Dear Confederates & Patriots (bcc herein),
I will be short with this message—

For many years my Confederate Brethren and I have been trying our best to tell you what has been coming & WHY.

The basis for our positions & what it means & meant for EACH of YOU was simple — how the original Constitution (the first 10 Amendments), and our History (particularly those years preceding 1865) was usurped, undermined & altered by a group of men whose intentions then, were

NO less the same than those of today and, who are, in fact, but an extension of the other.

Everything since the culmination of what is commonly referred to as the American Civil War in April, 1865,  including those many additional Amendments that were added to the Constitution following the War & the History that has been written since, & because of those Amendments,  is where it ALL began to go wrong.
In marginalizing the State Republics, the Federals created the basis through which this country became institutionalized! 
It didn’t happen all at once or overnight, but over a protracted period of time. 

And during this time and through advanced institutionalization, this country’s people became weaker and weaker… while the Federal Leviathan became bigger & stronger and bigger & stronger.
We have been telling you this for years but many, unfortunately, did not listen.
And now, reality in its ugliest and most frightening form is about ready to seal your fate and ours as well.
I’m going to forward EACH of you a number of communiqués addressing a variety of subjects that are NOW sensitive to everyone across this country- beginning with this cartoon below that was sent to me by one of our brethren.

When y’all receive them, please note their dates, the subject matter and the fact that they were written or sent by a number of different people.
EACH of them, although ‘conjecture’ as they were being called THEN by our enemies, have become TODAY’S REALITY!
> From the lies regarding the War For Southern Independence as described within today’s Federal School’s and its impact on YOU;

> From the Federal debt held by our enemy, the Red Chinese, its direct implications to us and the U.S. dollar, and what that means to YOU;

> From the theft of our tax money in the name of a bogus ‘Stimulus’ Bill and all those that have followed it since;

> From us telling you that unemployment would exceed 10% when your Federal Government said it would never climb above 8%;

> From the lies and deception surrounding Cap & Trade and the Bogus Global Warming claims and its relationship to YOU and this country;

> From Obama and his band of Marxist, Racist friends;

> From the theft of Christmas to the Institutionalized bogus HealthCare Bill (S) and much, much more….. read what was said THEN and compare it to that which exists TODAY!

From so-called conjecture as mentioned, to the harsh reality of today…..and what they ALL mean for YOU!

I sincerely hope that EACH of you peruse them.

They will come to you entitled ‘Confederate Communiqués’ in the subject line. Share them one and all if you please.

Equally, after reading or viewing them, I would ask you this: Have we Confederates not been ‘Bang On’ from the start?

You see, as it was written and told to each of us- "The Truth Shall Set You Free."
We fought a War NOT because of slavery but to preserve that which was agreed to upon the conclusion of our Revolutionary War- A Republic of Sovereign’s whose people’s within EACH of those Sovereign’s could choose their own destiny against the backdrop of a small but controlled Central Government under State CONTROL……a self-evident conclusion under the 10th Amendment of the original Constitution insuring & assuring the fact that the ‘dog would wag its own tail’….in other words, the People would remain in control!
Individual State Sovereignty, free from Federal Control, would guarantee individuality and freedom for ALL.
However and because of our loss (that I contend was this Nation’s loss), the social dogma of Political Entitlement was ‘officially’ born — created by that same political body whose philosophy created that War & whose continued ‘massage’ ever since, through massive social re-engineering laws & practices, and used as a means for control & self perpetuation, is why & how we have arrived at this time and place in our history.

It has become a ‘government vehicle’, not unlike those of earlier ‘Federal Democracy’s’  throughout world history who used & manipulated massive social re-engineering & contrived polarization techniques as a means to their end.

Equally & similarly, they are all fueled & paid for via a massive & corrupt tax basis that defies the very Constitution upon which this country was founded. 

We People, through the extortion known as Federal Taxes, are the fuel that perpetuates this insanity.
Our Central, Federal Power is NO different then those that have already collapsed.

It is a political theorem through which their wheels of power are perpetually greased via the sweat of our labor.

Thus, the Central Power becomes the Chief Overseer, insuring their perpetuity while systematically controlling Everything & Everyone through a failed judicial system based exclusively upon Special Interests.
In conclusion, I would like to share the following, written by Confederate Major General Patrick Cleburne as it puts all of the above into perspective:
"As to my own position, I hope to see the Union preserved by granting the South the full measure of her Constitutional Rights.  If this can not be done, I hope to see all Southern States united in a new Confederation and that we can effect a peaceable separation.  If both of these are denied us, I am with Arkansas in weal or woe.  I have been elected and hold a commission of Captain of the Volunteer Rifle Company of this place and I can say for my Company that if the Stars and Stripes become the standard of a tyrannical majority, the ensign of a violated league, it will no longer command our love or respect but will command our best efforts to drive them from our State.  I am with the South in life or in death, in victory or in defeat…..I believe the North is about to wage a brutal and unholy war on a people who have done them no wrong, in violation of the Constitution and the fundamental principles of government.  They no longer acknowledge that all government derives its validity from the consent of the governed.  They are about to invade our peaceful homes, destroy our property, and inaugurate a servile insurrection, murder our men and dishonour our woman.  We propose no invasion of the North, no attack on them, and only ask to be left alone."
There in a nutshell, is everything YOU and YOUR CHILDREN have been denied- the Language of Truth!

It’s 1860 once again and, like General Cleburne, I hold steadfast to the same beliefs as he.
ALL Roads Lead to 1865!

For God, Family and The Confederacy,

PS- Will YOU Join Us NOW?
PPS- On behalf of The Confederate Society of America, its membership, and all those Organization’s that comprise The Confederate Alliance- we would like to wish y’all a very Merry Christmas and a Healthy & Happy New Year to All!  God Bless.
