All this over health care?
Anybody who thinks the faux protests going on in this country are over health care is asleep.
The last time we heard the phrase 'state's rights' was right before the South seceded from the Union and started the Civil War.
Sorry, teabaggers, states don't have sovereignty, only nations do. Where would Arkansas be without all those FEDERAL farm subsidies? Where would Texas be without endless FEDERAL corporate subsidies to its oil refineries? Where would North Carolina be without all those FEDERAL military bases? How about Florida without FEDERAL GOVERNMENT subsidies to its massive corporate orange growers?
George Carlin was right. Let's put all the Right-wing wackos in a big fenced-in lot and once a month we'll toss a few tons of raw meat and more gun ammo over the fence.
You can't secede from the American government, you dumb asses. You don't have the money and you clearly don't have the brains.
