Basically, the way I see things, whether it be by accident or design, this bill is an utter mess, written by a lot of characters having a long wishlist with no real coordination involved - a whole bunch of mud thrown furiously at a wall. I'm pretty sure that a lot of stuff in it can and will be struck down, yanked out and so forth, but am also sure the commiecrats are expecting that, which they may hope will provide some theatre for political cover. But the fact is going to remain that they're going to get the framework passed and installed - that is the anchor on which all can be built upon and tweaked over time, at their leisure. I can see a lot of extraneous minutia getting tossed, but never the base framework - that'll be here to stay.

This is particularly interesting in light of this article that was published in the American Spectator in December of 2009:

Soros Eyes Secretaries (of State)

I'm wondering how many of the 32 Secretaries of State in the D column are die hard libs who would stand for Party over state and country.

The use fasces by the House of Representatives pre-dates the Fascist ideology. It was a reference, popular in the early 18th century, to the principles of ancient Roman republicanism. By your screen name you should be know that the Roman Republic was founded when they expelled King Tarquin the Proud and created a republic based upon annually elected co-counsels, a senate and assemblies of the people.

If Texas secedes, I’m moving there. Any recommendations for locations?

North Texas (Dallas - Ft Worth and surrounding) is the boomingest place in the state, hence, the nation.

You might not want to wait til secession, though. We might close the borders by then.

The Mo bill is a constitutional amendment which will be on the ballot for the people of Mo. to vote on in November. It had bi-partisan support in the House.

Mega dittos. In fact, I just had an inspection today on a house I’m buying in district 22, Delay’s old district and now Pete Olsen’s. I’ve been in a pro Obama district and just couldn’t take it any more.

Yes sir, time to expel the Proud Kenyan and create a Republic where only taxpayers and veterans have the vote.

These commies would be SOL.

They would have to take our money at gunpoint instead of just voting themselves it.

That’s right. 38 is the magic number for the Codification and Constitutionalisation of the so-called ‘Nullification’ doctrine as embodied in the Kentucky-Virginia Resolutions.

That’s the real Holy Grail that wipes out ALL of the Progressive legislation of the past 100 years.

Contrary to popular belief Texas can not secede from the Union.

Despite what any piece of parchment declares, a people have a God given right of association - or disassociation, as the case may be.

That being said, I don't advocate dissolution of the union. I'd rather see the states stand up to the federal government and put them back in their rightful (limited gov't) place.

I was a delegate to the Harris County Senatorial Convention yesterday and AG Abbott addressed us via video and said he would sue the federal government if this thing passes.

I was a delegate at the Collin County Senatorial Convention yesterday, and although we didn't get the video address from the AG, the list of resolutions we voted on are pure patriot gold. I was very proud to be a part of it.

Orange County might object, so maybe it would have to be carved out in a new Orange Free State.

Friend, there are a lot more red counties in California, than blue. If you want to carve out just the red parts, you'd wind up with most of the state intact.

Get outside California's major population centers, and it's a lot like any other flyover country in the nation.

The Romans were able to keep their republic for 500 years. It failed when power hungry politicians seeking support from the poor promised to spread the wealth. Constitutional conventions were ignored which lead both sides to resort to force to advance their interests. After a generation of civil wars the republic was in shatters, being replaced by a military dictatorship we know as the empire. Pray that we do not follow the same course.

California is the state that gave us Ronald Reagan and Free Republic. I say we take it back from the rats, rather than give it to the Chicoms.

As a native Californian, I thank you for injecting that bit of pure common sense into this conversation.

Dallas proper is solid blue these days, but just north of Dallas County is Collin County, which is still conservatively red. It’s one of the fastest growing areas of the country, and where you want to be, if you’re thinking of moving to this region.

Better to fall back, let the place collapse with the rats eating each other, then advance and retake it.

Yeah, we definitely gotta work on that.

I'd like to see our legislature do what Oklahoma's did, and cut the illegals off from every form of gov't assistance. They self-deported in a huge wave before the OK Governor could even sign the bill into law.

Take away every advantage to being here, and we won't have to have more than the occasional trooper on the southern border to stop illegals. The narco gangs are another story...

That’s likely their Governor driving that action... face it, if this bill increases costs for a state they have to go against it.

Arizona - "As the U.S. House of Representatives prepares for what may be its final vote on a health care bill, Republican Gov. Jan Brewer and Democratic Rep. Kyrsten Sinema sounded off on the contentious proposal. Brewer, who earlier in the day signed a bill that will strip more than 310,000 Arizonans of Medicaid coverage while taking 47,000 children off of KidsCare, stood in front of the old Capitol building on March 18 and railed against a health care bill that she said will add $4 billion to the state’s overstretched budget."
