for one welcome this destruction since I abhore this regime) more and more Southerners (and not just White Southerners either, but people of other races as well) will begin to see independence from the US Empire as a viable option. The USSR died and split up into many republics. The British Empire did the same. And ultimately the US will fall apart too. This can't happen soon enough for me. It's time for independence and liberty.

Re: “Burn a Confederate Flag Day

If Leftists burn Confederate flags this will only serve to show more patriotic folks who the Left really hates. And for all their talk about the Right's "hate speech", it is the Left that truly is the most hateful part of the political spectrum. They hate the free market with a passion. They hate free speech (and want to ban certain words or thoughts). They hate White people in general. They hate the South. And they hate traditional Southern culture. Please, go ahead and aliente us a bit more. At this point in the decline of this awful Empire I don't think it will take much to bring the whole house of cards down. This Empire, built upon genocide, conquest and exploitation can't last very long. Every empire in history falls and the US will be no different. Everyone is upset with the Feds. The economy is rotten and many people are barely getting by. The Empire is bombing innocent people on the other side of the globe every day, creating lots of new enemies every day. Our money is being made worthless by the Federal Reserve. I do think the whole thing will come down soon. I hope to see it in my life time. Here's to its collapse! Here's to the liberation of the South from this awful Empire!
