Another term for that is sedition. We could bring back "America love it or leave it" bumperstickers people had during the Vietnam War.<br />
Texas will be blue in two more election cycles. These clowns are on their way out and can't stand it.<br />
I suspect that if Obama were "white" they would have problem with him.
They and their lawyer should receive a "summons" to the nearest federal courthouse for a chat. Then it would be that subversive's choice whether or not they go home that night.
*sigh* I'm thinking you mean if Obama were "white", they would not have a problem with him. I'm not an Obama fan, so why does that have to mean that I have an issue with his skin color. I could care less. I also disagree about the fact that Texas can secede is not democracy. It is our constitutional right. I don't think it would be a smart decision if we did though.
You know I really like you CRS, but I just don't like being called a racist, just because I don't like what a president does or wants to do.
Texas going on its own would not be a smart move for many reasons. I understand that the question of secession from the United States was settled in 1865. Should Congress grant secession to a state or territory it would be another matter but very unlikely.
I agree with the reasoning of why Texas should not secede, which is what I wrote in my comment. Partly due to what you wrote in your comment, studmuffin11. So, please read my full comments, before you make assumptions.
*sigh*....I am not a racist. I'm conservative, but I'm not a Republican. I have not liked most of the Republican presidents for may years now. I make no assumptions about liberals as a whole or conservatives as a whole. We are all individuals with different views. I usually vote for the most consitutional people in offices, which sometimes happens to be a Democrat. I didn't vote for either Bush and I did not vote for Romney. I voted Libertarian this go around.
Affinityterra, I'm sorry if you understood me to be calling you a racist. I truly know you are not. Many on the right use coded language like "my country" or "our White House." Those phrases are dog whistles. I'm a lefty with a lot of issues with Obama, such as indefinite detention, domestic use of drones, drug policy and not prosecuting the Wall Street criminals who caused this never ending recession. We on the left have at least as many problems with the President and his policies as those on the right.
We had more Libertarians on the ballot in this county than Democrats. I believe all countywide seats are still held by the Rs.
Thank you CRS, I appreciate that.
Unfortionatly, we are stuck in a two party system. Though there are other choices, it's not likely to get voted in unless you are D or R. All the bashing back and forth is a distraction from all the real issues.
An ideal debate would have a number of parties. How about Ds, Rs, Libertarians and Greens? There is no reason why Greens and Libertarians should be structurally excluded from a national dialogue. The third parties would pick up a lot of votes (and contributions) if they got the same coverage as the two main ones.
I completly agree.
