It’s a serf’s life in Indian River County and a recent resolution by the Indian River County Commissars proves just that.
Tuesday, the County Commission passed a resolution in response to one by the city of South Miami, which proposes cutting Florida in half at Interstate 4 and creating a new state, South Florida. In the county’s resolution, the commission said it wants the 27th state to remain as is and if a secession ever did happen, Indian River County should remain part of the original Florida.
The fundamental rights of human beings are the right of self-ownership and the right to self-determination.
The Commissars in IRC have tried to remove that right from people and determine for their constituents rather than permitting the constituents to decide themselves.
Commissar Solari has recently attacked property rights of the individual and now attacks their right to self-determination going along with the IRC to attempt to take that right away from the people in Indian River County.
Solari continue his All Aboard Florida majority rule binge and dictates what the “people” of IRC want as if they all want the same thing or came from the same place.
“Many citizens of Indian River moved from south Florida to what they thought was a better way of life,” Commissioner Bob Solari wrote in the resolution opposing secession. “(They) may well be traumatized by becoming part of the state of South Florida.”
What on earth are the welfare recipient Commissars doing wasting taxvictim dollars on this issue while they drag their feet in providing safe railway crossings? Solari should’ve stuck with his gut.
Solari said his impulse was to ignore the South Florida idea, but he heard murmurs that the idea could gain traction. Addressing the matter in a county resolution sends the message that Indian River isn’t on board.
“Hopefully this is the last time we have to deal with the concept,” Solari said.
Solari sounds like King George when the colonies first resisted.
Secession is deeply an American principle and the Commissars like Solari would like to take that right away from you. They would rather command your actions than let you decide for yourself.
The reasons given by the City of South Miami are hardly desirable but the idea of secession itself is great as it decentralizes power.
Devolving government into smaller units promotes economic growth. The smaller the size of government, the less power it has to hobble free enterprise with taxes and regulations. -Ron Paul
You can see why power hungry politicians like the Commissars in Indian River are opposed.
Scotland just barely missed approving secession recently. Catalonia made an informal vote of 80% (over 2 million votes) for seceding from Spain. Venice is doing the same in Italy and this is great for freedom.
Fortunately Solari’s hopes that this is the last talk of secession are dead wrong. The fact that the Commissars had to waste taxvictims money in Indian River is proof of it.
It was Ghandi who said,
First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.
So what of the state of secession in America?
Support for secession is also growing in America. According to a recent poll, one in four Americans would support their state seceding from the federal government. Movements and organizations advocating that state governments secede from the federal government, that local governments secede from state governments, or that local governments secede from both the federal and state governments, are springing up around the country. This year, over one million Californians signed a ballot access petition in support of splitting California into six states. While the proposal did not meet the requirements necessary to appear on the ballot, the effort to split California continues to gain support.
Americans who embrace secession are acting in a grand American tradition. The Declaration of Independence was written to justify secession from Britain. Supporters of liberty should cheer the growth in support for secession, as it is the ultimate rejection of centralized government and the ideologies of Keynesianism, welfarism, and militarism.
…The growth of support for secession should cheer all supporters of freedom, as devolving power to smaller units of government is one of the best ways to guarantee peace, property, liberty — and even cheap whiskey!
