SECEDE


"Governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed... Whenever government becomes destructive to life, liberty, or property [i.e., the pursuit of happiness], it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it... It is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security." 
— American Declaration of Independence (1776)




Maybe the time has come. A lot of Scots sure seem to think so, and Spaniards, and Ukrainians and Texans, to name just a few.


What's going on, why would this be? Because our governments are so obviously beneficial to us? Like, we're getting so much benefit from Washington here in Texas.




But "what difference does it make?" Not very much if you like being ruled by Hillary Clinton and her poverty-stricken friends inside the Beltway.




Don't get me wrong, I love Great Britain and Scotland too, but my take, for what it's worth, is that Texas should hold a referendum. Run Wendy Davies and her crew of carpetbaggers out of town and confederate with the sane Western states.

Rumours that Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury, is a sock puppet controlled by a sinister Bilderberger trifecta of Soros, Buffet and Bill Gates, are true.

That is all,

I know. As a member of the London bureau put it, "The Jocks have bottled."

Next time.

Fear mongering... and the only thing that they had to fear was fear itself. I've heard that before.

I don't know about you lot, but I'm pretty scared of "The Witch."

The hag is an effective political figure. Thoroughly amoral, lesbian, with the scruples of a wharf rat. She'd fit in with Welby's staff...or Caligula's.

Idaho's in...

Killary's certainly in a class of her own...

I figured Idaho was on. Nice.

With all due respect, I suspect that most Western states, or at least most in the Rocky Mountain Region, would not be receptive to confederation with Texas.

That isn't to say that we hate Texas or something. Rather, we're not Texas, and I've never heard anyone suggest that we'd want to be in some sort of separate country with a giant state of Texas in it. Texas is very heavily populated compared to the rest of the region, and it doesn't share a lot of the same identity we feel we have, but rather has one of its own.

For that matter, there's no succession sentiment in the rest of the region anyhow.

Thanks for the comment -- I'm sure you're right.
