The Anti-Federalist Society is following the lead of the Alabama Chapter of the League of the South. We are serious about state sovereignty -- so serious that we are encouraging people from all walks of life to think of their state first. In the spirit of Thomas Jefferson, John C. Calhoun and Jefferson Davis, The Anti-Federalist Society is calling on everyone to only display their state flag or the Burnet Flag or the Bonne Blue Flag. The federalists will still fly their flags atop post offices, U.S. courthouses, military bases and other federal facilities, but there is no reason why it should fly over your state Capitol and other state government buildings. Your state is, after all, a sovereign state. Schools, libraries, restaurants and especially homes also are appropriate places for making exclusive use of your state flag, the Burnet Flag or the Bonne Blue Flag. For the last 130 years, the federal government has become a reckless usurper, defining the limits of its own power despite the clear intentions of our Founding Fathers. It's time for the people of the states to reclaim the federal edifice brick by brick, and one way to begin the process is by proudly displaying the symbols of our respective states. The Anti-Federalist Society proudly supports this undertaking with absolutely no apologies to federalists and urges Northerners, Southerners and fellow Anti-Federalists throughout the world to organize similar initiatives of their own. Hawaiians already have forged ahead on this matter. During the five-day centennial commemoration of the overthrow of Hawaii's last Queen, Hawaii Governor John Waihee ordered the U.S. Flag not to be flown over state buildings. Waihee believed not flying the U.S. flag was an "appropriate reminder" of Yankeedom's involvement in the overthrow of Queen Liliuokalani -- "a hostile act, an armed takeover of a legitimate government." Interestingly, there is a large and growing secessionist movement in Hawaii. Given Hawaii's tragic history, that's not surprising.
