The new U.S.A......





Ok, Folks. Texas has given you complainers plenty of time to get used to the election results.. After listening to all the whiners after the election, some folks from Real Texas have decided that we might just take matters into our own hands.

First, a little history lesson. It's our independent nature
to point out the people who enjoy the Texas Lifestyle have the right to secede and form our own country (it was in the agreement that annexed Texas as a state), whenever the people of Texas choose to do so. Some other states also have this right. The difference is, Texas has actually pulled that trigger before.

Yes, Texas was an Independent Republic before it became a state and can secede. Nothing inherently prohibits that from taking place.

Let's get this straight. John McCain, a real American hero, carried Texas by over a million votes. Texans can still smell the fires of the Twin Towers . We would also honor President Bush. George Bush simply did what any Real Texan would do and that is to go try his best to annihilate anyone who was responsible for attacking us. We don't fault him for that. We applaud that sort of behavior. It's Texas politics, Texas style.

We're ready to secede.

Don't get me wrong. We like ya'll — We just don't want to be like ya'll...

#1: Barak Obama becomes President of the United States (all the other 49 states).

#2: Ross Perot becomes the next President of the Republic of Texas and invites John McCain to be an honorary Texan. We honor our heroes in Texas and honor their service. McCain is welcome here and he can be Secretary of the Texas Navy. Native Texan George Foreman will be Secretary of Defense. After
that is all said and done, we wish Mr. Obama well. We really do.

#3. We expect one of Perot's first acts as President of the Republic will be to tear down the border wall and erect a 10' wall around Austin to keep the "Austin Weird" folks in and away from the rest of us. If they will
just pipe their Texas music out over the wall, it will keep the rest of us happy. (Just kidding my Austin relatives on that one.)

#4. Willie will be Secretary of Agriculture and music. Wonder what he will grow?

So what does Texas have to do to survive as a Republic? Here's a few things to be aware of. Texas is the 11th largest economy on the planet. We are bigger than Spain and right behind Great Britain. We are also
bigger than Russia . We are an economic force to be reckoned with. We have a constitutional amendment to balance our budget….and we do it (are you listening California?). We also have a multi-billion dollar budget surplus this year. We are so big, we have our own
power grid. Yes, that's true..
What else?
NASA is in Houston . (we will control the space industry).
We refine over 85% of the gasoline in the United States.
Defense Industry? We have over 65% of it. The term "Don't mess with Texas," will take on a whole new
meaning.
Oil - we can supply all the oil the Republic of Texas will need for the next 300 years. Obama states? Sorry about that.

As David Werst said, "We like ya'll, we just don't want to be like ya'll." You can buy oil (pronounced like ya'll) from us instead of terrorist countries that hate you. We will love you for paying so much to us instead of Saudi Arabia, Venezuela, Kuwait and others.

You don't want to 'drill baby drill' or put up with those
nasty oil wells? Well, we do and we know how to do it without polluting the land, air, and sea. BTW-We have our own ports and shipping lanes. We're also not
"waiting on our FEMA check" to rebuild Galveston . We are doing it right now as we speak.
Natural Gas - Again we have all we need and again, it's just too bad about you blue Obama states who don't want drilling. We've been driving around with those big tanks in the backs of our pickups for years now. We'll switch over to compressed natural gas. Obama will figure a way to keep ya'll warm….according to your need. Or, you could use ocean waves, or make friends
with Hugo Chavez or what's his name in Iran .

Computer Industry - we currently lead the nation in
producing computer chips and communications: Small places like Texas Instruments, Dell, EDS, Raytheon, Motorola, Intel, Austin Technology Centers, etc., etc. The list goes on and on.
Health Centers - We have the largest research centers for cancer research, the best burn centers and the top trauma units in the world, and other large health centers.
We have enough colleges to keep us going: UT, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Texas State University, Rice, SMU, TCU, University of Houston, Baylor, UNT, Texas Women's University, etc. Ivy grows better in the south anyway. By the way, we play some pretty good football and baseball at those schools.
We have a ready supply of workers (just open the
border when we need some more).

But, we won't have an illegal immigration problem. Former Texas Governor candidate Kinky Friedman solved that. He proposed we pay 5 Mexican generals a million a year to control illegal immigration-folks coming
from Mexico to Texas illegally. For every illegal that slips through, we deduct $10,000. Wonder how many will get across the border into Texas? We won't need a
Border Patrol..

We like tourism. Come stay a while. Enjoy a Cowboys game or go to Six Flags over Texas ….then go home. We don't need any more Californians or New Yorkers coming here and messing things up. Or, they could live in Austin where we can keep an eye on 'em.

We have control of the paper industry, plastics, insurance, etc. In case of a foreign invasion, we have the Texas National Guard and the Texas Air National Guard. We don't have an army but since everybody down here is heavily armed and has at least six rifles and a pile of ammo, we can raise an army in 6 hours if we need it. That's the Texas way. When the tower sniper started shooting in Austin a few years back, citizens piled out of their cars and pickups and started returning fire within 2 minutes. Our citizens are
licensed to carry handguns on their person.

We have a saying down here: "If you mess with the bull, you're gonna get the horn." And an even more remarkable finding from the past….
Average Murder per 100,000 residents in counties won by Bush: 0.1 of one percent.
Average Murder per 100,000 residents in counties won by Gore: 13.2.
In Texas, even some of our school teachers carry guns. We won't surrender our kids to nuts and terrorists without a fight. Don't even think about messing with us.
If you want the sticker, click on it…

If the situation really gets bad, we can always call the
Texas DPS and ask them to send over a couple of Texas Rangers.
We are totally self sufficient in beef, poultry, hogs and vegetable produce and everybody down here knows how to cook them so that they taste good. Don't need any food.

Arts? Bob Wills is still the king, but we also like
different types of music, Country….and….Western. We even have our own beer. Lone Star, The National Beer of Texas . 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. Just keep on reading David Werst's Real Texas Blog for more
details on how to be a Real Texan.

Now to the rest of the United States under President Obama:
Since you won't have the refineries to get gas for your cars, We'll sell you gas too. We'll call the gas company Texasco or something like that. Happy to do it.
You won't have any TV as the space center in Houston will cut off your communications or ask you to pay for the signal. It will be Texas Direct TV. Hank Jr. will move here and be in charge of programming

Did you know we don't even have an income tax?

We have all we need here in God's country and like I've already said, if we don't have it, we don't need it. We will have cheap, plentiful energy. The new Texas Secretary of Energy, T. Boone Pickens will be
putting up thousands of wind generators all over the west Texas plains and since everybody else thinks Texas is full of hot air, we might as well take advantage
of it.

Good luck. Ya'll are gonna need it.
Signed, The People of Real Texas

Yes, Texas was an Independent Republic before it became a state and can secede. Nothing inherently prohibits that from taking place.
Texas wasn't the first or the only state to "Pull the secede trigger" and if they want to secede again in 2009... like XR7-4.6 said "Don't let the door hit ya'll on the way out!"

Here's a list of the rest of the traitorous gang circa 1860.

December 20, 1860 - South Carolina became the First
January 9, 1861 - Mississippi - Second
January 10, 1861 - Florida - Third
January 11, 1861 - Alabama - Fourth
January 19, 1861 - Georgia - Fifth
January 26, 1861 - Louisiana - Sixth
February 1, 1861 - Texas - Seventh
March 16, 1861 - The Arizona Territory votes to leave the Union
April 17, 1861 - Virgina - Eighth
April 27, 1861 - West Virginia secedes from Virginia after Virginia secedes from US
May 21, 1861 - North Carolina is tenth state to secede from Union
June 24, 1861 - Tennessee becomes eleventh (and last) state to secede from US

Let's get this straight. John McCain, a real American hero, carried Texas by over a million votes. Texans can still smell the fires of the Twin Towers . We would also honor President Bush.

So what does Texas have to do to survive as a Republic? Here's a few things to be aware of.

Texas is the 11th largest economy on the planet. We are bigger than Spain and right behind Great Britain. We are also bigger than Russia.
False.

If Texas were a nation, its economy would rank as the 12th-largest in the world by Gross Domestic Product (GDP), according to the Texas Comptroller’s 2008 estimates. Details on the nations Texas previously surpassed by GDP are provided in the 2007 Comptroller's estimates.

Source: http://www.texasone.us/site/DocServer/TX_Economy_Overview.pdf?docID=2621

As of August 2008 using year 2007 figures, recently released by the World Bank.

In absolute GDP terms, Russia — at $1.291 trillion — is the world’s 11th largest economy., but it jumps to the 6th spot in terms of purchasing power parity ($2.088 trillion).

Its per capita income is at $7,650, the 78th highest in the world.

Source: http://reasonpad.com/?p=145

According to Wiki Texas is ranked 15th largest in the world based on GDP (PPP) figures.

True, Texas has it's own Power Grid, and Texas also brought us Enron.

Did you know we don't even have an income tax?
But your sales tax is 6.25% and there are other, local-level tax rates in the state of Texas are quite complex compared against local-level tax rates in other states. Texas sales tax may also be levied at the city/county/school/transportation and SPD (special purpose district) levels adding up to another 2% to the tax rate bringing it up to 8.25% in some locations.

Bottom line is Texas has one of the highest sales tax rates in the nation and of course no income tax so, it's a trade off.
