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

Secession Amendment

The Betsy Ross Flag
1776
THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT: The following text was forwarded to me today by a group of well-known and influential businessmen in my local region. For obvious reasons they wish to remain anonymous, and because of that this text has been forwarded to this anonymous blogger for Internet publication. I have been asked to relay this to my readers, and in turn, request that the text be copied, in its entirety, and forwarded unaltered to as many people as possible, by all electronic means available: email, forums, blogs, newsgroups, etc. I am now requesting that you, my readers, examine the text below, and forward it as far and wide as you possibly can...
On this fourth day of July, in the year of our Lord, two-thousand and twelve, this call goes forward to reclaim the liberty that was lost to a once free people. We call upon the people of the United States to pressure their elected representatives, both at the federal and state level, to introduce for ratification by the states, a simple amendment to the United States constitution, either by an act of congress or by constitutional convention. The amendment shall read as follows: "The right of the people in a state, or group of states, to secede from the union of the United States, shall not be infringed, and secession shall be determined by popular vote of the people within said state, or group of states.  The states shall retain exclusive power to enforce this article."

The right of secession is what the United States of America was founded upon two-hundred and thirty-six years ago today, when our founding fathers signed the Declaration of Independence. It is a right still supported by the majority of Americans, and it is a right that should be recognised by the United States constitution. Ironically, the constitution currently makes no mention of this right, and that is an oversight we seek to correct. For free men are not truly free unless they have the right to leave. We believe when this right is duly recognised and protected by the constitution of the United States, then and only then, will the federal government truly respect Americans in their other rights, and once again, fiscal responsibility and political sanity may return to our people. Please join us in calling upon our elected representatives, both at the state and federal level, to protect the rights of Americans.  May God bless the United States of America!
