Can John C, Calhoun SAVE AMERICA?---By Thomas DiLorenzo

(from the article)
America is already experiencing a soft secession movement with more conservative citizens leading the way in moving away from the socialist disasters of New York, California, Illinois, and almost all of the big cities run by the hard-Left Democrat party political machines. They are moving to more conservative or even libertarian parts of the country such as Florida, Texas, South Carolina, Montana, and elsewhere. (Of course, each of these states also has its islands of “woke” socialism, usually around the state capitals, university towns, and inner cities with large welfare populations).

Peaceful American disunion is inevitable in the opinion of your author. It may not happen tomorrow or next week, but it will happen. We are at the end of the road of a country of some 330 million people ruled, essentially, by a few hundred (or perhaps a few dozen) political oligarchs who control one or the other of the two major political parties. The day will come when there will be a New America and New Americans. The old America will remain in the socialist hellholes of New York City, Chicago, Baltimore, San Francisco, etc. while the segment of the population that still values freedom and prosperity over tax slavery and imperialism will go elsewhere. They will take to heart the advice of the author of the Declaration of Independence that when government becomes destructive of the consent of the governed it is the peoples’ right to alter or abolish it and institute a new government more conducive to their safety and happiness.

The ideas of John C. Calhoun, the inheritor of the Jeffersonian political tradition in America, provide a roadmap for these freedom-seeking Americans of the future. As for the role of government in the new American societies of the future, Calhoun would counsel peace and “a wise and masterful inactivity” that would give all Americans the greatest chance to enjoy prosperity and to live as free human beings.

This is really good considering it was spoken of, argued about and created in the 1800’s.These educated Men KNEW this would happen to us (what is going on today) if .gov was left UNCHECKED.
The POWER of .gov will always be corruptible if left to their own devices.
The ‘Party’ in current Power controls the Electoral Process… This cannot stand anymore. It was said by somebody ‘You control the purse strings you control the World’ Well, DUH! Look at the dh**show we are experiencing today. These people KNEW this but even more AMAZING!-----HOW TO FIX IT!

"Thomas Jefferson himself would most assuredly approve of the coming American disunion. In an August 12, 1803 letter to John C. Breckenridge regarding the New England secession movement (which culminated in the 1814 Hartford Secession Convention) Jefferson wrote that, should there be a “separation” into two confederacies, “God bless them both, & keep them in the union if it be for their good, but separate them, if it be better.”

It’s a good read.

The only fly in the freedom ointment is this issue. The folks from the socialist dumps bring their voting habits and leftist attitudes with them. They readily flee those places and then try to turn the new place into the one they left. It never ceases to amaze.

An excellent argument for liberty and limited government. The nullification concept is largely associated with Calhoun’s defense of slavery but it is much broader and more critical today. Among other concepts in the article, I really liked net tax payers vs net tax consumers.
