Chuck Norris for president … of Texas


Posted by
CNN's Lauren Kornreich

If the State of Texas ever left the Union, Chuck Norris is interested in being president of the newly independent country.

(CNN) – Actor Chuck Norris has his eyes on the presidency, but not the White House. Norris wrote that he would be interested in becoming the president of Texas, if the state were ever to secede from the Union.

“I may run for president of Texas,” Norris wrote Monday in a column posted at WorldNetDaily. “That need may be a reality sooner than we think. If not me, someone someday may again be running for president of the Lone Star state, if the state of the union continues to turn into the enemy of the state.”

The actor claimed “thousands of cell groups will be united around the country in solidarity over the concerns for our nation” and said that if states decide to secede from the union, that Texas would lead the way. “Anyone who has been around Texas for any length of time knows exactly what we'd do if the going got rough in America,” Norris wrote.

“Let there be no doubt about that.” Norris was a strong supporter of Mike Huckabee’s presidential bid, and he helped to draw attention to the former Arkansas governor’s campaign.

1. I would think the fact he was born in Oklahoma and given the name Carlos

would be enough to disqualify him from such an "exalted" position.

My favorite thing about Carlos Norris is that he never ever mentions he is from Oklahoma. Which is fine with me.

Apparently the answer is "Run Away"

15. Chuck, you'd discover how few sane people actually support that...

...and spend the rest of your days under the supervision of real Texas Rangers.

24. Why does Norris assume there would be a president and not a dictator or military leader?
