Closing Thought–26Jan21

Looks like the whole secession thing is becoming popular again…..

It was an idea that has made the rounds in the past……

Texas recently has taken the lead……I wrote about the idea in the state….https://lobotero.com/2021/01/06/secession-again/

A silly idea but it is not limited to Texas……

Washington Examiner reported that the chairman of the Wyoming Republican Party floated the idea of secession to form a neo-confederacy consisting of Republican-voting states.

“Wyoming GOP Chairman Frank Eathorne suggested the idea toWar Room Pandemic podcast host and former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon in a weekend interview focused on the decision by Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney, the third-ranked Republican in the House, to vote in favor of impeaching Trump on a charge of incitement of insurrection related to the deadly riot that took place at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6,” reported Mike Brest.

Eathorne told Bannon, a longtime adviser to Trump currently under indictment for an alleged border wall scam, “We need to focus on the fundamentals … Many of these Western states have the ability to be self-reliant, and we’re keeping eyes on Texas too and their consideration of possible secession. Now, they have a different state constitution than we do as far as wording, but it is something that we’re all paying attention to.”

I say let them go!

They will be begging to return in short order….once they lose the protection of the US and the benefits of being part of the country they will reconsider this ill-advised idea.

As I say often…”Can’t Fix Stupid”!

  1. I feel the same way about the Scottish and Welsh who want independence. Give it to them, let them go. These so-called ‘unified’ countries haven’t been unified for centuries. When the Soviet Union broke up, western countries applauded that situation. Why not the same for them now?
    Best wishes, Pete.

      1. When I lived in London, I used to be an advocate for an ‘Independent London’. As you can tell, I am far from being a ‘nationalist’. 🙂
