    Lightbulb Georgia Senate now threatens to secede

    It wasn’t quite the firing on Fort Sumter that launched the Civil War. But on April 1, your Georgia Senate did threaten by a vote of 43-1 to secede from and even disband the United States.

    It was not an April Fool’s joke.

    In fact, Senate Resolution 632 did a lot more than merely threaten to end this country. It stated that under the Constitution, the only crimes the federal government could prosecute were treason, piracy and slavery.

    “Therefore, all acts of Congress which assume to create, define or punish [other] crimes … are altogether void, and of no force,” the Georgia Senate declared.

    In other words, in the infinite, almost unanimous wisdom of the Georgia Senate, Michael Vick is being imprisoned illegally, Bernie Madoff should serve no time for stealing $60 billion and the Unabomber must go free. In fact, the federal penitentiary in Atlanta should be emptied of its inmates.

    But wait, there’s more.

    The resolution goes on to endorse the theory that states have the right to abridge constitutional freedoms of religion, press and speech. According to the resolution, it is up to the states to decide “how far the licentiousness of speech and of the press may be abridged.”

    The resolution even endorses “nullification,” the legal concept that states have the power to “nullify” or ignore federal laws that they believe exceed the powers granted under the Constitution. That concept has a particularly nasty legacy. It helped precipitate the Civil War, and in the 1950s and early ’60s it was cited by Southern states claiming the right to ignore Supreme Court rulings ordering the end of segregation.

    Finally, the resolution states that if Congress, the president or federal courts take any action that exceeds their constitutional powers, the Constitution is rendered null and void and the United States of America is officially disbanded. As an example, the resolution specifically states that if the federal government enacts “prohibitions of type or quantity of arms or ammunition,” the country is disbanded.

    In other words, if Congress votes to restore the ban on sale of assault rifles, the United States is deemed to no longer exist.

    This, your Georgia state Senate voted 43-1 to endorse.

    Now, to be fair, the resolution passed because it was snuck unnoticed onto the Senate resolution calendar on the 39th day of the 40-day legislative session, when senators were trying to handle dozens of bills and scores of amendments. Most did not have an opportunity to read the six-page resolution, which in its description claimed to merely affirm “states’ rights based on Jeffersonian principles.”

    However, those who introduced and sponsored the measure have no such excuse. Presumably they read and understood what they asked their fellow senators to endorse. And those sponsors include some of the most prominent members of the Senate —- Senate Majority Leader Chip Rogers of Woodstock, Senate President Pro Tem Tommie Williams, Transportation Committee Chairman Jeff Mullis of Chickamauga, and Chief Deputy Whip John Wiles of Cobb County, among others.

    The resolution they sponsored is part of a radical right-wing national movement —- a similar resolution was introduced in the Georgia House but not voted on. It has been introduced in legislatures all over the nation, and has passed in both chambers in Oklahoma and one in South Dakota.

    And while the Georgia resolution is legally meaningless and was passed without debate or even knowledge of most senators, it has had an impact. It has been hailed by, among others, those fighting the conspiracy to create a single North American country, by the Confederate States Militia, by the John Birch Society, and the League of the South, which still pines for the cause of an “independent South” and believes that “Southern society is radically different from the society impressed upon it by an alien occupier.”

    You have to question the judgment of those who would have any truck whatsoever with such nonsense, and who would jeopardize the reputation of the Georgia Senate to lend aid and comfort to such radical causes and fringe groups.

    and the rebuttal..



    What do they plan on fighting with, peaches?

    Of course, what's really going on here is that Republicans are intentionally fanning the flames of violence because they've been out of power for a grand total of 100 days. They began pushing their followers towards violence during the presidential campaign, and have actually increased the inflammatory language over the past few months. Culminating, today, with a call for the Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Bureau of Investigation to no longer investigate known domestic terror threats.

    The Republican party has a serious problem with extremists, not just in its midst, but among its leadership and its key allies in the faux media (FOX News) and its grassroots (Limbaugh, the blogs, and the religious right). The GOP is quite literally pushing their most extreme followers to violence. And now that they're calling on the government to ignore known terrorist threats, it's only a matter of time before something violent happens, and then the Republican party will find itself out of power permanently.

    Maybe I'm being stupid, but I don't understand why Georgia wants to secede. I read the article, but maybe I missed it?

    I fixed it immediately, it was a typo. Hopefully someone will answer my question, because I don't understand what their reasons are.

    Showing their true colors, so to speak. Do they think people should do anything they want as long as there is no authority to punish them for it? These types of people would have slavery if there wasn't a law against it.

    Why is this Southern secession stuff showing its hood, er, head now of all times? Ugly, ugly stuff. I hope the sane people in those states speak up just as loudly as the ignorant hate-filled ones.

    Maybe the southern states will secede in the hopes of re-starting slavery. I wouldn't put it past them.

    Well, they can go and take the 'tards with them.

    Yeah, these so-called 'red states' keep forgetting that they are not economically viable and the 'blue states' taxes are the only thing keeping them afloat.

    Oops. I'm sorry, Sweetie. I have quite a few friends in the south.

    I just find this kind of stuff very annoying, not to mention the fact that secession didn't work out so well for them last time. (Or any of us.)

    It's funny how only the Southern states are threatening to secede. I guess they keep forgetting the ass-whupping they got the last time they tried to break away. Those who don't know history are doomed to repeat it.
