The Uncommon Bond
31 March 2013

How many times I have ask myself; Why are the Southern People so different from the cult of Yankeeisms?  I have often thought the difference lay in the separate course our two peoples have taken over the centuries.  The Southern People, primarily the descendants of the Celtics, have traditions going back more then 2,500 years.  We possess a deep love of music, song and story telling.  We were wanderers and sojourners, carrying with us a heart felt gift.  Because we have always acquired so many enemies, we learned of loyalty, duty and honor toward one another.

.

Because we depended so overwhelmingly on the bounties of nature, we learned of nature's god, the Almighty God of Heaven.  We have always been sorely outnumbered in battle, so good odds come to mean, only two to one against us.  Our survival depended more on our wits, cunning and imagination, then on superior force.  We as a people, because of these, come to know and appreciate concepts like freedom, liberty and individuality.  Because these traits are ingrained in us collectively, we are, for that reason, more then likely to survive this present occupation, and as a separate and distinct people, live to see the fall of the Yankee Empire.

.
There could have been no republic of sovereign states, known as the United States of America, without our people.  We were there, and predominated every inch of the way.  The Declaration of Rights - First Continental Congress, its President was Peyton Randolph!  Patrick Henry - agitated for armed resistance against British rule.  Thomas Jefferson - author of the Declaration of Independence.  The Commander of the Colonial Forces during the first revolution was George Washington.  James Madison - father of the United States Constitution.  Andrew Jackson won a victory against British forces at New Orleans.
.

James Knox Polk - 11th U.S. President during the War with Mexico, secured the territories of New Mexico, Texas and California.  The early prestige of the U.S. Supreme Court was due to John Marshall.  These were all Southerners, as were four of the first five Presidents and ten of the first sixteen.  (References: Encyclopedia Americana, Facts The Historians Leave Out - by John S. Tilley and popular culture).  The Southern People are indeed different, and without our presence how would history be different?  Well, all the good colonial subjects would be waving the British Jack, and pledging allegiance to the British Crown; those opposed would be dead.

.
It goes further then these!   Every form of music, except classical and rap, was created by Southerners, Bluegrass, Dixieland, jazz, rock-and-roll, western, country and the popularization of gospel.  All this out of the love and creative talents of Southerners, of all races!  The early floundering movie industry, which now spews out so much revisionism and hatred against our history and culture, came to prominence as a result of Mr. G.W. Griffith, among his creations, was The Birth of A Nation - 1915.   His work brought about packed theaters in every community, as well as a premiere showing at the White House, under President Woodrow (Thomas) Wilson, to high acclaim.
.
Since those beginnings, most of the finest movies and story telling ever brought to the silver screen was either created by, or was about Southerners.  The first iron warship, submarine and torpedo, which made modern navies possible, came from the mind of the Southern People.  Are we different?  You can bet your Hound Dog we are, and proudly so.  And without the Southern People, and our Southland, most of the Yankees would still be peasants in some backwater nowhere.  Those who may not think so, I challenge you; pick two people, one true Southerners, and one Yankees.
.
Now go separately and alone on world tour, away from the big city tourist sights, off the beaten pathways of China, India, Russia and South America.  Visibly display your respective national flags and symbols on your clothing, transport and luggage.  Take no extra money or promises, with which to buy friendship.  See whose culture, symbols and political ideology, they admire.  You'll find out, only one is likely to return alive to tell the story, and it won't be the Yankees.

Deo Vindice!

   Grandpa’s Confederacy
                   31 March 2013

On this page, as Editor in Chief and a Grandpa, my own concepts of the Confederate States of America, as envisioned in the modern context of our times, will be discussed.  While some may choose to disagree, I believe most will not, however, be that as it may, the opinions expressed herein are my own, and I stand by them.  The below represents only a few of the basic precepts of the Confederacy Society, which I envision!

I.   The Confederacy will be liberated from occupation and cultural cleansing, and its government restored under the Confederate States Constitution of 1861.  Any desired changes in the constitution can be made through the amendment process, after the liberation!
.
II.  National elections will be called by the individual member States, so as to fill the now vacant but valid seats in the Confederate States Government.  While the States would not do such a thing now, they will when the time comes, and conditions change!
.
III. The individual member States are and must remain sovereign, over all domestic affairs within their own borders!  All or most of the political controversies and friction of our time, are derived for the most part, from federal intervention in State domestic affairs.

IV. The concept of freedom from religion, which has been used as a tool to cleanse society of the Christian Faith, must be set aside for ever!  Our unalienable rights include freedom of religion, not freedom from religion, and this right shall not be infringed.

V.  The concept of freedom carries with it certain obligations, such rights must not be redefined as a free-for-all, whereby morality has become irrelevant; the Confederacy must return to that of a just, moral, honorable and predominantly Christian society.

VI.  Society has for decades widely advocated the doctrine of political correctness, whereby certain words and actions are taboo, which has the effect of stymieing truth.  Homosexuality, as an example, is a perversion and a sin against both God and Man, but is now considered no more then an alternate lifestyle.  This must be reversed, whereby morality is restored, and such perversions are no longer acceptable!

VII. The feminization of men and the changing of women to where they are masculine; this must be halted and reversed; this is not an issue of equal rights for women, but rather a willful indoctrination, so as to create a socialistic matriarchal society.
.
VIII. The Yankee culture whereby women dress as men and men wear long hair and ear rings as would a women must be halted, it is time for our Confederate men to be honorable, Christian Gentlemen, as they aught, and our women to exemplify the Southern Belles.
.
IX. The purpose of the ‘Civil Rights’ movement was understood to be that of an equal right to pursue happiness, which by definition does not and must not include equal results.  Equality yes, but this cannot be allowed to further denigrate into a privileged race, class or sex!

X.  The citizens of a liberated Confederacy must not be burdened with the stigma of past slavery!  Slavery was an institution of its own time in the Old South, the Yankees profited by their importation, and sold slaves to the south, the Southerners at that time bought them.

Deo Vindice!
