“The citizens of the US suffer from blatant abuses of their rights such as the [National Defense Authorization Act], the [Transportation Security Administration], etc,” the Texas petition charges. “Given that the state of Texas maintains a balanced budget and is the 15th largest economy in the world, it is practically feasible for Texas to withdraw from the union, and to do so would protect it’s citizens’ standard of living and re-secure their rights and liberties in accordance with the original ideas and beliefs of our founding fathers which are no longer being reflected by the federal government.”

Peter Morrison, who serves as treasurer of the Hardin County Republican Party called people who voted for President Obama “maggots.” Wow, Mr. Morrison, try to stay classy. I thought people had the right to choose which candidate they will support in any election. Excuse me for voting for President Obama, considering I don’t get those hand-outs from the government he and his other nutty right wing buddies maintain about the president’s supporters. This is just another crazy diversion by a bunch of crybabies. I didn’t realize we went backwards to 1860 when blacks were treated like sh*t and white man’s word was gospel truth. The right wingers are grasping straws and it’s quite comical to watch they sink lower and lower into the racist muck that will only work against them.
