Declaration of Expulsion: A Modest Proposal
It's Time to Reconfigure the United States
by Mike Thompson
Posted Nov 3, 2004
[From the author: This is an essay I've been working on for the past
several weeks, updated moments ago with what appears to be Bush's final
number of victory states (31) once the nonsense of provisional votes in
Ohio is overcome.
As an admitted "modest proposal" (a la Swift's satiric story of the
same name), it is nevertheless serious in pointing out the cancer that
continues to threaten our body politic.]
[[Yes, Mike, that belief that somehow the US would be better if the
atheists, women, blacks, and everyone else who doesn't worship your
Tony Soprano version of God would somehow vanish.]]
Branded unconstitutional by President Abraham Lincoln, the South's
secession from the American Union ultimately sparked "The Civil War" (a
name that was rejected by Southerners, who correctly called it "The War
Between the States," for the South never sought to 1] seize the central
government or 2] rule the other side, two requisites for a civil war).
No state may leave the Union without the other states' approval,
according to Lincoln's doctrine--an assertion that ignores the
Declaration of Independence, which was the vital basis for all 13
American colonies' unilateral secession from the British Union eight
decades earlier. Lincoln's grotesque legal argument also disregards a
state's inherent right of secession which many scholars believe is
found in the Ninth and Tenth Amendments to the U.S. Constitution.
Meantime, America has become just as divided as it was a century and a
half ago, when it writhed in Brother-vs.-Brother War. Instead of wedge
issues like slavery, federal subsidies for regional business, and high
tariffs, society today is sundered by profound, insoluble Culture War
conflicts (such as abortion and gay marriage), and debate about our
role abroad (shall we remain the world's leader, or become an
unprincipled chump for the cabal of globalist sybarites who play
endless word-games inside the United Nations and European Union
For many decades, conservative citizens and like-minded political
leaders (starting with President Calvin Coolidge) have been denigrated
by the vilest of lies and characterizations from hordes of liberals who
now won't even admit that they are liberals--because the word connotes
such moral stink and political silliness. As a class, liberals no
longer are merely the vigorous opponents of the Right; they are
spiteful enemies of civilization's core decency and traditions.
[[I didn't know voter intimidation, torture, and lying to congress were
part of civilization's core traditions. I thought they were regrettable
aspects of human evolution.]]
Defamation, never envisioned by our Founding Fathers as being
protected by the First Amendment, flourishes and passes today for
acceptable political discourse. Movies, magazines, newspapers, radio/TV
programs, plays, concerts, public schools, colleges, and most other
public vehicles openly traffic in slander and libel. Hollywood
salivated over the idea of placing another golden Oscar into Michael
Moore'sfat hands, for his Fahrenheit 9/11 jeremiad, the most bogus,
deceitful film documentary since Herr Hitler and Herr Goebbels gave
propaganda a bad name.
When they tire of showering conservative victims with ideological mud,
liberals promote the only other subjects with which they feel
conversationally comfortable: Obscenity and sexual perversion. It's as
if the genes of liberals have rendered them immune to all forms of
As a final insult, liberal lawyers and judges have become locusts of
the Left, conspiring to destroy democracy itself by excreting statutes
and courtroom tactics that fertilize electoral fraud and sprout fields
of vandals who will cast undeserved and copious ballots on Election
The truth is, America is not just broken--it is becoming irreparable.
If you believe that recent years of uncivil behavior are burdensome,
imagine the likelihood of a future in which all bizarre acts are the
norm, and a government-booted foot stands permanently on your face.
That is why the unthinkable must become thinkable. If the so-called
"Red States" (those that voted for George W. Bush) cannot be respected
or at least tolerated by the "Blue States" (those that voted for Al
Gore and John Kerry), then the most disparate of them must live
apart--not by secession of the former (a majority), but by expulsion of
the latter. Here is how to do it.
Having been amended only 17 times since 10 vital amendments (the Bill
of Rights) were added at the republic's inception, the U.S.
Constitution is not easily changed, primarily because so many states
(75%, now 38 of 50) must agree. Yet, there are 38 states today that may
be inclined to adopt, let us call it, a "Declaration of Expulsion,"
that is, a specific constitutional amendment to kick out the
systemically troublesome states and those trending rapidly toward
anti-American, if not outright subversive, behavior. The 12 states that
must go: California, Illinois, New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts,
Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Maryland, and
Delaware. Only the remaining 38 states would retain the name, "United
States of America." The 12 expelled mobs could call themselves the
"Dirty Dozen," or individually keep their identity and go their
separate ways, probably straight to Hell.
A difficult-to-pass constitutional amendment, however, is not
necessary. There is an equally lawful route that mercifully would be
both easier and faster. Inasmuch as Article IV, Section 3 of the
Constitution specifies that "New States may be admitted by the Congress
into this Union," it is reasonable that the same congressional majority
may expel a state from the Union. Is there, after all, any human
organization in existence (including a family or law firm) that may not
disown, disinherit, ostracize, alienate or expel diabolical members?
Whether the nation is purged of these 12 states via the Constitution or
statute, the process of elimination must begin now, for the need of
societal detoxification has waxed so overwhelmingly clear.
Examine the "Mostly Mainstream 38" and "Fringe 12." Of the 50 states,
Bush won 30 in the 2000 presidential election against Gore, and 31 in
2004 against Kerry. More dramatic is the huge disparity among counties.
Of 3,112 counties nationwide, Bush in 2000, for example, won 2,434, a
crushing 78% majority. (In the counties composing "Bush USA" live
approximately 150 million persons; in the 678 of "Gore/Kerry USA," 140
million.) Gore/Kerry denizens are concentrated in the metropolises of
the East and West Coasts and those big cities on the Great Lakes or
Mississippi River. Other significant pockets of ultraliberal extremists
may be found in intellectually incestuous college towns and
pro-big-government state capitals, along the estranged and overwhelmed
Mexican border, and in Dixie's welfare-addicted Cotton Belt.
The demographics revealed by the two most recent presidential
elections are radically different and have resulted in "Two Americas"
(but not the simplistic "Two Americas" [one rich, one poor] envisioned
by Kerry'sMarxist-tongued running mate, John Edwards):
* BUSH USA is predominantly white; devoutly Christian (mostly
Protestant); openly, vigorously heterosexual; an open land of
single-family homes and ranches; economically sound (except for a few
farms), but not drunk with cyberworld business development, and mainly
English-speaking, with a predilection for respectfully uttering "yes,
ma'am" and "yes, sir."
* GORE/KERRY USA is ethnically diverse; multi-religious, irreligious
or nastily antireligious; more sexually liberated (if not in actual
practice, certainly in attitude); awash with condo canyons and other
high-end real estate bordered by sprawling, squalid public housing or
neglected private homes, decidedly short of middle-class
neighborhoods; both high tech and oddly primitive in its commerce;
very artsy, and Babelesque, with abnormally loud speakers. Bush USA
also is far safer, its murder rate being about 16% of the homicidal
binge that plagues Gore/Kerry USA--2.1 per 100,000 residents, compared
with 13.2 per 100,000 (from a study by Professor Joseph Olson, Hamline
University School of Law, St. Paul, Minnesota).
A downsized, post-expulsion United States still would be
geographically big enough (and personally generous enough) to welcome
millions of authentic refugees from the ousted former states, real
Americans who crave lower taxes, smaller government, safer
neighborhoods, more secure borders, greater moral leadership, and all
the other aspects of a markedly better society-- one that spawns
harmony, not cacophony; excellence, not dependence; justice, not
histrionics; education, not brainwashing; enterprise, not welfare, and
Godliness, not devilishness. As for the dozen ex-American states, they
could always petition the UN and EU for foreign aid. Moreover, with any
good luck (or bon chance), socialist Canada would annex our jettisoned
Still Relevant After All These Years
Language of the 1776 Declaration of Independence that rings true today
When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one
people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with
another . . .
Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from
the consent of the governed, that whenever any Form of Government
becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to
alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its
foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form,
as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness
. . .
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established
should not be changed for light and transient causes . . . but when a
long train of abuses . . . evinces a design to reduce them [the
people] under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty,
to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their

also rings true:
Sometimes I think this country would be better off if we could just
