A banner that many of my ancestors followed into battle defending the sovereignty of their states as well as their individual rights. Also, it was a symbol of a newly formed government representing eleven states of like minded learned men who grew tired of a tyrannical and oppressive federal government that had grown to large for their britches. These men believed strongly enough in their convictions, the Constitution, and the Declaration of Independence and felt it was the right of a state, as do I, to leave the union. How much longer can good people in in Southern (and other) States, which have almost nothing in common with the likes of California, Rhode Island, New York, New Hampshire, Delaware, Michigan, New Jersey, be expected to fund ridiculous prorams (i.e. "octomom", prison sex changes,etc.), It would have already stopped if the working citizens and entrepenurs of this nation were not forced at gunpoint and the threat of prison to pay illegal/confiscitory taxes which fund such madness. With the economy in shambles, self-serving politicians running wild, and a government that labels veterans, Christians, gun owners, etc, as terroist, I really don't think it will be long until states have no other choice but to lawfully and peacefully say "we have had enough, leave us alone, unmolested, to be in full control of our own destiny".

Very well said and deserves it's own post. Thanks.
I think this was my fist time posting here. I surely did not expect that. Thank you Brock for all that you and those like you do to spread the word (i.e., Ken, John, K, Mosby, CA, etc. didn't mean to leave anyone out).God save the South and these United States.JefferyAudemus jura nostra defendere
God Save The South, indeed, Sir, that would be enough for me.:)
The Stars and Barsby Piper MichaelThe stars and bars,we hear your songs,in the dissonance,of Obama's throngs.We heard the lilt,and the crazy swoon,of the monkeys crying,like a big baboon.He's taken us all,now the sun does set,on the Federal dung,last experiment.An experiment,of blood and gore,that the union is,a perfidious whore.Now we know,and now we see,on the backs of the vanquished,fought for you and for me.The States had rights,but now are none,as the Federal monster,again plays the drum.Spirit of Dixie,does live again,as the boot of the monster,on our throat now attends.The politicians lie,and the bankers cheat,as we all were taken,by the Federals teat.Doctors say good bye,unborn's silent scream,and you will pay,for their Godless dream.The Usurper mounts,up to the sky,our bodies are owned,and granny does die.Rally round the flag boys,The III are Everywhere,God's hands of justice,Head Mooslim doesn't care.They call us evil,they call us extreme,But the Evil we see,we are The III.
Thanks and posted.
