    If Obama wins and this comes to pass, I will be heading home. Want to join us????

    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.

    I believe all states have this right under the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution.

    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 a potential scenario:

    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 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 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 people.

    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 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 , 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 10 largest cities in the United States , and 23 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, Rhod 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.

    Signed,

    The People of Texas

    I am partial to number 11 but I like the way they think down there...

    I think you are okay on all but #12. One or two severe droughts and you could have some difficulties. Better lay back some provisions or make sure you are trading terms with another country.

    Texas doesn't have any water except for stifling humidity. Perhaps, Texas should get into the SALT water osmosis business? Oh! And change the national language to Spanish.....Just kidding, I like Texas. That is where my family is from. You know, home on the range and all the cowboy stories. After all my dad was called "Big Tex." But then, that was in California! I wonder if he would have been called "Big Ohio," or "Big Rhode Island," if he had been born in one of those states?

    But you forgot #16 Texas is God's country, actually it should be at the top of list

    And only Texas is cool enough to have places with names like Frognot

    Excellent, you can become part of Mexico again and have to come across the border illegally with the rest of them, when you find out it was a bad idea! LOL.

    I know George knows how to speak some Spanish, so you guys will have an interpreter. LOL even more.
