If we had a real conservative governor we’d seceed. I doubt the former united states could push the Republic of Texas around much since they’d need our oil.

This is how you test what your governor is made of. He has the duty to throw the EPA out for gross disrespect for state sovereignty.

But what’s he going to do? This is a really big deal. Especially after saying it’s a power grab. His statement doesn’t really leave much room for compromise so what’s he going to do? Spin it as a campaign issue?

I lived in Dallas for 12 years and didn’t notice a smog problem.

When you lived there, carbon dioxide was not an EPA recognized pollutant. Can't see it, can't smell it, can't taste it, but you better believe they can regulate it.

That air pollution issue is just an interstate commerce canard. Air pollution can be sourced and “damages” can be handled in courts.

We’re better off with a slow, thoughtful, careful response through tort law than a single, all-powerful federal agency.

We have to get the Left the Hell out of our government, a monumental task to put it lightly, and defund every single Leftist bureaucracy.

Yes I know that’s going to be called racist, but we have to get rid of those bureaucracies, those Leftist bastions of mischief completely, or kiss this Nation good bye.

It’s the bureaucracies that perpetuate the Leftist base, and allow them momentum.

One side is determined to direct us and our economy centrally. They view their movement as a revolutionary movement. They are lead by a man with an extensive muslim and socialist background from a Communist party family.

The other side is composed of Americans who wish to be left alone to follow the orginal American constitution and belief in personal liberty .

One side must give up their belief, or it can only end in violence. Most likely they will try to use force to enforce a future outrage, and will encounter violent resistance.

I agree, and have been steadily preparing. Hopefully, once the issue has come to a head and is resolved, we can go back to the constitution and perhaps pass an amendment permanently forbidding entitlements and marxism, so to speak.

Sadly Americans voted this Marxist regime into power.

NO, NO. Those suckers that voted for this regime were NOT Americans!

Fatal mistake: They didn’t get the guns first.

Waters responded, in part, "And guess what this liberal would be all about. This liberal will be about socializing … uh, um. …"

The congresswoman paused to collect her thoughts.

"Would be about, basically, taking over, and the government running all of your companies. …"

Maybe we need to use a new acronym: AINO (Americans in Name Only).
