1. Rachel Will Go Down As An American Treasure

I saw this last night. It was very informative as well as scary. There is something going on in this country and it reeks of fascism.

2. "Fascism" is a silly-ass word.

"Tyranny" is the word you want.

6. I have said this before and I'll say it again:

United States Constituion, Article 4, Section 4:

The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion . . .

President Obama should send federal troops into Michigan and restore the democratically elected city governments and school boards that have been taken over by the governor's dictators. The people of Michigan, at least those who live in those areas under dictatorial control, are being denied a republic form of government.

8. Republicans are disgusting.

They will be exporting this shit to other states as fast as possible and the Justice Dept will do nothing.

11. Re-listening to this segment it makes me wonder could the citizens in those towns "taken over" by

the governor's person. (I forget the name given to them) Are they able to vote in state elections? What about national? This might sound crazy but any time I voted I've always seen a ballot where city state and (when in the season) National election.


Can these people actually vote in the upcoming election? Has there been elections for state senators and Congressman(U.S. congress) What about representatives in the Actual Michigan state government?

12. Why hasn't this thread gotten more attention here?

This is a real blockbuster. Michigan Republicans are governing outside of the law. Everything they've done in the past year could be called in to question. Some of them should be in jail. This should be a very big deal.
