And yet it's we dirty fucking liberal hippies who are what ails American unity . . . . sigh . . .
A former aide to President Ronald Reagan is calling for southern states to secede from the union and form a new conservative nation called "Reagan" where citizens wouldn't be forced to compromise on "traditional values" like marriage.
Right Wing Watch on Wednesday flagged conservative author Douglas MacKinnon's interview with evangelical radio host Janet Mefferd, in which he hocked his new book, "The Secessionist States of America: The Blueprint for Creating a Traditional Values County … Now." Cautioning that all his secession talk was purely "academic," MacKinnon suggested that South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida break away from the United States and form a new republic named "Reagan."
"You have to remember that all 11 states from the South, including ultimately Texas, seceded legally," MacKinnon told Mefferd. "They left the union peacefully, they left the union legally, and then President Lincoln … part of the problem there was that the North realized very quickly that it could not survive economically without the power of the South."
And even more hilariously, "they left the union peacefully," -- just wow! When one's definition of the word peaceful translates to 365,000 corpses of your fellow citizens littering battlefields all over your country in a 4 year civil war, that is about as insanely delusional as one can get.
Make no mistake as well - that when these conservative secessionists talk about "traditional values," they truly are referring to their very own tradition of choosing their extremist tribal values over the best interests of the nation on whole.
Oh - and btw - can we make one thing unquestioningly clear right here and now? Please take note of who it is in this country that is incessantly calling for the dissolution of our United States of America for the sole reason that they cannot convince a majority of voters to support their ideological and political ambitions. Got news for you dear readers, the people pining to break up and destroy our union -- it ain't the flower power people.
The sooner more folks acknowledge that bit of reality, the sooner we can get on with the business of seriously addressing this nation's major issues at home and abroad and moving America forward in to the 21st century.
