The purpose of this blog is fairly straight forward and can be found on the right-hand sidebar. In 2004 a project website called the SouthernNationalist sought to articulate many of the issues surrounding the history of the struggle to retain states' rights within our republic. Such a project was too exclusive, for if we are to truly believe in the principle of states' rights then we should also believe that it is not merely a southern ideology.
Local autonomy, and the right of our individual states to govern in ways that reflect the sentiment of the local people is the truest form of practical representative democracy. Our republic was founded on this principle, somewhere along the way we lost our path.
Any blogger, regardless of political persuasion is encouraged to join us. After all the beauty of states' rights is that we can agree to disagree among our various states and still retain unity on important matters to true national interest. If you are interested in joining link to the alliance page and drop us an email to let us know you are out there and with us. (And don't be afraid of the domain name, you don't have to be advocate the legality or practicality of secession to support states' rights).
In the future we will host a very occasional Carnival of States' Rightist, with topic centering on contemporary problems and how these problems might better be solved through state rather than federal involvement.
Also, if you are just stopping by, please read and sign the Declaration of States' Rights
