It's official. The Catholic Knight is retired.  I'm hanging up the helmet and passing the torch. There will be no more articles, no more commentaries, no more calls to action. THIS BLOG IS CLOSED. I've spent a very long time thinking about this, I believe the time has come, and is a bit overdue.  I want to thank my readers for everything, but most especially for your encouragement and your willingness to go out there and fight the good fight. So, that being the case, I've spend the last several weeks looking for bloggers who are fairly active, and best represent something akin to the way I think and what I believe.  I recommend the following blogs for my readers to bookmark and check on regularly. Pick one as your favourite, or pick them all. They are all great..... In His Majesty's Service, THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT

Right Of Return - Southerners Come Home

Obama is not the first Caesar to rule America, and he may not be the last either.
THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT: I have run all the numbers for the 2012 election, and now with a fair degree of confidence, I think I can safely say two things...
  1. Mitt Romney will be the Republican nominee for President of the United States.  Rick Santorum's strategy of stealing enough delegates away from Romney to cause a brokered G.O.P. convention will not work.  His window of opportunity closed yesterday.  He's a lame duck candidate now.
  2. In a head-to-head battle between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama, Mitt Romney loses hands down.  He does not energise the base of the party.  Primary voter turnout numbers are dropping by the week as it becomes more apparent that he will be the nominee.  A socially conservative Romney is viewed as a fraud by the Christian right.  It's over.  Mitt Romney will not (indeed cannot) win.  This means Barack Obama will be re-elected, and we can look forward to another four years of him in the Whitehouse.
So as we prepare for another four years of Obama, the question begs to be asked: "What now?"

The United States is about to go into a period of 'heavy executive oversight' -- i.e. dictatorship.  Fortunately, it looks like this particular dictator -- Obama -- is just a temporary one.  He will hand his seat over to another in Janurary of 2017, but that one will be a dictator too.  This dictatorship period is inevitable and predictable.  Not to worry.  People live under dictatorships all over the world, and some of them live fairly well.  Americans will too.  This however, is the final gasp of the American empire before it crumbles.  When it does crumble, it should happen rather quickly, considering how much federal debt Washington DC has accrued.  The fall of the American empire will be primarily over money, but I would expect a botched foreign war to play into this as well, sucking what little there is left out of the coffers.  We are going the way of the ancient Roman empire.

Within our lifetimes, perhaps sooner than we think, the secession movements in the United States will gain steam and become quite credible.  It is not likely they will move to secede while the American empire is still standing, but as soon as Washington DC loses its grip on things, look for these secession movements to spring into action, taking the lion's share of political attention.   So my question to you is this.  WHEN these secession movements gain steam, and it looks like the former United States is about to be broken up, where do you want to be???  What region of the continent do you think you would do well in?

There are multiple peaceful secession movements across the United States, however the one I am particularly interested in is the American South (Dixieland).  The time has come for all of the sons and daughters of the South, and their descendants, who now live in other parts of the United States, to come home.  When the American empire crumbles, you don't want to be caught in an area where the culture is not your own.  If you're a Southerner by culture, then you know who you are.  You want to be in an area that is ready and eager to rebuild according to the Christian culture and values you hold dear.  Start getting your things in order.  It's time to move back home.

If you're neither a Southerner, nor descended from the South, but you share the values of the Southern people -- Faith, Family and Christian Culture -- then you may want to consider a relocation to the South (Dixie).  Catholicism is growing at a rapid rate in the South.  In fact, it's the only part of the United States where dioceses are building parishes and schools instead of closing them down.  You will also be pleased to know that the Southern states of Dixie are still vigorously fighting gay-marriage, while many states in the North and West have given in to it.  My home state of Missouri has passed a constitutional amendment banning gay-marriage outright.  Many other Southern states have done the same.  This makes the South more hospitable to Catholic Charities while other states in the North and West are causing them to shut down.  Homeschooling is protected in the South as well, encouraging family-based traditional education.  Housing is very affordable and so is Catholic school tuition.  The only advice I would give you is this.  When you come to live here, leave your Northern and Western mentalities behind.  With a little help, you will assimilate into this region easily, and you'll be glad you did. 

St. Joseph, patron of home sellers, pray for us all!
