AUSTIN, Texas Texas Gov. Rick Perry fired up an anti-tax "tea party" Wednesday with his stance against the federal government and for states' rights as some in his U.S. flag-waving audience shouted, "Secede!"
Well DHS better update their right-wing extremism document and include the entire state of Texas. LOL.
He’s not a conservative either.
I tell everyone I know, (even though I LIVE in Kentucky):
I am a TEXAN first, AMERICAN second.
Bavarians, from Germany, really relate to that.
Having grown up in Texas, I can tell you this.. we were ALL taught in school that, when Texas joined the US, we retained the right to secede.. or, to split into a total of Five states. We were even shown the lines proposed for the new states.
Either option would be OK with me. But, if they decide to secede... I will move HOME immediately.
Not sure how far this will go but it's really getting interesting.
Chuck Norris for President of Texas!
If Perry promises to kick all the Libs out.. it’s a done deal.. I’m there!
If this is who he is all the time and about other important issues, such as the ones that make Napolitano wet her pants, we might be ready for another President from Texas.
Well it never stopped Jefferson Davis did it?
Perry and Palin should team up, and lead their states out of the union. Being the biggest energy producing states, they would have the US over a barrel.
Trying to look at houses in Texas on Lycos Real Estate, slowed to a crawl. Wonder why...
abolish or limit...sounds good to me.
My husband and I have already discussed this. If Texas secedes, we’re moving. I can do that without losing my job, because I’m a teleworker, and he’s disabled and not working.
Bet Perry would lose his nerve if it came right down to TX leaving the Union. Legislators, too. Takes courage.
they will be shown the door.
I will move there.....haven't been there in 34 years but I will vote with my feet to defend FREEDOM
There are places in Texas where property is very cheap. Most of them are in the boonies, in fly-over country.
I know, I live there.
And rattlesnakes, fire ants, tornadoes, rednecks......you don't want to move here.
Rick Perry is NOT presidential material.
Like that stops 'em from winning?
Politician taking advantage of the moment.
There’s too muck in Slick Rick’s record to believe him now. He’s just an Aggie Yell Leader running scared of a tu Cheerleader.
