They’re not “sunshine patriots”. They’re patriots of the Republic of Texas.
Calling the “sunshine patriots” is like calling the Founders “secessionist traitors to England who should have worked within the system.”
The author of this ridiculously abbreviated piece is all wet if he calls them ‘Sunshine Patriots”, and thinks they’re cutting and running.The people that are cutting and running in the wake of this election are those that are still fretting about “what went wrong” and how we really have to think about Hispanic outreach seriously, etc. etc.,and how to avoid making the same mistakes “next time”. Will there BE
a next time? is what this petition implicitly asks.
Whatever anyone may think of it, this
is the ONLY provocative thing I’ve seen to fully assess what one group believes the real options are, and act on them in a formal and dignified way.
“Calling the[m] sunshine patriots is like calling the Founders secessionist traitors to England who should have worked within the system.
Agreed. The system has been corrupted by uncontrolled immigration and voters voting themselves money. The petition is an acknowledgement that Texas has nothing culturally or politically in common with NY & California.
