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!"
Actually, if you don't like the weather, wait five minutes. It'll change.
Todd Palin can run the alaskan secession movement and Sarah-cuda the presidency of Alaska.
I will move back to Texas if the secede... yes I will!
Infested with Mexicans....
And rattlesnakes, fire ants, tornadoes, rednecks......you don’t want to move here
If you are not infested with entitlement minded lazy liberals and actually stand for something, oh yes I do. I have huge bugs, alligators, nasty snakes AND my state voted blue for the first time ever. I am a redneck, we all got fire ants in the south now, and FL has the most tornadoes of any state (little known fact) just not the big ones like tornado alley gets, and we are LOADED with illegals here. At least you got TEXANS in TEXAS!!
LOL, go west young man. We will welcome you.
Yep. Lets do it.
“I don’t love their weather but I’d think of moving.”
Yep. My aunt lives in Texas and she does mention how HOT it is down there from time to time. I wonder if that’s pretty much consistent all over the state. (It gets hot enough here in Tennessee for me. One year, it was as hot in August here as it was in Texas - just about.)
I'm an Aggie and I agree. He's running to the right of where he's governed because his opponent shows RINO tendencies. He figured having better hair wasn't enough.
I really doubt we'd secede, but I love talking about it. I may even change my tagline to, "If at first you don't secede, try, try again."
While my company chokes on the franchise tax, imagine a Republic of Texas with no personal income tax?
Hey, how about this? Imagine a law where you lose your Texas citizenship if you play college football out of state, er, country?
>I will move back to Texas if they secede...
I’m right there with you LLS - and you can take that to the bank.
Actually, we've got a solution to the heat. It's called AIR CONDITIONING!
I know, I know, President HopeyChangey doesn't like it and wants to control our thermostats. Well, Texas is the headquarters of Lennox International (Lennox, Armstrong, Ducane, Air-Flo...located in Richardson), Trane's residential operations (Trane, American Standard...Tyler), and Goodman (Goodman, Amana...Houston). Goodman's actually become the nation's best selling brand.
One of the most said saying here.
Funny you should mention that.....
I heard Chuck Norris on Glenn Beck’s radio show several weeks ago, and he (Chuck) half-jokingly mentioned that he was thinking of running for President of Texas!
How about "If at first you don't secede, elect a different governor."
Wherebouts ? I like wide open and empty, but not too hot. I'd miss snow, too.
My forebears fought and died for the Confederate States of America and I am a native born Texan, currently a resident of Montana. If Texas does secede from the Union, I will pack my bags.
They said that about Sam Houston with regards to Mexico, too.
Thing is, Texas has a strange way of bringing out successes in otherwise total failures. He was a failure at life, a drunkard, had no success with women, and both his early and late life were total disasters. But for one brief shining moment, he was the right man in the right place at the right time to kick Santa Ana’s ass.
Much of Texas history is dotted with men who were failures elsewhere who came here and became great successes.
We have lots of room up in the panhandle.
As for too hot, that’s why God gave us air conditioning and nuclear reactors.
