Re: Ken Blackwell, -- Congressman Paul is wrong to suggest that our American War of Independence was an act of secession from the British Empire. -- Why would that be? America seceded from the British Empire for all intents and purposes, so why would you say it wasn't an act of secession? Is the US still part of the British Empire, or is it not? Just what the hell do you think the word "independence" entails? Neo-cons prove time and time again that they indulge in doublespeak just as gleefully as their Progressive brethren. Besides this, just what the hell is it with Statists and the word secession? Do you think it makes sense to join a club you can only leave by shooting your way out?
