Texas Governor Rick Perry recently shared he was displeased with the liberal mumbo jumbo happening in the Obama Administration. He reminded us of Texas’ unique position in the United States, having once been its own country. The quotes:
“Texas is a unique place. When we came into the union in 1845, one of the issues was that we would be able to leave if we decided to do that. My hope is that America and Washington in particular pays attention.”
“We’ve got a great union. There’s absolutely no reason to dissolve it. But if Washington continues to thumb their nose at the American people, who knows what may come of that.”
The 10 reasons Hil Street doesn’t want Texas to become its own country:
1. I don’t want to have to get a visa to visit my mom. You have to go to Houston to get a visa and it takes a whole day.
2. If everything is bigger in Texas … what would get Texas-sized if we were left on our own? My hair? Taxes? My waistline?
3. I am not a native Texan. Do I have to get a green card?
4. Anita doesn’t dress as well as Michelle.
5. I have read Gone With the Wind. Secession gets bad, people. I have wood blinds and can not fashion a dress out of them.
6. Austin would have very little in common with the New Country of Texas. At least we have a sister city in the United States.
7. I know LOL Cats are legal in the United States. I need to stay in a country where that law is clearly stated.
8. I have never successfully made cookies or a cake in the shape of Texas.
9. I live with a 5th generation Texan. He often reminds me that Texas was once its own country, and I don’t want to hear that Texas is its own country … again.
10. It would get boring watching the Mavs play the Spurs and then play the Rockets over and over again. It would get really boring only watching the Rangers play the Astros.
