Following the BRexit referendum in the UK where the people voted for Britain to leave the European Union (EU), a meeting was held in this southern city to consider a similar proposal in the USA. The proposal was called “Federal Exit” or FEDexit for short.
Colonel Sanders of Kentucky proposed that a FEDexit vote be taken of people living in South Carolina, Mississippi, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Texas, Virginia, Arkansas, North Carolina, and Tennessee to see if they wanted to leave the union. Some delegates to the meeting were very enthusiastic about such a proposal, but other delegates felt that a similar scheme had been tried once before and failed. These latter attendees cited the disappearance of historical monuments around the country caused by left wing protestors.
A few delegates wanted to open the vote up to include all 50 states. The federal government under the Democratic Obama administration has been overreaching beyond what the US Constitution specifies as powers belonging to individuals and state governments. These areas include energy production, healthcare (ObamaCare), gun control, farming, water and land rights (private property), increasing federal taxes and business regulations, freedom of speech, freedom of religion and dictatorial rule by Executive Branch edicts.
Cooler heads prevailed and the scheduling of the FEDexit vote was delayed until after the US presidential election of 2016. There was apprehension among the delegates that a Republican Lincolnesque leader (in the stature of President Abraham Lincoln) might emerge from the vote. All the delegates agreed it would not be corrupt, lying, dishonest Democrat Hillary Clinton. In fact Hillary’s only connection with Abraham Lincoln was when, as First Lady she rented the Lincoln Bedroom for $1,000 per night to former President Bill Clinton’s political supporters!
The FEDexit meeting was adjourned after adopting the Gadsden (Don’t Tread On Me) Flag as their banner!
