Pre-Secession Action for States
By Russell D. Longcore
DumpDC.com exists for only one reason…to promote the orderly secession of states from the United States of America to sovereign nationhood.
Actually, there is a second reason…because I need a place to vent my spleen and through writing, make a life-changing difference in the lives of others.
So, today let’s talk about what states should do before they secede. I say “should” do, since the states of the Soviet Union did not do these actions before they seceded. But things are much different now than they were in 1989, so American states must do basically two things to prepare for their secession.
1. Create a monetary system.
States could begin training their citizens now to use gold and silver by requiring them to pay their property taxes, ad valorem tax, etc., with gold and silver, either in coins or with some sort of electronic gold account. This could even be done now while the hard asset value is tied to the US Dollar. After all, the US Constitution says (Art. I, Sect. 10) that “no state shall make anything but gold and silver coin a tender in payment of debts.”
So the obvious question arises: why does ANY state accept Federal Reserve notes as payment of debts, including taxes? Clearly they are prohibited from doing so by the Constitution. Answer? The states abdicated their authority to Washington and became wards of the Federal government.
