we love texas. or at least i do! every kid who grew up in america (boy anyway) loves texas. has all that rich history. i'm not really very political. politics change with the wind.

plus, what about texas tea?

edit: oil that is! and the beverly hillbillies. will they have to leave bh's? apply for a visa? they got allot of $$ so they can prollie afford it. just wondering!

anyway, me thinks jim bowie was ambidextrous. cuz fess parker new his shit! prollie was a texan, eh?

ummm, am i the only one taking this seriously? there's a lot at stake here!!!

Texas gave the world Bush 43, a transgression too big to forgive.

If Texas can secede from the union, parts of Texas can secede from Texas.

As someone said upthread, perhaps the union should have let the south go in 1861, and instead looked west and north. It could have stopped the south and slavery from expanding any further, and instead formed a partnership with Canada. The 30 states plus ten provinces. As Seward and Lincoln both dreamed of.

Anyway, real (Lyndon Johnson) and faux (the Bushes) Texans have been your president or vice-president for 28 of the last 52 years, so no wonder that they're upset.

back to the alamo, if you rent a car in texas (alamo car rental) and drive it to cali and they succeed, who does the car belong to?

edit: and what happens to all the flags that everbody owns? they got fifty stars. will they be against the law?

we cud adopt canada and then we cud leave the star on the flag. save a lot of hassels, eh?

don't you wish you lived in texas?
actually, after i graduated from college i flew to lubbock, texas for an interview with this company (they paid my way). other than it being rather flat and somewhat isolated, i really liked it. liked the people and the texas solidarity & hospitality!

edit: truthfully, there's allot of weird things going on in the world. the Arab Spring, etc! ya never know what cud happen!! that would be a really big shake up for America!

No. West Texas, Hueco and Big Bend will remain in the Union.

Guadalupe Mountains are pretty cool. I hope we get to keep those too.

they have all those drugs passing thru the border of texas and through texas to elsewhere. maybe they would finally get a handle on that. or they could just tax them and make sure they just kept on moving through. since "america" wouldn't send in the "national guard" when texas requested it!

edit: actually, if they did secede, i suspect a lot more people would flow into texas then there would be people leaving texas. they have plenty of room. and the weather is good. they could develope a lot of territory.

things are changing around the world overnight!!!

I've lived in Boulder and Denver, so I know just how much people in Colorado "love" Texans. Yes, I've seen the effete sons of Texas oil barons buy their way into the Ivy Leagues with a D+/C- average. Wonderful people, so modest and unassuming! Wonderful to share a frat house with some Texans too. So charming, well-mannered and cultured! But Austin isn't half bad.

I lived in New Mexico for many years. There are a few skis areas that seem to attract a lot of Texans. You won't find very many locals at those ski areas, for good reason....

I skied at Taos for a couple of years and thought the Texans were great. They are friendly on the lifts and don't ski the powder!

Every state has some loonies. Northern California has that State of Jefferson thing and Alaska makes noises from time to time.
