BTY, I'd go with the other parts of your plan! Believe it or not.
If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.
When a person is rich, they are the ones getting the most from our economic system. As a simple value proposition, they should be willing to pay more for the system that's been so good to them.
And it is, indeed, possible for wealthy Americans to move out of America completely because, or in significant influence of economic factors. The wealthiest of Americans are usually those in charge of millions of jobs. It's part of the reason (in my opinion) that they've decided to take this money and put it some where else. That is why GE received a hefty tax return instead of paying their "fair share." Can we say flat tax?
- Colonel Paul YinglingNobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.
Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.
All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
And a decentralized United States based on the self-determination of citizens is a populist cause. It's the people's government and the perfect example of a bottom-up model of self-governing. I'm not proposing succession should be legal and tolerated, but that the rights of individual states are far too wide than is commonly accepted. The federal government has overtaken control in so many aspects of our lives and even the lives of people in other countries. It is absolutely unnecessary, harmful, and unconstitutional.
