Could Texas become its own country?

Apr 21, 2009 | Posted by: khou | Full story: www.khou.com

Ever since Governor Perry gave a nod to secessionists, the idea of Texas leaving the United States to become its own country has put the Lone Star State in the national spotlight.

Texas already is it's own country. Can't wait to retire in a few years and get out of this state. Overpopulated by mexicans and backwoods rednecks. Yeeha!

as a native of texas i would love to see this happen but have mixed concerns on the possibility of it happening. i don't think the federal government will let it go gently meaning there will be an intrastate war in the future if the subject is pushed. i have grown tired of the united states and agree with gov perry and have been thinking for some time of moving to europe as america is not what it is supposed to be or use to be.

NO! you idiot, do you know how bad all of in El Paso want them to leave the U.S and become their own country, Of course El Paso would not follow.. Please do not try and stop them. Do you know how embarrassing it is to say you are from Texas. Do you know what it feels like to be the butt of all state jokes. Unless you are from Texas , you do not know. United my butt, let them leave please. The Retards would fold in a month.

I hate to say it, with how rudely you put it, but you're totally right Petro. If we secede from the union, I for one will be moving away in an instant. If Texas didn't succeed by itself in the past, after leaving Mexico, what makes us think we can make it work this time? Not gonna happen.

Back in the 1800's Texas was its own country, The Republic of Texas or have folks forgotten that. Even during WWII Texas was pretty much self sufficient by building their own power grid for their war time industries. This way they weren't dependent on out side power sources being cut off. Texas has industries the rest of the country doesn't nor can get. Think about it, if Texas goes the rest are gonna pay through the nose.

It would be good to see Texas leave the Union... and then the other redneck states could follow. then the residual United States would be a better country... one that separates church and state.. for Texas is based on the notion: "we-ah got Jees-suz... y'all sum bi-othches ain't" and all Tex-i-cans believe that Jesus was one bad "sum -bi-otch'.. he turned water into Coors light and co-founder the NRA and would kick y'all liberal butts... go figure.

Texas is a nation of "bubba's" that practice their own version of sedition on a daily basis. No real attempts at law an order... no consumer protection. Anything goes. It's motto: "drive friendly.. " is a real insult as Texas drivers all believe they got "Jesus so they can drive as fast as they want" .. after all, those speed limits were installed by liberals, "ain't Jesus weren't no liberal... He loved NASCAR.. so drive as fast as y'all can" that's what "Jee-suz wud do."

Castrate all Texans and help stamp out retardation. Eliminate Texas' "a-whole syndrome" .. put them in quarantine, do not let them out... build work camps for them to pay back their crimes against society.

Recall the Alamo? Yo do? Then Secede... it's the Texas way... a win-win as it's a good thing for the Union... Elect Jorge Bush as your first president... he still urinates Holy water doesn't he?

Just leave as quick as you can... and do not let the door hit you in the butt as you go.
