The last I heard there was people in forty states that have started petitions for their states to seceded from the union. I would be one of the first to tell you I do not agree with the craziness that is going on in Washington. Secession is not the way to go. I believe there is still time to stand up and do want is right and work together and make the changes that need to be done.
Instead of secession of the states, the states and local government needs to work of balancing their budgets and make sure they can provide the services they need to provide without the help of the federal government. If things do not change the federal government will not be about to provide the the services that them have promise and mandated. We need our state and local governments to be doing the right things so when hard times come, we can take care of the people who will need the help. Secession will only lead to war and war rarely leads to good things.
Instead of signing petitions for your state to secede, you should make sure you are getting prepared for the things that are coming. Their will be people who will need you to be prepared because they can not prepare for themselves or they believe the government will take care of them. It is not time to turn our backs on our fellow Americans and try to warn them of the hard times take are coming if we continue to travel down the course we are heading down and preparing to be able to care for ourselves and people in need when them come.
If the federal government will not listen to the people, then we need to start with ourselves and local government and work our way up. Things you can do is start your own business even if you have a job already. You do not know if you will have a job to go to when the the hard times come. I do not expect the men and women in Washington to do what needs to be done. They will do what sounds good and blame the someone else when their bright ideas do not not. You can run for office even if it is a local office. Get involve and help your local officials be prepared. The local governments are the closes to the people and know the needs of the people best.
Secession is not an option at this time. There are many other things to be done before it should be put on the table. Most of all we should be praying for our country and the people in the government that they will make the right choices.
