Lately there has been a growing trend of Tea parties and talks of secessionism. They both tend to appear more in the southern states. The tea parties don’t bother me much. They are made up of protesters who are against the increase in government spending. They are against Obama’s stimulus and his plan to help struggling homeowners. I’m okay with that. They have a right to protest. I might go to the next one on April 15th in Dallas just to see what all they have to say. Maybe I’ll take pictures. It isn’t getting much media attention, because right now the turnout is relatively low.
The other trend is talking of State Secessionism. I’m totally not cool with that. Not even the TALK of it. Glen Beck talked about it on his TV program.
Holy crap! Chuck Norris?? Really? Not only does he talk about Texas seceding, he thinks people will be staging an armed revolution. Soon. I’m starting to think I just walked into the Twilight Zone.
You know, President Bush was an awful President. Many liberals threatened to move to Canada or France and some did while he was in office. I never once heard any of them call for civil war or secession from the union.
The main reason this scares me is because I live in Texas. And Chuck Norris is okay for movies, but not as a president. What if the citizens of Texas don’t like the job he’s doing and start protesting? Will he get a stunt double to karate chop us? I don’t like the idea of this at all.
I was born and raised in Texas. I would really hate to leave. But if Chuck Norris becomes president of Texas, I’m outta here. I hope someone up North can offer me a couch to stay on. That would be the American thing to do, anyway. I’ll be a political refugee.
And another thing, does anyone else think it’s ironic that the party of Lincoln is talking about secessionism?
