Federal Government Goes After Texas DPS Over Border Enforcement

In the wake of this week’s declaration of a migrant invasion by several Texas counties and a subsequent executive order from Governor Greg Abbott, the Federal Government has made its next move to keep the border crisis alive. Ever one to follow the pressure of the day by giving people a half-hearted version of what […]

Book Review – The Next Civil War

Overall, I liked this book. However, there were times when I seriously considered not finishing it. The first half+ was grossly biased against right-wingers. Now, I don’t consider myself to be right-wing. I’m not a Republican, or much of a Trump fan. But the lopsidedness of the author’s perspective was aggravating me. To be fair, […]

Is New Hampshire too small to be a country?

Is New Hampshire too small to be a country? Some people find the idea of an independent New Hampshire unreasonable on the grounds that it’s just too small a state. Sure, they can envision a Republic of Texas… or a California Republic… but New Hampshire? It’s tiny, rural, sparsely populated, and its entire economy relies […]

How Many People Support Secession?

How many people support secession? Perhaps you think secession is just something that those rowdy Texans want. (Note: we fully support our Texan brothers’ efforts to regain their independence!). Or southern boys flying a Confederate flag. Or our French-speaking neighbors to the north (bonjour, Quebecois!) If you think they’re the only ones… think again! Multiple […]

CACR32 New Hampshire Constitutional Amendment relating to Independence

A truly historic event took place on March 10, 2022. For the first time, the New Hampshire House of Representatives voted on a constitutional amendment, CACR32, that would have allowed the citizens of New Hampshire to vote on whether “New Hampshire peaceably declares independence from the United States and immediately proceeds as a sovereign nation.” […]

What will happen to my Social Security?

Some people may worry that, if New Hampshire peacefully secedes, they will lose their Social Security. What about all of those paycheck deductions over the years? How will they fund their retirement? This is a reasonable concern! Fortunately, there is an easy answer to this. Social Security is already paid out to individuals who live […]

Is Secession Illegal?

No, secession is not illegal. There is nothing in the U.S. Constitution that prohibits a state from choosing to leave the union. And the Constitution is the supreme law of the United States. British colonists founded the United States when they decided to secede from Great Britain. The Declaration of Independence spells out their rationale […]

Surely You Can’t Be Serious?

“Surely you can’t be serious? You’re starting a website about… secession?!” I know what some of you are thinking. In fact, I’ve had some of the same thoughts myself. It’ll NEVER happen! Only a handful of weirdos will ever support THAT! People will think you’re a racist if you even mention the word secession Why […]
