I know many on this site will look at this and think it is one more crackpot talking nonsense.. That may not be entirely wrong, but I am not a crackpot, and my attitude is shared by too many intelligent folks that are entirely fed-up with the direction we are going..
Texas is suffering from our own success.. We are attracting the disaffected millions, from failed governments around the country, to our state because of our business friendly atmosphere, low taxation, low costs, great weather, and great opportunities..
All of that would be fine, if the newcomers would leave their failed liberal political views behind, which they obviously won't do.. There may not be much time before we are overrun with morons with enough numbers to risk the future.. Secession may be the only solution, if it is a solution at all..
I seek your comments..
” think it is one more crackpot talking nonsense”
You aren’t just any crockpot to us, Carlo. You are one of our favorite crackpots.
I think that was tried about 150 years ago... Didn’t turn out so well then...
It is not part of "The Federal Government".
If Texas leaves the union it will get another crackpot, ME!
I fear the shoe is close to fitting, however, how would I know if I’m already nuts?? jus sayin.. LOL
Sam Houston was right.
While I can't demonstrate it as a fact, I predict the possibility of Texas seceding from the Union in the next 50 years as somewhere south of "slim" and "none".
If you could get everyone in Texas to refuse to pay any more taxes to Washington, there’s a starting point. Starve the beast.
I hear you, but it has popped up at late as 2012 again, and I have looked everywhere to see concrete evidence that it cannot be done.. If anyone can point me to definitive evidence that is is not legal, I'll go take my nap.. LOL
Any state that seriously shows it is going to secede will get any and all support I can lend. If it is Texas, just tell me where I need to send money to help in the fight while I get my affairs in order to move there.
The whole country is going to hell in a hand-basket.
Semantics, I’m looking for proof.. Can you add anything?
I believe Texas can secede and if she decides to, I’m 100% behind her. This country has done gone crazy and the good people of Texas are sick of it.
Yeah, great weather. Can’t get to my car, couldn’t open it if I could (frozen shut) and couldn’t drive on the roads if I could get it started. LOL
OK Kip, another opinion, great, but what are the facts.. I’m serious!
Tell me about it. The liberal infestation in the Denver/Boulder area is ruining Colorado. There has been serious talk about splitting Colorado in two, with the liberals forming Calirado where they can (re)try all those wonderful liberal things that are destroying California.
I'm hoping that when his final term as Sheriff of El Paso County is up, Mr. Maketa will take a run at Governor...
You know, this kind of thing is proof that liberals are slow learners - if they can learn at all. It is awfully hard to drive any facts into their skulls past the feel-good indoctrination. They get power, their big-government socialist policies trash a place (city, county, state, or country) turning it into a miserable hellhole... Then they see someplace next door that is wonderful, prosperous, free (as in freedom)...so they go there because it is an attractive place to live and work. But then they start trying to change things, to "improve" things...and the cycle starts all over again. Pretty soon the place is a miserable, over-taxed over-regulated hellhole with high unemployment and high percentages of people dependent on handouts...
Do you think not doing it will prevent CWII?
