Latest WI GOP Job Strategy: Secession

Nothing encourages young entrepreneurs and other stable, reasonable, creative people to stay in your state, or move in, put down roots and bring in cash than the party in power whistling Dixie.

In 2014.

Good work, Walkerites and the Wisconsin Republican Party.

Maybe Bobby Jindal should make a road trip here.

You know what is so sad about this.

Think of all the Wisconsin lives lost, during the Civil War, fighting for the Federal Government and its ideals.

They should be turning in their graves.

So, we become our own country? Or 'annex' the UP and see if the socialists in Canada will have us?
How might this well-thought-out option work, should the Republicans in power ever choose to use it?
If Mary Burke isn't reminding everyone that Scott Walker by his own proud admission is the original Tea Party in WI, she doesn't deserve to be Gov.

All those who vote in favor of secession should be handcuffed, lined up and marched directly to stand trial for sedition. All elected officials who even participate in the discussion or vote should be tried for sedition also, and be stripped of their official status as representatives of the state of Wisconsin and forced to pay reparations of salary, benefits and per diems to the people of Wisconsin. That seems fair.

Anon 12:53, Sue, Max B. …. Well said.

We need to purge these crazies… my two cents worth.

"Another controversial resolution criticizes two Republicans: state Sen. Luther Olsen of Ripon and Rep. Steve Kestell of Elkhart Lake. It urges them to recuse themselves from all matters in which they have a conflict of interest or are acting contrary to the party platform."

That sounds odd. Would when to recuse be determined by a kind of party politburo? Sounds more like a bunch of commies and less like small r republicans to me.

Do you think the Republicans will ask Supreme Court Justice David Prosser to recuse himself from John Doe Deux?

We are the Tea Party movement. Our goals:

1. Take back the country, because we refuse to be associated with it so long as that black, foreign-born, socialist Muslim is living in the White House.

2. Return to the values and tenets of our Founding Fathers. If they wanted Civil Rights Acts in America, why did so many own slaves? If they believed that women and ethnic minorities should be able to vote, then why didn't they include these rights in their final draft of the U.S. Constitution?

3. Destroy "ObamaCare", because the government has no business regulating the private health care insurance industry. And because the government has no right to kill grandma. That's the job of your HMO or PPO. And by the way, keep your filthy hands off my Medicare coverage!

4. Create a smaller government, because the feds have no business telling Americans what do to ... unless you're gay, or you need an abortion, or you wish to obtain contraceptives.

5. Demonstrate our support for the health and well-being of women … by greatly reducing affordable access to breast cancer screenings and other preventative health care resources, … by defining rape and any ensuing pregnancy as an "act of God", … by defunding programs dealing with domestic violence against women, … and by requiring women to "spread them" and provide a womb with a view for Uncle Sam.

6. Deny the impact of human activity on climate change. Because everyone knows that if global warming is real, it's simply "God's will".

7. Make Christianity the official religion and English the official language of the United States, because native English-speaking, Christian folks are the only truly patriotic Americans.

8. Destroy labor unions, because besides the 40-hour work week, paid vacation time, workers' compensation, sick days, overtime pay, regulations regarding workplace health and safety conditions, health benefits, pension plans, etc. … what have they ever done for the typical American wage earner?

9. Stop spending so much money! Except when we need to invade another country that pisses us off. Or if it's done to support programs and policies that help to further our own political agendas.

10. Reduce the deficit ... at the same time that we're gonna give kickbacks to the lobbyists and huge tax breaks to all of those corporations and ultra-wealthy individuals that helped to finance our little "party".

11. Embrace an economic scorched earth policy approach to reducing the national debt. Because if Congress refuses to eliminate Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security, we'll do everything in our power to destroy the economic viability of the nation. Negotiation and compromise is not in our repertoire -- It's our way or the highway.

12. To demonstrate our commitment to our sacred U.S. Constitution, we strive to eliminate those Amendments that conflict with our ideology and simply ignore other sections that we find inconvenient to honor.

13. To demonstrate our patriotic love for this nation, we propose to secede from the Union.

14. And if you won't let us attain our goals by electing us to office ... well, we can always resort to "Second Amendment remedies".

Any questions?
