In my last article, “Secession, The Second Amendment and Sun Tzu,” I ended by saying that American states that revitalized their militias “may secede knowing that they are capable of defending their decision from all who would attempt to use force to prevent their exit.”
But there may be more players in this drama who would wish to prevent the secession of an American state and ultimately the dissolution of the United States of America. Or, those very players might welcome the sight of the USA going the way of the USSR.
I have also written about the informal group “Oath Keepers,” (www.oathkeepers.org). Oath Keepers is a non-partisan association of currently serving military, reservists, National Guard, veterans, Peace Officers, and Fire Fighters who will fulfill the Oath they swore, with the support of like minded citizens who take an Oath to stand with them, to “support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, so help us God.” Their Oath is to the Constitution.
To the degree that the Oath Keepers are successful spreading their message throughout the military and law enforcement communities, there will be less and less soldiers, cops and veterans willing to enforce Federal dictates. That will be a godsend for Liberty, but very bad juju for Washington. American military and law enforcement personnel may not be willing to fire upon American citizens who band together to secede, just wanting to be free of Washington’s tyrannical rule.
So, what could Washington do if it wanted to prevent or reverse a secession, and force a state to stay in the Union? How might they respond to a lack of obedience from their military or from law enforcement?
Holler for help from the United Nations.
Do you think that UN troops would have any such moral conflict? Would they be anything but mercenary troops on our soil? I contend that the blue berets would not hesitate to enforce some future UN resolution enacted in New York City against the secession of an American state.
Conversely, the one-world-government types might welcome the dissolution of the USA. They might think that getting Washington out of the way could grease the skids for a one-world government and a new world economic system.
I don’t think there are any blue hats patrolling in Switzerland. But I could be wrong. Think about it. Armed neutrality is the new old way.
The person who spends some time thinking about every possible scenario will make better plans and will have less chance of being surprised by any event.
