creating a new federation of like-minded counties
HOME RULE IS A GOD-GIVEN RIGHT.
HOME RULE IS A GOD-GIVEN RIGHT.
FLORIDA SECEDE, a grassroots political organization based in Port Charlotte Florida at their March 25, 2021 membership meeting, voted to put all our efforts individually and as a group behind the national organization Convention of States Action. Following as we have the creed "hope for the best, plan for the worse". Under Article V of our Constitution, We the People have this one remaining tool in the Republic's toolbox created by our Founders for such a time as this. The daily, weekly and monthly actions of our members and our grassroot group will go to get as many signatures on petitions, educate our neighbors about this important tool and then bring the Convention into being.

We are just everyday people trying to live our lives in the Southwest Florida County of Charlotte. On this, our county's centennial year, we find ourselves non-violent political revolutionaries. We no longer recognize our nation. We personally, and our freedoms and rights, are under continual attack. We have identified the enemies and we now work to remove them from our midst. At present, there is no central organization or clearinghouse for Florida or Southern secession. We are stepping forward to facilitate education, organization and communication as this revolution is but in its infancy here in the South and elsewhere.
You hear calls for "Civil War", war is not the answer nor violence. The S word sends shocks as well, so many believing the lie that secession is illegal. Then there are those using the S word, when secession is but the process. What we are dedicated to is creating with the majority of culturally connected counties, a new Federation of Southern Counties. Wikipedia has published an entire list of County Secession Proposal in U.S. History and its quite extensive: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_U.S._county_secession_proposals
Our organization is made up of people who wish to build,, NOT TEAR DOWN. We agree with Southern author James R. Kennedy's claim that we already at war as Southerners ,at war with the status quo. That status quo of usual suspects, needs also to include the ranks of labeled Republicans and Conservatives, as well as the Far Left pushing a Civil War. To this end, we dedicate our efforts at renewal and completion. The renewal of the promise that the South deliver the nation under God, The completion being a democratic Republic that completes the aspirations of our Founding Fathers in full. We hope that you will pray on this and then share with your family, friends and neighbors, to see if this is the right course of action going forward.
We view secession as divorce and as such is a non-violent solution to the huge political and cultural divide that now exists in our previous attempt at a Democratic Republic.
We honor our revolutionary forefathers by reinstituting the "Committees of Correspondence", that were vital to their organization and eventual success in seceding from the tyrannical enemy. Communication between Southern Secessionist in 2021 is critical. Yet it is amazing how many revolutionaries communicate via Facebook and You-Tube and rely on Google, all the enemies who work against us and already censor us before 1/20/21. We need to return to emails, snail mails and pray that alternative social media sites succeed.
Committees of Correspondence we believe, will be vital laboratories for shared successes and failures for Southern secessionists in 2021. There will be "best practices" that will assist all the groups working to nullify and then create self-governance for their county. We are in this together. While people are finally awakening to the reality at hand, there remains the critical need to harness and ORGANIZE that wakening into social and political action. We believe a network of cooperative committees can accomplish that task.
If you have questions or need information, and if you would like to network with others in your county and state volunteering your talents email:
We call on our fellow southerners to stand together to create a sanctuary, to fulfill the promise for a nation under God that assures the rights of the unborn and for its citizens to bear arms. After all, the majority of southern people still hold to these beliefs, but for how long? We call on our fellow southerners to find ways to organize and fight back, knowing that our cause is both moral and timeless.
The human need for sanctuary, a safe place, a haven dictates that we exercise our human right to self-governance and home rule. Author of a recent book on secession, F.H. Buckley states the matter simply:
"If millions of people in one section of the country are told that they’re presumptively evil, and that the presumption really can’t be rebutted, they’re going to wonder if they belong somewhere else.”
Short of a successful run-away Constitutional Convention by Southern States, we see the "somewhere else" in the latent potential in our Southern Counties. The bigness of the "Federal Empire" will be remedied by the power being closer to the people. That directs us therefore to explore a confederation of counties throughout the South. Less government and more reliance on God is the solution. For the time being, many Southerners still believe
what Wendell Berry once wrote:
" Let tomorrow come tomorrow. Not by your will is the house carried through the night."
People of faith have been the targets for some time now. We are looking to these moral warriors to set this movement of like-minded counties to establish the needed sanctuaries, and to forge a new union, that will fulfill the original promise as designed by our nation's founders. "One Nation Under God".
Disunionism (or secession, applied to that historical point of critical mass in abusive centralized power) is the political philosophy most consistent with Paul’s prayer for civil magistrates in 1 Timothy 2:1-2 and with Peter’s call to suffer well in 1 Peter 4:12-19. Disunionism actually puts one’s hands and feet to those prayers to “live a peaceful and quiet life” (1 Tim. 2:3), and to not meet force because one is “a meddler” (1 Pet. 4:15). Disunionism says, “I am not your property, and neither are you my property.” It says it as people groups and not merely as individuals. It refuses to seek legal sanction to commit violence against others, and so to provoke their wrath in turn. A Christian Disunionist actually means it when he says that temporal political gains are not the kingdom of God.
The Disunionist lives by the maxim that good fences make good neighbors, and he insists on being that good neighbor, not by coercion, but by voluntary virtue: the only virtue that is worthy of the name. A Disunionist alone, of all Christians with a public philosophy, avoids the opposite idols of spiritual-virtue-signaling pietism on the one hand, and kingdom-now-without-its-King zealotry on the other. While all other views clamor for competing brands of centralizing power, the disunionist accepts that the best tendencies of government in this age are occasional, yet courageous, chops at the serpent from growing too large. He alone is neither utopian nor fatalist. But he also recognizes that these extremes are seductive to the vast majority, so that in times of comfort, he must fly solo and have his view misconstrued and positively slandered.
Matt Marino, Secession Now
Early in 2020 a book entitled American Secession, written far before the election of 2020 and the actions of the political party in power, big tech, the oligarths and the media, F.H. Buckley dedicated six entire chapters to the most significant reasons for Americans to secede in the 21st Century. These six aspects of our nation's "bigness" have the power to bring the majority of Americans from the classical liberalist to the staunch conservatives working to rebuild, this time much smaller:
Bigness and Badness
Bigness and Happiness
Bigness and Corruption
Bigness and the Military
Bigness and Freedom
Bigness and Wealth
Now that any American can easily find and purchase a copy of this important book for $10. or less, Florida Secede encourages you to educate yourself regarding the six detrimental aspects for a growing nation on our freedoms, liberties, safety, overall quality of life and happiness.
We encourage all county groups to organize and then draft a Declaration of Independence
"Red State Provisional governments will support and encourage American-values voters residing in red Counties within Blue States to establish American- values sanctuary counties,"
James R. Kennedy, 2020
" A fundamental change in the current system of political rule in America will never occur if we continue to engage in traditional political campaigns - business-as-usual politics. The current system is not only corrupt, but it is also corrupting."
James R. Kennedy, 2020
""We the people"in Red States - Red Counties who hold traditional American values are, in fact a stateless people. We have no government to protect and promote our values and interests. If freedom is to survive, "we the people need to create America's original, Constitutionally limited Republic of Socereign States or create a nation of our own."
James R. Kennedy, 2020
