    FOOLS' NAMES & FOOLS' FACES ARE OFTEN SEEN IN PUBLIC PLACES

    Slavery was an institution of such magnitude and such horror
    as,
    when coupled with such issues as tariffs,
    resulted in an effort of eleven slave-holding States
    to secede from the Union,
    thus creating the American Civil War (1861-1865)

    Those who sought to secede lost that war.
    and, fortunately,
    today,
    though the federal government is far off its constitutional base,
    and though it is utterly corrupt,
    and though to has reduced,
    and though it seeks to further curtail our liberties and freedoms,
    we are one people with no animosity within the great majority
    and with nothing but friendship between the states.

    Pressed hard enough,
    we might revolt
    against the stupidity
    of those who presently rule us
    and by the use of force
    retake and reshape our Constitution.

    But there is no deep divide
    betwen those who make up the great majority of our people,
    and there is but one state
    that might profit for a time by seceding
    but should it do so
    it would not be strong to long endure,

    Fools' names and fools' faces
    are often seen in public places,
    and the petitions are naught
    but one of those places.

    No animosity? No deep divide? You are clearly new to the board

    And why should having a different central government create animosity or a deep divide? I don't think we have any issue with Canadians, for example. In fact, we probably have less issues because we have different central governments.

    Shock is showing us just how scared he is.

    You KNOW there is Tyranny when the People are afraid to participate in the Instruments of Democracy such as these online petitions.
