Huzzah for Great Britain, a sovereign nation that saved its own sovereignty by the skin of its own teeth; a nation that, with the ongoing flood of illegal immigrants, was just a year or two away from losing the #Brexit vote, and with it their country forever. Power to the people!If they can do it, why can't we Texans?
Just a few years ago, the idea of seceding from my beloved United States of America sounded preposterous, unthinkable, ridiculous, the stuff of tinfoil hats...Stop and think. Can you name one area ... one topic ... one issue ... one damn thing where we have more freedom now than we did eight years ago?
But in just a few years, so much has changed, and I don't think that change is within me. In just a few years, right here in my beloved U.S. of A., through the federal government, some state governments, and most especially the mainstream media and Supreme Court, what was once unthinkable is not only thinkable and a real threat, but in some cases actual reality.
Real Freedom is sovereignty, self-determination… the right of man to choose his or her own leaders and by extension the laws they live under. The primary job of a righteous government is to protect our freedoms -- the freedom for me to swing my fist in any way I please and to protect your right not to get hit by that fist. During the Obama-era, there has been a sea change in this thinking, and to say that it has been aided and abetted by an increasingly corrupt news media would be the understatement of all time.
I didn't think so.
If you believe that I can do as I damn well please until it gets in the way of you doing what you damn well please, then you are an American. If you do not believe in imposing your morals and values on me, then you are an American.And there aren't many of us left.
Despite persistent rumors to the contrary, it is technically illegal for Texas to secede. Neither the Texas Constitution, nor the Ordinance of the Convention of Texas (aka the Terms of Annexation) provides for the secession of Texas. However, one might argue for a "Texit Laboratory."
For the good of humanity, why not try an experiment where an American state is allowed to decouple itself completely from the federal government. Maybe we'll discover that despite its many flaws, the Left is correct and we are in fact better off with a centralized federal government.Sounds pretty damn good to me!
But maybe we'll discover that without all the federal red tape and oversight and mandates that a smaller sovereignty is more dynamic and prosperous and free; that poverty and crime and unemployment will decrease, that the air and water will be cleaner, that people will be happier and freer.
And anyone who doesn't like #Texit is free to leave and move to America.
