The South shall rise again!
Texas Gov. Rick Perry today talked of his state seceding from the United States. From the story,
Perry told reporters following his speech that Texans might get so frustrated with the government they would want to succeed from the union.
. . . Perry has criticized federal bailouts and has refused $555 million in unemployment money because of strings attached. He has in recent days asserted states’ rights under the 10th Amendment and denounced Washington for overstepping authority.
. . . And conservative radio commentator Rick Green declared, “We are firing the first shots of the 2nd American revolution right here in Texas.”
Some in the crowd, which included libertarians and other third-party advocates, said even Perry was not conservative enough.
This is pretty serious stuff here, advocating treason, another civil war and possibly encouraging another Timothy McVeigh.
