All the crap going on in Washington and through some of the states makes me wonder if there may be some master plan that these Repubs and Tea Party types are trying to install……and are the Koch Bros. (for lack of another front man) behind this new movement?
Rick Perry, Governor of Texas, is getting a lot of press….why? He has become the frontrunner, ahead of Mitt, for the GOP in the next election (boy that did not last long at all)……and somewhere in his little mind there is a right to secession from the US written into the Texas constitution……first, I believe that Texas has the right to break into smaller states, but there is nothing about secession if their government is unhappy with the government or the policies of the US (if there are Texans out there and they are reading this…please clear it up for us)……..
Looks like the master plan within the GOP is to do away with the national government in favor of 50 state governments……this would be the best thing for business and the wealthy…..why? to begin with NO minimum wage enforced by a national government, the death of unions, mandatory education, no environmental policy, no national health care or a social security….in other words, the people become tools to be discarded when they become a burden in favor of the younger ones as they come of age…..
They would not need to worry about SCOTUS getting in the way of the takeover …it would not be needed….each state has its own and they are elected, in most cases, and that would be good for corporations…..they could get whatever they want for some bucks for a campaign…….
Is this what the Founders had in mind? Without reading about the constitutional debate and siding with the Repubs, then yes it is what they had in mind……but if one has read the Constitution and the debate surrounding it, then this is all so much crap and if they succeed then we can kiss the American exceptionalism thing goodbye…….and return to the days of the Confederation.
The Confederation…….states were printing their own money, signing individual treaties and trade agreement…..the country collected almost NO taxes and the weakness of the situation made foreign intervention possible….in other words, America was a f*cked up place and not capable of anything other than the cutting of each others throats……..the states were too weak to even protect their own territory……and with all the GOP/Tea Party crap about returning so much back to the states we are moving to repeat our failure with the Confederation….It will benefit NO one but speculators and corporations….the residents will be SCREWED!
Bachmann I realize that she is not the sharpest pencil in the box, but……) does not think were need any revenue as a country and the rest of the GOP field is lessening the amount of money that the country could have on hand and that would make the states the major players….individually with 50 separate agendas….what would that do to make the US a stronger country? NOTHING!
