This latest brouhaha over the Confederate flag has made me realize one thing: I am a Confederate first, and an American second. I am a Confederate first, and a conservative third. I am not even sure I am a Republican anymore.
At least the increasingly virulent attacks on the symbols of my nation have clarified that for me. I now have a better idea of who I am. And who I am not.
The Confederate flag is my flag. The United States flag is not. I have psychologically seceded from the Union.
Northerners hate our guts. We hate their guts. You want no part of us. We want no part of you. Let us separate, as we should have done back in 1861.
