    no, this is not a troll or a blatant click bait headline

    it is real, and it was aired on live TV by the American Lügenpresse....

    WATCH: Democrat Andrew Gillum Calls For Confederacy. CNN's Cuomo Loves It.

    quote:
    Florida Democratic gubernatorial nominee Andrew Gillum called for the formation of a confederacy on Wednesday during an appearance on CNN which drew praise from host Chris Cuomo, who said he had never "heard that before."

    quote:
    Imagine what the reaction from the media and the Democratic party would be like if a Republican would have called for a confederacy.

    We had the confederate of the states which brought on the civil war. The south could not live without their slaves.

    Confederacy is the same as United, since we are united, we need to have all state involved in the healthcare plan, mediciad for all, according to income.

    Forget the word play, READ what this moron is saying. He admits that Florida's health care system would collapse under his proposals so he says we need to involve ALL the states in his Socialist program. And what does that even mean? A country wide healthcare plan amongst the states? How would that even work? This guy is talking out of his ass. Read this crap:

    <<<<<
    Cuomo asked how Gillum would pay for his socialist agenda, noting that the "costs are crippling."

    "Well, let me tell you," Gillum replied. "I think for Florida to move in that direction, we would have to do it as a confederation of states. We could not do it by ourselves solely here in the state of Florida because it would collapse the system. We would only attract the sickest of patients and it wouldn't work."
