All blue. Look up the election maps based on County.

Everyone knows how Austin votes, and the huge number of recent immigrants from Latin American countries are more likely to vote liberal as well (well, I mean those that are legal).

Does Texas have nukes?

Does this answer your question?

Texas


Medina Annex, at Lackland Air Force Base, in San Antonio. This facility lies in southwest San Antonio, on the south side of Rte. 90, immediately west of the junction of Interstate 410 and Rte. 90. This is one of the original Q Areas built by the Pentagon back in the late 1940s and 1950s for the storage and assembly of nuclear weapons.
Local lore has it that the underground portion is very large. I have been told that the underground base is very deep and cold, for whatever reason. The National Security Agency (NSA) also has a major presence at the Medina Annex with thousands of personnel. I have on occasion driven by the Medina Annex on Rte. 90 and the base has a very dark, ominous presence.
Camp Bullis, in northwest San Antonio, Texas, not too far from Interstate Highway 10. This is an Army training base, immediately adjacent to neighboring Camp Stewart, another Army base that keeps a much lower profile. I have been told that the Camp Bullis/Camp Stewart reservation is the site of an underground base.
Fort Hood, near Killeen, Texas, 70 miles north of Austin. This was also the site of one of the original Q Areas. I have been told that the area of Fort Hood, and the former Killeen and Gray Air Force Bases, are the site of a secret underground complex. I communicated with one ex-Fort Hood soldier whose duty area was at a checkpoint two miles inside a tunnel leading to an underground area, near the former Gray Air Force Base.

Is all that red in Texas for red necks?   Red necks aren't liberal are they?

Secession will never, ever happen.

Texas, that's the geographic area we're speaking of, can't self subsist, let alone thrive.

The voters of that great state, understand that.

OP = moot point

38 electoral votes that are guaranteed red leaving the US?  If I were a Democrat I'd be all for Texas leaving.

"Secession petitions filed in 20 states"

http://news.yahoo.co...-190210006.html

Cormac, Simbi, and me-wonders, your states had citizens signing petitions as well. Apparently, similar events occurred in '04 and '08.

War's good for the economy and the people who bankroll your president and politicians, and at least if it's a civil one America isn't invading someone else's country.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

The city and citizens, which you yesterday described to us in fiction, we will now transfer to the world of reality. It shall be the ancient city of Athens, and we will suppose that the citizens whom you imagined, were our veritable ancestors, of whom the priest spoke; they will perfectly harmonise, and there will be no inconsistency in saying that the citizens of your republic are these ancient Athenians. --  Plato's Timaeus

Thanks.. it does...
Actually I was just stirring because I find it interesting how when people don't get their way their responses are fight, flight, or switch off without even fully understanding what it is they are so annoyed over..

Only .002% of Texas' population have signed so far. Newsworthy, maybe. Troubling, not really. A "take notice" for Obama, hopefully.
But, let them check out each signature, anyone over 13 can sign.

Give Obama 4 more years and see how those signing petitions in the listed states feel then, may get better or worse.

Some were angry and vocal and adamant wanting change 4 years ago. And now when people speak out against the government, the same criticize like it's something new and shouldn't be allowed or is crazy talk?

The federal government has to acknowledge the petitions, the individuals who wrote and signed it. The state isn't involved.'now more than ever our country needs strong leadership from states like Texas' Perry says. He's neither endorsing it not supporting it, he's giving a politicians answer.
Did you read the article ? The request was written by governor Perry's secretary ,and it was adressed to the Whitehouse.
Since when does the governor acknowledge everything the public asks for,in that way ?
Almost never ?

This simply exemplifies the fact that our conservatives are more loyal to money and jesus than the nation.

Taxes are more important to them.

The left isn't any better, but both sides are cultural marxist corporate hacks. I don't get this dichotomy.
