“When in the course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another…
a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.”
—The Declaration of Independence
Increasingly, I have no fealty to the U.S. government.
This has nothing to do with George Bush, bogeyman of the Left, the war in Iraq, or Halliburton, and everything to do with the reasonable assessment that the United States is too big for its own good.
Too big in its 300 million people to be represented by 550 mostly millionaire men
in a far-off swamp called Washington, D.C.
I therefore have stopped calling myself a U.S. citizen.
