Crazy, whacky behavior by Republicans in government continue, making it that almost daily there is some outrageous statement or action to report! 🙁
Congressman Zach Wamp of Tennessee, running for the GOP nomination for Governor of his state, suggested that if the elections of 2010 and 2012 did not lead to a change of attitude on the part of the national government, then it would be necessary for Tennessee to promote secession from the Union! 🙁
So, in other words, 150 years after the Civil War began, we might face a Southern state again trying to break its bonds with the Union, even though that was supposedly settled by the blood of two thirds of a million American soldiers from 1861-1865! How irresponsible and divisive a statement for Congressman Wamp to make, and one he should be ashamed of! 🙁
Meanwhile, former Colorado Congressman Tom Tancredo, a leading nativist and extremist firebrand, is complicating the Governorship primary in the Republican Party by suggesting he will run as an independent. But beyond that, he has suggested that Barack Obama should be impeached! 🙁 Mr. Tancredo, on what basis do you utter such a ridiculous statement? 🙁
Tancredo is a lunatic, and Wamp is not far behind! When, oh when, will the GOP decide that remaining silent, and being connected to whacko statements such as these two characters have uttered, is hurting the long term future of the party of Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, Eisenhower, and yes, even Ronald Reagan? 🙁
Add to the above conservative activist Phyllis Schlafly who has condemned single women for voting Democratic in large percentages, and refusing to keep their marriage vows in large numbers! Of course, Schlafly fails to understand that many women do not wish to tolerate abuse by their husbands in unhappy marriages, and many women are less willing to give up their careers and futures and tie themselves to men who they feel are not worthy! But remember that Schlafly still enunciates the views of the Christian Coalition which helped to bring Ronald Reagan to power in 1980! Thank goodness that Reagan passed her by and selected Sandra Day O’Connor as the first female on the Supreme Court! 🙁
Continued involvement by Wamp, Tancredo , and Schlafly only undermines the future of the GOP, and is a godsend to the Democratic Party!
