A Republican official in Texas is advocating for the state to break off from the U.S. because President Obama won re-election.
As reported by Salon, Hardin County Texas Republican treasurer Peter Morrison believes Texas is better off separated from the U.S. and after “maggots” re-elected the President on Tuesday. Over 61 million people voted for President Obama this week. Morrison outlined his feelings in a newsletter and a post on his facebook page which has now been removed.
“We must contest every single inch of ground and delay the baby-murdering, tax-raising socialists at every opportunity. But in due time, the maggots will have eaten every morsel of flesh off of the rotting corpse of the Republic, and therein lies our opportunity,” the post read.
According to Salon, Morrison wrote, “why should Vermont and Texas live under the same government?” in a Tea Party newsletter this week as well. Morrison has a newsletter called Peter Morrison’s report. “Are you tired of so-called “conservatives” who sell out on everything from taxes to immigration? Are you tired of our country’s slide into moral chaos and confusion,” the introductory page reads.
