Default SC Republican Fiercely Opposes "North American Union" and the "Amero"

Quote:
Witherspoon has made immigration one of the cornerstones of his campaign, but has also tied it to his fierce opposition to a "North American Union," which would merge the United States, Canada and Mexico into one political and economic entity.
Legitimate Senate Campaign Issue Or 'Internet Rumor'?

Of course, here is the snopes article.

Maybe this can be the GOP's new slogan:

"The Republican Party: Protecting YOU from ficticious threats!"

Good to see that my old home state still has no connection with reality.

My old home state, too. To quote another message board: "Ah. South Carolina. Too small to be a nation. Too large to be an insane asylum."

And I used to date a guy with the same last name. I clicked on the link praying "oh please oh please don't let it be [name redacted]." Thank goodness.

And that might be a small but significant reason why that district hasn't been represented by a Democrat since the 1930s. Since that guy sounds like he's trying to out-Bush Bush on some issues, just as well.
