    Default Republic Of Texas

    AUSTIN, Texas A group of Texas Democrats says Republican Gov. Rick Perry was reckless when he suggested at an anti-tax rally that fed-up Americans may one day want to secede from the United States. They said Thursday that he should disavow such talk. Democratic state Rep. Jim Dunnam of Waco says talk of secession is anti-American and that some people associate it with racial division and the Civil War.
    Perry's office did not immediately respond Thursday.
    Answering a question from The Associated Press at an anti-tax rally Wednesday, Perry said he doesn't think Texas should secede. But he said the [COLOR=#0066cc! important]federal[COLOR=#0066cc! important] government[/COLOR][/COLOR] was thumbing its nose at the American people and added, "who knows what might come out of that."

    I'm all for it and think states should have more rights. I would even be for dividing red states from blue, just as long as we secure our boarders.
    It's such a shame that in the USA, defending Liberty has become such a heroic deed.

    And those people aren't very bright. But hey, that's who the democrats depend on for votes.

    This country was designed as a voluntary union of sovereign states and any state which wishes to leave has that right.

    Between Texas, Alaska and Louisiana, we could produce and refine enough oil to pay for the best military in the world and still have more than enough to export! Plus, we wouldn't have to bail all the socialist out. California, a state that won't address its problems with illegals will be the next giant bailout for the Obomonites.

    Anyone read today where they are thinking of bailing out the newspapers? Obomonites think there is no end to bailout money. The only way they know how to handle anything is to either throw money at it or apologise.

    Let me clarify; I'd like all the states that voted Republican leave the union. Both the breadbasket and the energy states!

    Then, our biggest problem will be in dealing with the illegals wanting to come for jobs. And, the Democrat states can go full blown socialist and we can cheer them on in thier quest for 3rd World status.

    Are you fellas on some wild springtime weed? Didn't you get your ass beat bad enough the last time you tried that secessionist crap? Not only that, it was the Republicans that gave you the ass kicking.

    You guys that subscribe to this stuff have stopped being American. You ain't no different than those illegals you hate so much, except they don't bitch and whine.

    Once we secede and the Republic of Texas has been re-established I think we should attack Mexico and take over that country just to expand and increase our size.

    Remember the Alamo!
