According to the article, this is the first time since the Civil War that a secessionist party in the US has fielded a whole slate of candidates for state office.
'Bout damn time!
While their chances are not the best, if more and more candidates wave the secessionist banner, perhaps the big guys being wined and dined in Washington finally realize that people are PISSED OFF!
Not angry, not annoyed, not peeved or any other nice sounding term.
WE, THE PEOPLE, ARE PISSED OFF!!!
Why they can't understand this is beyond me. The signs are all around them. Check web sites, check blogs, check newspapers, check political rallies, tea parties, check news shows, talk to any man or woman on the street. When Joe Wilson yelled "You Lie" at
Obama during that speech, that was not just Joe Wilson yelling! That was your constituents, Ladies and Gentlemen of The House and The Senate.We are pissed at each and every one of you--just about. There are few that are not shills for The Federal Reserve, Giant Banking Corporations, etc. There are a few of you that are not in the hip pocket of some special interest group ...there are a few of you that do not go on junkets to the Caribbean or "special trade meetings" to Paris paid for by some lobbyist. To you few, the time for you to stand up and speak up is here. Don't let another week go by, hell, don't let another MINUTE go by before you let WE, THE PEOPLE know where you stand and where your loyalties lie.
November elections will be here before you know it. Never has the cry of "Throw the bastards out!" resonated so strongly with WE, THE PEOPLE. You will be out of a job unless you do your sworn duties.We WILL fire you. Yes, I said it. FIRE YOU. Your services no longer needed, take your pink slip and hit the door. Because you, as the elected representitive of WE, THE PEOPLE, have forgotten something that should be foremost in your mind.
WE, THE PEOPLE, ARE YOUR EMPLOYERS!!!
If you do not do the job in a manner that is conducive to OUR interests, we have every right to fire you and we will!
Current list for Firing includes:
Harry Reid (unless he crawls back under his rock before the election)
Charles RangelBarbara Mikulski
and so on and so forth...
Kick the bastards out. Make them get a REAL job for a change. Put people in office that hear and HEED the voices of their constituents. Elect representatives that will shout and yell and scream and debate and argue and make sure that the voices of WE, THE PEOPLE, are heard!
Otherwise, I suspect that a lot more state houses are going to get high populations of secessionists--with the approval of their state populations!
