Republicans want Georgia to secede

Secession wrong play for GOP By Jim Thompson Athens Banner-Herald There’s no question Senate Resolution 632, a legislative proposal that should have been packaged with cases of survival rations and bottled water, a stash of automatic weapons, a mountain hideaway and enough tinfoil to make fashionable headgear for the entire family, was a Republican play […]
