How to save our Democracy: either a Coup or secession

Many ways to skin a cat.

A piece by Klayman published Monday in Renew America serves as a gold mine of conservative fringe fantasies.
Citing “Benghazi-gate” and “Fast and Furious-gate,” Klayman lamented that Congress is unlikely to “to remove the mullah-in-chief from office.” And with the courts taking a pass on Obama’s “phony birth certificate,” that leaves only one option, according to Klayman.
“I therefore call upon all American patriots, once we obtain this conviction, which we will shortly, to converge on Washington,” Klayman wrote. “Millions should stand in front of the White House and other national treasures and demand that Barack Hussein Obama leave. If the Egyptians can do this with regard to another radical Muslim, former president Mohamed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood, then can’t we Americans do it with Obama?”
He added: “And, when we do converge on and ‘Occupy Washington’ in the millions on a date to be announced for the week before Thanksgiving, the people may think about chanting: ‘Mr. President (to use the term loosely), put the Quran down, get up off your knees and come out with your hands up!'”

Actually this reminds me of how war protesters converged to levitate the Pentagon to, you know, Stop the Vietnam War.  And while I suppose if we go with stereotypes, some  were on drugs and might have half or three quarters believed they were doing so, I do believe most thought this a symbolic exercise.Notably Noam Chomsky was in the convergence.

This goes back to a 2009 Newsmax article suggesting a coup might be in the offing.  Here we just need to work out the details.

(It’s interesting to look back in these archives.  Lamar Alexander’s rhetorical slinging has not discounted him from getting a primary fight.  Today’s goofy Republican rhetorical bombast has the Party as “winning” like “Charlie Sheen“… ’tis Rand Paul… and this makes for an interesting matrix of Alex Jones guests.)

Well, it’ll be interesting to see how many protesters Klayman can smash together.  Over / under if he actually announces date and time… erm… 50?

March off from this possible solution to the problem that the nation elected Obama a couple of times, and into the weeds of “Secession Mania”…

Freaking Maryland.
A snarky snipe at Obama’s mis-speaks.  (Not quite accurate: the 57 state gaffe was done a remark of where he had campaigned before being a president.)  A belittling of the one statehood campaign that actually has some legitimacy.   (District of Columbia: Taxation without Representation!)   They bristle largely at the current not terribly interesting technocratic governor… and…

You know… the Colorado secessionists?  I would like to think the recent Recall (whatever I may think of it — I’m not big on recalls) would “chill” them out — like, a law you don’t like passes in this democratic republic… you have republican and democratic recourses to pursue.

And the Northern Californians have to sit by while the current governor — Jerry Brown — is hailed as the Greatest Governor Evah.  Whether they like it or not.

Eventually this “final straw” boiling over will dissolve and find its outlets.  Maybe they can run of these guys for their governors or presidents?
