In our recent discussions about secession and Balkanization, several people took the position that those who choose to live together in “Blue” states/regions would not necessarily seek the aid of their ideological brethren in China and Russia, building alliances to further crush the new “Red” states/regions.
So, I offer this bit of circumstantial evidence that my position is more likely to evolve.
President Obama delayed the Keystone oil pipeline from Canada.
Canada’s reaction? They immediately turned toward China.
Remember your Churchill, when asked what he though Russia might do: “I cannot forecast to you the action of Russia. It is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma; but perhaps there is a key. That key is Russian national interest.”
Most people will follow their own self-interests. Newsflash: Your Liberty is NOT in the self-interests of Establishment R’s, Liberals, Banksters, Socialists, Communists, and most of your clueless neighbors.
Patriots: If we retreat our enemies will follow, and they will use the resources left behind to crush us.
Secession is suicide for Liberty.
Remember Patton: Make the other poor SOB die for his country. Updated for today: Make the Socialists and Communists leave – not us.
