    Republic Of Texas

    THE NATION of TEXAS

    In case things get a little tough during the next few months we Texans have a plan...

    Maybe you don't know it, but 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 Americans, but we'll probably have to take action since Barack Obama won the election and is now the President of the U.S.A. We'll miss ya'll though.

    Here is what CAN happen:

    1. Barack Hussein Obama, after becoming the President of the United States , begins to try and create a socialist country, then Texas announces that it is going to secede from the Union .

    2. George W. Bush becomes 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 home 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 just 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 Misconduct, Dallas Semiconductor, Nortel, Alcatel, 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 educating and making smarter citizens: University of Texas , Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Texas Christian, Rice, SMU, University of Dallas , University of Houston , Baylor, UNT ( University of NorthTexas ), 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 , we are a Right to Work State and, therefore, it's every man and woman 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. We 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 you folks in 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.

    In other words, the rest of ya'll in the USA are screwed!

    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 'cause the eyes of Texas are on YOU!!

    One Nation Under God!!

    I was fine with pretty much everything you said except your choice for President of Texas. We need someone honorable who will actually uphold and defend the Constitution.

    Here we go again, Obamma is raping the Constitution like no other president in history. But it's that evil Patriot Act under Bush that's really bad. We are losing Soldiers worse than ever in Afghanstan but Bush LIED, people DIED in Iraq. Those Tin-Foil hats are getting tight.

    Under Bush, terrorists were actually treated like, well like TERRORISTS, but now under Obamma we people are being tortured and terrorists are set free.

    My opinion, and opinions are like Aholes, everyone has one and they occasionally stink - my opinion is George W Bush is among the BEST presidents we have ever had. Not perfect, like FDR, JFK, or Slick Willie, but pretty darn good.

    He would be my choice for President of the Republic of Texas.

    This is wishful thinking at best. Just because stuff is in the state does not mean it will remain.

    Ron Paul would make a much better choice for President than George Bush.

    Fellow Texans, I put this out to merely show that in Texas, we are self-sufficient. Obviously, it would be up to us to elect a President of the Republic. I would merely vote for W to fill that spot.

    1911: I am not quite sure I understand why you believe our means at self-sufficiency would not remain in the event we would secede? I would think our means would place us in a very "leverageable" position to trade and commerce.

    Thanks for the responses. I am somewhat disappointed there is not more since "at writing" there have been 50 views.

    That's exactly who I had in mind when I said we need someone honorable who will actually uphold and defend the Constitution. His son Rand would be good, and so would Peter Schiff or Adam Kokesh, if we could persuade them to leave their respective states.

    Bloody civil war is one likely possible outcome of secession. Fed.gov is not likely to let us go without a fight.

    From the way Ron Paul performed in the presidential debates .... I would rather vote for someone who wants us to WIN wars.

    Probably because this (or one very similar was posted before http://www.texasguntalk.com/forums/...shiloh-shooting-range/5661-country-texas.html ) and we tend to have this discussion semi-frequently on here. To be honest, while I am for secession, I do not see it happening anywhere in the near future. Sure, people are pissed, but not enough people will do anything about it.

    What "right" would the federal government have to fight against us for seceding, rather than mere arrogance, which is substantial? Our right was agreed upon by the federal government when Texas entered the Union. Could this be a reason "Obamma" wants a "civilian defense force" as discussed on Glenn Beck last night? Could be. But do you really think the Texas mindset would allow such an invasion?
