In all reality, the Reps can't stop it anyway. The Dems have full ownership of that turd, so let them have it.

How realistic do you think it is, for all these people pushing for Texas to secede? Closer than it ever has been or will be, or will it never happen?

Totally unrealistic . Obama got a shit load of votes in Texas . In fact he won in Bexar county (San Antonio) and I'm sure did the same in the larger cities like DFW and Houston .

Im sure republicans would do the exact same thing.

Politics isnt fair when it's the other party doing it.

So you're saying that this is perfectly alright then? Seriously?


As I recall, during the Bush reign republicans had control of all three and didn't do even one thing like this.

Im not saying it's "alright", but it happens and should be a surprise to no one.

Parties throw in measures to bills in hopes that they fail in voting. Shit like this is nothing different.

It boils down to hypocrisy and the failures of our political system.

The govt will have to do something that Texans as a unified group of people would see as unforgivable.
So no, conditions are no where good enough for a major movement.

They won't always be in power

I don't see Texas pulling out, but I do see a major part of the population getting really pissed off as the water flushes out of the bowl.

McCain took Texas 56%-44%, just for a reference. I'm willing to bet that after the last three weeks, half of that 44% would change if they could.

Remember when Pelosi had the lights and cameras shut off when the Republicans tried to get something together to ease gasoline prices?

Real classy cunt, that one.

You have to love how sneaky the Dems are. However if the Republicans had done it, there would be screams of bloody murder

The majority of Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arkansas, KS, MS, GA, AL and many other southern states who see through the BS of this cocksucker voted against him.

The south is being castrated by the north all over again.

No. Reagan came out after two terms at 78, and folks acted like he was Moses himself...
