When do we pack?!?
There goes any shot at the presidency. This will be used against him for sure.
I was there. Perry had some good “pep” talk but no particulars. I would have loved to hear him say “Here is what I have told Obama and here is what I will tell Obama and here are specifics as to how I’m going to govern Texas toward small government and liberty”. But, no — just platitudes.
I think he has seized on the 10th amendment states’ rights issue as “red meat” that will get him re-elected, and he may be right.
Can we trust him to make it more than just talk? I’m not convinced yet. But I “hope”.
Let’s roll. It’s time.
THE TEXAS CONSTITUTION
ARTICLE 1. BILL OF RIGHTS
Sec. 1. FREEDOM AND SOVEREIGNTY OF STATE. Texas is a free and independent State, subject only to the Constitution of the United States, and the maintenance of our free institutions and the perpetuity of the Union depend upon the preservation of the right of local self-government, unimpaired to all the States.
Sec. 2. INHERENT POLITICAL POWER; REPUBLICAN FORM OF GOVERNMENT. All political power is inherent in the people, and all free governments are founded on their authority, and instituted for their benefit. The faith of the people of Texas stands pledged to the preservation of a republican form of government, and, subject to this limitation only, they have at all times the inalienable right to alter, reform or abolish their government in such manner as they may think expedient.
Well, you know what they say.
“Secession is good, clean fun until somebody tries to take your property away.”
Sounds like Perry is really trying to hard to secure the conservative base for his primary challenge from KBH.
Well DHS better update their right-wing extremism document and include the entire state of Texas. LOL.
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.
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...
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.
I will move back to Texas if the secede... yes I will!
