If Texas leaves the union, my husband and I will move there in a heartbeat or quicker.

Why soil his dignity and occupy the White Hut? He can be the first President of the newly re-constituted Republic of Texas.
Just let me in before they close the gates!
Yes, this is idiotic and it is never going to happen.
Further, within another generation Republicans/conservatives will have a hard time winning even Texas due to the explosion of Democratic voting Hispanics.
You might want to find another state if you are thinking long term.
I vote for The Republic of Texas. My ancestors were here back then and I would be thrilled to live to see it again.
And I say; Good for him.
Yeah, good luck with 40% Hispanic population and growing rapidly, the Republic of Texas will be the Republica de Nuevo Texas, a budding banana republic or a Mexican drug proxy. And that is a big if... Obama will be the new Lincoln after crushing Texas’ secession.
As a Texan I can say, the reason why Dewhurst did not get elected as senator was PERRY!! The two of them are big spending anti-Tea Party Rinos. Perry was a democrat till Bush was elected govenor. Our tax rate is in the middle of the country because of fees and crap that are hidden in the Tx cost of doing business. Our property taxes are off the chart. School Kids get the same liberal crap as those in Calif or Mass. /another post election rant
Thanks to mass immigration, Texas will be a battleground state within a few more election cycles.
Once enough conservatives have had enough of blue-state B.S., their emigration to TX will easily offset the demographic explosion of Hispanic Donkey voters. Texas could become a gigantic Galt’s Gulch, and could incorporate OK, LA, and other states as well. Then the libs in the rump states can go pound sand.
NO NO NO....
Secession talk is for quitters. It’s an easy out.
It’s like saying, I don’t want to be part of the USA anymore, but I don’t want to pick up and move away.
F*** that kind of talk. We’re Americans. Alone, Texas would fall. And without Texas, SO/SW US is a failure. Better together, that’s Texas and the US.
Besides...I haven’t perfected my brisket yet. Still need your compadres to help me out :-)
Sam Houston once said that Texas can make it without America, but America can’t make it without Texas.
Rush asked a question earlier this week: If we split the nation along the Mississippi and gave the east to the liberals and the west to conservatives, how long would it be before the liberals were digging tunnels into the west?
there comes a time when a marriage cannot be saved, I am said to say. Texas, unfortunately, has an abusive, alcoholic spouse. It is past time for a divorce. The thing is, I really don’t see the northeast or west coast being interested is stopping us - I figure they will be glad to see us go - and so would we. Someone in Texas government needs to start serious talks along these lines, negotiate the divorce, and let’s end this thing.
When Texas chose to join the union, we did not sign up for a suicide pact. America has broken her contract with Texas, it’s time for us to negotiate an agreed departure.
As both a Texan and one who loves the beauty of the principles of our republic as founded, I have mixed feelings about secession. It would be a cataclysmic undertaking, and could be disastrous. That said, I think Texas is the one state with the large enough population, diversified economy, and natural resources to make it as a separate sovereign state.
Heck, we will all be able to move down to Mehico before too long as there won’t be anybody left down there except a few drug lords and crooked politicians / policemen.
I would rather support him leading the Red states to secede. This election has proven that people who believe in and follow the rule of law have no voice and no place among the Democrats' rule by thugs, gangs and criminals who have NO regard for the rule of law. As for 2016, let's see how the next year or two go before we start making any plans.
Texas, by itself, would be comparable to Australia. A little larger in population, a little small economy (about 14th). We have oil, natural gas, high tech, agriculture. It would be very viable as a stand alone country. And it would be growing very fast with business friendly policies.
Of course, we would have a few friends who would like to tag along, I’m thinking OK for one. Add up a few contiguous states and we would have a very powerful country well into the top 10 and fast growing.
“Frankly, I would support getting a coalition behind Gov. Perry for 2016 to take back the White House”
In a New York minute. I would give up everything I own. He was our guy. I donated to his campaign. When the good conservatives ridiculed him and chose not to support him in South Carolina and he dropped out,I supported Romney with all my heart.I donated to his campaign. When the good conservatives spat and turned their backs and chose not support him nationally, I went into a state of depression and there I remain reading all the sick excuses from those who deserted the cause for a cause of their own so that Obama could stroll back in. I would give the last days of my life if Rick could lead us out of this abyss for the sake of future generations. I confess to being a drama queen. I’m sure we would never leave the union but if we did, there would suddenly be a lot of believers in work and Mitt’s plan. The Little Red Hen. They probably would even want to follow. Anyway, not in my lifetime.
