We all remember that recently, the Wisconsin republican party held their annual convention and one of the big topics was a vote on secession.
Delegates at the state Republican convention are set to vote Saturday on a proposed resolution that directs lawmakers to push through legislation nullifying Obamacare, Common Core educational standards and "drone usage in the state of Wisconsin."
"Be it further resolved," the proposal concludes, "that we strongly insist our state representatives work to uphold Wisconsin's 10th Amendment rights, and our right to, under extreme circumstances, secede, passing legislation affirming this to the U.S. Federal Government."
Robin Vos, Scott Fitzgerald and Scott Walker are starting to gain a following!
In Georgia, a former Government worker decided to show his unhappiness with the Federal Government in a different way:
Dennis Marx, a former TSA employee and member of the 100,000-plus “sovereign citizen” movement, planned to lay siege to a Forsyth County, Ga., courthouse and take hostages before he was killed by a sheriff’s deputy on Friday.
Throwing smoke bombs and tire spikes, Marx attacked the Forsyth County Courthouse on Friday morning, striking a sheriff’s deputy in the leg with a bullet. The deputy, 25-year veteran James Rush, returned fire, and Mr. Marx was killed after a brief gun battle on the street, which was joined by a local SWAT team.
According to Forsyth County Sheriff Duane Piper, Marx had in his possession buckets of homemade explosives, ammunition, smoke grenades, as well as food and water – clues that “he came here with the purpose of occupying the courthouse.” Sheriff Piper added that Marx’s “intention was to get in that front door and take hostages.”
He is just a crazy with a gun right? What does that have to do with WI? Overlooking of course the secession thing.
Sovereign citizens believe that most of the US government is illegitimate and cannot act with force of law, and Marx had made specific complaints about what he thought were illegal searches of his home that led to several drug and gun charges. He was scheduled to plead guilty to those charges on Friday, but instead he assaulted the courthouse.
Hmmmm, that seems vaguely familiar to me!
But Wait, there's more!! In Las Vegas two people proudly displayed their Gadsden flag, while shouting about the revolution. Unfortunately they did so after they ambushed and shot two police officers in the back.
As we learn more and more about the details of these incidents, do not let anyone say we had no warnings!The two were heard shouting "this is a revolution", as they entered a pizza parlour and opened fire on officers Alyn Beck, 41, and Igor Soldo, 31, who were having lunch.The shooters took badges and weapons off the policemen and covered their bodies with a cloth sporting the Gadsden flag, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.Named after its designer, the US revolutionary general Christopher Gadsden, the yellow flag depicts a coiled rattlesnake above the words "Dont tread on me". It has become a symbol of US patriotism recently adopted by the ultra-conservative Tea Party.
Looks like Harry Reid was right all along!
