Sorry, Professor, but our own professors have already seen this coming. Still, it's nice to see others confirm our views (from Drudge Report):

A leading Russian political analyst has said the economic turmoil in the United States has confirmed his long-held view that the country is heading for collapse, and will divide into separate parts.

Professor Igor Panarin said in an interview with the respected daily IZVESTIA published on Monday: "The dollar is not secured by anything. The country's foreign debt has grown like an avalanche, even though in the early 1980s there was no debt. By 1998, when I first made my prediction, it had exceeded $2 trillion. Now it is more than 11 trillion. This is a pyramid that can only collapse." ...

He also cited the "vulnerable political setup", "lack of unified national laws", and "divisions among the elite, which have become clear in these crisis conditions."

He predicted that the U.S. will break up into six parts - the Pacific coast, with its growing Chinese population; the South, with its Hispanics; Texas, where independence movements are on the rise; the Atlantic coast, with its distinct and separate mentality; five of the poorer central states with their large Native American populations; and the northern states, where the influence from Canada is strong.

Not a bad analysis, but there are a lot more Southerners in the South than Hispanics. The point is, the Empire that replaced the Old Republic cannot hold together.

I thought his comment about the South with Hispanics was referring to the Southwest. The South we know of I think he referred to as the poor five states in the middle with Native American populations...Ok, Mo, etc. I think the South we know and love is to be in Texas, not our Southland. Just my thoughts. Just glad someone brings attention to the imminent break up. I can not wait!

Let's man the oars and speed this along!

I look forward to the coming break-up, too, but let's not kid ourselves -- it will be very painful. Rather than stumbling into Shangri-La, it'll be more like heroin detox. The ultimate goal is necessary and beneficial, but the road will be REAL bumpy at times.

The glue that holds the united States together is money, specifically Federal Reserve Notes. Without a sound currency, the Federals will loose influence and control over the States. There will be no more subsidies, bail-outs, highway funds or welfare payments. The Federals use money, not moral persuasion, to hold their Empire.

With Federal debt rising at an increasing rate, with new hundreds of billions promised to one interest group or another every week, there may soon come a point where the world looses confidence in the dollar. Aggressive dollar selling by foreigners could break the Federal Reserve within days of its onset.

If Fed collapses, the Treasury may try to issue a new currency, or back the old one with new promises. But the price of all imports will soar, and the availability will diminish. Oil, food, consumer goods, anything requiring transport, will suddenly become expensive and difficult to obtain.

People will look to the States and local government for help. But they are already broke and dependent on the Federals. Local government employees will soon be fending for themselves and abandoning their public duties.

This will be the critical moment, right at the edge of chaos, when strong local leadership can hold the people together community by community. Working from the bottom up, and then joining together in cooperative networks, new local organizations can restore order and begin moving toward the future.

Igor Panarin is a Russian propagandist who sees the world through a Russian prism. His understanding of our internal geopolitics is evidently very limited. In Russia, the people have always been individually weak and dependent. Traditional Americans have always been individually strong and self-reliant.

We will build our new American nations from the bottom up, and the South will rise again on its solid original foundation.

Soon, perhaps very soon . . .

It's going to be painful, but the pain of staying in the Empire will be far worse.

Carlton Huffman,

True. Again, just like quitting drugs -- the longer it takes you to quit the habit, the more damage you do, and the harder it will be to quit.

Both the Lew Rockwell and Mises sites have some excellent articles detailing what you're talking about. The Fed is a closed loop that will inevitably burn itself out. As you say, we are likely seeing the beginning of such a burnout.

Obama may just be the best gift the League of the South has ever recieved.

The only thing that worries me is that there's going to be another war to "save the Union." And the thought that the UN will get involved gives me shivers.

Still, bring on the breakup!

I wonder if people realize how big this story is. The weakness of this formerly great country is so hard to overlook, only we Americans could miss it.

We have fallen, and I think you are correct about the reasons why.

Carlton Huffman,

Agreed. As I wrote earlier, voting for Obama is performing assisted suicide for the Empire.

The talk about Obama "governing from the middle" displays total ignorance about the kind of politician Obama is. He's a skilled infiltrator who will implement his big-government agenda using the imagery of moderation, like the good Alinksyite he is. See here, for example.

You are correct to be concerned about that, and it's nothing to take lightly.

Still, it's the blue-helmeted wooses from the &%#*@# UN, for crying out loud. Bring 'em on. Makes me proud to live in the South, where even the women folk pack pistols.

Dan Brennan,

Yes, it is big, bigger than folks want to admit. We've been warning for some years how the power-mad regime in DC is deliberately destroying the foundations of this country with its suicidal immigration policies, and openly treasonous trade practices (NAFTA, for example), and few would listen.

Think we have their attention now?

If the UN, or any other alien military force, ever comes to America as "peace keepers" - a scenario which I believe to be highly unlikely - they will come with insufficient numbers and limited public support in their home countries. They will be risk averse, and they will adopt an enclave strategy, holding key points in a few major cities.

Determined rural resistance, particularly if at all well organised, can frustrate and ultimately defeat whatever force the UN commits.

The world knows this already. That's why I don't think that they will ever make such a mistake.

Of more concern should be the possibility of local pick-up militias organized by remnants of the Empire government - They called them Tories back during the first Revolution. Foreign powers could fund and supply such forces comprised of our friends, neighbors and park rangers who retain an establishment view.

Tories are more a more serious adversary because they are more difficult to identify, and they have families and homes to defend.

This is all likely to be fantastic speculation. Everything will probably work out peacefully in God's own time. But it can't hurt to think about the possibilities.

WOW!!! Does it take a Russian to make this observance? But his definition of seceded areas are lacking common sense. I believe the nation will be split three ways. The South, with all of perceived flaws will be the point of the compass. We should take the reigns of the dissolution wagon. And run right over the stumbling blocks that are laid before us. As other oppressed people see that we can accomplish our mission with an iron will and undeterred spirit. They will crave the freedom that they've missed for so long. I say we should plan League Conventions for Dec 20, 2008 in each State. Drafts from those conventions should be posted and amended if necessary, by the members. Should the States agree on a final draft. It should be formalised and signatures affixed. The Declaration would be served to the State Governors no later than Jan 20, 2009. Serve notice to all the critters in government offices that they are terminated. And will oppress the Citisens no more. DeoVindice.

If a foreign army were to invade you would only have to look to history for a quick glimpse into the future. Look at the Soviets in Afghanistan or The United Nations in Somalia. All you have to do to defeat an occupying army is spill their blood. And in doing so you would sow the seeds of distrust in their hierarchy of power. If our homeland were to be invaded we would have everything to fight for. Our faith, our family,our homes. What would they have to fight for? All They would have to fight for would be what some politician says they should be fighting for.

Nice comment, Anonymous.

Now if we could just get our people to stop embracing the enemy...
