Wisconsin GOP to vote on secession
Posted by Charles II on April 21, 2014
They have seceded from reality, anyway. Daniel Bice, Journal Sentinel:
To secede or not to secede.
That will be the question for Wisconsin Republicans at next month’s convention.
Earlier this month, the party’s Resolutions Committee voted in favor of a proposal that says the state party “supports legislation that upholds Wisconsin’s right, under extreme circumstances, to secede.”
A version of the so-called “state sovereignty” resolution was first OK’d last month by one of the state GOP’s eight regional caucuses as an assertion of the state’s 10th Amendment rights. The measure also calls for ending all mandates that go “beyond the scope of the constitutionally delegated powers of the federal government.”
The resolutions, Murphy [sic; probably should be Krueger] said, express the feeling of many Republicans that they’ve had “enough of big government.”
[4th Congressional district Vice Chair Michael]Murphy agreed, saying the country is in dire straits financially and the federal budget needs to be brought under control. He suggested that the resolutions are in keeping with the ideas of the founding fathers, who he asserted “seceded” from Great Britain.
“If that’s crazy talk,” Murphy said, “I would be happy to carry that as a badge of honor.”
