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.

I can't believe you people are actually entertaining this idea. I understand that Texas is independent in their minds, but how do you really think this is going to work out in the end? I can see no good ending coming from this, but good luck, I hope they give you what you want...

you all live in tx get the fuck out if you dont like it. If you understood that we are the 15th highest economy in the freakn world!! we can do it I believe in TX and everything we stand for. HATERS GONNA HATE but when men standup and say enough is enough and tell the government to f off. If Texas aint important then why did your forefathers fight for our land and freedom? Oh let me guess someone will say oh the civil war was fought over slaves even though over the whole south only 4 percent of people had slaves the real reason for the civil war was because of the government taxing land taking money farmers didnt have.

Texas the brown star state. Are illegal mexis going to vote on this one? The entire country drug supply is traced thru texas. Maybe usa should cutt that whole shit off and see how nice us cities are without crime and drugs. Texas will turn into even bigger cesspool of illegal activity. You can turn alamo into meth lab for the cartels who going to own you without usa having your back.

Tell me now, what country is today what it used to be 30 to 50 years ago..??? huh..? still waiting.. If you go to Europe, my friend. You're gonna have a hard time finding a job. If texas becomes it's own country, it's not going to be what the US wants for it and most likely Mexico will invade and texas will be restored back to Mexico.. Back to what it used to be a long time ago....

I don't think it makes much sense to grant citizenship to the children of people who are here illegally, but that's the law in the U.S.

Mexicans are taking Texas back, one baby at a time. They are taking back what they consider to be their land. They are doing that, for the most part, non-violently.

We took Texas away from Mexico violently.It's not hard to see why they consider that what we call Texas should still be part of Mexico.

I don't think white Texans are going to like the results, but we (U.S. citizens) are the reason it is happening.

I think there is a chance we will see gun battles in Texas when white Texans realize that we are a minority.

That's not what I think SHOULD happen, just what I think could happen. Texas may be going downhill even faster than the USA.

UUUUUhhhh, are you Texans going to have a military draft. Can you draft a quarter million men to go to war with Korea, Iran, Cuba?

Can you afford militay hardware, how about submarines, aircraft carriers, battleships? Taxes?

Hell, even ballastic missles, missle defence protection, chemical war precautions. Taxes?

What about gold to back your new currency? Taxes

How about the first national catasrophe from weather, earthquakes, medical epidemics? Taxes?

Man, I would hate to have to pay your insurance and tax monies!

What about just some very minute social programs, what about when the sick are dropped from you insurance companiou, will you just let them suffer and die?

A conversation between two political consultants:

"So, how do we make the case for Texas seceding?"

"Check out the petition text: it's filled with errors in syntax, usage and punctuation, yet over 120,000 Texas signed it!"

"Wow, that's amazing!"

So, losing Texas dramatically improves the gene pool. THAT'S our angle!"

By 2020, the Texas Hispanic population is expected to outnumber the White population

Hispanic population will grow by 530 percent from 1980 to 2040. These changes are being driven both by high immigration rates and high birth rates.

According to the (Texas) state’s demographer, the percentage of Whites will sharply decrease, from 66 percent in 1980 to only 32 percent in 2040.

The Black population of Texas will grow from 1.7 million in 1980 to 3.4 million in 2040. The percentage of Blacks will decrease slightly from 12 percent in 1980 to 10 percent in 2040.
