Pennsylvania Patriots Prepare for New Nation, Under God

(Gettysburg, PA) -- A groundswelling majority of Pennsylvanians, incensed by Obama's accusation that Keystone Staters ignorantly "cling to guns or religion", is forming its own nation, The Republic of Pennsylvania, One Nation Under God.

"If (Obama) doesn't want us, fine, we'll leave", exclaimed grass roots organizer Benjamin Henry.

Henry began assembling citizens immediately following Obama's inciting early April statement about clinging Pennsylvanians who exhibit "antipathy to people unlike them".

Feeling disenchanted by the nation's apparent direction, Henry and former Senate campaigner Thomas Franklin began the framework for the new nation.

"We will start over. Build a new nation, different from our current country. It will be one nation under God, with liberty and justice for all" exclaimed Franklin.

"We conceived the notion, and will put in place the practice that all people are created equal, and thus we will declare unlawful all forms of racial discrimination including slavery and affirmative action.

"Furthermore, it will be the Right of our citizens to alter or to abolish the government, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form."

When informed of Pennsylvania's plan during his visit to Afghanistan, Obama called the movement "a radical, absurd example of Americans run amuck, exhibiting antipathy for those that don't agree with the American way."
