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 Divided United (Tara McFarlin-Jena, LA)

The Civil War is dead 
Economic disunion lives 
It's not black nor white 
What keeps us apart is US
The divided United States
Where are the people? 
Where is the power? 
When are we going to be WE?
Why are WE in the way of US? 
How will trust come again? 
Or did it ever?
