On 16 January 2013, President Barack Obama issued a series of twenty-three "executive actions" designed to control "gun violence" in America.
The League of the South, the premier Southern nationalist organization, issued the following statement from its President, Michael Hill:
"We encourage all Southerners to defend their God-given right to self defense. To defend oneself and one's family, real property, and rights presupposes having the means to do so, and in our day that means firearms ownership and the right to keep and bear such arms whenever and wherever necessary.
We encourage our Southern State governments--the lesser magistrates--to employ the doctrines of Nullification, Interposition, and Secession to protect their citizens from unlawful encroachments by the government of the United States."
This is just the latest example of the abandonment of the principles upon which government was established on these shores. The Declaration of Independence clearly established that we as citizens "are endowed by [our] Creator with certain unalienable Rights" And just as importantly: "That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed."
Over the years the primary purpose of government – to guarantee our God-given rights – has been lost upon the corrupt and power-hungry officials in Washington, DC. This Founding principle is now looked upon as "extreme" from both sides of the aisle.
Therefore, should the U.S. government, or our State governments, decide, as did King George III in 1775, to confiscate our weapons and ammunition, then like our ancestors we shall have no choice but to declare it an act of war and meet it with a morally justifiable, righteous, and manly armed resistance.
The only way to stop this madness is for you--the citizens--to let these corrupt government officials understand that you are ready to withdraw your consent. We urge you for the benefit of your children and grandchildren to join with us in the League of The South.
