Funny, left wingers didn’t seem to mind the "talk" about California seceding during the Bush presidency.

If anything he should be more blunt about it. If Texas seceded, I'd say "You all may go to hell; as for me, I'm going to Texas! - Davey Crocket" Back home to my Fight'n Texas Aggies. Gig 'em! :thumbsup:

Yup, I'd return in a heartbeat.

I find it laughable that when Obama took office, the MSM all proclaimed that everyone would now get along and the divided house that was America over the past 8 years would now be whole. Interesting that people just aren't buying it. Obama's victory was an electoral college landslide. The popular vote was a wee bit closer. Tea parties, talk of secession, states passing laws telling the Federal government to stop sticking their nose where it doesn't belong. Yeah, everybody's happy now. :rolleyes:

I've got that on the back of a shirt that I bought while visiting the Alamo while on base liberty during basic.

It's interesting that the governor didn't say Texas was going to secede, he just mentioned it in passing that others were thinking about it...and suddenly the left flies off the handle and gets really patriotic about preserving the union.

Riiiiiiiight.

If the folks in the MSM dislike it, that's more the reason to support it.

The way I remember it, it was the last 16 years of America divided...

I've lived in TX, even in Ron Paul's district...but would have to seriously consider something more inland. With these new "guns made here=no Fed regulations" laws in MT and AK those states have moved up on my list. Maybe with a bit of global warming they might be a bit more hospitable to my thin blood.

There has been talk of Hawaii seceding from the union for years (I lived there in the early 90s) but its not going to happen. Texas, California, Hawaii can all have tiny groups of their populations calling for independence all they want, but its just that...talk

Y'all know we're all set up for independence, right? Our power grid is separate from the rest of the Continental US. :thumbsup:

Hopefully we can take Oklahoma (why not?) and Louisiana with us. :D

too bad these crackers aren't so interested in protecting free speech just a nation that stands for it

Huh? What crackers? You mean Texans? Clarify, please.

Of course we know it will never happen, but that would be a lot of US Mil to lose:

Heh, I'm two blocks from Fort Sam right now! In fact, the duplex I live in used to be off-post housing. And when we first moved here, we were living close to Camp Bullis. There's nothing like listening to the sound of M2 practice on a Saturday morning.

Fort Sam is all set to become the military's primo medical training facility, and IIRC Bullis is home to some NG spec forces or something.

Never say never Doheny.

people said we would never have a black president. I can see this, along with the tea party stuff, going a lot further before it gets more settled down.

Man, I miss home. If they did secede, I'd try to get back there just as fast as I could. Still trying even if they stick with the Union.

+1. Ten thousand in San Antonio cheered at hints that we should secede. I was there, I saw it with my own two eyes.

Ummmm..... it actually has been for many years. I did my Medic training there in 1987, at the time there 6 companies in one battalion doing just Medic training plus another battalion doing all the training for the other specialties (Respiratory therapists, nurses, phlebotamists, advanced medic school, etc.). Brooks Army Medical Center was already one of the premier military hospitals, and very highly regarded for their burn unit.

We had quite a few international students from foreign militarys while I was there.

Well, it didn't take long to bring out the left-wing racists. Mods, I assume the "n-word" is verboten here as a racial insult. I want the same standard applied to racial attacks whoever they target.

I'm very serious about that.
