THE FUTURE OF TEXAS

Please note that Texas is the only state with a legal right to secede
from the Union (please refer to the Texas-American Annexation Treaty of
1848). We Texans love y'all, but we'll have to take action if Kerry wins president
over Bush. We'll miss you too. Texas has given all those complainersplenty
of time to get used to the results. After seeing the whiners along the campaign route, the folks from Texas are considering taking matters into
our their hands.
Here is our solution:
Let John Kerry become President of the United States. (all 49 states.)
George W. Bush becomes the President of the Republic Of Texas.
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. Yankee states? Sorry about that.
5. Natural Gas - Again we have all we need and it's too bad about those
northern states. John Kerry will figure a way to keep them warm....
6. Computer Industry - we currently lead the nation in producing
computer chips and communications: Small places like Texas Instruments, Dell Computer, EDS, Raytheon, National Semiconductor, Motorola, Intel, AMD, Atmel, Applied Materials, Ball Semiconductor, Dallas Semiconductor,
Delphi, Nortel, Alcatel, Etc, Etc. The list goes on and on.
7. 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 planning centers.
8. We have enough colleges to keep us going: UT Texas, A&M, TexasTech,
Rice, SMU, University of Houston, Baylor, UNT, Texas Women's University,
Ivy grows better in the south anyway

9. We have a ready supply of workers. (just open the border when weneed
some more)
10. We have control of the paper industry, plastics, insurance, etc.
11. 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 has at least six rifles and a pile of ammo, we can raise an army in
24 hours if we need it. If the situation really gets bad, we can always call
Department of Public Safety and ask them to send over a couple Texas
Rangers.
12. We are totally self sufficient in beef, poultry, hogs and several
types of grain, fruit and vegetables and lets not forget seafood from the gulf.
And everybody down here knows how to cook them so that they taste good.
Don't need any food. 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 Kerry: Since you
won't have the refineries to get gas for your cars, only President Kerry will
be able to drive around in his 9 mile per gallon 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 your
communications.
You won't have any natural gas to heat your homes but since Mr. Kerry
has predicted global warming, you will not need the gas.

Signed,

The People in Texas,

Have a nice day!

problem is if Texas secede from the Union, then the troops are force to come home since they are no longer under U.S. jurisdisction...I thought you wanted to fight the sand rats of Iraq? I don't think Bush will be too happy with Texas being secede from the Union, he no longer has control of his profittering in Iraq...it goes to JF Kerry.... Might want to reconsider your decision (and before you start bashing your head in at Austin....).

There are times when I'd like Texas to exercise the other power provided for when it entered the union --- the ability to split into 5 separate states. With 10 U. S. senators I'm fairly confident that might shift the balance of power a bit more to the conservative side of the isle.

If my memory of school history is correct, I believe we also have our own Navy.
