From Pat Buchanan.org
''While no one takes this movement as seriously as men took secession
in 1861, the sentiments behind it ought not to be minimized. For they
bespeak a bristling hostility to the federal government and a dislike
bordering on detestation of some Americans for other Americans, as deep
as it was on the day Beauregard’s guns fired on Fort Sumter.
Our Pledge of Allegiance still speaks of “one nation under God,
indivisible,” but that is far from the reality in the America of 2012.''
