Guest Paul Posted April 18, 2009 Report Share Posted April 18, 2009 When we liberals opposed the Iraqi war, correctly as the world now knows, we were labeled as traitors who hated our country. Yet we never talked of seceding from the United States. We just disagreed, as it is every American's right to do - you wouldn't have thought so from the reaction. The Dixie Chicks were banned from radio stations because the audiences were so-called "conservatives." Very few dared to speak out for fear of being labeled unpatriotic. That's not conservatism. That's anti-American radicalism, opposed to the very principles that make the USA the USA. Now we see the Governor of Texas talking about secession. According to the latest poll, 31% of Texans agree. This is pure hypocrisy, and worse it is an attack on the union. They lost the election, so they want to pick up their ball and leave. It's disgusting. Unlike the civil disagreement we liberals had with the Iraqi war, this truly is unpatriotic - because this isn't just dissent and disagreement. It is a call to break up the United States of America. How can we hold a country together with people behaving like this? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
