Texas Republicans are already using the s-word.

One party official from Southeast Texas calls for -- not secession -- separation.

"Why should Vermont and Texas live under the same government?" writes Hardin County Republican treasurer Peter Morrison, a Ron Paul supporter and author of a race-heavy Tea Party newsletter.

"Let each go her own way," he writes, demanding an "amicable divorce" from the U.S. and from the "maggots" who re-elected President Obama.

Evoking the history of Confederate soldiers who refused to surrender after Gettysburg, Morrison, 33, calls for Texans to fight "in hopes that Providence might shine upon our cause."

Morrison is particularly angry at Asian-Americans and Hispanics who backed Obama, accusing them of voting on an "ethnic basis."

Apparently some Libertarians don't want to chang the system, they want to leave the system and create their own. There was a piece about the fantasy of Texas leaving the union on NPR some months ago, which was very interesting. It had a large economy, but would be lacking in a lot of things and have to trade on it's oil wealth.

This is proof that Obama is the most divisive president the United States has ever had.

Wouldn't happen. But if it did, the GOP wouldn't be winning any presidential elections for awhile. Isn't Texas the most reliable red state with the most electoral votes?

That's true. Rick Perry might even be a bigger scumbag. They aren't exactly hindered by consistency in their complaints.

Texas: Seceded from Mexico, fought for independence, wasn't recognized by the US at first, finally got accepted into the US, and now it wants to secede.

Shut up Texas.

America was founded upon the idea of leaving behind the State (of Father England). The idea that disagreeing with what the state has to say/do and wanting no part of it is "treasonous" is downright laughable coming from someone claiming to be American.

You forgot the best part, the Texans who immigrated to Mexico and fought for independence where also illegal immigrants.

How could they have been illegal immigrants at that point in time?

America takes Puerto Rico, and Texas becomes an independent country. Country stays even with 50 states. If so, I'm moving to Texas!

Lmao. That's an opinion piece by some no-name writer who interviewed the treasurer of some unheard of county in the southeast part of Texas, one of the largest states in the nation. Hell, I live in Texas and I've never head of Hardin County. That's not "Texas being Texas", it's some idiot who was given a mouthpiece.

The United States was also founded under the ideal of Perpetual Union, also there was that bit of unpleasantness back in the 1860s over the subject, so there's nothing laughable at all about it.

Disregarding the meaningless rhetoric used by both campaigns to distinguish themselves, Romney and President Obama are fundamentally the same. Former President Bush spoke highly of President Obama, and yet somehow he is perceived as radically different...

It's what a two party system does to a population. We have people backing candidates not because of their opinions or ideologies, but because they're either blue or red. It happens on both sides and it's why politics are a joke.

Texas would last all of two days on it's own before falling into chaos. (Exactly how and why was spelled out by Keith Olbermann back when that dunce Rick Perry floated that idea when Obamacare was signed into law) Besides, Latino's will be the majority there sooner than later, they'd just vote to rejoin the Union. (in fact Texas, Arizona, and Georgia may all be in play as soon as 2016)

all bark no bite, though I'm sure the Democrats would love the idea of the Republicans losing 38 electoral votes, but that's not going to happen (secession I mean) , instead the Democrats will gain those 38 electoral votes and Republicans will lose them when Texas goes blue by 2020 and that'll pretty much be the end of the party as far as presidential ambitions go

The US empire will end eventually. It will collapse from within due to a failed government. You simply can't have one entity ruling over 300,000,000 people and make them all happy and free.

Morrison is particularly angry at Asian-Americans and Hispanics who backed Obama, accusing them of voting on an "ethnic basis."

I find it cute that this loser makes this assumption that Asian-Americans and Hispanics voted for Obama "on an ethnic basis". It had obviously had nothing to do with what he stands for, or his policies, or his proven record as president, or any of the spectrum of perfectly legitimate reasons people chose Obama over Romney.

Looks like a racist, sounds like a racist... *sees others as racist.

Whites voted for Obama. Blacks voted for Obama. Asian-Americans, Hispaniscs and Native-Americans voted for Obama. In large numbers. I think the only thing we can conclude here is that they all have a deep-seated hatred for the white man.

How else are we to explain them not voting for Romney? I mean wow, he's so amazing.

Perhaps you missed the "GOP Official" part of the headline? It isn't some random dude off the street. It's an elected official advocating his state secede from the union and calling over 50% of the country "maggots". Yeah, that makes the news.

His behaviour in various ME visits is what started most of those talks right? I mean, I do not believe he is a Muslim, and I couldn't care less if he was. Also, I don't understand how black = Muslim, but alright

Don't believe me? Do a quick Google search. I personally don't think he's Muslim - if he says he's a Christian then I think he's a Christian. But someone asked for evidence, and I gave it.
