Renee and I were interviewed in Montgomery this afternoon for an HBO documentary about Alabama’s immigration law, HB 56.
I spent an hour talking with the host about how federal judges and left-leaning special interest groups had gutted the law. I also said on camera that secession was the only way we would ever be allowed to govern ourselves again. There’s no reason to maintain the fiction of a state government that doesn’t have any real power. As Robert Barnwell Rhett once said, “It is a mere County, or District of a single consolidated despotism.”
Imagine my surprise when I get home and discover that another federal judge in Texas appointed by the same consolidated despotism had struck down that state’s gay marriage law while I was talking about that very issue – the non-existence of “self-government” in the US – just an hour before.
Note: The documentary is supposed to air in late April or early May.
