Perry “took it back” to keep from upsetting all the Uhaul noobTexans. We know he thinks about “it” just like real Texan’s do.
Secession isn’t a good public subject because of the the personal “followers” one would collect. By no means does that mean its not often thought about.
Secession is not something that we would “ask” the Feds if we can do. It will not come as a line in the sand declartation rather by continuing to push our 10th Amendment Rights, having to protect our own International border and refusing to take edicts from the likes of the EPA or nobamacare and the Feds being stupid enough to keep pushing.
all true with one exception. Perry was never serious and was aghast that anyone would think him serious.
