Wisconsin Republicans Will Vote On The State Maybe Seceding, Because They Love America
Wisconsin tabaggers don't want to alarm anyone, they just believe in being prepared, is all, which is why they want the state tobe ready to secede from the union. Not that they think they'll really need to. So when the state's Republican convention rolls around in May, there will be a resolution on the agenda to consider whether the state GOP "supports legislation that upholds Wisconsin’s right, under extreme circumstances, to secede.”
But don't worry, they're not going to secede unless they really, really have to, and the proposal is not supported by Gov. Scott Walker. Still, there were enough maybe-secessionists on the Resolutions Committee to adopt the question on a split vote in an April 5 meeting. Honestly, it's not that big a deal, just one more option they want to have; besides, presumably, even if the state doesn't secede, there's still the option of Second Amendment solutions -- again, only if necessary, like if the Bureau of Land Management tries to collect grazing fees.
Gov. Walker said that the idea of secession was not in line "with where most Republican officials are in the state of Wisconsin -- certainly not with me.” So that's a relief. Maybe we should check up on this with all governors, just to be sure. Seems like the sort of thing we should really nail down.

Madison Milwaukee Professor Mordecai Lee seemed not to take the resolution in the "just in case" spirit in which it was obviously proposed, suggesting that there is somehow something un-American about secession:
This is not cute. This is not funny ... I’m not sure if we should take it seriously in the sense of even paying attention to it. I’m not really sure if we should take it as a funny joke of these peculiar, abhorrent, odd-ball activities, or if this is a signal — a kind of above-the-water-line iceberg that’s telling us things are still really divisive in America.
I think we need to put it pretty bluntly -- talking about secession is being a traitor to America.
Wisconsinites were among roughly 20 states that submitted petitions to the Whitehouse.gov website calling for secession last year, because taxes and tyranny and stuff, plus probably Duck Dynasty maybe.
