Unfortunately we here in the upper midwest (MN- Al Franken, Crazy Eyes Mark Dayton, WI-lesbian senator Tammy Baldwin, crazy unions, IL - Dirty Dick Durbin, Rahm Emanuel, Jesse Jackson) are but a few of the deranged liberal crazies in these states. We've got the same 50% deranged liberals vs 50% of nominally good conservative patriots. We would have a battle on our hands (that's ok, so be it) if or when we would ever try to divorce or secede from the ferociously evil socialist-fascist-communisty lefties.
