    Sounds like an interesting concept that would be virtually impossible to establish.

    You may misunderstand, this would not have to be approved in a Baptist church business meeting :laugh:

    :D That's a good one!
    Anyway, you would have to get it past Washington and you see how ineffective that group is in getting anything accomplished. Not to mention the positions of power that would have to be abolished and/or down graded.

    How about 50 sovereign nations under a revised Articles of Confederation as a starting place? The provinces and states of Mexico and Canada can then join as sovereign nations if they so choose.

    Americans are to fat and happy. There will be no great change without a shooting civil war.

    When we forget God who ordained us a Nation so too will we forget our American brotherhood.

    Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
    Between their loved home and the war's desolation!
    Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
    Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
    Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
    And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
    And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
    O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

    Unity is needed, not division.
