Wisconsin Republicans Will Vote On Right To Secede From America
April 14, 2014

Republican pundits constantly tout Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker as a potential presidential candidate in 2016, but what does it say about him when his own party will vote on the extreme right wing position of secession?

To secede or not to secede.

That will be the question for Wisconsin Republicans at next month's convention. Earlier this month, the party's Resolutions Committee voted in favor of a proposal that says the state party "supports legislation that upholds Wisconsin's right, under extreme circumstances, to secede."

A version of the so-called "state sovereignty" resolution was first OK'd last month by one of the state GOP's eight regional caucuses as an assertion of the state's 10th Amendment rights. The measure also calls for ending all mandates that go "beyond the scope of the constitutionally delegated powers of the federal government."

Walker is trying to distance himself from the measure, but as I've said before many times, when they unleashed the wingnut Kraken to counter Obama's election in 2008, they released a form of insanity that isn't going to go away easily.

Gov. Scott Walker, the leader of the state party, distanced himself from the resolution last week.

"I don't think that one aligns with where most Republican officials are in the state of Wisconsin — certainly not with me," Walker said at a press event on Friday.

The secessionist view must be pretty big in Wisconsin since they are voting on it, no?
