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.
