“To submit to the encroachments of this vulgar crew of plunderers and fanatics, is a degradation no other free people than the people of the South ever endured; but to submit to their rule will be the desperation of a weak and conquered race – conquered without a fight.”
– Robert Barnwell Rhett
Just one word: inspiring.
Believe me, I am doing everything in my power to bring about the day when we can hold a similar massive demonstration of our national will here in Dixie. Great movements in history have small beginnings.
It’s easy to jump on the bandwagon of a fully mature political movement. It’s much harder to build one from the ground up when it is small. If the UK and Spain can break apart, why can’t Texas and Dixie break away from the USA?
Note: Naturally, we will have a live thread tomorrow on Scotland’s independence vote. In the meantime, check out what the Catalans are doing in Spain. It is also worth noting here that both versions of Catalonia’s flag were created in the 20th century.
