Governor Teabagger: Rick Perry Suggests at Tea Party that Texas Could Secede

Gov. Rick Perry of Texas is really getting caught up in the nutcase moment.  Gov. Teabag attended three Texas tea parties today and is apparently taking the states’ rights case he made yesterday beyond the Tenth Amendment:

Perry repeated his running theme that Texas’ economy is in relatively good shape compared with other states and with the “federal budget mess.” Many in the crowd held signs deriding President Barack Obama and the $786 billion federal economic stimulus package.

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.”

    As soon as Texas pays us back for the $750 billion the US taxpayers laid out to bail out the Texas S&L scum in the 90′s, I say we throw the ungrateful morons out. We will keep Padre Island for our trouble.

      Hey Bob, I hate to tell you this, but the US needs us (Texas) more then we need it. Texas by itself, has the 15th largest economy in the world. In addition, Texas is the largest exporter of goods in the United States, Texas currently grosses more than $100 billion a year in trade with other nations. You may not like it, but facts are facts, the US NEEDS Texas. Period. Don’t hate on us just because your state hasn’t figured out how to it right.
