Watch the video at this Daily Kos Diary. It’s a gathering of the Tea Party members and they speak of seceding from the Union. They mention withholding federal taxes and eliminating Congress.
Sounds like the Tea Partiers want a Federation instead of a Union. That would take us back to before 1787. Each State would have its own money and army and navy and would be able to make its own trade agreements. We tried this before and it became chaos. Now who exactly will protect these Tea Partiers from a foreign invasion? There are nations on this planet that would love to take advantage of invading such a weak Federation. This Federation of States needs to understand one thing and that is those States that remain in the Union, keep the Nukes and all the other weapons. The Federation is on its own. Good luck with that.
Just how long will these “snow top” Tea Partiers remain in the Federation once they lose their Social Security and Medicare? Or will they come back begging to join the Union?
