Tom Head might have been remembering the Alamo this week, or perhaps there is really no explanation for the Texas county judge’s suggestion that a revolution or a civil war might come from President Obama’s re-election.
Judge Head suggested to a local Fox affiliate that the town of Lubbock needed extra tax dollars to boost law enforcement resources in the event of an uprising after Obama’s potential second term began.
“He’s going to try to hand over sovereignty of the United States to the U.N.,” said Head. “We’re not just talking a few riots here and demonstrations, we’re talking Lexington, Concord, take up arms and get rid of the guy.”
Head even said he might join the resistance. So an elected judge from Texas is arguing for a tax increase, to help local government hold off an armed resistance he might join, because of a conspiracy involving Obama and the U.N.? Somebody check Tom Head’s head—he might be suffering from heat stroke.
