"Don't mess with Texas."

Image result for texas secede imagesThink about this for a minute: Some members of the Texas republican party have tabled a resolution to vote on whether Texas should secede from the United States at their upcoming state convention.

I know. Sounds crazy, right? But this is where we are now as a country.

I could write a voluminous post about this, but I am just going to cut and paste from the comments section from TPM to make my point..

Please do and don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out. Ever since Texas has become a state that takes more federal money than they pay in under Rick Perry, I see no need to keep them in the union. They won't like the closure of all those military bases either.

I'm for Texas rejoining Mexico.

Can the rest of the states pass a resolution saying "Good riddance."

Yes, please secede. Give up your military bases, U.S. government services, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid (hey, all residents of Texas will be foreigners - we don't have to pay them shit), etc. Try signing a treaty with any nation when you can be blockaded by the U.S. Navy. Yes, please go totally John Galt and pay for your own shit, and see how happy your Teabagger residents are when they finally realize that Baby Jesus ain't gonna pay to pave their roads and their goddamned cable bills. And have fun protecting yourself from Mexico. Can't wait to see the fence you build to protect yourselves when YOU have to pay for it. I would love to see Mexico reclaim its former territory, while Washington, D.C. rocks with laughter. Se habla espanol, motherfuckers?
If they do debate secession, I personally think they should be banned from participating in the 2016 election. That is a treasonous act, plain and simple. Secession is sedition.

What can I say. Texas + Republicans = Assholes.

I wish they wouldn't do that to me..getting my hopes up like that.... only to dash them .. \

Let them go. Then we can build a wall around the place. I'm sure the citizens of New Mexico would build their part for free. Among the benefits of letting Texas secede is that the Dallas Cowboys will never play in another Super Bowl. They probably won't anyway, but it never hurts to make sure.

Perfect, just fking perfect. GO! Run! Do NOT come back when you don't get all 'your free stuff' that you blame on those pesky liberals. GO!" [Source]

Ok, so not everyone loves Texas, but jokes aside, isn't it dangerous that members of a major political party are even considering breaking up the union?  These are the same types of people who have no problem with Donald trump being our president. The same Donald trump who pushed the narrative that the twice elected president by the majority of the people was not even born here.

Just wait until the look at the twenty dollar bill and see a black woman

If Texas does end up seceding, maybe they will elect Donald trump to be their next president. That is, of course, if he isn't elected to be the president of the rest of the 49 states.

Without Trump (and perhaps with), Texas is likely to be part of Mexico soon enough anyway.

The Western Hemisphere's version of Yugoslavia should be an interesting ride for everybody.

The Ministry of Truth said...

This again? Come on. When are Texans going to grow up and abandon this fantasy? It pops up over and over, but it's never gonna happen.

For the record, we liberals have our own version. What if the liberal states seceded with their much higher per capita GDPs and merged with Canada, leaving a smelly, third-world redstate armpit known as Jesusland? It's nice to think about ... but not terribly realistic.

"What if the liberal states seceded with their much higher per capita GDP"

Make it liberal counties and you've got a deal. The small chunk of land that holds Google and Wall Street can merge with Canada. The remaining country would be well rid of the FIRE 'industries'.

Well, we liberals did have the novel Ecotopia, but as far as I know, nobody ever debated it in the legislature.
Also, there was the headline from Andy Borowitz: Citizens of Austin horrified to find themselves completely surrounded by Texas.

Yeah, that's what I'm saying. It's one thing to make a joke about it, and another thing entirely to treat it as a serious proposal. What the hell?

Whitey's Conspiracy said...

We decided this with blood & Fire 150 years ago: secession is treason. The Texas GOP is debating treason.

Of course we have. These responses are what you call "lying shit"

BTW...C. Rap Brown...nice fart. Must smell from the Hot Souse, whatever brand it might be, that the dyke Hillary claims to carry in a bag (purse) I've never seen.

The Shadow Knows... said...

If Texas secedes, a threat the state makes often, then we have the option to bring it back into the Union, as we did the erstwhile Confederate States of America--South Carolina, Mississippi, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, and Texas--those many years ago, or we can do as one commenter suggested, let it secede and build a wall around it, and (wait for it) make the state payfor the wall.

Funny in 2000 and 2004 field didn't ask if it was dangerous for members of the Democrat party to wanted blue states to " break up" the union.

I guess field thinks massa knows what he is doing?

Yep. Texas is just plain awful and a horrible place to live.

So, would the rest of the country please quit moving to our terrible state, especially Yankee and Cali asshole Progs? We'd sure appreciate it!

Lt. Commander Johnson said...

Sorry Anon....they are all wetback immigrants. Kinda funny why the herd moves there, huh? Oh, I forgot the Somalian shits...

And, yes, I understand what you meant.

Texas succeeded from Mexico because Mexico wouldn't let them have slaves. People say they tried to leave the U.S. for the same reason but the truth is a little more complicated than that. There were taxation and allocation of federal spending issues. The slavery issues when Texas succeeded and went to war were that some states wouldn't return runaway slaves and they feared that there would be more new free states coming up than slave states and that would further diminish their power in congress. The Emancipation Proclamation didn't come out until a year after the war started.

Bill Talkington Jr said...

If Texas secedes from the Union, it will take George W. Bush and his presidential library with it. I call that a three-fer.

Bill Talkington Jr said...

On second thought, we should let Texas secede. It would disqualify Ted Cruz as a presidential candidate, and remove Louie Gohmert from Congress.

Make America Great Again said...

If Texas secedes from the Union, where would libs move their businesses? Where would they move to in order to escape taxes and the liberal policies they voted for?

The Purple Cow said...

My friend Neil just wrote this, it says more eloquently than I can how I feel.

"Inconsolable shock.

Can only think - so glad I saw him live, finally, two times in one year. And re-reading what I wrote in response to that first time, or at least the last two paragraphs:

"Finally, a thought that can’t be added to a list because it’s too important, a thought that occurs at 4 in the morning, cos of course, after this, I can’t sleep, I’m still buzzing, my head full of undeniable inarguable HIM. It strikes me that the most important thing about what I’ve just seen isn’t about skill or technique or songs or showmanship, it’s not about something you can learn or fake. It’s about generosity. Generosity of spirit in your music. At all times Prince does the incredible things he does FOR the people. At no point is this merely flash. If it was, my god WHAT flash. But there’s something about the way Prince puts his music across that’s about love, about love for us, and our love for him – he never scowls, he never moans if the crowd don’t sing back as loud as he wants them to, he never makes us feel like we HAVE to do anything. He starts a party and he keeps that party going and it’s the greatest party you’ve ever been at and you feel blessed and honoured to have been there, bear witness, got DOWN with the man. He just gives us his songs with a total openness of spirit and heart.

That’s the thing, perhaps the only thing, that links all true artistic immortals, that deep intrinsic instinctive unselfishness, and Prince exudes it out of every pore. There’s moments tonight where it’s as if he IS music, in some way a living avatar of music’s true liberating spirit, the openness, the freedom, the suggestiveness, the abstractness, the horniness, the transcendence that has us all hooked our whole lives made flesh. He’s everything. Incredible moment when he thanks us for not using our phones, then gets everyone to turn on and transform the place into a sea of stars. And then, during ‘Purple Rain’, which is the most moving moment of my entire life of gig-going, you realise not just that you feel you’re part of that film’s closing sequence but also that that kind of fantasy is precisely what Prince makes real, right here and now. In a time where it’s become orthodoxy that there’s nothing new under the sun, Prince gives you back a new you, under a new sun, dancing a new dance. He makes your life, in seeing him, feel that big, that worth it. That’s an incredibly rare and precious gift, to be able to make people feel that life is worth pushing on with. Utterly inspirational. Totally mind-blowing. It’s amazing what a person can do with music. The pivotal moment I feel the rest of my life will be spun out from. I don’t care if that’s delusion. It’s the best delusion I’ve ever felt."


RIP x"

Prince is dead, Bowie is dead, and yet cunts like you and Charles Manson are still breathing. Proof (if it were still needed) that god does not exist.

Baltimore? I figure that that's the US version of Mogadishu, so you can probably run a business on the down low there.

Do you have a problem with the Ukraine, and Ossetia, et al, wanting to seceed fron the Russian Federation? Tibet from China? The Kurds from Iraq & Turkey?

Your duplicity makes me puke Bernie Sanders.

BTW, Mr. Purple Cow...did I see you condoning Capital Punishment? As in...off the bastards?

If so, let's get it on at Gitmo, and get it over with.

That's weird. I wrote a small piece of that, but by large, it wasn't me...

If you want to read an exercise in insanity read the Texas GOP's platform. I really love their foreign relations section in which they use the bible as a guide.

Field, If I was drunk, I'd tell you.

You've got something funky going on with your blog. It's funny, but it almost seems as my past few postings have been "edited", in some fashion.

BTW, you puking cow. Eat shit.
