the COUNTRY o Texas

THE COUNTRY of TEXAS

Please note that Texas is the only state with a legal right to secede
from the Union. (Reference the Texas-American Annexation Treaty of
1848.)

We Texans love y'all, but we'll probably have to take action since
Barack Obama won the election. We'll miss you too.

Here is what can happen:

1: Barack Hussein Obama becomes President of the United States, and
Texas immediately secedes from the Union.

2: George W. Bush will become the President of the Republic of Texas.
You might not think that he talks too pretty, but we haven't had
another terrorist attack, and the economy was fine until the effects of
the Democrats lowering the qualifications for home loans came to roost.

So what does Texas have to do to survive as a Republic?

1. NASA is just south of Houston, Texas. We will control the space
industry.

2. We refine over 85% of the gasoline in the United States.

3. Defense Industry--we have over 65% of it. The term "Don't mess with
Texas," will take on a whole new meaning.

4. Oil - we can supply all the oil that the Republic of Texas will
need for the next 300 years. What will the other states do? Gee, we
don't know. Why not ask Obama?

5. Natural Gas - again we have all we need and it's too bad about
those Northern States. John Kerry and Al Gore will have to figure out a
way to keep them warm....

6. Computer Industry - we lead the nation in producing computer chips
and communications equipment -small companies like Texas Instruments,
Dell Computer, EDS, Raytheon, National Semiconductor, Motorola, Intel,
AMD, Atmel, Applied Materials, Ball Miconductor, Dallas Semiconductor,
Nortel, Alcatel, etc, etc. The list goes on and on.

7. Medical Care - We have the research centers for cancer research,
the best burn centers and the top trauma units in the world, as well as
other large health centers. The Houston Medical center alone employees
over 65,000 people.

8. We have enough colleges to keep us getting smarter: University of
Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Texas Christian, Rice, SMU, University of
Dallas, University of Houston, Baylor, UNT University of North Texas),
Texas Women's University, etc. Ivy grows better in the South anyway.

9. We have an intelligent and energetic work force, and it isn't
restricted by a bunch of unions. Here in Texas, it's a Right to Work
State and, therefore, it's every man and women for themselves. We just
go out and get the job done. And if we don't like the way one company
operates, we get a job somewhere else.

10 We have essential control of the paper, plastics, and insurance
industries, etc.

11 In case of a foreign invasion, we have the Texas National Guard,
the Texas Air National Guard, and several military bases.
We don't have an Army, but since everybody down here has at least six
rifles and a pile of ammo, we can raise an Army in 24 hours if we need
one. If the situation really gets bad, we can always call the
Department of Public Safety and ask them to send over the Texas
Rangers.

12 We are totally self-sufficient in beef, poultry, hogs, and several
types of grain, fruit and vegetables, and let's not forget seafood from
the Gulf. Also, everybody down here knows how to cook them so that they
taste good. Don't need any food.

13 Three of the ten largest cities in the United States, and twenty-
three of the 100 largest cities in the United States, are located in
Texas. And Texas also has more land than California, New York, New
Jersey, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Maryland, Rhode
Island and Vermont combined.

14 Trade: Three of the ten largest ports in the United States are
located in Texas.

15 We also manufacture cars down here, but we don't need to. You see,
nothing rusts in Texas, so our vehicles stay beautiful and run well for
decades.

This just names a few of the items that will keep the Republic of
Texas in good shape. There isn't a thing out there that we need and
don't have.

Now to the rest of the United States under President Obama:

Since you won't have the refineries to get gas for your cars, only
President Obama will be able to drive around in his big 9 mpg SUV. The
rest of the United States will have to walk or ride bikes.

You won't have any TV as the Space Center in Houston will cut off
satellite communications.

You won't have any natural gas to heat your homes, but since Mr. Obama
has predicted global warming, you will not need the gas as long as you
survive the 2000 years it will take to get enough heat from Global
Warming.

So, in other words, go screw yourselves. Oh, that's right. You already
have!

Signed, The People of Texas

P.S. This is not a threatening letter - just a note to give you
something to think about!

SLEEP WELL TONIGHT THE EYES OF TEXAS ARE UPON YOU!!

wrong....Texas can't legally leave the union. There was a little thing called the civil war that decided that. You know...that asshole lincoln. And besides pre civil war, there was the prevailing idea that any state could voluntarily leave the union since they all "voluntarily" came into the union

We would be stupid. If we seceded from the US, the US would probably send its Army to take us back since we would not have our own army established. If this did not happen then I would think Mexico would come to war to take Tejas back. And with all the Mexicans who are now in Texas plus the Mexican army... we would be severely outnumbered.

Now to the rest of the United States under President Obama:This section is just so retarded I give up

A nice thought, and in theory, more easily doable than most other states, but thier are a LOT of problems in this scenario:

1. NASA is just south of Houston, Texas. We will control the space
industry.

Not true, Houston is a control station, the launches are in Florida and the equipment is not made in Texas

2. We refine over 85% of the gasoline in the United States.
Which is just one of the reasons the Federal Government wouldn't sit still for a sucession, get ready foir civil war.

3. Defense Industry--we have over 65% of it. The term "Don't mess with Texas," will take on a whole new meaning.
All that equipment is sold "overseas", meaning not one F-16 is sold in Texas. All foreign contracts would be void the moment we succeeded. Plus the Federal Government OWNS all those defense plants.

11 In case of a foreign invasion, we have the Texas National Guard,the Texas Air National Guard, and several military bases.
We don't have an Army, but since everybody down here has at least six
rifles and a pile of ammo, we can raise an Army in 24 hours if we need
one. If the situation really gets bad, we can always call the
Department of Public Safety and ask them to send over the Texas
Rangers.

The Texas Air National Guard, is funded by and all equipment provided by the US government, legally military installations in all states are NOT even part of that state.

Meh all they would have to do was move in on the major military bases and take the half a million American service members hostage before they have time to fully arm, then hold them hostage and negotiate for a peaceful route out of the union.

You were in the Marines you should know that won't work very well.

Dallas news reports Tony Romo tried to commit suicide last night!

Fortunately he dropped the gun and the bullet was intercepted!

you sir are wrong. Texas is the only state that can legally leave. It's in writing.

I'll show your president the same respect you showed mine.

Then why did we rejoin the union after the Civil war?

Update, straight from teh "Texas Secession" site:

Q: Doesn’t the Texas Constitution reserve the right of Texas to secede?
A: No such provision is found in the current Texas Constitution[1](adopted in 1876) or the terms of annexation.[2] However, it
does state (in Article 1, Section 1) that “Texas is a free and independent State, subject only to the Constitution of the United States.

I have a great book my daughter gave me as a gift, called "Gone to Texas". It's a real history book, not all that horseshit we learned in the eighth grade. The U.S. wanted Texas for several reasons, and that's why they gave us many concessions. One that I like is Texas has the right to divide itself into 4 separate states. Because of our size, our state forefathers felt like we might need the extra house and senate members to protect our agenda.

Oh, what a glorious day it would be given current circumstances. The annexation of Texas was messy to say the least. Some scholars say Texas (or any other state for that matter) can leave the union at any time with a specific number of votes by the state legislature. Also in the RoT constitution, the final version right up the annexation, covers this scenario. The last Texas constitution is what delt with how the republic was to be split up in no more than 4 separate states for ease of rejoining if the state decided to leave.

Obama isn't stupid. If Texas declared a peaceful Independence, and he decided to send in the troops, it would be political suicide. It could possibly portray him as a hardliner that would kill his own people for his personal agenda. Texas leaving the union is a do-able thing. Just have to rally the people behind the idea. The pieces are there, just has to be put together.

Newbies, please watch THIS before posting.
