1. These people piss me off to no end

My family has been in Texas for over 160 years. I'll bet this guy is a fucking transplant with his own delusional ideas about what Texas really is. Fuck this fucking transplant mother fucker piece of shit.

8. The kookiest & weirdest ones from any state tend to get more exposure on tv.

But isn't it interesting that the incredibly stupid or backward ones are (a) Republican & (b) Fixed News prodigies. Fixed News can scoop up the stupid

population easier & faster than the other networks -- it's their BASE.


It could be worse for the logical Texans who are underrepresented in the media -- you could instead be living in the deep South & having the History Channel's "The Ax Men: Shelby the Swamp Man" cement another stereotype that all deep Southerners are backward & well......off.

Shelbys do exist but they're not representative of the population as a whole down here.


I hear what you're saying, Gman. I know some good Texans myself.

2. why is the concept of independence so threatening to you?

 


Many, if not most, native Texans want out of the USA as much as Georgia or Lithuania wanted out of the USSR. At some point the country that was the USA will fragment, a house divided against itself cannot stand.

3. Did you poll 'many, if not most, native Texans'? Or is this like one of the rmoney campaign

guesstimate we don't really do numbers polls?

And I always wonder what folks mean when they use the word native. Do they mean the american indians? Or do they mean the first white folks to come along and take the land?

About the house 'n' shit. Since Lincoln believed in secession too.

7. You have no idea what "freedom" means, dear.

There is no "freedom" without responsibility for others. Your analogy is deeply flawed. The state of Texas is not being "repressed" by the federal government; the people of that state benefit from it. Try living without air traffic control, NASA, the federal highway system, the national weather service, the FDA, CDC, USDA, education, housing assistance, medicare, medicaid, social security, ag assistance, WIC, and the U.S. Armed Forces.

Good luck getting along without those. Look at this and LEARN something:

God, your post is so incredibly stupid it's amazing.

9. Cut and run when the going gets tough, eh?

Seriously, quit talking about it and just leave for crying out loud.

This country would be a much better place without people who can't accept the world is changing.

11. Why Is The Concept Of Not Being A Right-Wing Drooler So Threatening To You?


Your statement that most native Texans want out of the USA is utter bullshit---it's a small, noisy, hyper-conservative minority of Texans, and the polls prove it. Moreover, your claim is a vicious insult to a native Texan like me, and to the 3.3 million Texans who just voted to give Obama another term. And thanks so much for giving DU's resident Texas haters aid and comfort. Enjoy your fucking stay here at DU.

12. When you leave, we're going to build a fence around you and take our military bases

out of Texas.

And we'll cut off any military contractor currently located there.

Oh, and "Houston, we have a problem" ...

16. The American House of Cards is Crumbling

 

Because our Federal Government no longer has the consent of the governed it has no moral authority over us. My guess is that within 5 years we will start seeing more and more talk about dissolving the Federal Government in favor of State Government as a first step to dissolving the Union as an entity.

The rationale is pretty easy here... The Federal Government has become so completely corrupt that (regardless of party affiliation) we will begin to refuse to recognize the Federal Government as having any moral authority at all.

17. Yeah, About That "Moral Authority" You're Talking About.....


...am I supposed to consider Rick Perry as more of a moral authority figure than Barack Obama? Because that's where your unhinged states'-rights drooling ends up, from my standpoint.

Enjoy your stay.

19. Make your own choice.

 

Who you consider a moral authority is your decision. Why would you think that you are "supposed to consider Rick Perry as more of a moral authority figure than Barack Obama"? You're not "supposed" to do consider Perry or Obama as anything.

The whole point is that you get to choose who you give your consent to. Or you can withold your consent from everybody. Your call.

My call is this: You don't get to lecture me on anything whatsoever. I'm withholding my consent of you, on everything.

OK, any new business?

The tea party whackadoodles? Paulbots? Libertarians - who really only care about themselves?

Your post is so full of WTFness that I can't even believe you typed it.

22. This Texan does NOT want out of the US

My boss always talks about "taking our country back" and I would not be surprised if she thought like you. However, being of Native American descent from all 4 grandparents, I'd like to "take MY country back." You secessionists can just keep it moving. I'm sure there's a town near the border of Mexico where you all can live happily without bothering the rest of us. Perhaps Laredo?
