Well, of course the "idea" that Gov. Rick Perry likes the idea of succession or speaks of seceding with relish has to become "truth" because the MSM wants to make it "reality" in the voters minds that 1.) Rick Perry is a racist. 2.) That Eric Holder should deny Texas their newly passed Photo Voter ID (1965 Voters Right Act "concerns" don't you know). 3) Rick Perry is stupid and doesn't understand history or doesn't care about it what with all that "swagger."

Stringent Texas voter ID law means changes at Texas polls "It’s still unclear what happens after that. Whenever the state Legislature passes a measure that affects voting or changes the mechanisms by which a Texan casts a ballot, a provision of the federal Voting Rights Act allows the U.S. Department of Justice or the federal courts to review the law. That process is pending. The Texas Secretary of State filed its request for pre-clearance with the Department of Justice last month, and a response is expected in September. If the department rules that the bill will not adversely affect voter turnout, opponents of the measure are likely to file litigation to halt the measure." Voter ID laws in TX, GA, SC (history of voting rights discrimination) concern Dems

Perry was simply pointing out what most Texans know from infancy, and are known to boast modestly about from time to time when talking to folks from foreign lands like New York and California.

Then most Texans, including the author of this article, are pretty dumb. There isn't a Constitutional expert in the country who would agree that Texas somehow has rights denied other states. And that includes leaving without the consent of the other states.

The nomination is Perry's to lose. Let's just hope no clever reporter asks him a real toughie such as , “what do you read?” That could end his chances for good!

Here's a speech from a Texas Tea Party event in which Gov. Perry alludes to secession. He was quoting Sam Houston for one thing.

Governor Perry - Texas Secession

I can't imagine any conservative listening to this speech and not believing this is a sincere, authentic and bold Conservative leader.

Nice post, but an historical nit: Freemantle did not reach Lee’s headquarters until June 22, 1863, two days after that year’s equinox and therefore, early summer.

Perry needs to do a campaign commercial about this. He needs to have a plain spoken Texan saying “They lie to you. They lie to you all the time. They take what a man says completely out of context and make it seem like he said something else. They think we’re too dumb to know the difference. Well, at one time we may have been too busy to pay attention, but with the way our economy is now, believe me we’re paying attention now.” and then show the whole comments, on several things, pausing at what they say he said, and then completing the sentence. Finish it up with “We’re sick of being lied to.”

Presuming your boy Perry was smart enough to make sure the photo-id bill was IDENTICAL to Governor Mitch Daniels photo-id bill, it will pass CONSTITUTIONAL MUSTER, and that's all it's got to do.

In the meantime the arch criminal and traitor Eric "Fast and Furious" Holder has less than two years in office ~ and then it's prison time!

When we came into the union in 1845, one of the issues was that we would be able to leave it if we decided to do that.”

It may very well have been an issue when negotiations were ongoing about admitting Texas to the Union. There were probably a lot of other issues that came up too, doesn't mean Texas got everything it wanted.

Found this site that might be of interest regarding Texas and some common misconceptions.

Upstate NYers have been talking about secession for years, though not from the union, just from Downstate :-)

Gov. Perry Issues Proclamation Recognizing Texas First Responders Day

Sunday, September 11, 2011 • Austin, Texas •

Proclamation

On a Tuesday morning 10 years ago, we watched in horror as terrorists hìjacked four of our commercial airliners, attacked the United States and killed nearly 3,000 civilians on our soil. Two thousand miles away from that attack, 73 emergency response professionals in Central Texas - members of the Texas Task Force i, the state's elite search team - were among the first to respond to the call for help with search-and-rescue operations.

In the aftermath, we witnessed heroic rescue efforts, a surge of patriotism and a display of great dignity. People at home and abroad rallied together in support, proudly flying American flags in unity and reverence. We rose above the ashes with courage and compassion. Our country demonstrated an optimism that no attack could weaken.

The Texas Legislature has designated September 11 of every year to be Texas First Responders Day to honor emergency aid professionals. As we remember the parents, children, brothers and sisters whose lives were tragically cut short by these attacks, let us also acknowledge the men and women who bravely stepped up to serve following those attacks.

THEREFORE, I urge all Texans to honor the profound sacrifices and dedication of our peace officers, firefighters and emergency medical responders. Every day here in Texas, they answer the call for help and offer invaluable services that bring relief and comfort during the worst of circumstances. First Lady Anita Peny joins me in extending our deep gratitude to them on this day and every day.

THEREFORE, I, Rick Perry, Govemor of Texas, do hereby proclaim September 11 ,2011, to be

Texas First Responders Day

in Texas, and urge the appropriate recognition whereof.

In official recognition whereof, I hereby affix my signature this the 6th day of September, 2011,.

RICK PERRY
Governor of Texas

OFFICE OF THE GOVERNOR

To protect Obama, they’ll use the race card against anyone including Herman Cain.

But you would think the former Al Gore supporter from Austin had read Jonathan Swift’s modest proposal for ending the Irish potato famine and cried “Eureaka!” in admiring response.

Tascott needs to study spelling, history, and literature. (Please tell me he's a lib.)

Dean Swift wrote "A Modest Proposal For Preventing the Children of Poor People in Ireland, from Being a Burden on Their Parents or Country, and for Making Them Beneficial to the Publick" in 1729. He died in 1745.

The Potato Famine began in 1845, one hundred years after Swift's death.

Oh, and Talcott misspelled "Eureka." That's a lot of ignorance to put on exhibit in a single sentence.

And I guess I should add that he either can't use a spell-check or believes he doesn't make mistakes.

The "Editorial Page Editor" apparently altered the original article to remove a repeated phrase ("who two years ago who two years ago"). However, the editor missed "when we came into the union in 1845" ("Union" should have been capitalized there and later). And "Perry was just indulging a familiar Texas past time of boasting" should have been edited to "indulging in" and "pastime."

From there, the article -- and the editing -- continued downhill (mostly funky capitalization and punctuation). Please tell me Talcott and his editor are libs.

IF you'd rather NOT be pinged FReepmail me.

IF you'd like to be added FReepmail me. Thanks.

********************************************************************************

When members of Hood’s Texas Brigade “marched” past the reviewing stand, Fremantle, who knew of the unit’s amazing effectiveness as shock troops, was puzzled by what he saw and exclaimed: “Why General Lee, these men hardly have shirts on their backs.”

To which Lee replied: “That’s okay, Colonel. The enemy never sees the backs of my Texans.”

I like Perry, and I think he will trounce the O, when the time comes. I believe he is a principled conservative...even if not perfect. Certainly more conservative than the last Texan we put in the White House.

My Dad is a native-born Texan. I lived in Texas for my college freshman year. Yes, it is a unique state—in that its citizens think it is unique, even though I can’t for the life of me understand why...as the land itself seems mostly flat, hot, dry and dull. Still I’m glad we have Texas and Texans.

On Texas secession however, didn’t Texas try that once already? How’d that turn out for y’all?
