Is there any doubt that statesâ€™ rights are under attack more than ever before?
As Iâ€™m sure youâ€™ve heard, the latest liberal hysteria surrounding the placement of the Confederate battle flag has swept the nation. And unfortunately, many of my conservative friends and colleagues have fallen prey to this radical, Big Government scheme.
With all the noise surrounding this issue, please allow me to be abundantly clear where I stand. It is my fervent belief that the Confederate flag is a proud symbol of the following:
- Resistance against a federal, centralized power that FAR overreached its Constitutional limits.
- Statesâ€™ rights and Constitutional liberties, which many have fought and died protecting.
- Southern heritage and a culture that values freedom, even in the face of federal tyranny.
It is certainly important for us to take steps that prevent future acts of violence. But in this pursuit of peace, should we also dismantle the historical symbols that memorialize statesâ€™ rights?
My answer is an emphatic â€œNO!â€
The plain and simple truth is that the placement of this flag will not prevent future tragedies. Itâ€™s abundantly clear that the radical liberal agenda is behind this push to remove the flag, which raises the question: where does it all end?
Are we to also remove the names of Confederate officers from our roads? Should we crumble all the Civil War monuments that dot our nationâ€™s landscape?
Doug, itâ€™s time to take a stand. Right here. Right now.
Over 150 years ago, brave Confederates made a bold stand against an oppressive government that far overstepped its Constitutional limits. Will you please take a stand with me now by signing my online petition to keep the flag flying?
States all over the nation are giving ground to the radical liberals by removing the symbol of statesâ€™ rights from their historical monuments. But if we can make a stand here and now, we can send a strong message to the elites in DC that statesâ€™ rights are still alive and well.
Please click here now to sign my petition, which I will then present to my colleagues in the South Carolina legislature. Letâ€™s show them how much we value our heritage!
Thank you for all you do.
P.S. Please stand with me in this fight to protect states' rights by signing my petition today!
