Will Texas secede if Obama wins?

The Lone Stranger and Tontoette

Please note that 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, but we'll probably have to take action if Barack Obama
wins the election. We'll miss you too.

Here is what can happen:

1: Barack Hussein Obama is President of the United States, and Texas secedes
from the Union in summer of 2013.

2: George W. Bush will become 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 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

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 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 Microconductor, Dallas Semiconductor, Nortel,
Alcatel, etc, 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

8. We have enough colleges to keep us getting smarter: University of
Texas , Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Texas Christian, Rice, SMU, University
of Dallas , University of Houston , Baylor, UNT ( University of North
Texas ), Texas Women's University, etc. Ivy grows better in the South

9. We have an intelligent and energetic work force, and it isn't restricted
by a bunch of unions. Here in Texas , it's a Right to Work State and,
therefore, it's every man and women 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.
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 inTexas. 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 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 5 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.

The People of Texas

P.S. This is not a threatening letter - just a note to give you something to
think about!

Hey Jimmy! When you moving?

"Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance. If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them." - Karl Popper

“It’s the presumption that Obama knows how all these industries ought to be operating better than people who have spent their lives in those industries, and a general cockiness going back to before he was president, and the fact that he has no experience whatever in managing anything. Only someone who has never had the responsibility for managing anything could believe he could manage just about everything.” - Thomas Sowell in Reason Magazine
