After checking the Constitution and amendments just to be
sure, I don't find a provision for voting a state out of the
Union. If there had been one, I would have started a
petition to vote Vermont off the island!
Senator Jim Jeffords (R-Vt) is about to defect, or so
tonight's news sources report. Of course, Jeffords is a
RINO (Republican in name only) and my state has another one in
Senator John McCain (R-Ariz). They seem to be kindred
souls, pouty, egotistical, self-seeking and wearing the wrong
However, with a 50-50 senate, they did serve some purpose
whether they voted with the Republicans or not. The power
balance, with Vice President Dick Cheney as the tiebreaker for
any evenly-divided votes, has been with the Republicans.
If Jeffords defects to the Democrats, or even becomes an
independent, that will make Senator Tom Daschle (D-SD) the
Senate Majority Leader. (You remember him, the guy with
the muffler in his hand.)
It looks like the liberals couldn't wait until 2002 to fire
their political cruise missiles at the Bush administration.
Of course, Vermont has the dubious distinction of being our
first state to legalize "civil unions" between gay
At the founding of this nation, Vermont may not have been a
distinguished contributor to the founding fathers, but it
certainly wasn't the traitorous disgrace of the colonies either.
If you wonder what's happening in this nation, or even care,
it's this: the socialist agenda is strongly on the move
and intends to take this nation down, destroy the foundational
documents and place a liberal judiciary in position to be the
ruling junta. The 10th Amendment, states' rights and all
other traditional freedoms will be history, and revisionists
will rewrite history to cover up what this nation was originally
Our institutions of higher learning are so liberals they
could all be products of the Kremlin as it was under Gorbachev,
or even Stalin. All I need do is refer the readers to the
recent mistreatment of Ann Coulter at Cornell, or President Bush
Universities that were founded basically as theological
institutions of higher learning are now the most godless,
communistic brainwashing machines in America. Young folks
go to get an education and graduate as pawns of the liberal
machine, apologizing for being Americans.
So another liberal defects, tossing the Senate into the
waiting socialist grip of Tom Daschle who, along with Rep. Dick
Gephardt (D-Mo) have eyes are on the presidential election year
2004. Nice, very nice. Such is today's definition of
the "loyal opposition." If the opposition had
been this "loyal" in 1941 they would have apologized
for Pearl Harbor and invited the Japanese Navy to take it over.
Why isn't America the patriotic nation it used to be?
As a nation, we have never been able to fight ideologies,
just people. There has to be a face attached to an enemy
or Americans just can't grasp it.
Plus, big government has spoon fed so many for so long
they're milk-babies, incapable of taking strong meat (and yes,
that allusion did come from the Bible).
When I was young, Vermont was known for its maple syrup.
Would to God it were still that way, instead of being a sticky
