When the state of Texas isn’t busying itself with school board hearings on teaching creationism in public schools, or passing laws limiting the length of cheerleaders skirts, or telling Asian-Americans to Americanize their names, you’re left with the nutcase governor declaring sovereignty from U.S.
Transcript of this video:
I believe the federal government has become oppressive. It’s become oppressive in its size, its intrusion in the lives of its citizens, and its interference with the affaris of our state.
Texans need to ask themselves a question. Do they side with those in Washington who are pursuing this unprecendented expansion of power, or do they believe in individual rights and responsibilities laid down in our foundational documents.
Where’re you gonna’ stand? With an ever-growing Washington bureaucracy, or are you going to stand with the people of this state who understand the importance of state’s rights.
Texans need to stand up. They need to be heard, because the state of affairs that we find ourselves in cannot continue indefinitely…
We think it’s time to draw the line in the sand and tell Washington that no longer are we going to accept their oppressive hand in the state of Texas. That’s what this press conference, that’s what these Texans are standing up for. There is a point in time where you stand up and say enough is enough, and I think Americans, and Texans especially have reached that point.
I couldn’t agree more, Gov. Perry. I think the American people have reached “that point” too. As far as I’m concerned, Texas needs to pack its bag, fold its tent and declare itself an independent nation. The only things Texas has ever contributed to this nation is big hair and George W. Bush.
I’m sure Washington DC would be more than happy to take your seat in the Union.
