An Open Letter to the People of the United States from the People Of Texas

An Open Letter to the People of the United States from the People Of Texas

All hope is not lost, at least not for me … Thank God I live in Texas

Please note that Texas is the only state with a legal right to secede from the Union. (Reference the Texas-American Annexation Treaty of 1848.)

We Texans love y’all, but we’ll probably have to take action since Barack Obama won the election. We’ll miss you too.

Here is what could happen with Barack Hussein Obama as President of the United States, and if Texas secedes from the Union in the summer of 2013.

1. Rick Perry will become the President of the Republic of Texas. You might not think that he talks too pretty, but we like the way he talks. So what does Texas have to do to survive as a Republic?

2. NASA is just south of Houston, Texas . We will control the space industry.

3. We refine over 85% of the gasoline in the United States.

4. Defense Industry-we have over 65% of it. The term “Don’t mess with Texas,” will take on a whole new meaning.

4-A. Oil - we can supply all the oil that the Republic of Texas will need for the next 300 years. What will the other states do? Gee, we don’t know. Why not ask Obama?

5. Natural Gas - again we have all we need, and it’s too bad about those Northern States. John Kerry and Al Gore will have to figure out a way to keep them warm.

6. Computer Industry - we lead the nation in producing computer chips and communications equipment -small companies like Texas Instruments, Dell Computer, EDS, Raytheon, National Semiconductor, Motorola, Intel, AMD, Atmel, Applied Materials, Ball Microconductor, Dallas Semiconductor, Nortel, Alcatel, etc. The list goes on and on.

7. Medical Care - We have the research centers for cancer research, the best burn centers and the top trauma units in the world, as well as other large health centers. The Houston Medical Center alone employees over 65,000 people.

8. We have enough colleges to keep us getting smarter: University of Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Texas Christian, Rice, SMU, University of Dallas, University of Houston, Baylor, UNT (University of North Texas ), Texas Women’s University, etc. Ivy grows better in the South anyway.

9. We have an intelligent and energetic work force, and it isn’t restricted by a bunch of unions. Here in Texas, it’s a Right to Work State and, therefore, it’s every man and women for themselves. We just go out and get the job done. And if we don’t like the way one company operates, we get a job somewhere else.

10. We have essential control of the paper, plastics, and insurance industries, etc.

11. In case of a foreign invasion, we have the Texas National Guard, the Texas Air National Guard, and several military bases. 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 one. If the situation really gets bad, we can always call the Department of Public Safety and ask them to send over the Texas Rangers. (not the ball team)

12. We are totally self-sufficient in beef, poultry, hogs, and several types of grain, fruit and vegetables, and let’s not forget seafood from the Gulf. Also, everybody down here knows how to cook them so that they taste good. Don’t need any food.

13. Three of the ten largest cities in the United States, and twenty- three of the 100 largest cities in the United States, are located in Texas. And Texas also has more land than California, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii , Massachusetts , Maryland, Rhode Island and Vermont combined.

14. Trade: Three of the ten largest ports in the United States are located in Texas.

15. We also manufacture cars down here, but we don’t need to. You see, nothing rusts in Texas, so our vehicles stay beautiful and run well for decades. 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 Obama: Since you won’t have the refineries to get gas for your cars, only President Obama will be able to drive around in his big 5 mpg 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 satellite communications. You won’t have any natural gas to heat your homes, but since Mr. Obama has predicted global warming, you will not need the gas as long as you survive the 2000 years it will take to get enough heat from Global Warming.

Signed, The People of Texas

P.S. This is not a threatening letter - just a note to give you something to think about!

  1. Katie says:

    Can I move to Texas Fred? I will be quiet (sort of), have a few guns, and will do my bit.

    I could stay with my niece.

  2. Bluebonnet Sue says:

    I have my computer mouse in hand ready to click on “in favor of” on the Texas Secession Petition! 🙂

  3. Right Handed Cowboy says:

    Lets ROCK & ROLL baby…

  4. Bloviating Zeppelin says:

    All excellent reasons.

    Wouldn’t that just be a hoot — ??


  5. Bunkerville says:

    I have been in your fair state. I too promise if need be, to lock and load with you. I wont be a burden, the bunker is well stocked and easily transportable. 2 years supply ought to do it!

  6. BobF says:

    My step-son lives in Texas so we should be welcome there. Beside, I have a whole lot of guns and they ain’t the hunting type either although I do have a nice 308 Remington 788.

    Seriously, my wife said Wednesday morning that if Texas were to succeed, she’s moving down there with or without me. She’s fed up with what taking place in this nation…so am I.

  7. SKK says:

    Will we need passports? What about currency? Will you offer a decent exchange rate?

  8. mrchuck says:

    Well folks,,, this just may become a reality.
    Do not know for sure.
    As a born Texan, whatever Texas decides is fine with me,,,why,,,, because my powder is dry,,,,God bless.

  9. BobF says:

    Looks like there’s a petition by both Louisiana and Texas for succession on the White House website.

    • TexasFred says:

      Yeah, like the WH is going to listen to a petition… I hate to sound negative but petitions are NOT going to get the job done…

      Plus, those petitions themselves will scare MANY potential signers off, you have to have a account to sign…

      This isn’t a matter for which you petition the Socialist Bastard in Chief to resolve, it’s one where Texans stand and demand that the TEXAS state government declare itself FREE of the tyranny that IS the United(?) States of America!


  10. the unit says:

    Not in Texas, but genes came from there. Why not just resign, like Patraeus?

  11. himself9 says:

    I’d move back in half a heart beat. Folks have no idea how I loved the folks there or the brotherhood offered to a new neighbor. And this time i would not be unarmed.

  12. Hoosier Army Mom says:

    God Bless Texas and Texan’s. Y’all give the rest of us hope. 🙂
