Wyoming GOP Chair Says State Should Consider Secession
Over the course of a few months, the GOP has lost control of both the White House and the senate. With Democrats in complete control, there isn’t much Republican leaders can do to respond.
That doesn’t mean they aren’t going to try. Arizona, a long-time Republican stronghold, voted for Biden and has recently elected two Democratic senators. In response, the Arizona GOP censured Cindy McCain.
Recently the head of the Wyoming GOP, Frank Earthorne, hinted that he might want to take it a step farther than Arizona. During a recent appearance on Steve Bannon’s show, Earthorne said:
“We need to focus on the fundamentals that’s been stated in this broadcast, and that is what Wyoming is. We are straight-talking, focused on the global scene, but we’re also focused at home. Many of these Western states have the ability to be self-reliant, and we’re keeping eyes on Texas too and their consideration of possible secession. Now, they have a different state constitution than we do as far as wording, but it is something that we’re all paying attention to.”

As Simple As Black and White: The GOP’s Secessionist Dream
It has been 150 years since the Confederacy of Southern States seceded from the United States of America starting the deadliest war in American history. It should be a time to reflect on the disastrous turn of events that ripped America apart with a view toward never taking that terrible path again, but instead, some southern states are celebrating secession with balls and celebrations. As if celebrating America's darkest times wasn't bad enough, new talk of secession and nullification signals a long standing hatred of the United States of America by racists in the South, and the hate is spreading across the country.
The GOP’s Unconstitutional Remedies
The American Revolution ended British rule; the Constitution created the United States of America, and that creation did not all happen at once. It was a process; the United States is the result of political compromise and evolution, not violent overthrow.
