Could Texas secede and survive?

An article on TheBlaze today examined this question – could Texas really secede from the union? Glenn goes through the evidence and explains why they could indeed survive — but that’s not to say Texas has no issues. There are definitely progressive sources making headway in the state.

WATCH the video that explored Texas’s possible secession:

So while Texas be successful if it were to secede, Glenn warned that there were still reasons to be concerned about the state’s future.

“Texas is sliding into the abyss as well. Texas has got to stop. It’s got to stop sliding into the abyss. If we don’t get Texas to be Texas, the country won’t survive. I mean, we’ve got to get these states to stop sliding into the abyss of progressivism. You know, and even if it is, it’s, for instance, it’s Austin. It’s wherever these giant universities are,” Glenn said.

“You see that in Austin, you see it in Los Angeles, you see it in ‑‑ everywhere there’s a major university, you’ve got that problem. I think that’s why Florida has the problems Florida does. Can you believe that Mitt Romney didn’t win Florida? Well, you’ve got the major universities there. Between the University of Miami, Florida, Florida State, all these young kids that are getting indoctrinated by professors? They don’t have a chance,” Pat added.

    Could Texas succeed on its own – yes.

    The matter comes down to how long they would have between secession and the full force of Obama gone completely insane crashing down on him. Obama is mad to the core of his being and would love to crush one state completely, in blood and fire and steel, to get his message of ruling the land loud and clear to everyone.

    I can put nothing past the madman in the White House, and expect it to be a matter of WHEN and not IF he will strike out and hard at his perceived enemies.

    Glad you brought up the universities, Glenn. O’Reilly just did a piece on state-run universities and how all the professors are far left. The students get a very one-sided education on our money. Bill said that there should be *affirmative action* for conservatives however Stossel said no, no more govt. regulations even though the situtation sucks.

    Elizabeth, I have wondered for a long time where the Nazi’s that fled Germany (WWII) had gone, there are rumors that they went to Argentina (including Hitler who supposedly had plastic surgery done, far fetched but a common rumor still).  Now, if the U.S. had not intervened during WWII then Germany would have been much more successful at their evil game.  So if enough of the bad guys got out, learned enough english to survive and took a few years to migrate through South America they might have been able to enter undetected.  A few have been caught here over a few decades, but how many where there?  They would have had enough time to scheme and start deploying tactics to get back at the U.S., especially if they were adept at Propaganda.  Don’t forget there was still a lot of sympathizers of the Nazi’s here (KKK for example).  They slowly find them and Brainwash Them into thinking their way [an underground group not unlike a cult], then they get positions of influence like the Board of Education and start indoctrinating students.  Just like cults they know how to target weaker minds that are easily influenced (hmmm, kinda sounds like the CIA too, and on that same note maybe they got their sons/daughters to get into the CIA to get info and manipulate those in power with that info.).  Over time they work with and/or become Progressives as long as it works towards their goal of bringing down the U.S. in retribution for what happened in WWII.  I know that this may seem far-fetched but look around is this more like the America of the 40s-80s, or more like the early Germany Hitler Took Over With Promises Of Change???

    *Note: This post is going to be stored somewhere in Idaho/Utah by the Gov’t via Google, it is pretty basic but could be brought up later and twisted as it suits the Gov’ts need for propaganda or saying that I am not a conformist and need Re-Education…  For my sake I hope I am wrong, but what if I am not?

  • mudslide

    One of the reasons Texas is getting more attention from socialpunk wanna-be’s is because they’re all leaving the socialist states they used to live because the liberal govt’s in those states suck the life out of everyone there… Saw it coming years ago.
    They move here because the economy and the laws suck where they live, make a living and thrive on capitalistic values and lifestyles, then when they get ahead they portend to assert the very life they ran from. The exile from California to Texas has been in the thousands the last few years – look it up.
    I wish they’d just stay there.

    It sounds like another step into control, work is a luxury and we decide who will get the luxury of feeding their families, and they will decide what education you can have to make sure it goes along with job they decide for you… if not then you will become another welfare drone!

  • Draxx

    But, even if they did not write it in their Texas Constitution.  That is WHY WE HAVE 2nd Amendment Rights, in case the Gov’t got too big to handle, it was the ones who setup this Great Nation that had foreseen this possibility and gave us those rights!  So that we could take back and sort of reset the Gov’t…

    Violence should always be the last resort, but they gave the right to guns/ammo just in case that is our only hope of Freedom From Oppression!

    I am in favor of secession. But I have to say that any attempt to actually secede will absolutely be met with violence and devastation from the federal government. If you support secession, then you should do it with open eyes and not wishful thinking. You have to be willing to go the distance. I doubt that 1 in 100 people posting here have the first clue about what secession really means.

    I know of no State Government that has petitioned to secede from the U.S. There is a secession movement. I believe the secession movement is a reflection of the intense dissatisfaction with the Federal Government. The dissatisfaction is sincere and the antics of the present administration deserve the critical opinions.
    Our Constitution is the property of the American people, not a property of our government. Most of the angst against government, I believe, is caused by the unconstitutional actions by government. We Americans are used to allowing government to make our decisions for us. But, our government is no longer acting on our behalf. It is acting on the basis of a non-existing democracy that is unconstitutional and  undemocratic.
    In order to take our Republic’s Government away from the revolutionary philosophy presently driving it, we must learn to use our Constitution for what it was designed to do. Our Constitution is a system of laws formulated for American citizens to control their government for the benefit of all of our citizens. We must use our Constitution in a way that enforces Constitutional laws on government.
    If politicians want a democracy, theocracy, or socialist collective, let them step forward, make their case, use the Constitutional amendment process to get what they want; or, put their resignations on their desks and get out of town. 
    Any other method of making fundamental changes to our Republic is illegal and subject to legal penalties.

    Texas would only be the start of a major split.  Once one state takes the leap, more will follow. More than likely the entire Midwest and South would go.

  • mudslide

     agreed

    I’m afraid it’s too little too late.
    The secession ‘movement’ is more of a symbolist action of growing discontent with the feds.
    Since Owebama took office he has done nothing but use The Constitution as a doormat while slowly enacting his anti-colonialist agendas.
    He’s probably the worst representative of POTUS in American history and has little to no respect for the position or it’s heritage. Let alone the law.
    I’m still baffled how he was re-elected.

    In response to Bleuze. It could also put an end to illegal drug smuggling and immigration.  It is not that we here in Texas oppose Mexican immigration, it is that we do not wish other nations and criminal elements using Mexico as their entry portal into Texas.  These groups include bad boys from the middle east (i.e., radical Islamists), MS13 boys and girls from Central and South America, and the drug cartels.  Texas remains staunchly within the Bible Belt and Catholic churches.  We could open up currently restricted oil fields and put the oil cartel out of business.  It would be interesting to see how the oil corporations, the electronic industries, and banking industies would respond to a new operating environment.

    With regard to a violent reaction from the federal government, Texas has fully equiped and trained military forces of its own (not to mention many veterans and well armed citizenry with the back bone to defend what is their’s) and the right to leave the union as it did during the Civil War, our original agreement with the union was never changed after the Civil War ended.  Texas could do very well on its own without the union – there are many other nations who would be anxious to make trade and other treaty agreements.

    I would hope that it will not come to Texas having to take this radical route to survive the demise of this nation.  But never forget or deny that we have the ability and the where-with-all to opt out of the current lunacy.

    How Obama got elected, well that is easy.  Like I have been saying, Romney needed at be ahead by at least 10 points.  Obama is a CHEATER and he is well known how he won elections in Chicago.  Remember, you can only get 100% of a turnout and not 104%+.  What I do not understand is why he is not even called on it!  There still is time by asking for a re-count by your Sec. of State at the state level.  Why do you think Obama and his thugs do not want voter ID laws enforced –  http://obamavoterfraud.blogspot.com/

    Beck has taken absurdity to a new level with this bit. Most of the smartest people in the world have degrees from universities, usually the best universities. Yes, there are the anomalies, like Bill Gates, among many others, but they are the exceptions. The people that run the world go to the best universities. They are conservatives, liberals, libertarians, communists. They are the people who design iphones and the Mars rovers and pretty much everything that occupies your daily life. Universities teach you how to think, not necessarily what to think. Sure, there are professors who are passionately ideological, but that’s what it’s all about…that’s what Beck is all about. But you need to read Marx’s Capital, much like you need to read Milton Friedman’s ‘Capitalism and Freedom,’(among so many more) to know what the hell is going on and what the hell you are talking about. 
            It is definitely sad that too many people graduate college and still don’t know anything. That we must fix. But it’s not the curriculum, the liberal biases, the brainwashing of America’s youth. It’s just that most smart people think you all are nuts. Perhaps they are right. And even the smartest critics of New Deal liberalism are usually college educated. Beck reads history books written by evangelical Christian preachers with an OBVIOUS agenda in mind and then inveighs against indoctrinating professors. Scholars at major universities spend decades researching and writing their books, and the smartest arguments get discussed and debated at length throughout the academic and intellectual world. No one thinks they know exactly what happened and how, it’s about interpreting the past, and contributing to a larger conversation of mankind. Ideas are simply metaphors we construct to make sense of the world and communicate it amongst each other. 

    And this whole secession thing: he must not be serious. what is texas going to do? who’s going to make up the difference in loss of federal funds in the state budget? State education system? What about all the federal jobs that will close? Can Texas defeat the US in a civil war? Could Texas even defeat Mexico in a war? Who would Texas trade with? 
    So, all of a sudden the texas state government becomes in essence the federal govt of a seceded Texas. What do they need to do? Raise revenue? Tax people. I mean, come on, you all are a country in a modern globalized world, you need to elect and PAY leaders, pass laws, import/export laws, labor laws, corporate laws, maintain infrastructure, PAY civic employees, Raise a military? What if if no one wants to join? Conscription? oh that big-bad-mean govt.

    Go ahead and secede. Let a few people in Houston get rich from oil. A few bankers in Dallas get rich from financial transactions that most texans have no conception of (except maybe some of those kids at those pesky universities), the rest of you can work at Wal-Mart and steak and shake for a few bucks an hour. (by the way, do you know how much money those universities make the state? those would no longer be “good” schools anymore, anyways, because they’d be abandoned by all the people who didn’t want to work or go to school in a foreign country. I guess you all would appreciate that.) An yes, all of the aforementioned people will probably be working for American companies. Best of luck.

    If any state could go it alone and survive it would be Texas AND they are one of the few states with the guts to do it !  In time other like minded states would join in and form one unit, state or whatever you want to call it.  Leave the Libs on both coasts  and  any other states that wnat to continue on with the never ending “free stuff” to do their own thing. We have the natural gas, oil, coal and clean water.  They can have their filthy, crime ridden cites, while we keep our guns and Bible.  They can have Whoopi Goldberg and their blow !

    That would be the more likely scenario.  A new Civil War, but one in which the military would be hard pressed to fight.  In the mid-19th century, units were composed fm states and localities rather than fm all over the nation.  This was a leading reason to intermix the troops, so that one whole town would not lose all its men if the US went to war or that one state would not be disproportionally affected.

    Well, in response to the part about large Universities, I would say there is some hope. I’m currently a college student in a Liberal state and even some of my indoctrinated peers are starting to notice the bias. 
    Though I would say, if you want to keep us students from falling (even I’m having a difficult time sticking to the Truth with the constant bombardment), then you better start doing something about it. I.e. do any of you railing against progressivisim in the Universities actually care to start making said public U.’s teach the Truth. Or even better, start a new U where you can kick the progressive model to the curb and get back to the original foundation (circa Greco-Roman time frame?).

    Texas could be the “light” and “leader” needed to encourage disengagement from the federal government. An attempt was made starting in 2007 to organize a movement in creation of a new state-of-mind “Christian” nation. It was named “Amerijericho,” and it would have consisted of Tennessee and the surrounding ten states. Free barter markets within self-sustaining communities where family-owned enterprises provided “unity” could have led to happier – self-sufficient – lifestyles. Though I believe that anything we attempt to do at this point in history would be too little and too late, we need to occupy ourselves in order to maintain hope. I suggest contacting true patriots in the eleven designated states to make it a total of 12 states when “Texans” move forward. Also, I recommend using “White Horse Independents” as a political organization. Good luck.

    ‎”Given these facts, secession is equally allowable, since this principle too can appeal to the original sovereignty of the peoples of the states. What’s more, since no power to prevent secession was ever delegated to Congress, and since secession is not prohibited to the states, it remains a reserved right of the states under the Tenth Amendment.The resolution [of 1798] of the General Assembly [of Virginia] relates to those great and extraordinary cases, in which all the forms of the Constitution may prove ineffectual against infractions dangerous to the essential right of the parties to it.” – James Madison, the Virginia Report of 1800.

    Another fine example of Beck pandering to the those on the fringe of reality; stoking up the fires of resentment to postulate a complete BS idea in order to continue to get viewership and readers of the website. Crackpots have started pettion drives throughout history; some have actually been succesful. Secession–yeah that looks like a real winner. I reckon there are plenty of arayan militia types who will volunteer for your new texas army Glenn. Glenn, why don’t you just cut out that liberal cancer in Austin, do away with the Longhorns and keep the rest of the state for your libertarian on steroids friends? I am sure the leaders of the oil and gas industry and all other true Americans  will be backing you 100%. If I were a third or fourth generation Texan, I would suggest you take your carpet bagging act and get out of town.

    Perhaps I missed it somewhere, but I do not find any evidence of Beck or his sidekicks Stu and Pat having attended any institute of higher learning other than the “school of how to get the highest ratings posssible on radio shows by saying outlandish things”. College is not for everyone; countless Americans have been succesful in business, life and in their communities without college. but those who did not attend Universities, nor otherwise seek to greatly expand the knowledge base they possessed as 18 year olds, are in no position to comment on the workings of Universities. Plenty of liberal academicians out there no doubt; plenty of conservative as well. Ever meet with leaders of conservative student groups on any campus Glenn and company?  Contrary to what Glenn and Sideshow Pat and Stu the Clown think, most average college kids want to succeed in business (read capitalism) and get a job out of college to start paying back those loans. They do not have a political agenda and they cant afford to be socialists other than in conversation. How many campuses has Glenn and company visited to discern the leanings of the professors and students? HOw many academic journals have these clowns ever attempted to read?

    Blaming the outcome in the Presidential election on those noted radical Universites such as Florida State, UMiami and UFlorida? Are you insane? Have you clowns ever been to those schools? Did you ever stop and consider that the number of Florida residents who are transplants from your despised liberal bastions of the Northeast might have had a bigger impact on the election? Did you stop and consider that Bush Senior won Florida by 100,000 + votes in 1992; Clinton won by 300,000 + in 1996; Bush Jr.only won by 500+ votes in 2000 and about 400,000 in 2004; and Obama won by only 70,000 votes in 2012?  I guess that makes the definition of swing state doesn’t it Glenn and team? Perhaps it has something to do with the individual candidate and how he campaigns? No matter what your politics are, the younger candidate always draws the younger vote– right crack research team of Stu and Pat?  If you had taken a course in political science in college, you might have learned that little factoid. As a dissappointed Romney voter, I sure wish his team had figured out a better way to get to voters under 30; but they failed to do so. It is not indoctrination-it is failure to communicate in the most effective fashion.

    Haha. Mr. Grimm you get more paranoid and delusional by the day don’t you. As I mentioned earlier I am attempting to do a mini, informal diagnostic on you purely based on your posts and comments. Based on your paintings you are pretty severly out of touch with reality. While I am in complete favor of artistic expression, your cat gallery is quite disturbing. You also seem to have an obsession with Barak Obama. The definition of obsession is as follows: “the domination of one’s thoughts or feelings by a persistent idea, image, desire, etc.” I firmly bleieve this sums up your feelings toward our president. Based on your previous posts it seems that you obviously live alone. Living alone is fine as long as you maintain a healthy social life. Having a social life is an important part of being a normal functioning human being. Based on your post detailing how your neighbor “visciously attacked” you upon Obama winning I came to the conclusion that either A.) this story is fabricated or B.) you actually were attacked. If you actually were attacked I am fully convinced, again based solely on your posting on this site, that it was you that instigated the attack. While it is never right to use violence I imagine your neighbors aren’t too fond of you and I feel like you are somewhat of a pest within your apartment complex, most likely due to your political diatribes and passing out of doomsday preperation checklists. See here is why you are such a laughable character. You post constantly about how insane President Obama is. Every post questions his mental stability but when I compare Obama to you I immediately begin to laugh. Like or dislike his politics, that is what makes this country great, Obama is an accomplished individual. I will also say the same thing about Boehner, and Romney just to give this post a little less political biased. Most politicians at that level are accomplished individuals. They have various degrees, which I know universities are demonized on the Glenn Beck website but it is an accomplishment none the less. When you are able to get a significant portion  of the country to stand behind you that is an accomplishment. Now look at yourself. Please I am begging you. If you believe you are so great. If you believe you are this revolutionary then instead of posting on The Hill and Glenn Beck, run for some sort of postion in your community. Run for treasurer of the PTA, anything. After your long and hard fought campaign come back on here and tell me how many votes you recieved. Barring all votes form imaginary cat/people figures I will bet my life that your grand total of votes will be exactly ONE! Just your lonesome self.

    Once again, we have a right wing nut job pushing some idea that simply explodes in the face of this country’s changing demographics. A bunch of right wing crackers think they are going to seceed a state containing millions of blacks, Hispanics and liberal whites, huh?  Crackpot stuff. You can’t pull off a secession of “just the white guys who hate Obama” in Texas. Then of course, Pat and Glenn have another problem, Texas is full of guys like me, retired Marines who took an oath to “protect and defend the United States”.  If I was Glenn or Pat, who both live in Dallas, I would think twice about leading some secession movement, or you may find out just what that oath is all about.

    A perfect example is the post left further on down to me by a Matt Driscoll, he claims to ‘be doing an informal diagnosis’ of my posts on the site.

You spread you delusional propaganda to anyone that will listen. As I have mentioned before I believe everyone is entitled to his/her own opinion, as long as it is an informed, rational opinion.

There are many nice intelligent people on this site but you are not one of them. You spread hatred and fear. You seem to consider yourself a prophet and a revolutionary and you are neither. You use dramatic language and archaic words to add a foreboding tone to your posts but any intelligent individual can see right through it. You are a fringe element of this country. Your voice is not heard.

    In a word, the answer is YES- so long as the Commie-In-Chief leaves them alone and doesn’t try to blow them off the map after secession.  Don’t count on that, however.   I mean, losing all that revenue could possibly cause him to attack Texas, hoping he could force them back into the fold since they would all need SOME sort of healthcare after he nuked them.  He would count on the sales in order to take more multi-million dollar vacations.

    You needn’t worry about Obama, what you do need to worry about are those of us who took this oath when we joined the US Armed Services:

    I, (NAME), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.

    You traitorous trash who threaten my beloved country, you “enemies domestic” will meet us. We will find you where ever you hide. My guess is both Pat Gray and Glenn Beck are sniveling cowards who never saw military service, probably both rejected due some moral failings, cowards like them love to urge other men to die as they sit in their comfortable homes. If they did serve, they have no honor, they denied their oath to their country and to their God and and any man that does belongs in hell.

    Translation, for those who don’t speak liberal:

    “I am all about positive discussion.”  = “Come over to the dark side and we’ll chat.”

    “Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, so long as it is an informed, rational opinion.” = “If you don’t share my opinion, it isn’t worth talking about.”

    Remainder of post = “I really have nothing constructive to say because you’ve blown all of my arguments out of the water, and I dont’ know how to use facts and logic, I just feel that you’re wrong, and I hate it that you disagree with me so I’m going to lower myself to the level of ad hominem attacks.”

  • Texian

    Glenn, you are a nice guy, and a recent immigrant to Texas.  (No doubt Pat had something to do with it).  But to the point, your attached video is cute (except for the metrosexual narrator voice) and does address some key points.  The “legaleze” of secession doesn’t mean a thing – especialy when things get to the point of the consideration of secession.  Just because the judicial branch “interprets” the Constitution and says “no you can’t do that,” doesn’t necessarily make it so.  (The judicial rulings of such matters, for a large part attributable to Lincoln-esque Yankee policy – but I digress).  Texas doesn’t need anybody’s permission.  Texas does what it damn well pleases.  Yes, the same old “military” argument, revenue, etc. Valid issues but I can give you another angle on them.  Texas has leverage – primarily energy.  95% of the former U.S. gets its energy via Texas pipelines.  We control the taps.  We have two international seaports to export energy.  Energy runs the world, and makes for good bedfellows.  Before secession, international alliances through trade agreements can be established with other “superpowers.”  These new “friends” can exert external international “pressure” on the former U.S. should it dare to encroach upon their new “bride.”  We also have two large bases that are under our control.  Who says we have to give back all of our planes (negotiated with energy leverage).  Who is to say all of the military personnel will want to leave instead of joining the new Texas Military?  For governmental revenue, we just tax every unit of energy that leaves our border to our new customer – the former U.S.  Texas just re-opened a silver mine – (can you say metal backed currency).  There are many other issues to contend with – but ask yourself – what is Liberty worth?  Our Founding Fathers asked themselves that same question.  The payment for further Liberty has fallen on our generation – and Liberty ain’t cheap..

    The rubicon has been crossed – the enemy certainly is not giving up until victory.  It is now obvious they smell blood in the water.  Glenn, again you are a nice guy (a little too pacifist for me but.. you do market to the ladies and I understand that, it has its place) and I have listened to you for years; but from my side of the barbed wire fence this Texan would rather be whipped and rolled in a patch of prickly pear cactuses naked and sunburned in the Pecos desert and left for the buzzards than let the Lone Star fall on my watch..

    Here are some thoughts Bob Smiley logged about Texas
    (with a few liberties of my own thrown in):

     

    –Resources. Texas
    currently sits on one-quarter of the nation’s oil reserves and one-third of the
    nation’s natural gas reserves. Even more, fully 95% of the country receives its
    oil and gas courtesy of pipelines that originate within Texas.
    This is what one might call leverage. For revenue Texas
    can tax every unit of energy leaving the Texas
    border. Texas has also re-opened
    a silver mine and will open more if need be . Currency? No problem, Texas
    has done that before too. Trade? Texas
    has two of the top ten international seaports – and the energy resources to
    export. Energy trade makes for good neighbors and international alliances.

     

    –The Texas
    Economy. This is well documented but worth repeating. In the last decade, even
    with the Great Recession, Texas
    has expanded by one million jobs. One million. That’s more than every other
    state … combined. Because of its friendly business climate, Texas
    is home to more Fortune 500 companies than anywhere else. If Texas
    were its own country, it would have the thirteenth-highest GDP in the world,
    just behind Canada
    and Russia. Or
    think about it this way: For every dollar Texas
    taxpayers send to Washington,
    they currently get only about 80 cents back. Theoretically, they could transfer
    those funds to the state’s coffers and still give every Texan a 20 percent tax
    cut.

     

    –Utilities. Texas
    is the only state with its own power grid. Developed over the course of the
    last 100 years, the Texas grid
    covers the majority of the state and is fully state controlled. Translation:
    Texans could rest assured that the federal government doesn’t have the power —
    literally — to turn off their lights.

     

    –Defense. While no match for Uncle Sam’s firepower, Texas
    does have a significant defense presence, namely in the Texas State Guard
    (which answers only to the governor), the Texas National Guard, the Air Guard
    and the legendary Texas Rangers. Texas
    is also home to two of the nation’s largest military bases — Fort
    Hood and Fort
    Bliss — and being able to control
    those two installations is nothing to sniff at. But let’s not forget the
    firepower of the citizenry itself. There’s a reason burglars don’t waste their
    time in Texas.

     

    –History. Texas
    has done this before. Twice, actually. First in 1836, when it seceded from Mexico
    and became an independent country. Second in 1861, when it joined the
    Confederacy. And while the South did lose the Civil War, it didn’t lose it in Texas.
    In fact, by the end of 1864, the North didn’t have one square foot of Texas
    soil under its control despite many attempts; such as in the second battle of
    Sabine Pass where 44 Texans defeated 5000 Yankees. Even a full month after
    Robert E. Lee surrendered at the Appomattox Court
    House, Texas was
    still fighting. Texans love their state and they love a fight. That is a lethal
    combination.

    oooooohhh, so full of hate aren’t you??  so much that you curse God for it.  Name calling doesn’t work as well down here as it does outside our border – most Texans are right comfortable with themselves – unlike some others who have inferiority complexes and just spew hate all the time (hint). 

    I have always considered myself a Texan first, and an American by agreement (of which I want to annul – since people like you have destroyed it).  So Texans aren’t exactly “traitors.”

    “Infest Texas”?  Yep – my family has been here since the Republic.

    “Racist”?  Yep – Texans are more superior than Americans.

    Guess what!  I fly the Texas flag as high as yours – and (bonus!) I can still say the pledge of allegiance:

    “Honor the Texas flag.  I pledge allegiance to thee, Texas, one Republic, under God, one and indivisible.”

    Hey, the guy “critten” is right, liberal or conservative, you’re just a damned traitor,  anyone who has served in the military and taken that oath will be glad to tell you that. Bet you never saw a day in the service, did you there, big shot?  I bet there are plenty of loyal Americans in Texas, so I ain’t real worried about scum bag traitors like you causing much trouble, and if Glenn Beck is listening, he just lost another listener, I usually agree with him but this kind of talk just makes me want to vomit, preferably in your face. Advocating the break up of the United States is treason, and those who advocate it are traitors, and the hell with the bunch of you, you just got removed from my radio dial.

  • Texian

    First, Glenn’s opinion is his own as is mine. If you truly listen to Glenn you would know his position on the subject matter is much more reserved than mine, so your threat to change the dial is based more on coercion, in hopes he will change his opinion or restrain his first amendment rights just to keep you on his dial number. About the only thing Glenn and I could concur on is that Texas could very well survive on its own if it had to.

    The military takes an oath to the Constitution.. protecting the Constitution from enemies – foreign and domestic.  The Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branch repeatedly and regularly violate it and “interpret” it to suit their agenda, making it irrelevant.  Dissention is not just outside of the military.  (If you want to read how many in the military have concerns of the direction of the former U.S., take a look at oathkeepers.org) [No I did not serve in the military, but years ago in the industry I was in, I was trained by some damn good men who were Vietnam Special Forces survivors from most every branch, Seals, Rangers, Force Recons, Pararescues and Green Berets].

    America, you have been usurped from within.  You have lost your way; you have sacrificed the values that at one time made you a great Nation. Your government is now an infested burden filled with the stench of rotting putrid tyranny – and we can smell it all the way down here. You have betrayed and disrespected the brave souls who gave their life for you, and have selfishly spent your inheritance. You cannot pass off crow as an eagle.

    We are at a crossroad – those of you who choose the servitude of liberal progressivism, we leave you in peace to your folly in the rest of the States, govern as you may. We will relieve you of our conservative way of life and ideology and leave you to your bliss. It is an amicable solution for both. All we ask is to be left in peace.

    Your gutter language betrays your evil heart and borders on if not in facts is a terroristic threat. But I am confident I can defend myself so I will take your comments as just a person shooting off their mouth. By the way, if you really did serve your country, I would urge you to get some therapy for your mental condition.

    In my opinion Texas should exercise their right to divide up into five states. This would presumably give conservatives 8 additional senators. I would also like a amendment requiring any candidate for national office to have military service with at least a general discharge. Never happen though, the system is overrun with elitists and narcissists who believe they are immune to the rule of law. This is why congress etc. have a special health care plan just for them. Naturally, this plan covers them for the rest of their lives, in office or not.

    your a full on liar and you know it, Marine Corp. ? bullshit !! and if by some very small chance you actually did enlist. I have NO DOUBT you washed out or were otherwise dishonorably discharged. All libs need to get one thing very, very clear, if it comes to armed conflict or a second revolution in this country. Liberals will have a 0% chance of victory, your just not made (mentally) for this kind of thing, I just hope I’m there to stop my associates from the bloodshed that will follow, I will be just as happy to deport you from my blessed Texas !! If you were to return once deported, them a rope would be awaiting you.
