Texas GOP Official Says “Maggots” Re-elected Obama, Calls for Secession


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.

  3. The racism of yesteryear has come full circle in our county. The entire world embraced our choice of a black President four years ago and most nations of the world still support him. The fringe elements of Republican sect have crept through into the mainstream once again with conservative mouthpieces planting the seeds of hate. The only doubt lies here at home rooting from bigotry. Watch the white hands paint Obama in Blackface at.


  4. so that how democracy works in the USA, if you don’t get your own way you’ll take your ball and go home, grow up.

    • Exactly, and when you all threaten to secede like it’s a sane thought what you are saying is that you cannot tolerate the ideological differences between north and south and that you are going to take your toys and go home. I am all about local everything brother, from food to govt. — but I also support the idea of the Republic — we are stronger together (tho folks down your way may disagree, but it’s really true, our differences are what make us great) — as long as we can continue to be mature adults and function together even when our side loses.

    • If they want to leave, that’s up to them and you have no say on it.

    • Stilleaf Cottonwood — you are incorrect sir. Broomer is the only person who sounds like an American — you conservatives and Tea-Partiers clearly don’t understand the founding principles of the founding fathers — which is of course a laughable joke — you all can’t even conform to your party’s genesis. The founding fathers would be appalled at the secession notion — the whole idea of America is compromise, and cycles — if you lose this time you try to do better next time — you learn from your mistakes and move forward like a mature adult — you don’t just quit the country. Broomers comments are right on the mark — you all are behaving like angry 3 year-olds whose candy got taken. And BTW people — we are a Republic, not a Democracy — read about why the founding fathers feared the Greek model as Plato came to, and so instituted a democratic republic. Learn about your country and how it works before you start talking trash!

    • Yes. That is how Democracy works. However, we are a representative republic.

    • Mark, where are you from? This country no longer holds to the Constitution upon which it was created. That said, the US Constitution does provide for revolution unlike the lemmings in Europe…

    • Im not american and you don’t know how happy that makes me. If you ask me you don’t sound very american, I thought it was UNITED states of america or its only that if you get your own way. America is broke and it’s funny how you all want this big military but don’t want to pay for it. you want the goverment to step in and help with every natural disasters but who pays for it, the money doesn’t come out thin air, its Taxes, Im from Canada and we pay high tax but if I got run over by a car an ambulance would take me to the hospital, they would fix me up and I would have to sell my house to pay for it, it wouldn’t cost me anything. My country isn’t perfect and I don’t like the goverment we have right now but i will wait to vote them out next time. AND I KNOW EXACTLY WHO I AM, I’M NOT A CRY BABY THAT WANTS TO SECEDED BECAUSE THE VOTE DIDN’T GO MY WAY. I WOULD CALL YOU SIR A TRADER.

    • Stilleaf Cottonwood BTW — that’s a great name — is that given or taken?

    • Stilleaf Cottonwood — you can’t just quit your country when you don’t like the direction it’s going — you work for change and to get your people back in power. That’s what we did — believe me sir, 8 years of Bush’s tax and spend Republicanism and misguided and misplaced wars were just as painful for us as gay marriage and Obamacare are for you all;-) Peace.

  5. the states were not forced to join the federal union…they can freely chose to leave…this is not the moffia!

  6. I can’t blame people for wanting to secede. Everyday since 2001 our freedoms have been eroded away in the name of security. This country used to be a Constitutional Republic until 1913. After that , a democracy and now its turning into a autocratric government. Chairman Maoboma is using the foundation layed by George W Bush to turn this country into a authoritarian tyranny. The majority of the american people have traded self determanation for government handouts and in the end , the powers that be will take what little freedom we have left. I have prayed that this country would correct itself, but I’m afraid it is too late now.

  7. Bye, bye texas, who needs you? bunch of redneck racists!

  8. I agree texas can be very self sufficient..

  9. It could happen and will happen some day. I think

  10. Don’t label people “maggots”.

  11. I’m all in if we’re serious about this. Please no name calling because actions speak louder than words. I’ve signed a petition and will move there when my finances allow me to.

    We have to be serious about this and work on it as a team. For Texan’s sake, I would love to help.
