Georgia voted to secede from the Union two weeks ago?

This is on the front page of the Atlanta Journal Constitution today. I read the whole thing and its kind of crazy but I figured many of you would find this interesting.

Georgia Senate threatens dismantling of USA
7:02 am April 16, 2009, by Jay Bookman

It wasn’t quite the firing on Fort Sumter that launched the Civil War. But on April 1, your Georgia Senate did threaten by a vote of 43-1 to secede from and even disband the United States.

It was not an April Fool’s joke.

In fact, Senate Resolution 632 did a lot more than merely threaten to end this country. It stated that under the Constitution, the only crimes the federal government could prosecute were treason, piracy and slavery.

The entries under the blog are disgusting

85% statist fools, one even going as far as to suggest that the Keynesians predicted the stock market decline. I am tearing my hair out right now.

I liked this story:

Perhaps I am reading this wrong, but.
I would actually like to see this happen in every state. The federal gooberment has few responsibilities and have stuck their hand in on everything. I thought that's what all of the protests were for. To make known our opposition.

The last paragraph threw me!

So, Oklahoma has totally passed this resolution? Any further steps necessary?

It is funny that they passed this the very same way everything else gets passed, under the table and on the hush-hush basically. I guess two can play this game.

Why do we allow our elected officials to put their signature on anything they have not read??? Why???

The tax code is 62,000 pages long -

"Why do we allow our elected officials to put their signature on anything they have not read??? Why???"

Good point LLL! - Hope you didn't sign your tax return...nor our "elected officials"...

Anyone read the tax code you agreed to?

It should be a law that no resolution, no code nor any law is more than one page long. A standard legal page that is.

I will say this...

most of the politicians in this state are crazy or owned by a religious lobby. We are only one of three states left that have blue laws(outlawing Sunday sales of alcohol). I believe Indiana and Connecticutt are the other two. Over the past decade with the huge increase in population of the Atlanta area mostly from northerners and westerners the blue laws have come under attack because most of these folks are used to buying alcohol on Sunday if they want to. Well it comes up every year in the General Assembly and the Baptists Preacher lobby steps in and bang its gone. Just one example of the power the religious lobbiest have in this state....the practically run it and don't get me wrong I have no opposition to religion I just believe in seperation of church and state.
