Now here is something you don’t hear about every day…
There is a candidate for US Senator that says a vote for him is a vote for Texas independence. Larry Kilgore, born in 1964 in Amarillo, TX and veteran of the US Air Force is a strong advocate for the succession of Texas.
Here are his solutions (from his website) for just a few of the issues facing Texas today…
Illegal Immigration: Texas Independence
Economic Turmoil: Texas Independence
US Empire’s antagonistic actions toward foreign governments: Texas Independence
US Empire’s antagonistic actions toward Texas: (you guessed it) Texas Independence
I guess the only problem Texas has these days is that it have to put up with the rest of America dragging it down. Apparently, Texans are just better at politics and administering a country than the rest of America.
Before you write this guy off, look at his last campaign. In 2006, he ran for Governor and picked up over 7% of the vote. That is better the Rudy did in most states and the media still considered him a viable candidate right up till he dropped out.
I wonder, with that kind of attitude coming from Texas, how many people in other states would vote to see Texas go?
Here is another tricky one… What will they do with all the Presidential Libraries? The LBJ Library in Austin is quite nice, I’d hate to see that go out of country. Of course, there is the Bush library too.
