In case people wondered whether or not there was serious discussion about secession, here’s news. Sean Hannity now has a poll on his website asking people what kind of revolution they want.
Keith Olbermann reported this finding on his show on Thursday night. This comes after conversations and website postings that have been found on the Internet and reviewed in small town gift shops, as this writer found. Still people questioned whether or not secession and sovereignty notions were really being seriously talked about. Apparently the discussion takes place, but are these serious?
Sean Hannity has his poll
out front on the website right now, with responses from the public. Sure enough there are people who are talking secession and even civil war.
One wonders why high-profile folk like Sean Hannity are asking the question about secession at the time 25 states have sovereignty legislation and right wing talk radio has been expressing the need to assert states rights. One declares that there is no compromise for being right.
