    A Bill To Fool Texans

    https://capitol.texas.gov/tlodocs/87...l/HB01359I.htm



    A BILL TO BE ENTITLED

    AN ACT relating to proposing a referendum to the people of the State of Texas on the question of whether this state should leave the United States of America and establish an independent republic.

    1. Leaving ... This act is what a home owner expects of an unwanted guest. Who would burn the house down or put it on the market because you don't see any other way to get the guest to leave? The smart money would tell him there is a ticket to Tahiti at the airport with his name on it.

    2. "This state" is a legal concoction that means the FEDERAL ZONE within the EXTERIOR BOUNDARIES of THE STATE. This would be like telling your unwanted houseguest that he is welcome to stay so long as he changes his clothes!!

    Are the People of Texas this CLUELESS?

    Got ticks?

    Let's leave (NOT)!

    if they actually vote for secession, I will be down there so fast to help them- alot more than Golead is coming this time. It is a cause worth dying for. Just think of the target rich environment along the border!

    A federation is not a nation. No federation has any element of sovereignty. Mexico is a federation. The EU is a federation. The UK is a federation. The Soviets are a federation

    In the rush to eliminate monarchies we appear to have replaced them with a legal fiction which we can't hang or poison or even figure out how to control.

    Some improvement! Mental deficients controlled by the absolutely demented because we are afraid of other mental midgets under the control of their own demons.

    The Soviets are a federation
    The Soviet Union is no more, are you referring to the RUSSIAN Federation??

    It did. For people who lived in 1860.

    Yet another word salad fail from you. THIS is a hill to die on , not sit behind a keyboard with a thesaurus trying to sound smart.
