Step 1. Texas secedes from the Union.
Step 2. US invades Texas, takes all their stuff, sells Texas to Mexico.
Step 3. Profit, profit, and PROFIT!

It's mostly desert, with a hostile government, and they have oil. It's been done before.

/I'll sign your petition.

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..

TNM-PAC doesn't mention any specific candidates it plans to support, but from the site it's possible to speculate. Perennial candidate Larry Kilgore, who recently changed his middle name to "SECEDE" (yes, allcaps), received 250,000 votes in the 2008 GOP Senate primary and is planning on running for governor in two years.


Larry SECEDE Kilgore? I would've thought Texas would be hard pressed to find someone stupider than Rick "Oops" Perry-- but, apparently, not so much.

Back in the 1960's, when young people were protesting the Viet Nam war, the older people and a lot of rednecks would counter that protest with signs stating:


AMERICA, LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT!


Now the old people and rednecks want to secede. Maybe they should just take the advice of those other old people and rednecks.

Why would we want Texas out? They'll likely be a swing state within 15 years. Imagine the years when Cali, Texas, and Ohio go blue. All the wailing and tearing of hair.

Also if they leave, forget PR,, lets get American Samoa in for another Pacific vacation destination. Or Guam. Or get Korea and Japan on the phone and get started on some world government amalgamation.

/can you imagine Texans faces if we showed them the door and then cut a deal with 200 million Asians?

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.

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.

Reasons we should keep Texas: Large manufacturing and infrastructure investment, Houston space center, lots of military bases that would need shuttering, Austin, tacos.

Don't write a check. Just go the bank and get a bunch $100 bills and then burn them. It will keep your hands warm for a minute or two, which is more than you'll get if you give these guys a check.
