Secession Ideas Enter the Georgia Governor’s Race

Over the weekend of the 4th of July, I began seeing a TV spot for the front-running Democratic candidate for Governor, former Governor Roy Barnes. Looks like ol’ Roy wants to live in the Big House on West Paces Ferry Road again.

But here’s where it gets interesting. Roy says that industry is laughing at Georgia. Here’s the script:

Narrator: A governor can create jobs by selling the advantages of Georgia to firms looking for a home. But it’s hard for industry to take us seriously when the Legislature attempts to outlaw stem cell research, passes bills about microchips in the brain, and talks about seceding from the Union.

Barnes: We can’t bring jobs to Georgia with the rest of the country laughing at us. I’ll make Georgia work.

Watch the TV spot below.

Now, I get to comment.

First…governors can’t create shit. Actually let me correct myself. About all a governor CAN create is shit. But they certainly don’t create jobs. Employers create jobs, and jobs are nothing more than the labor cost of a product or service. But jobs are not supposed to be an end, only a means to an end. Politicians on both sides of the Georgia Governor’s race say these stupid things about jobs, and people too stupid to know the difference just let ’em.

Second…industry has taken Georgia pretty seriously over the last 25 years. More Fortune 500 companies have their headquarters in Georgia than any other state. Talking about banning stem cell research won’t affect any industry that isn’t in the stem cell business. There are thousands of companies in hundreds of industries that couldn’t care less about stem cell research. Roy, you’re only using this as a wedge against the Republican-controlled Legislature.

Third…and the most fun of all…the Georgia Legislature actually did get a resolution passed about secession. SR632 was passed and adopted by the Georgia Senate on April 10, 2009. It affirmed state’s rights based upon Jeffersonian principles.

But Roy, ol’ buddy, if Georgians ever actually had the stones to rise up against Washington and secede, industry would stumble over each other to get to Georgia.


1) No more crushing Federal regulations, including EPA and OSHA.
2) No more federal income tax and being forced to be the tax collector for DC through withholding.
3) No more Social Security taxes
4) No Federal debt hanging over everyone’s head in Georgia

I could go on, but I’ve already written a ton about what it would be like in a state that secedes. If you want more, look in the Archives.

In closing, I just have to differ with ol’ Roy Barnes. As the Federal government implodes, and a deeper depression destroys more of the American economy, and then the dollar finally collapses, the states are going to be faced with a decision: either go it alone or stay serfdoms under a criminal Washington DC. If you think that secession is laughable, Roy, we’ll see who’s laughing when the shit hits the fan.

Secession is the only hope for liberty on the North American continent. Who will be first?

    Hey Russ,

    This is a great post …. a powerful one/two knockout punch proving what an imbecile the Democrat candidate for Governor truly is …

    but aren’t all of these candidates truly imbeciles?

    And aren’t we less than imbeciles if we continue to particiapte in this charade called the ‘free and fair election’?

    When every American who votes, dips their thumb in indelible purple ink, and then when the number of purple thumbs matches the number of votes that have been cast, then and only then will I ever beleive that we have ‘free and fair’ elections in America.


    BTW I read an interesting article called “The State of Secession” on The article sites you along with Timothy Baldwin as two of the people most responsible for the advancement of secession “scholarship”.

    I congratualte you on this deserved praise from “Secession University” as I, in my short time venturing into the world of secession, have also identifed you and Timothy Baldwin as two people that I can count on for Truth and Reason when it comes to the idea and principles of secession.

    In other words … you know what the hell you are talking about.


    “Who WILL be the First?”

    Why not Arizona? They are truly getting jobbed by the Feds … they are surely NOT receiving the services they have paid for through the Federal Tax system … and in a sense, by threatening to sue Arizona for attempting to defend their sovereignty, the Obama Federal Government of the Divided States has TAKEN THE FIRST SHOT!

    The time for secession is at hand.

    Take your secession talk and implanted brain chips ideas back to wherever you came from. Roy Barnes will be the next Governor of Georgia.

      Dear Wingnut:

      Thanks so much for writing. I wondered if the “other side” ever read this blog and now you’ve confirmed that. You’ll be happy to learn that my tin-foil hat protects my implanted brain chips from the transmissions from the mother ship…so I can think for myself. I think that John Oxendine will probably win the governor’s race, but ol’ Roy will give him stiff competition.

    Good post… I’d suggest one change. Instead of “if Georgians ever actually had the stones to rise up against Washington and secede”, it would have been more accurate to say: “if Georgians ever actually ha(ve) the stones to rise up against Washington and secede AGAIN”!
