States Accuse Washington of Provoking a ‘War of Federal Aggression’

Special Report by Dixie Larkin, AOE Founding Member

Not since the debate over slavery has an issue so bitterly divided this nation.  This time around, the Federal Government seems to be set on making slaves of citizens rather than setting slaves free, according to State lawmakers across the heartland.  A Coalition of Conservative States made primarily up of 31 traditionally red states (see map and Alaska) have voiced their intention of severing ties with DC if the pending Health Care legislation is passed.  In addition to the states shown, Wisconsin, New Hampshire, Minnesota, Maine and Rhode Island are on the fence, but sources say all but Rhode Island are leaning toward joining the Coalition.

“We believe the Federal Government has usurped the Constitution,” says Texas Governor Rick Perry, “When we agreed to enter the Union, we agreed with an understanding of the power of the Federal Government as laid out in the Constitution.  In no uncertain terms, the Federal Government has violated that agreement ... they broke the contract, so to speak, and has thus relinquished us of our duty to abide by that agreement, which is to remain a State in the Union.”  Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell who studied law at Regent University, a premier conservative Christian Law School, added, “make no mistake, the decisions being made in Washington [DC] are tearing apart the very fabric of our nation.  Foisting such Unconstitutional legislation as ObamaCare upon an unwilling citizenry is tearing away the very threads upon which this nation was sown together.”  Governor Tim Pawlenty (MN), who is trying to steer his state toward joining the Coalition underlined the fierce reverence that Coalition leaders have for the United States of America, but said, “When the Federal Government abandons the Constitution, patriots have no choice but to abandon the Federal Government.

In response to backlash from States, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) flippantly alluded to the Civil War era Mason-Dixon line by asking that the line separating the “redneck states from the progressive blue states” would be named the Pelosi-Reid line.  Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) weighed in by calling the 31 Coalition State a “fringe group” who would “quickly be crushed if they continue this nonsense.”  Governor Bobby Jindal responded to Reid and Pelosi by pointing out that their “cheeky disregard for America’s Heartland is forcing this 'War of Federal Aggression' upon us.”

^^^^Why, that was a very interesting series of points you made cc22...

The only thing Rhode Island is riding the fence on: is whether to keep the state motto, "Size Doesn't Matter", or change it to "Clamtastic!"

I don't think that RI will join the coalition mentioned. Every Rhode Islander I know is riding on the fence.

I ought to know, I've lived in Rhode Island for 7-8 years now and I still can't get a straight answer from anybody on anything. Welcome to Rhode Island.

Also, Rhode Island was the first state to strike a blow against England during the Revolutionary War. The English ship "Gaspee" was sunk in Narragansett Bay in 1772 after being hit by a cow that had been catapulted from a nearby castle.
True story. >.<

Urgh! Lemme try that again...

AND the first British troops sent to crush the Revolution landed in Newport, Rhode Island in 1773. They were themselves crushed by a giant wooden rabbit that had been catapulted from a nearby castle...or something like that ( ). =P

Ok, that is all.

This coalition thingy gives me a boner. The Pelosi-Reid line definately needs to be put in place to protect us progressives from all those unruly racist rednecks. Otherwise they're just going to ride their gun-filled NASCARS all over our Progressive diverse educational systems and shoot out our green-energy solar panels with their shotguns. Bastards.

@ Julio - well, it's a good thing we have cattle and giant wooden rabbits at our disposal then.

While you joke about it, our nation is headed for Civil War in The Summer of 2012... and the blatant disregard for: "The Covenant Of Brotherhood [Our Constitution]" - is only one of the two stated reasons given in The Scriptures. Why not read Amos 1:9-10?

Bear in mind, that: "Latter Day Tyre", and "Edom" - are the two dominant regions of: "Canaan" [aka, The United States of America].
