At an anti-tax rally held at the Austin City Hall back in April 15th, 2009, Governor Rick Perry mentioned that Texas had a right to secede from the United States. He said that Washington officials have moved away from limited government and is burdening American citizens with debt and taxes. He proclaimed that the economy of his state was fairly strong in light of the economic mess in other states and in the federal budget. Rick Perry suggested that seceding from the union could be a benefit to Texas in the long run.
That was then and now is now. While still just a whisper among some state legislatures, there seems to be more talk now among Representatives as to the legality and procedures required for a state to excuse itself from the growing mess in Washington.
Personally, I would like to see 49 of the states all take a step backward and leave Washington in their rear view mirror. The new country thus formed could re-adopt the Constitution minus the infected, puss-filled sore that is Capitol Hill. We could call the new collective, The ‘New’ United States with a requirement that all Democrats relocate to Washington. Hey you guys, be sure and say hi to Nancy for me.
Now that’s thinking outside the box!
