We won, you lost

By Staff | Apr 14, 2010

To the editor,

Right wing Republicans and Tea Party extremists are talking about seceding from the United States. I say “Go for it.” Governors like Rick Perry of Texas and Bob McDonald of Virginia want to inflame the hatred of America then they should leave and form their own country.

The southern Republican-leaning states are the high welfare states and the progressive north is stuck supporting them. I would love to see them pay their own way and they can take the Bush debt with them. They can deregulate everything and pay for their own bailouts. I for one am tired of putting up with the bad judgment of the politicians they elect.

Maybe if they had to take care of themselves they they would understand that taking responsibility and fixing problems is more work that anger, apathy and ignorance.

But here in “Real America,” we had an election. We won, you lost. Get used to it.
