it is South Carolina in the War Between the States firing at the federals - Fort Sumter - States Rights. Note to self other Congress Critters at the Federal level are afraid of Odumbo The Good Ole Boys Club prevails in DC. End the Good Ole Boys Club
One wonders that this include those voting Obamacare into law? If so I can’t wait until Jim Clyburn is behind bars.
That is probably why they now may swear or affirm.
