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.
Fellow Texan here. I remember learning about TX right to secede.
Texas history was my very favorite subject.
I am a mid-westerner by birth, but have lived most of my adult life in Texas. At heart, I consider myself a Texan. Now that I have a really great job, we are looking at relocating back to Texas in 5-7 years. As for now, we are Texans-in-excile due to family and job.
God Bless Texas, their values reflect mine. Let me defend my home with lethal force, and let me defend my neighbor’s home with the same force, too. Any state that lets me blast the bad guys with impunity, is a state I want to be a member of.
AMERICAN BY BIRTH,TEXAN BY CHOICE!
