We ain't what we was meant to be.Submitted by ODell Equip on Wed, 04/22/2009 - 10:20
I posted this as a response to the "secession?" thread. I know a majority of you know this, but some may not, read up on it.
What we were taught in school isn't true. The "official story" on how our government was set up to work is no better than any other "official story" they give us.
It is amazing the number of folks that see the need to get out of the United Nations, but can't fathom the States being free.
We were originally set up as a group of "united states" a state being a nation. The States weren't subservient to the United States, the United States was supposed to be subservient to to the individual States. The "united states" was set up to be like the united nations, a peace time confederacy used for joint protection and bargaining with other nations or "states".
For most all of history a "state" was defined as a free country or nation, only in the last 148 years or so has the definition of a "state" been relegated to a subservient position to a higher power. The individual sovereign "states" or nations agree to voluntarily join the "united states" just as nations join the UN. If a nation wants to leave the UN due to its oppressive and tyrannical rules, then you would cheer them on and be happy.
Well, it is the same thing with the "united states" the "states" were meant to be able to leave at any time, they just couldn't join into another political body while still members of the "united states" But, it was understood they could leave at anytime, since the were their own free nations.
Why did King George recognize each of the colonies individually at the end of the revolution? Because the whole world recognized each, colony to be a free and independent nation or "state"
Just because our alleged leaders can't understand this and it has been demonized by them, and our GOVERNMENT RUN education system teaches the exact opposite that doesn't make the facts change.
It is further apparent that the larger any entity becomes the more wasteful and corrupt it becomes, so to use the logic of, " we can't be divided" is just plain silly. If each "state" or nation was allowed to be free again, then how much more manageable and transparent would our government be?
Folks are always harping on how the UN is too big and too powerful, well open your eyes the federal government is the same dang thing. Just much more entrenched into our daily lives than the U N will ever be. Yet, you except it as gospel that that is how it was supposed to be? It wasn't, and it is not!!
