One by One


While many are for the absolute independence of the Southern people, we must recognize that independence will only happen State by State – one by one.

Talk of Southern independence is all great and wonderful. But speaking in generalities allows most people the excuse for someone else to make it happen.

Following the sorry election of 1860 and Lincoln’s ascension to the presidency, it took the action of South Carolina on 20 December to lead the other States in secession. Mississippi, Florida and Alabama followed on 10, 11 & 12 January respectively. Georgia and Louisiana later in the month and Texas on 1 February.

From December 1860 until February 1861, seven southern States by their individual and unilateral action declared their separation from and independence of the federal Union. Only then was a confederacy formed. Until then, each State legislature and their people had to recognize that they might be the sole recipient of any Union retaliation. While they had allies in philosophy, they might end up standing alone in a fight.

The Empire’s election for a new Führer this November will be the cause of both elation and furor across the continent. Our State legislatures must prepare themselves mentally, emotionally, and physically for separation from the disaster which the Empire has become.

The separation can only happen State by State – one by one.

Are you prepared to help your State make the separation? The Southern National Congress is the only forum available for the activists in the southern States to exchange ideas and tactics. If you do not represent your State, who will?

The ninth session of the SNC meets in November, the weekend immediately following the election. Will your State be sufficiently represented? Are you willing to step up and be counted in favour of ordered Christian liberty in your State? Are you willing to make any sacrifice and recognize your personal responsibility for liberty?

Not only States must act one by one, we as individuals must act one by one.

There is still time to become a delegate, to register your attendance, and reserve your room at the hotel in Chattanooga. The instructions on all this are on our website

Rooms at a discounted price are available only through Wednesday, 12 October. Do it now!!

Our liberty will only be won – one by one.


From the Southern National Congress Original Story

  • I am not convinced that we must secede one at a time. In fact I think it would be best for most of us to secede together. For instance, let’s say Alabama is the state where secession fever is hottest. AL could pass a bill to secede effective upon the co-secession of LA, MS & FL. This of course breaks the ice for other states without Alabama actually having to go alone. This will of course throw the ball into LA & MS hands where they might pass bills to secede pending the co-secession of AL and TX. This chain could grow until several states, even states outside the old Confederacy pass similar bills.

    Given the strength of the Empire, it is very risky for one state to go alone like SC did. If the Empire simply collapses and secession is just a formality, then that may be another story. But if the Empire is in a position to send troops, then it is best for as many states as possible to premeditate and secede together, including states that may not even join our confederation once the dust settles. The more states we can take out of the Empire the better our chances of success.
