A conservative columnist and former aide to President Ronald Reagan called on southern states to secede and form an ultraconservative new nation named after his old boss.
Douglas MacKinnon, a former speechwriter for Presidents Reagan and George H.W. Bush, appeared Tuesday on The Janet Mefford Show to promote his new book, “The Secessionist States of America: The Blueprint for Creating a Traditional Values Country … Now,” reported Right Wing Watch.
He told the religious conservative host that southern states – starting with Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina – should leave the United States so they can implement a right-wing Christian system of government.
MacKinnon envisions other states joining, but he hopes to leave out Texas because “there have been a number of incursions into Texas and other places from some of the folks in Mexico.”
Fine. Secede, idiot. Meanwhile, the US government can remove all the military bases and federal installations from your secessionist states. Not to mention absolutely all federal dollars whatsoever for highways, other infrastructure, and everything else. These Red States get back more in federal dollars than they pay in taxes, anyway. Go your own way. We won’t miss you. And take a few other states with you.
Our borders will be closed to your citizens. Although I would say that any citizen in your “new country” who does not agree with your right-wing Christo-nazi agenda should receive aid to move here.
Momma Bear left Wisconsin over 30 years ago to be with Daddy Bear in Texas, but still thinks of herself as being a Wisconsinite (Wisconsonian?). So when I told her about RNC Co-Chair Sharon Day saying that Wisconsin voters are stupid, I thought I’d get a rise out of her.
Instead, she thought a minute, shrugged her shoulders and said, “Well they did elect Scott Walker, then fail to oust him on a recall, so Ms. Day might not be all that wrong.”
