Adios, motherfarkers.

DO IT!!!

It would be like flypaper to all of the other conservative nutjobs in the country -- they'd all leave their states for Texas, and the rest of the US would be better for it.

The taste of conservatard tears is sweet.

Don't let the doorknob hit you where the dog should have bit you.

Really, wouldn't it be more fair to give Texas back to Mexico? I think so.

I'm against border fences, but I might support one being built around Texas if they were to secede.

"No, no. You wanted your Teabagger Libertarian paradise. Sorry you're poor and dying in the street with no healthcare or social safety net, your kids can't count to potato but have the useless skill of reciting the Bible cover-to-cover, and there's no Federal US Government there to bail-out your budget when you inevitably run out of money."

OK. We'll trade for for Puerto Rico and we won't have to change the flags.

For the good of the country.

Yeah, this. They would never win a presidential election without TX electoral votes.

Which is also, I think, why GOP Reps will never vote for Puerto Rico statehood. A state full of Latinos? Noooooo

These are the same farktards that get all bothered when kids don't want to recite the Pleggalegiance, yet it seems that most of them don't have a farking clue what's in it or what it means.

Here... let me help you.

I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

I expect that all the Fortune 500 companies that fled Louisiana for Texas would have to repatriate. Not to mention Louisiana would become our main port on the Gulf of Mexico.

I don't see a downside.

A brief history of Texas' last attept at secession:

Texas: fark you, Uncle Sam!
Uncle Sam: Hold on, I'm going to beat the shiat out of your friends first.
(Uncle Sam detroys the South)
Uncle Sam: OK, we're coming for you now.
Texas: Please don't hurt us! We surrender!
 
2012-11-09 01:44:23 PM  
Yeah. I'm sure America is really going to be all broken up about Texas seceding.

I just wonder, do we get to kick the Cowboys and all the other football teams in Texas out of the NFL and NCAA and whatnots?

I would like that very, very much.
 
2012-11-09 01:46:09 PM  
Well, considering they weren't brought into the country legally in the first place they're an entire stat of anchor babies. We should make them live what they espouse.
 
2012-11-09 01:49:47 PM  
I love that they all consider themselves Patriots at the same time. Anyways, I don't want them leaving, because they will become a huge pollution problem and it will spill out to the states around it.

If Texas left, there is a good chance that Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi, Oklahoma and Kansas would all go with them. Our main port would be Florida, ugh

Jebus fark, teabaggers. Can't you just go plot to blow up a shopping center or something? Then we can declare you a terrorist organization and wipe you off the map.
 
2012-11-09 02:29:35 PM  
Adios motherfarkers. At least next time when your state catches on fire, you won't have the money to put it out.

Wouldn't it be high-larry-us if the successfully seceded only to realize a majority hispanic population within a generation? Talk about schadenfreude!

And people called me a moran for saying that I thought another civil war was on the horizon. And before all of you "I don't see a downside"ers leave this thread, think about what will happen to homosexual Americans living in an independent Texas.

Most of the people from Oklahoma would move to Texas, leaving that state pretty much empty. The cool people in Texas can then repopulate Oklahoma. They can even rename it Oklahomo if they want to.
