Texas Governor Rick Perry, a Republican (of course), caused a stir recently when he suggested that the federal government of the United States has gotten too big and too intrusive in the daily lives of Average Americans. In fact, if you listen closely, you can hear Perry refer to the current, "unpresidented (as opposed to unprecedented) abuse of power," an almost cleverly subliminal dig at President Obama. Perry then suggested that the citizens of Texas would have a choice; to side with the (presumably the liberals, elitists, and that nigra in the White House) in Washington, D.C. or side with real red-blooded Texans in what amounted to a thinly veiled call for a secessionist movement in Texas. Leave it to Fox News's Sean Hannity to defend such treason. Hannity is so far out in Right Field that the likes of Geraldo Rivera and Jonah Goldberg are voices of reason by comparison (sic). Never mind that America fought a bloody war over this shit back in the 1860's.
This is what the Republican Party has come to. They lose some elections because they're bereft of effective ideas, and instead of doing the hard work necessary to become competitive in the marketplace of public policy, they simply want to quit, take their marbles, and go home.
