Separatister vinder frem i USA

Amerikanske separatister vinder frem og støttes nu af Republikanernes grand old man Ron Paul. Fra Russia Today:

Recent polling suggests that roughly a quarter of Americans support the notion of being able to have their state separate from the rest of the US, and Paul — the 79-year-old former Republican congressman and three-time presidential hopeful — says citizens who celebrate that inkling are expressing something inherently American.

“Americans who embrace secession are acting in a grand American tradition,” the ex-lawmaker wrote in an editorial published on Sunday by the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity. “The Declaration of Independence was written to justify secession from Britain. Supporters of liberty should cheer the growth in support for secession, as it is the ultimate rejection of centralized government and the ideologies of Keynesianism, welfarism and militarism.”

Paul goes on to cite a recent Reuters/Ipsos poll that found roughly 23.9 percent of Americans strongly support or tend to support the idea of having their state break away from the US in acknowledging that the secessionist movement isn’t something solely making waves in Scotland right now, where residents voted earlier this month 55.3 percent to 44.7 percent in favor of staying with the UK.

“Even though it ultimately failed at the ballot box, the recent campaign for Scottish independence should cheer supporters of the numerous secession movements springing up around the globe,” Paul wrote on his website.

The possibility that people will break away from an oppressive government is one of the most effective checks on the growth of government. It is no coincidence that the transformation of America from a limited republic to a monolithic welfare-warfare state coincided with the discrediting of secession as an appropriate response to excessive government,” he added.

Nu skal hvide amerikanere dog måske ikke glæde sig for tidligt. Med den nuværende befolkningsudskiftning i USA, så vil Aztlán – d.v.s Californien, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas  og store dele af Colorado – nok blive det første område, der løsriver sig… for at slutte sig til Mexico.

Men enhver svækkelse af den føderale forbundsstat USA skal være velkommen.

    Hvis latinoerne i Aztlan (Californien, Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada og Texas) erklærer sig selvstændige, så bliver det ikke foreløbig. Endnu udgør de kun lidt over en trediedel af befolkningen der. Skulle det ske, så ville latino-befolkningen i USA blive mere end halveret, fra 47 millioner til 20.

    Politisk ville det betyde et dramatisk ryk væk fra venstrefløjen. Selv om Texas normalt er solidt republikansk, og flertallet af de andre stater er svingstater, så er Californien solidt demokratisk.

    Du har ret Mads, og hvem skal så betale for deres velfærdsydelser. Også Califonien er dybt forgældet.
