Just secede already: The obstructionists arenít going anywhere. Maybe we should
Salon ^ | Oct. 20, 2013 | Chuck Thompson

Posted on 10/20/2013 10:35:52 AM PDT by steelhead_trout

We don't want to live in Ted Cruz's America. He doesn't like ours. Maybe a split really is inevitable — and right

Yes, I know Michele Bachmann is from Minnesota and Steve King is from Iowa, but all this proves is that in the 150 or so years since the Civil War, the vituperative Confederate agenda of anti-Americanism has managed to spread its irresistible redneck poison into benighted pockets across the country. Kind of like Waffle House.

But to deny that the current attack on the federal government isn’t part of the hidebound Confederate agenda is to ignore the people who have engineered it and whose sedition will be rewarded with reelection

Much as Kentucky’s Mitch McConnell did in 2010 when he said that the “single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president,” Meadows’ legislative gambit revealed a man and a party absorbed in a classic state of Southern pique. It’s a pathology sadly worthy of Calhoun and his whole sorry legacy of tantrum-throwing quack parliamentarians who want to continue enjoying all of the benefits that come with being part of the United States without having to make any of the necessary sacrifices or compromises.

Yes, this Chuck Thompson is a flaming moonbat, just dripping with contempt for anyone in Flyover Country, but even a stopped clock is right twice a day.

I really cannot figure out why we are always likened to Confederates. There are lots of minority people in our party and there would be more if the Left wasn’t so intimidating/scathing of the minorities who are Conservative.

We need to convince the leftists that secession is a good idea and also their idea. Nothing is good or right unless they think of it first. So let them think that...

It is an insult that resonates with libs in general and black libs in particular. Reason and rats are mutually exclusive.

We’re the confederates? Well then, let’s try for round 2 and see who comes out on top, shall we?

Chuck is a Democrat, just like the KKK and Bull Connor and that woman who began Planned Parenthood in order to exterminate blacks.

No wonder he wants to secede.

And he’s wrong now. Show him a red/blue map on a county or district scale and he’ll change his mind in a hurry.

To paraphrase Mr. Buckley, I would rather be ruled by a day's customers at a Waffle House than by the staff of Salon.

CW2 Ping.

If Red State American secedes, who will feed the welfare parasites and other EBT ‘rats in the Blue urban zones?

My impulse to these people is to exterminate them all, with no exception for kids, budgies and small kittens.

Ashes to ashes.

If you drop the dripping sarcasm and the open hatred from the article it would have been have pretty decent and a lot shorter.

We are incompatible and if you would go your own way and let us have America as she has always been, then you
on the left can create your GOD-less and socialist entity instead of destroying ours. I refuse to live in your dream world and I will never accept it. Best we divide.

I prefer purge.

The northeast should be purged from America. The trash should be just thrown out

I really cannot figure out why we are always likened to Confederates.

It's an Alinsky tactic, the subtext of which is that TEA Party Conservatives are necessarily racist by associating the movement with the Confederacy, never mind the overlooked fact that the old time secessionists and slave owners were all Democrats, and that it was the Republican Party that ended slavery and then fought the Ku Klux Klan (again all Democrats).

All the Red Counties should be self-sufficient after the Blue Counties leave. Sounds like a great plan!

Texas could survive very nicely alone, but we would have to have a severe border policy with fences and land mines to keep from being over-run by the starving Left and their Dependent Class.

I’m dedicated to BLUE STATES in accordance to the 1980 and 1984 election wins by Ronald Reagan.

The alphabet network TV “news” shows flipped the colors, after that, in order to confuse west coast voters.

RED STATES despite the liberal media effort and propaganda, remain COMMUNIST / LEFTIST / PROGRESSIVE / SOCIALIST !
