Most Likely to Secede? by Jerry Hinkle
First it was polarization, now it is secession that seems to be the latest media buzzword. The fact is that there is usually a few people who use the S word when an election doesn't go the way he or she may have hoped. For some reason it's becoming a big news story this year. I must admit that I was slightly curious as to why people in 47 states want to secede. It doesn't seems possible, yet the media tells us that it is happening.
I have no idea if any of you Readers are having the notion of separating yourself from the Union, but if you do have such notions I have just one thing to say: DON'T DO IT! This country needs you, And whether you know it or not, you need the country. Secession was tried 150 years ago, and it didn't work.
The American body politic is like the body of Christ, all of the parts are needed. As in the body of Christ, the eye can not say to the feet, "I don't need you" Neither can the right hand of the American body politic say the same thing to the left. The right hand and the left can do wonderful things when the work together.
The right foot and the left need each other to move the body ahead. Right now the left foot is leading the right, but in 4 years, that could change and the right foot may lead for a while. It's not quite the crisis situation you may think it is. I for one refuse to give up on this country. I hope you won't either! Our best days could still be ahead! God be with you and do the best you can!
