America could have two governors who favor secession after the November elections. The other would be congressman Zach Wamp of Tennessee, who is trailing Bill Haslam by 36% to 25% in the latest Mason-Dixon poll. The Hotline quotes Wamp as saying that Tennessee and other states “may have to consider seceding from the union if the federal government does not change its ways regarding mandates.” “Said Wamp: ‘I hope that the American people will go to the ballot box in 2010 and 2012 so that states are not forced to consider separation from this government.” The Hotline goes on to say, “He went on to praise Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) who suggested the same remedy last year.”
