Oh, my gosh...this is fascinating. Did you hear about the people who have petitioned the government to secede from the United States? Apparently people have done this for the last couple of elections--when Bush was elected in 2004 and when Obama was elected for the first time.
According to the article from Yahoo, it's mostly symbolic, but it just cracks me up for some reason.
Here's what Peter Morrison, treasurer of the Hardin County (Texas) Republican Party wrote:
"We must contest every single inch of ground and delay the baby-murdering, tax-raising socialists at every opportunity. But in due time, the maggots will have eaten every morsel of flesh off of the rotting corpse of the Republic, and therein lies our opportunity... Why should Vermont and Texas live under the same government? Let each go her own way in peace, sign a free trade agreement among the states and we can avoid this gut-wrenching spectacle every four years."Good heavens! This man is a tad bit irate. I should send him a box of Celestial Seasonings Tension Tamer tea. It sounds like he could use some of it infused right into his vein.
