I know this guy is being funny and all, but I swear, if they do it, I’ll move there like a shot. And for what it’s worth, I’ll be more than happy to do my part by walking a post on whatever barricade they’ll end up having to put up to keep out starving Blue Staters when their failed nation collapses under the weight of its own folly:
Dear Texas, despite all of your shortcomings, I am here to inform you:
You are the last best hope of mankind.
The collectivists now have the votes in the Senate to pass the Health Care Enslavement Act. Everything else is procedure. Therefore I must recognize that now, to my utter horror…
I no longer live in a free country.
I will be forced by the power of the State to pay for a stranger’s MRI. I will be forced to beg the government for permission to get a heart transplant.
I am a slave. The government now has complete power over everything that constitutes my humanity, for if they control my health and body, they control me.
It appears then that, since collectivists now control the United States and wish to enslave me and my family, I must consider other options. Shall I move? To where? Name a country that is not collectivist in one form or another, or under threat of imminent domination. Europe is under the crushing velvet glove of socialism, Russia is a madhouse, all else froth and insanity, corruption and tyranny.
I want my United States, but it is no longer the United States. It is gone and has been since at least the 1950’s, as Rome was no longer Rome after the madness of the twelve Caesars, but still trundled on under momentum and past glories.
…Which brings me to the most important thing I know about Texas.
Dear big beautiful Texas with all your gorgeous pageant women and crappy food: you are the only state that joined our Union with a treaty allowing for legal secession.
Here’s the “long story short,” your favorite phrase, Dear Texas:
You can get out now and no one will stop you.
And they damned well should, while the gettin’s good. Like I said, it’s a funny piece, but as the Democrat Socialist wreckers continue destroying America That Was and get the current liberal-fascist tyranny more irrevocably entrenched, it’s going to start looking one hell of a lot more serious.
Our despotic government is a disgraceful mockery of what the Founders intended. Soon there will be only three options for dealing with it: armed, organized insurrection; quiet subversion and sabotage on an individual level, in every small way that can be conceived of; or dropping off the grid and isolating yourself as much as humanly possible.
Nobody wants to think seriously about this sort of thing, but the liberal-fascists simply will not stop until all freedom-loving people have their backs against the wall. I expect that before long, a peaceful move by Texas to secede will stop being a radical, unthinkable idea, and start looking more and more reasonable with each passing Democrat Socialist depredation.
