Laurens County Republicans of South Carolina are so steeped in Dominionist Tea that they boldly put their extremism in writing detailing their 28 Points of Republicanism. Even though this signed pledge has been deemed illegal that will not deter them from using this as a litmus test for potential political candidates. After all, why not? Everyone else is doing it.
As state and national elected officials battle for the most egregiously NRA-friendly legislation possible, bizarre shooting incidents are popping up around the country.

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.
Emboldened by their midterm victories, Republicans are already back to warmongering.
