Chuck Norris for President of Texas?

Toward the end of the Clinton administration Bill Kristol once claimed that "in a democracy one cannot simultaneously love one's country and hate one's government." He was immediately ridiculed by fellow conservatives, and justly so.

When you love your country, you love the people, the culture, the history. But when your government is abusive of the people, antagonistic toward the culture, and seeks to pervert the country's history, it is difficult, if not impossible to love your government.

Our government has for many years been guilty of these transgressions.

The signers of the Declaration of Independence asserted the following;

That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience has shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

In a recent interview on the Glenn Beck radio show, Chuck Norris had the following exchange with Beck;

GLENN: Somebody asked me this morning, they said, you really believe that there's going to be trouble in the future. And I said, if this country starts to spiral out of control and, you know, and Mexico melts down or whatever, if it really starts to spiral out of control, before America allows a country to become a totalitarian country, which it would have under I think the Republicans as well in this situation; they were taking us to the same place, just slower.

NORRIS: It was slower, yeah.

GLENN: Americans will, they just, they won't stand for it. There will be parts of the country that will rise up. And they said, where's that going to come from? And I said Texas, it's going to come from Texas. Do you agree with that, Chuck, or not?

NORRIS: Oh, yeah. You know, Texas is a republic, you know. We could actually --

GLENN: It was a country before it was a state.

NORRIS: Yeah, we could break off from the union if we wanted to.

GLENN: You do, you call me.

NORRIS: Oh, yeah.

GLENN: Seriously, you do. I don't mind having that lone star on my flag. I really don't mind it. I've been out with a seam ripper looking at my flag going, I don't know, California could go. I'm just saying --

NORRIS: I may run for president of Texas. (Laughing).

Norris had more to say about this at WorldNetDaily and expounded on the "long train of abuses and usurpations" by our government which may ultimately lead to the desire of many to seek a change.
I have heard that Chuck Norris sleeps with a night light! Not that Chuck Norris is afraid of the dark, the dark is afraid of Chuck Norris. :)

The sad fact is that this is the only way we can take back our nation. I see no way to do it in a peaceful way.

Oh, 'b'! I know you will miss them. You will even be demanding that Comrade Obama force them to return to the union.
