Black_Lazerus: Wait, if Texas succeeds, they will be then trapped between the USA which they hate and mexico who they also hate....1. who is going to protect their borders.2. who would protect them from mexico reclaiming their land?
NeverDrunk23: Really hard to believe the claims that Texas will go purple in 10 years.
hiker9999: oldfarthenry: Looks like y'all have an 'merikun version of Quebec on yer hands!It's a shame they don't babble in a different language like our secessionist traitors.Makes it a lot easier on the head when you can't understand WTF they're saying.You've never heard Texans or southerners "talk", have you?

timujin: Please just let them go. Then maybe all the other ignorant crackerasscrackers in the rest of the country would move there so they could be "free".
theknuckler_33: Lionel Mandrake: Texas secessionists have a PAC now, for some reasonBecause they're rubes. A few people will get rich, and these f*cking crybabies will get fleeced.Yup. I came in here to write "for $ome rea$on?"
jonas opines: timujin: Please just let them go. Then maybe all the other ignorant crackerasscrackers in the rest of the country would move there so they could be "free".Okay, but then you'd have a state filled with Authoritarian types who have become accustomed to getting echo-chamber propaganda news from a single source. They'd have a chunk of our military men, and financing from megacorps who'd suck them dry as they've been all this time.So, even assuming that the war didn't start when they left -- once things started to go bad, how long before they'd be whipped into invading the rest of the country? Ya'know, because the Liberal States of America was going to invade them, inevitably, and force them to have abortions, give up their guns, and turn muslim? And the best distraction for domestic problems is a foreign war, after all.
Saborlas: DeltaPunch: Again, it's just too easy to fleece money from these rubes.WHY DIDN'T I THINK OF THIS FIRST?!?[i970.photobucket.com image 400x323]
ongbok: Do these people realize what kind of damage they are doing to their future by associating their names with crap like this, that is never going to happen and they know it, just to stick it Obama and Liberals?

maddogdelta: "We have heard them threaten to secede so often that I have formed an enthusiastic organization -- The American Friends for Texas Secession. This stops the subject cold. They want to be able to secede, but they don't want anybone to want them to."--John Steinbeck, Travels With Charley, p 174
ongbok: I'm pretty sure that any future employer or potential future associate that Googles their name and finds this, unless they are a mouth breathing paranoid racist also, is not going to want to be associated with somebody that is not only delusional, but is also dumb enough to associate themselves with crap like this.

homelessdude: I am strongly considering a donation to this PAC if it can be determined that is not a hoax.After the past decade (and especially the last few years), I would be very satisfied hearing the phrase The 49 United States of America if this PAC was actually able to accomplish its goal..
Semantic Warrior: FTFA: Membership in the pro-secession Texas Nationalist Movement has increased 400 percent since President Barack Obama won re-election on November 5-or so the TMN claims.Because going from 4 people to 16 is increasing 400% and sounds better than "12 more people"...Actual numbers arbitrary, point made.
mrlewish: Anyone want to start a PAC for kicking out Texas?
Another FARK Brain-Storm!
Black_Lazerus: 2. who would protect them from mexico reclaiming their land?
NallTWD: How about this, Puerto Rico is in, Texas is out. we keep 50 stars and Mexico can invade that place.
rosebud_the_sled: If I may speak from the rest of the US, Texas, please leave. Take a few of your neighbors with you. No really, leave. All the good Texans of yesteryear are just that.
Maud Dib: NallTWD: How about this, Puerto Rico is in, Texas is out. we keep 50 stars and Mexico can invade that place.Yeah, they tried that already.Didn't work out too well.[ekballo.files.wordpress.com image 527x350]
Negligible: As someone who lives in Fort Worth, this will bring me years of unending entertainment. Watching tears of impotent rage roll down the cheeks of those who would rather speak in hyperbole, pursuing an unfeasible and self-defeating goal rather than truly try to correct the pile of issues upon which they heave their extremism and traitorous rhetoric, is quite possibly the best and most deserved schadenfreude.
Jim_Callahan: If you're not from Texas, California, or New York, you realize that none of the other states would even miss you enough to realize you were gone until like a week after you left, right? (Well, and FL is a close 4th to NY, but as a Farker I'm obligated to make an implicit "no one cares" joke there). Those four states are 32% of the population and about 1/3 of the US GDP between them.The US would actually be hurt significantly if Texas left, stop pretending otherwise. Especially if you don't live in one of the big four. Actually, even if you do, because that's still failing basic logic and economics no matter where you live.
ha-ha-guy: All Mexico has going for it as a population advantage. Assuming Texas could get the weapons to deal with the human wave, I get Texas the edge.
