Ted Cruz wants Texas to secede if ‘things become hopeless’ in the US
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said that Texas should secede if Democrats “fundamentally” destroy the U.S. but added that “he is not ready to give up on America yet.”

“If the Democrats end the filibuster, if they fundamentally destroy the country, if they pack the Supreme Court, if they make D.C. a state, if they federalize elections, if they massively expand voter fraud, there may come a point where it’s hopeless,” Cruz said while speaking at an event at Texas A&M last month.

The Republican senator was responding to a question posed by a student in the crowd who asked him how he felt about the Texas secessionist movement.

“I think Texas has a responsibility to the country, and I’m not ready to give up on America. I love this country,” he said.

It’s good to hear a sitting United States Senator as prominent as Cruz unafraid to speak his mind openly on an increasingly burning topic like this. Very striking too, even though plenty of folks are going to be displeased indeed with his reticence, which they’ll perceive as waffling or even outright duplicity. I don’t see it that way myself. I mean, think about it: when was the last time you heard a US Senator willing to discuss the mere idea of secession with the seriousness it merits, even going so far as to endorse a reclamation of the proper rights and authority of the several states, rather than laughing the whole thing off as just wild-eyed radical claptrap undeserving of adult consideration? I like the barely-veiled threat that comes next even better.

He also added that Texas has an added responsibility to the U.S. as it is currently “an amazing force keeping America from going off the cliff” and “keeping America grounded in the values that built this country.”

However, he emphasized that the country isn’t at that point where Texas would secede and while he doesn’t support the movement, he “understands the sentiment behind it.”

“We’re not there yet, and if there comes a point where it’s hopeless, then I think we take NASA, we take the military, we take the oil,” Cruz said.

Heh. Take everydamnedthing you can grab, Ted, and Godspeed to you and to the Great Republic of Texas all around.

Seeing as how there’s not a single ounce of back-off to be found anywhere on the Left nowadays, their inborn zealotry and will to destroy all opposition accelerating like Big Daddy Don Garlits dropping the hammer in his rail job after banging a meth, cocaine, and Top Fuel hotshot in the pits, the most pressing question will soon be how many of Cruz’s fellow Texans are riding along side-by-side with him on this wild run, maybe even a bit further on down the strip than he is and beginning to pull away sharpish? Because we’re a heck of a lot closer to “hopeless” than Ted seems to think, so the answer is going to matter well before anybody imagined it might, and way more than just a little bit too.

Asking for a friend, don’tchaknow.

Cruz is a silver tongued showman.
Recall his attempt to sabotage the election of Trump in favor of Hillary, his beginnings under Bush (spit), his moral “outrage” when Trump displayed a picture of his wife in retaliation for Cruz pac funding another pac that put out pictures of Melania and making claims of her being a call girl.

He’s a deep state snake.

Plus his rejection of Free Speech in connection to the Trump in Chicago
Rally. Basically saying Trump deserved it (not sure if he also believes the women in short dresses are asking for it idea).

Yea, there is that one. Really, lots more if you wish to dig them up.

BUILD a border wall around Texas, Ted, keeping South-of-the-Border illegal-aliens out, New Mexicans out, Coloradans out, Californians out, Washingtonians out, Oregonians out, Oklahomans out, Arkansinians out and Louisianans out.

Texas has the 5th largest economy in the world so, to keep it humming, station ICE agents, the Border Patrol and your National Guard at ALL ports of entry – airports, train stations, bus depots, waterfronts – to prevent any communists from relocating to your state.

DO what’s necessary, Ted.

"There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters." — Daniel Webster

“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.” – Frank Zappa

"I predict that the Bush administration will be seen by freedom-wishing Americans a generation or two hence as the hinge on the cell door locking up our freedom. When my children are my age, they will not be free in any recognizably traditional American meaning of the word. I’d tell them to emigrate, but there’s nowhere left to go. I am left with nauseating near-conviction that I am a member of the last generation in the history of the world that is minimally truly free." - Donald Surber
