The new Facebook page,
Republic of New England,
has engendered quite a bit of
interesting traffic and comments.
We need to make clear that our
proposal is entirely peaceful,
involving no revolt or resistance,
nor any fund raising at this time.
Our separation from the U.S.A.
is predicated on a collapse of
the federal government, which has
already reached a critical stage.
Congress now has ceased to
pass any progressive legislation
out of fear that the executive branch
will fail to execute its provisions.
In the short term, appropriations
may continue to keep the government
functioning, while heightening the
concern over defaulting the debt.
We are in communication with
many separatist and secessionist
movements, ranging from serious
to fanciful recreations of the past.
A premise is developing that big
governments are too big and risk
collapse when they are out of touch
with the people they purport to serve.
History is full of examples of empires
that reached their expiration date.
We fear that the land of the free and
the home of the brave no longer exists.
More of the important events
of our lives are tightly regulated
while dependence on taxpayer
largesse becomes the norm.
