Why do so many Republicans hate America and openly talk about treason? Good luck with prying away that economic juggernaut away from the rest of the country. How ever could the country survive without Tennessee? The state – like most of the red states – receives much more federal money than they pay into the system. Those states who pay more would probably be glad to unload the freeloading state of Tennessee.
Rep. Zach Wamp, one of three candidates seeking the GOP gubernatorial nomination in Tennessee, told Hotline OnCall that Perry had the right idea. Wamp argued that mandates forced on the states by the Obama administration’s health care bill have put secession on the table.
“I hope that the American people will go to the ballot box in 2010 and 2012 so that states are not forced to consider separation from this government,” Wamp told Hotline OnCall Friday.
Wamp said he hopes voters send a message in November that the federal government should “strictly adhere” to the Constitution.
“Patriots like Rick Perry have talked about these issues because the federal government is putting us in an untenable position at the state level,” he told OnCall.
