Because on Tuesday, Neoconfederate Sen. "Cap'n Al" Melvin (R-Tucson) convinced the "Birthers-Birchers-Secessionists" Tea-Publican insurrectionists to put secession from the United States on the November ballot. See Cap'n Al Melvin's 'zombie bill' for secession passed by the Senate, goes back to the House.
Oh, they're not calling it that, but for all practical purposes, that is what this is.
The House passed HCR 2004 on a 38-20 vote, sending the resolution to the Secretary of State. The resolution refers to the ballot a constitutional amendment declaring state sovereignty over lands, air, water, minerals, wildlife and the state's other natural resources based on the argument of "equal footing."
So this November Arizonans will suffer the national embarrassment of having to vote on whether to secede from the United States. Of course, it is unconstitutional and entirely unenforceable.
Voters should reject this unconstitutional and un-American ballot measure, but more importantly, voters should throw out of office every one of the treasonous Neoconfederate Tea-Publican insurrectionists who violated their oath of office and voted in favor of secession from the United States. Here are the traitors names:
Cecil Ash, Brenda Barton, Kate Brophy McGee, Heather Carter, Steve Court, Chester Crandall, Jeff Dial, Karen Fann, Eddie Farnsworth, John Fillmore, Tom Forese, Doris Goodale, David Gowan, Rick Gray, Jack Harper, Russ Jones, Peggy Judd, John Kavanagh, Debbie Lesko, Phil Lovas, Nancy McCain, J.D.Mesnard, Steve Montenegro, Justin Olson, Justin Pierce, Frank Pratt, Bob Robson, Carl Seel, David Burnell Smith, David Stevens, Michelle Ugenti, Steve Uri, Ted Vogt, Jim Weiers, Jerry Weiers, Vic Williams, Kimberly Yee, Andy Tobin.
NV - Terri Proud -- but you know she supports it.
Sylvia Allen, Frank Antenori, Nancy Barto, Andy Biggs, Judy Burges, Rich Crandall, Ron Gould, Linda Gray, Gail Griffin, Lori Klein, Jerry Lewis, John McComish, Al Melvin, Rick Murphy, John Nelson, Michelle Reagan, Don Shooter, Steve Smith, Steve Yarbrough, Steve Pierce.
Never again should the modern-day Tea-Publican Party be allowed to call itself "the party of Lincoln." Lincoln is rolling over in his grave at this act of insurrection against the United States.
