Posted on 08/28/2009 7:05:58 PM PDT by MinorityRepublican
Fiercely independent and thoroughly horrified at the blatantly unconstitutional explosion of federal tyranny into every aspect of our lives, Texans are set to march on the state capitol in droves on Saturday. They will be delivering a million-strong petition to their elected officials based on the 10th Amendment, demanding an immediate constitutional confrontation with Washington.
If they are turned away or their concerns inadequately addressed, organizer Gerry Donaldson says they "will be forced to call for a vote for secession." This will not be the last time a state openly defies Obama's treasonous war on the Constitution.
Donaldson, who runs his own Internet radio show, says they are "calling for an orderly process that will allow our federal government to fall back in line with the Constitution." He continued, "Either we will restore America, we will live in a Marxist dictatorship, or we will secede and start over again."

Count me in.
We even have the outline for a proposed new constitution:
Read it and weap you non-Texans!
Secede and I’m moving there.
Go Texas. The war is coming, and I want to be amongst some good shots.
Oh, if you need a good fighter pilot type to patrol for Pelosi’s plane, please let me know after I move.
Arizona seconds that motion
I served there in the AF for four years and voted absentee in TX for 20 years. Would like to be counted in.
Texas tried this once before and it didn’t exactly work out.
Fresh air from the heart of TExas.
We've been researching, and are verrrry disappointed to learn that Texas is even more confiscatory - bigtime - than Taxifornia regarding property taxes......that's a deal killer right there...............so, in that regard, your tax happy state is safe from usurpers.
Where do I apply for my Texas passport?
But Texas has no state income taxes. I don’t know if it all evens out compared to California.
Secede and I will be moving from Vermont to Helotes , Bexar County in the Republic of Texas.
I won’t have to wear one of those big funny cowboy hats, will I?
Maybe but no income taxes and sales taxes are generally less than anywhere in CA. I’m a Texan but lived in CA for eight years in the ‘90s.
Ping for later.
So how does Texas fund its expenditures? Property taxes?
Not if you don't mind getting your ears, neck and nose sunburned... ;-)
But -- if you do wear one, you'll have to wear it indoors, too... '-)
