The Long View of Secession
The Anglo-Saxon tradition of political self-determination is clear and irrefutable; today’s multi-ethnic and multi-cultural proposition nation of guilt-ridden "Christians in name only" has no clue of the English fountain of liberty.

Richard Bland’s Inquiry Into the Rights of Man:
"Saxon history showed a people exerting their "natural Right to relinquish their Country, and by retiring from it, and associating together, to form a new political Society and independent State." (There is)…a parallel with the Englishmen who crossed the Atlantic to America; they had exerted a similar natural right. "When subjest are deprived of their civil Rights," (Bland’s) Inquiry explained:
"or are dissatisfied with the Place they hold in the Community, they have a natural Right to quit the Society of which they are Members, and to retire into another Country. Now when men exercise this Right, and withdraw themselves from their Country, they recover their natural Freedom and Independence: The Jursidiction and Sovereignty of the State they have quitted ceases; and if they unite, and by common Consent take Possession of a new Country, and form themselves into a political Society, they become a sovereign State, independent of the State from which they separated.
If then the subjects of England have a natural Right to relinquish their Country, and by retiring from it, and associating together, to form a new political Society and independent State, they must have a Right, by Compact with the Sovereign of the Nation, to remove into a new Country, and to form a civil Establishment upon the terms of the Compact. In such a Case, the Terms of the Compact must be obligatory and binding upon the Parties; they must be the Magna Charta, the fundamental Principels of Government, to this new Society; and every Infringement of them must be wrong, and may be opposed."
