CCTA Wakeup Call
The first part is the recording of Cliff Muncy from our public meeting on September 19 with Cliff and John Ainsworth of “America’s Remedy,” and that served as a spring-board for our ideas.
You’ll remember John Ainsworth set the stage with historical information about the recent war of northern aggression, the north’s insisting that southern states which seceded from the Union and joined the Confederacy were just rebels, and those states were still in the Union, and had to be subdued. This view remained in place for a time after the war, but then, the Reconstruction Acts caused the Confederate states to be viewed as a conquered foreign country, and they were made territories of the United States and coerced into again rejoining the Union in an unconstitutional way that “reset America and her demi-sovereign states.”
The remedy being proposed by “America’s Remedy” as expressed by Cliff involves having a relatively significant number of people “reestablishing citizenship in your re-established state” (that is to say, citizenship in the version of North Carolina that was in existence prior to the war), because the citizens of that version of North Carolina were the people harmed by the unconstitutional acts carried out during Reconstruction and those citizens have “standing” in courts to sue for regress of grievances.
That set off a bit of a firestorm among ourselves. We had varying degrees of agreement and disagreement with taking that approach as a way to curtail the overreaching federal government. No two of us thought exactly alike, but we all agreed on the goal.
Our discussion went from America’s Remedy’s remedy to other possible remedies and then to how long we think we have to successfully correct federal overreach. That took us to the idea that, “If Texas turns blue, there goes the ball game,” and how Colorado was turned blue via the “Rocky Mountain Heist,” and the idea U.S. Representative Mark Meadows expressed when he visited New Bern on September 15th about giving the libs the “millions of dollars” and conservatives could still win with “millions of boots on the ground,” and finally the Randy Ramsey (about $400,000) vs. Senator Norman Sanderson (about $40,000 plus thousands of boots) race which was won handily by Norm was remembered.
We were all over the map, but it was a logical progression of ideas. Honestly.
