Secession now!

It will be a year ago next month that Texas governor Rick Perry called for secession:
Perry called his supporters patriots. Later, answering news reporters' questions, Perry suggested Texans might at some point get so fed up they would want to secede from the union, though he said he sees no reason why Texas should do that.

"There's a lot of different scenarios," Perry said. "We've got a great union. There's absolutely no reason to dissolve it. But if Washington continues to thumb their nose at the American people, you know, who knows what might come out of that. But Texas is a very unique place, and we're a pretty independent lot to boot."

He said when Texas entered the union in 1845 it was with the understanding it could pull out. However, according to the Texas State Library and Archives Commission, Texas negotiated the power to divide into four additional states at some point if it wanted to but not the right to secede.
President Rick Perry of Texas. I think it has a wonderful ring to it. Freed of the state's 32 representatives and 34 electoral votes (soon to be 35 and 37), our nation's politics would become healthier overnight. With any luck, they could take the states to their east along with them.
