Let Texas Secede!

Warning: This may offend you if you are a person who thinks that:

A) George W. Bush can actually form complete sentences without the aid of a teleprompter. B) It was just a damn shame when they went and cancelled "Hee-Haw." C) Them A-rabs" are all a bunch of "sand niggers anyway." OR:
D) Your belt buckle is the size of a garbage can lid. E) "It's Miller Time!" is something you have actually said. F) All of the above.
Since this war is being waged by a bunch of greedy, power mad expansionist rednecks who mostly seem to hail from Texas, why don't we let them form their own country like they originally wanted to? Seriously. Let the Country of Texas and their drunken, bonehead, fascist supporters who spurt "Love it or leave it" in between beer belches and fast food farts wage their war of terror, (that's right you Bush cronies, "Terrorism," according to Webster, means 'violence committed by a group to attain a political goal,' which, if you take a look at who is doing what, it is pretty obvious, even to the dolts, dumbbells and dungpiles of the Lone Star State who support it, that the protestors aren't terrorists, the French and Germans DEFINITELY aren't terrorists, yet seem to be falling victim to that word that has taken on Neo-McCarthy implications anyway) on the rest of the world while the real United States of America, those of us who still believe in the Bill of Rights and what they stand for, figure out how to fix this mess that your hate, arrogance, greed and bigotry has spawned. The only folks who are un-American are those rich white hicks who seem to be rewriting the Constitution as they see fit, and according to their own agenda. Forty-nine free states are better than fifty ones enslaved.

If Texas were to secede, we would probably force the entire Bush family back to Massachusettes where they came from, so your problem probably would not be solved. We would form an actual republic that would limit government, retain a vast number of the US military (Texans) and a huge chunk of the nation's economy. The only reason we gave up our 9 year old nation in favor of statehood in the first place was to protect our citizens from the relentless attacks of the Mexican army, which is no longer a problem. Our smaller, locally accessible government would have far more accountability than the "plausible deniability" types in DC, and our natural tendency toward staying out of other peoples business would keep insane foreigners from flying planes into our buildings. So if you Union folks ever get up enough support to kick Texas out of the United States, just let us know, most of us will probably help you.

As a Texan, I would love it if our great state were to secede. But only because I love it here so much, I think it could stand well as a country on its own. Texas is a great place to live, with lots of culture, history, scenery, diversity, and of course, the best Tex-Mex food in the union. But I always tell people, the only thing I don't like about Texas is the politicians. Let me tell you, it's hard to be a Democrat in this state. I stand with the Dixie Chicks in saying that I am ashamed that President Bush is from Texas. Maybe if we were to secede, all the damn power-hungry Republicans -- who won't settle for controlling just a small piece of the pie -- will leave our great state and head to Washington D.C., where they can continue pandering to the corporate lobbyists.

D.C., LET MY PEOPLE GO!! WE DONT WANT YOUR LAWS OF HITLER!!! 21.Jul.2004 14:05
