Where Do I Donate?

A scraggly bunch of protesters calling itself the "Texas Nationalist Movement" is demanding a statewide vote on the topic of secession.   The small but loud contingent of unhappy rabble is upset with federal mandates and taxes.  They feel that the government in Washington, D.C. has gotten out of control and is spending their hard earned taxes on things that they don't want.

I, for one, would like for the national government to be relieved of the responsibility of taking care of Texas - and Arizona, too, for that matter.  Let them manage their own affairs, maintain their own highways, hospitals, schools, universities, prisons, postal delivery, and national defense, while meeting the needs of their poor, sick, and elderly.  I predict that it would be a sobering experience.

Hey, yahoos, if you get this piece of nonsense to the ballot, put me down for a donation!

And if you find that governing yourselves ain't all that you'd imagined, check out the possibility of joining Mexico - then I would definitely support that danged fence!

We have, as a nation, litigated the issue of secession by way of a bloody bit of history called the Civil War.

Texas may not secede from the Union.

Texas may exercise its rights under the agreement by which the Republic of Texas joined the Republic of the United States of America.

Under that scenario Texas may dissolve into five separate States of the Union.

When I first heard that I thought some Texan was slinging some Texas Bull. He wasn't. I looked up that document and Texas can become 5 other states.

That would be great. D.C. would attain statehood in the process played out in Washington. We'd see several new Democratic Senators.

I urge Texas to dissolve into five separate states. Amen.
