The Louisiana Social Pledge

We pledge our allegiance to Louisiana. We will embrace what makes us and our state unique. Louisiana will be recognized as a leader and innovator of the New South. Many great leaders of the future will come from this state. And we will show both the media and politicians that we are smarter than them. We will no longer have our resources exhausted and our people used and left behind. We will work hard and play hard. We will protect each other. We will support each other. We pledge that we will do whatever we can to get these things in motion right now. We will no longer wait for a path to be cleared for us. We will clear the path ourselves. And we ain’t giving up easily. We will socialize in the real world just as well as we do on the internet…in hopes to organize ourselves effectively.

The Last Battle (With Myself) (Louis Toliver Jr- Swartz, LA)

If I win, you win. We move forward
And this story will end with progress
If I lose, you lose. We fall backward
And this story will end with failure.

I am an enemy to myself because I am weak
On the surface and I can feel my judgment
I am a friend to myself because I have strength
Down to my core and I can feel my power

But I’ve decided the conflict ends
Both sides and all parts have combined to win
To make the perfect cultural ally
And I’ve decided the war against unjust begins
