(Editor’s Note: The Watchdog makes a brilliant observation about how Texas could take a TSA no-fly zone and spin it into wealth. And I can think of a hell of a lot more reasons for Texas to secede. Eventually, Texas secession will happen as a result of (a) some untenable Federal confrontation, or (b) the meltdown of the economy and the need for Texas’ very survival. But don’t look for secession to come from Austin.)
Before anyone says “we have to keep the union together. We go against secession of Texas.” These folks do not understand the people of the Lone Star State. It is about self-preservation and survival of the economic and culture legacy that sets Texas apart from the rest of the country. Many in Texas now see another reason why Texas should to declare independence. Texas has an unique culture, economy and people. Many Texans take much pride in their history from the settlement under Spanish rule to the Battle of San Jacinto that freed Texas from a tyrannical Mexican Military Dictator, General Antonio Lopez Santa Anna. This despot thought he was above the law and the Mexican constitution. His attitude oppressing the people of Texas caused Mexico lose the war trying to control the people.
Texas by its location can be more than just another republic. I can see many airlines doing transcontinental flights moving to Texas bypassing the rest of the United States if they do not have to deal with the TSA. The cost of fuel in an oil rich country would go down significantly which would benefit the airlines passing down the savings to the customers. The Tourist industry would boom because many people taking transcontinental flights might stay in Houston to go to the beach in Galveston, go to San Antonio to see the Alamo and might go to Dallas…a nice stop to enjoy a couple of days of Texas hospitality . This is just one of the benefits that will happen when Texas achieves independence. What is holding Texas back? Washington DC and the control freaks in Congress all the way to the White House.
The United States violated the Annexation treaty of 1846, which was never ratified by the US Senate. When Obama tries to confiscate the guns out of the hands of Texans or declare a siege over the skies if Texas reigned in the TSA, we could see an outcry for secession and demand for a political divorce from Washington DC. I believe Texas will do so much better on their own. As the 10th largest economy in the world and the second most populous state in America, Texas must secede for its own survival to preserve its economic and cultural heritage. Texas is tired of the Obama White House attacking the Texas economy which is very independent and insulated from the rest of the country. The Texas economy is still chugging along regardless were other states have theirs at a complete standstill.
Texas is the only state that flies its flag at equal height to the American Flag because Texas is still a Republic, not just a state. If the President keeps pushing Texas…If the State legislators ignores the will of the people…the people of Texas will make their own way to achieve independence. Texas should secede because the people are too independent-minded and serious about preserving its historical and cultural heritage. The United States is better off without Texas and Texas is better off without the Union. If Obama keeps messing with Texas like he is playing dictator, Texas could spell the end to the imperial empire in Washington. If the White House decides to try to conquer it will be the downfall of his reign. Washington is broken beyond repair.
Texas must secede for its own survival. There are no more options left.
Secession is the Hope For Mankind. Who will be first?
