What the hell is wrong with Ron Paul, and Governor Perry of Texas when they start talking super crazy about maybe, you know, Texas should secede from the Union (mostly because they don’t like what Obama is doing).
Look, as we all know, elections have consequences. The major consequence of the last election cycle being that republicans got run out of office at all levels, and we, being the democrats, won. We get to run things for awhile, and if the “people” are so disenchanted with what Obama and the congressional democrats are doing (polls indicate that the American people as a whole are approving of what has been happening so far), then guess what? We’ll have a repeat of what happened in 1994 when the republicans rode roughshod over democrats in the mid terms (sort of like how democrats rode roughshod over republicans in 2006, and 2008).
Some folks, like Dr. Paul, need to pull their heads out of their asses. Talking about seceding from the United States is treason pure and simple. The examples he uses are apples to oranges as well.
We’re not even 100 days into Obama’s first term (there will be a second, you wait), and we’ve got Texas talking about seceding. What the fuck is going on down there? Are your state leaders gone insane?by
