“If you are younger than a Boomer, you have spent much of your life under only one pillar of the Great Compromise. Although we lost home rule in 1965, we were able to keep our identity. The reasoning for this was largely two-fold, the destruction of Southern identity was always going to be more difficult than ending home rule. The fact that they needed us to fight their wars further protected the second pillar of the Great Compromise. But now, those days are over, they really don’t think they need the Southern janissaries anymore.
Thankfully, they appear to have gotten their wish. Southerners no longer have a desire to fight for a nation that hates them. The Empire is about to learn the hard way, in a war with China or Russia, why Dixie is the backbone of the American military.
They are about to learn why they need us, and we are about to learn why we don’t need them.”
