Texas Independence?

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.

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.

  1. If State’s were allowed a little more leash and less liberal (Supreme Court) intervention in thier business their probably wouldn’t be talk like this. I would bet a crisp $100 that there’s more talk than we know… just sayin…

  2. You mean a constitutional government that does not try to dictate its whims to the states? That is crazy talk.

  3. While it may be true that there wouldn’t be talk like this if states were allowed more leash, you won’t be hearing it coming from any other state. Texas is the only state that was it’s own country before it was a state and is the only state that has the ability/right in it’s constitution to leave the US if it so pleases. It was part of the agreement when it joined with the United States and being a Texan I am quite proud of it. However I don’t believe it will be the answer to all our problems. However it would solve quite a few that are stemmed from being part of the US. And it might actually give Ron Paul a chance to be President.

  5. Man, hope this happens.

    My wife, not so much. I like to give her grief about Texas. Her family would be considered illegals if they came to visit us though. All Texans would. Oh the irony.

    A lot of good could come from this. Our health stats would increase and US citizens would all of a sudden be ‘healthier.’

    Hmm, what else?

  6. Maybe Bush might decide to run for President of Texas, and then we could invade the United States. The United States is an aggressor nation and would HAVE to be stopped!!!
