Will Col. Allen West lead us into Confederacy 2.0?
“Republican Party of Texas Chairman Allen West suggested states should secede from the union after the Supreme Court refused to hear a case President Donald Trump wanted to use to overturn the presidential election.
‘This decision establishes a precedent that says states can violate the US constitution and not be held accountable,’ West said. ‘Perhaps law-abiding states should bond together and form a Union of states that will abide by the constitution,’ he added.
His comments were quickly read as a push for secession, what southern states did in the lead-up to the Civil War, in a dispute over slavery.
Be careful what you wish for. You just may get it.
Seriously though, this is probably what we would get … not anything resembling the Confederacy, but Tea Party Boomers trying to save America by returning to the glory days of the 2000s.
Note: I’ve been in a cynical mood this year.
