Texas secession not as crazy as it sounds

LETTER TO THE EDITOR OF THE DAY!

Now over 117,000 signers

Amarillo Globe Daily, Texas secession unlikely, but not a bad idea: David Horsley used an entire column (Horsley: Don’t mess with Texas petition, Nov. 18, amarillo.com) to mock an online petition that politely asks permission for Texas to secede from the Union.

The petition itself is symbolic to the vast majority of signatories, I suspect, but this sentiment is not limited to Texas — 47 other states have similar petitions.

The point is to remind the newly elected and still-unclad emperor that, while he still has a well-paying job (unlike some 25 million Americans who don’t), he has no mandate from the people.

What he has is a responsibility and a second chance to lead a government that is intrusive and fiscally unsustainable back toward solvency, relevancy and viability.

President Barack Obama’s interpretation of the election results is clear.

Just as during his first term, he force-fed his expansion of federal spending to current and unborn generations, brazenly boasting he could do whatever he wished.

He already has reverted to street-ball smack talk, perhaps because he doesn’t know how to talk to adults in order to generate cooperation and goodwill.

Actual secession by the state of Texas is unlikely, but rebellion and resistance to this bull-headed rush to ruin is inevitable.

God save us from Obama’s arrogant folly.

The only thing I worry about is that once Texas secedes, Mexico will try to take it.

With what? A mariachi band?

There are ways to secede that aren't political.

Just like Bush 2, then.
