We’ve known for a long time now that Rushpubliscums (and right wingers in general) live in some kind of an alternate reality, a place where their policies are actually successful, and they, themselves, aren’t mud fence stupid. Those of us who have been watching them and listening to them for years have often wondered just how complete the disconnect from reality is for a lot of them.
Wonder no more. Check out Randi Shannon’s new position if you have any doubts as to how far gone they are.
A Republican state Senate candidate in Iowa has decided to bow out of the race and become a U.S. senator of an alternative form of government.
In a letter released Friday, Randi Shannon informs supporters of her new position as “U.S. Senator in the Republic of the United States of America.” You see, according to Shannon, the U.S. government has been acting unlawfully as the “‘official government,’ which clearly it is not!”
The libertarian-leaning group she joined claims it “re-inhabited” the government on March 30, 2010. The group claims the “United States Corporation” unlawfully formed in 1871 without the American people’s consent. “Since 1871, the abuses of this corporation upon both the international community as well as the American people are inestimable and unconscionable,” the group’s website claims.
In her announcement letter, Shannon outlined her political plans. As someone who home schooled her own children, Shannon supports abolishing the Department of Education. She opposes unnecessary foreign wars. She believes life begins at conception. And she blames government abuse, invasive TSA screenings, “Obamacare,” and the 14th amendment on the corrupt “United States Corporation.”
So…. Randi has been in her house, curtains drawn, for Dog knows how long, indoctrinating “home skoolin” her children, who are by now as insane as she is. And to prove how wedded she is to the fantasy land she’s created and schooled her children in, now she’s going to be a HIGH LEVEL OFFICIAL of her self-created “vapor-state.”
Suddenly, North Korea looks like a sane and reasonable place, doesn’t it?
