I always got a lot of laughs while watching Jeff Foxworthy with his routine, "You Might Be A Redneck." You've all heard some of his "You might be a redneck:"
You get the idea, I'm sure.
Well, Veracity Stew has printed out a "You might be..." of it's own. Only this one is the "You might be an extremist" test. Here's a sampling:
YOU MIGHT BE A POLITICAL EXTREMIST IF:

Looks like Texas wants it mostest.
Just a week after President Barack Obama was re-elected, a petition by Texans for the right to secede from the rest of the country has garnered some 64,000 signatures, many more than the 25,000 signature threshold needed to get a response from the Obama administration.
The petition was made on the government's "We the People" petitioning web site, along with secession petitions from at least 18 other states.
The Texas petition to "peacefully" secede has gained by far the most traction of any state, citing "economic difficulties" related to the actions of the federal government in Texas, and "blatant abuses" of Texans' rights by the National Defense Authorization Act and Transportation Security Administration.
But it's hard to run for President again in 2016 if you've also pumped up secession.
(CNN) – An appeal calling on the federal government to allow Texas to "withdraw from the United States of America" following President Barack Obama's re-election doesn't have the support of the Lone Star State's governor, his office said in a statement Tuesday.
"Gov. [Rick] Perry believes in the greatness of our Union and nothing should be done to change it," his press secretary Catherine Frazier wrote in a statement to the Dallas Morning News. "But he also shares the frustrations many Americans have with our federal government."
Pertinent part is at 1:35. My folks lived in Homestead for many years, it can be a very redneck area. But there still is no excuse. Via the always on top of it Mediaite.
It's really not good to laugh this hard before coffee. (With a cartoon to go with it no less!!)

I was going to go all "What's the matter with Florida", but I know better. Most of Florida is rural Alabama south, with small areas of Sun City Retirement Communities, so you have yokels who don't believe in government vs doddering elders afraid their government entitlements will be taken away. Gah.
TALLAHASSEE -- In a state where 20 percent of the population is uninsured, Florida voters are opposed to a major Democratic plan to provide more health care coverage, according to a Miami Herald/St. Petersburg Times/Bay News 9 poll.
About 47 percent oppose the so-called "public option," while 40 percent support the proposal to provide a government-run insurance plan.
Voters opposed the public option in every area of the state except one: South Florida. There, 54 percent favor the proposal and only 37 percent are opposed. The area with the strongest opposition: Southwest Florida, where 30 percent support the proposal and 50 percent oppose it.
