At least that's one conclusion that can be reached from the words of Tennessee Rep. Zach Wamp, a candidate for governor in the Volunteer state.
Judge for yourself. Here's the story:
Rep. Zach Wamp suggested [Tennessee] and other states may have to consider seceding from the union if the federal government does not change its ways regarding mandates.
"I hope that the American people will go to the ballot box in 2010 and 2012 so that states are not forced to consider separation from this government," said Wamp during an interview with Hotline OnCall.
