Soldiers of the Cause

            What is the mark of a true modern day Confederate Soldier, does it not include honor?

Governor, if I had foreseen the use these people desired to make of their victory, there would have been no surrender at Appomattox, no, sir, not by me.   Had I seen these results of subjugation, I would have preferred to die at Appomattox with my brave men, my sword in this right hand." --- General Robert E. Lee - as told to Texas ex-Governor F. W. Stockdale

Many have wondered, what would happen if, sufficient numbers of Southerners so called wherever they may live, as well as our allies, were to actually believe whole heartedly in the Confederate Cause?  Believe to such a degree they would be willing to go the extra mile, for the sake of Confederate Liberation?  Men and women prepared to keep an oath and to the letter, while standing ready go to any extent, within moral and scriptural limits, so as to bring about a Confederate Victory.  What is this story really about, it deals with the fundamental reasons why our just and honorable Confederate Cause, has not proven victorious years before now, and it comes down to three words, commitment, focus and persistence.  Join with us now as we as we join a band of modern Confederate Soldiers.

“Perform unto the Lord thine oaths”
.
.

“I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but untoall them also that love his appearing.” {II Timothy 4:7-8)  

It had been nearly a century and a half since the surrender of our Confederate Armies, yet no one, past or present, has ever been able to restore the broken, shattered and scattered remnants of the Confederacy or of its Armies.  Perhaps the fire, the enthusiasm, the hunger and thirst for a free, independent nation, where the weight of government is light upon the people has dissipated.  Beyond this single factor lay a fundament truth, that the Yankee Empire can muster a top professional Army, because, they can compel compliance of their oath under the force of law.  The Confederate Cause on the other hand, has no such power; therefore unless our people are prepared to take an oath and comply with its provisions, totally, completely, and without reservations, the Cause may well be doomed.  The other element in the equation is their obvious inability to keep a secret or form a top of the line Secret Society, a society that would fight for the Cause we all hold so dear.

In the heathen world of the secularists, unjust, power hungry and greedy men and women, have been able to accomplish these things for centuries, because they believe fervently in their own evil cause.  We see their efforts in the likes of the Illuminati, Bilderbergers, Skull and Bones, Free Masons, Council on Foreign Relations, and the Tri-Lateral Commission.  Societies that strive to weld power outside the will of ‘We the People’ while our own just, honorable and even righteous Cause, cannot manage even the basic rudiments of forging their equivalent.  I have turned these things over in my mind for most of my adult life, thinking our people would never be able to measure up; that was until I met a very special breed of men.

What are the principles of honor?
 

There is an obvious difference between the 21st century population of the States of the Confederacy, and that period correctly known as the War for Confederate Independence, a difference, which reaches far beyond mere numbers and into our state of mind.  Those principles upon which we stand, and of which we hold dear in our hearts as individuals, will be what makes us collectively, a separate and distinct people; we today are approximately four generations removed from our forefather of the Confederacy.  The difference amounts to a perspective on life, which today’s generation does not necessarily share, and it gets to the root cause of that great a terrible war.  It comes down to where will those of our time draw the line, what principles and values are so precious to us, we are prepared to fight and even risk death for their preservation.
.
How much regulation, adjudication, unjust laws, political correctness and socialism are we prepared to tolerate as a people, before we once more re-man the skirmish lines?  The depth of our commitment can be evidenced by the numbers of those active within the Confederate Cause, activism means going beyond merely being listed on a roster, sending email messages and posting websites, but rather doing something constructive toward advancing the Cause.  The Yankee was and remains by and large a believer in Secular Humanism, though the term was unknown at the time, the Citizens of the Confederacy on the other hand were approximately 95 percent, by and of the Christian Faith.  Most Yankees saw Christianity as a convenience and a vague generality, more then a heart felt faith in the Almighty God, the Holy Scripture and Prayer.

Even Abraham Lincoln's claim on the Christian Faith was a matter of politics, and how he wished to justify himself to future history; more then this, and he would have comprehended the unalienable right of the Southern States to peacefully secede and form a new nation. 
Perhaps I am a throwback to that earlier time, a time when buried deep within the Southern Spirit was a sense of mutual identity, and of shared values.  Shared values so precious, they were prepared to stand and fight against four and five to one, in numbers and firepower!  Whereas today, we find ourselves having to plead and beg in order to achieve such meager numbers, numbers that are small and completely lacking of self-determination, thereby constituting an empty promise of what could be, if only our people would make a determined stand.
.
Let us look at a few statistics for the sake of a comparison between our 'Confederate Forefathers Generation' and our 21st century Confederates!  Today's true Confederate activists can probably be counted in numbers of a few hundred, and that would no doubt be an exaggeration.  Our Confederate Armies numbered 750,000 and in today’s terms that would approximate 9,000,000 Confederate Soldiers under arms.  There were 664,000 deaths, counting both Union and Confederate, as well as 1,200,000 injuries, which would translate into around 31,000,000 dead and 3,800,000 injuries, if that same war took place in the 21st century.  Yet in all but a few cases, our people willingly and eagerly joined our Confederate Armies, and later had to be compelled to surrender, even in the face of such horrendous losses.
.
The population of the Confederate States, in our time, is only being asked to march in support of liberating their own nation; the Confederate States of America, while on the other hand, our forefathers were asked to lay down their lives for its independence.  Yet today all we are able to recruit is the meager few, and even these are able to measure success solely by online rhetoric, rather then by on the street activism.  I was born in 1941, still in my spirit I am a Confederate Soldier born out of season, feeling more closely related to the mindset, principles and attitude of our Confederate forefathers, rather then today’s spineless and unprincipled generation.  This is not a criticism, since if for a moment I thought criticism would awaken our people and give them backbone, I'd engage in it enthusiastically!

There are several ingredients necessary for liberating the Confederacy; among these is a deep and abiding hunger and thirst for victory, a desire so deep our people will be prepared to take what ever measures are necessary, and for whatever length of time, even generations if required.  Then there must be an embedded in the depth of our mind, soul and spirit, a sense of God, honor, duty, country and family; these must be the foundation of our character, principles and state of mind.  These must be those ideals that will drive us ever onward until victory is achieved.  If the independence of our nation is not worth so great a devotion, then we place a cheap price upon liberty.  Therefore God, honor, duty, country and family must mean more to us then mere rhetoric, to be uttered at convenient times.

God save the Confederacy

Proclamation of Independence

The Confederate Cause
.

“If a man can not stand firm for honor and principle before the footmen, what will he do when the horsemen come?   Shall he compromise with tyranny in order to purchase ease and comfort for a season, at the expense of his own posterity?  There are many among our numbers claiming to be Confederate and Southern, while having already traversed that very road, resulting from an attitude of procrastination, compromise and complacency.  Those who will today surrender his own history, heritage, culture and nationhood today for the sake of a gilded cage, will surrender his unalienable rights on the same alter tomorrow.  In like manor, he who accepts the ways of his enemy, sells his soul to them, and in due course of time, he will find the price he paid, measured in blood.”
