Should Tennessee Reject Obama's Bailout?

Ken over at the Blue Collar Muse posed that question to House Majority Leader Jason Mumpower today, and it apparently is garnering quite a bit of attention.

Ken's correct on principle. For those of us who stand to gain from having borrowed money - that is, money borrowed from our sons and daughters and their sons and daughters - given to us to deny such money because it is wrong and illegitimate is what must happen in order for the conservative movement to mean anything besides a brand name that is bandied about every couple of years around election time.

As Ken points out, South Carolina and Mississippi are looking at saying "Thanks, but no thanks" to Washington, too. Is a secessionist movement afoot? I doubt it, but it would be revolutionary for politicians to tell the federal government that its borrowed money won't spend in the South anymore.
