    Texas GOP Official, Calls For 'Amicable Divorce' From 'Maggots' Who Voted For Obama

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/1...n_2100165.html

    "Why should Vermont and Texas live under the same government?" he wrote. "Let each go her own way."

    Morrison went on to express anger at the "maggots" who backed Obama, specifically calling out non-white voters, whom he accused of voting for the president on an "ethnic basis."

    Bud Kennedy of the Star-Telegram has more details.

    Republican officials in Texas have been glum about the concept of a second Obama term in the past. A judge from Lubbock predicted over the summer that the president's reelection could even lead to a civil war.
    I have an Idea. We let them leave. Let them become part of Mexico. Let them try to go it on their own and have to pay for national militia. Let them pay for their own roads, their own hospitals, and make their own Energy grid.

    We have to pay for their oil at the same rate we have to pay for the Saudi oil. IF they want to nationalize their oil production and become socialist to pay the bill, let them at it.

    I welcome their loss. Hell Puerto Rico just voted to make itself a state, I say we cut dead weight and go with the people that actually WANT to be Americans.

    Hell lets ship as many of the other asshats that think the way they do over to them before they get stripped of states rights and the protections as individuals of the constitution.

    Third world in two decades. Business would desert them to the benefit of California, and god knows, they need the revenue.

    All I know is, Obama should never visit Texas.

    It is interesting that there are so many bitter losers out there who immediately think that the answer to every issue that comes up is to secede from the Union instead of working within a Federation.

    Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo Don't let them take us out.
    We've gotta get rid of these GOPpers.

    Actually we have a Texas Navy. You can find them patroling on the San Antonio River during the Fiesta held the week of Apr 21st. San Jacinto day is our winning our freedom from Mexico. Don't send us back!

    Virginia virginia!

    The Obama people on the ground in the last two years since the census was released targeted and registered to vote three percent more of the Latino vote.

    That is the margin that he won Virginia by. If the red states are to be made purple, or blue, It's going to have to happen by getting that minority enfranchised at the polls in those states. Once that happens, the GOP will stop having to play race games at the border and drop all the immigrant crap. Essentially, to get some of that vote passed, they need to get some sort of Dream Act passed, so that the catholic Latinos feel comfortable voting with them again.

    SB 1070 needs to be apologized for, and comprehensive immigration reform has to occur fast, or the GOP will start this two year congress without the support of the largest Minority in the nation.

    Well look. I think in order for them to leave the Union legally they would have to withdraw from the union, not secede. That means it would have to do it federally through legislation with supermajority votes from Congress and ratification of the states... and so it technically won't happen.

    And that's my point.

    I'm tired of hearing the GOP machine down there whine with their mouths about the Size of the Gov't as they suck cash from the teat of the treasury.

    If Texans think they can pay their own way in the world then they need to do it.

    At this point they are biting the hand that feeds them.

    I saw this story yesterday but couldn't be arsed top share it here... Pulse is a great thingy.....

    I voted let 'em leave. Seriously, without Texas you need not worry about waiting 20 more years for the republican party to change. 38 Electoral votes down the tubes that would be divided up by New York and California based on population alone.... then we can allow Puerto Rico in... just imagine a bluer country with cheap rum at every party.... what more encouragement do you need?

    And this is the type of temper tantrum we see when those in control begin to lose power. We've also seen it with several companies already announcing layoffs because Obama won. We will see more of this to come, and it's all the more proof that Capitalism does not work-- those with the power demonstrating clear abuse of it.

    Greed. Corporate greed is the true downfall of this country. And it is a crying shame when those who are well off refuse to pay a little more just to help those who are struggling to get by. That does not sit well with me and frankly, turns my stomach.

    As far as how I voted ... I voted No and to invade if need be. Keep in mind, it is their leadership talking ... there are a huge amount of every day citizens that lives in the state and disagrees with this type of talk.

    Their best punishment is to be forced to come along for the ride.

    I can't figure out why the Latinos aren't voting Dem here. We have to have a majority by now. Here in Corpus all the canned food in the grocery stores are bi lingual (is that the proper word ?) and we have to have a majority population in Latinos.

    The most fabulously, marvelously wonderful part about all of this, is that nobody would be stuck with that darned task of redesigning the United States flag.

    Oh, and that the Republican winner-take-all state would disappear, as would an overbalance of Republican Congressional districts, and two Republican Senators (I think). But let's get the JUB'bers out first, perhaps to Albuquerque.

    Let's start with this:

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/lou-du...b_1223195.html

    Then there is apathy, a joke of a Dem party - did you notice on the ballot that if you went straight ticket Dem you didn't vote in a bunch of races because there was no Dem? If Texas doesn't go blue, the Dems are equally to blame.

    And people please. Texas isn't going anywhere.

    Your state has unique politics.

    I also believe some day that whites will, since a few centuries, be in the minority again in Texas.
    There was a time when Texas produced 1/4 of the oil for the US. We could be an OPEC nation.
    I haven't checked that 1/4 figure in quite awhile.

    No Republican would EVER allow Texas to secede. They'd lose 38 automatic votes in the electoral college.

    Besides, if you let Texas go, then Oklahoma would want to follow them.

    And Louisiana. And Mississippi. And Alabama. And Georgia. And Kansas. And Nebraska. And Wyoming....

    If they ask, let them go -- but they won't ask.

    What would be nice, though, is if someone could pull a Jedi mind trick and get the legislature and governor to approve a law requiring the electoral votes to be split proportionately.

    "Thirty-one* states allow all qualified citizens to carry concealed weapons. In those states, homosexuals should embark on organized efforts to become comfortable with guns, learn to use them safely and carry them. They should set up Pink Pistols task forces, sponsor shooting courses and help homosexuals get licensed to carry. And they should do it in a way that gets as much publicity as possible. "

    Re: Texas GOP Official, Calls For 'Amicable Divorce' From 'Maggots' Who Voted For Obama

    If the "Texas GOP Official" want a divorce, he should seek not from anyone but the state of Texas. So let the asshole move to Oklahoma.


    In the meantime, I notice that the counties of Dallas (Dallas) and Harris (Houston) are trending Democratic. In 2008, President Barack Obama won them first time for a Democrat since native son Lyndon Johnson, who then-naturally carried his home state of Texas, in the election of 1964.


    Here are some numbers:

    TEXAS
    2000: George W. Bush R+21.32
    2004: George W. Bush R+22.87
    2008: John McCain R+11.76
    2012: Mitt Romney R+15.83 (unofficial)


    DALLAS COUNTY
    2000: R+7.67
    2004: R+1.40
    2008: D+15.26
    2012: D+15.42 (unofficial)

    HARRIS COUNTY
    2000: R+11.37
    2004: R+10.19
    2008: D+1.63
    2012: D+0.05 (unofficial)


    DALLAS COUNTY-VS.-TEXAS
    2000: D+13.65
    2004: D+21.47
    2008: D+27.02
    2012: D+31.25 (unofficial)

    HARRIS COUNTY-VS.-TEXAS
    2000: D+9.95
    2004: D+12.68
    2008: D+13.39
    2012: D+15.88 (unofficial)


    Some in political circles believe the population changes are poised to put Texas in play by the arrival of 2020. These two counties are a sample of how such movement may be underway.

    A bellwether county for the state of Texas is Tarrant (Fort Worth), which tends to carry in margins close to the state. (Unofficially, Mitt Romney has carried it by R+15.71, a mere spread of 0.12% from his win of Texas.) That's one county immediately west of Dallas County. And it's the Arlington area that is home to the 2010 and 2011 American League pennant-winning Texas Rangers.

    If this trendline continues, then a number of positives can happen for Democrats which could ultimately include both Tarrant County and Texas. So it's no wonder this "GOP official" and anyone like him from Texas is in such a whiny bitch mood.

    I noticved the same thing on my ballot here in western Illinois - there were ALMOST NO Democrats on the ballot for any of the local (county, township) races. Of course both Parties were represented for the Representative and Senator who represent me at the state house in Springfield.

    NOOOO! I'd actually like (in a way) to see it done in Texas which would make it more Democratic, but I quickly realize that it's entirely inconsistent and that can very easily be abused. Which "blue" states retained their Republican majorities in the state assemblies and perhaps in the Governor's seat (or at least enough for Republicans to pass such laws)? I think Florida, Virginia, Ohio, Michigan, and Pennsylvania are ALL in that category, even after the election. If those states were to pass similar laws "in retaliation," the Electoral College map would become even more Republican than it is now.

    I don't even think that Maine and Nebraska should be splitting their Electoral votes. I feel it should be consistent "from sea to shining sea."

    States get to decide, and that's their privilege. A state could decide to give one electoral vote to any candidate who qualified for their ballot, if they wanted.

    "Thirty-one* states allow all qualified citizens to carry concealed weapons. In those states, homosexuals should embark on organized efforts to become comfortable with guns, learn to use them safely and carry them.

    From 91 to 95 Texas had a liberal governor, Anne Richards. I don't know what happened, but something went horribly wrong in Texas after her.

    He didn't think he would get votes for the financial and manpower hours needed. He aluded to it turning purple, and I have a feeling that Texas is next on the map for the Obama machine to mine for voters leading up to the second term mid term election.

    Obama's election team never really stopped for six years, and I doubt that they will stop now. This will be the way the president tries to influence the composition of the house of reps.

    I also expect lawsuits concerning gerrymandering to start popping up, which may change the layout before the mid terms. I think Texas and the swing states will be of focus in that regard.

    I get it...I wanted California to leave under Bush. I don't really have a problem with people who hate Obama because I personally hated Reagan and Bush so I know their pain.

    Raw vote. The Democrats are outnumbered. In 2008, John McCain won the state by R+11.76, yes, but in raw votes his margin in carrying Texas was more than 950,000. And in 2012, with the president's national margins having shifted (but not enough to flip the White House) toward the Republicans [Mitt Romney], the raw vote count (last I looked) was over 1.25 million.

    When you're outnumbered like that, you want to win the Electoral College and not so much worry about Texas. Even though, in 11 of the elections from 1912 to 2008 in which candidates landslided by winning four of every five states, Texas had carried every time. Campaigning and media are much different now. (The two parties aren't spending the time trying to build up 400-vote-plus Electoral College victories. Partisanship makes it apparenly not possible in this era.) Much of this are with attitudes. It's going to take more time with Texas.

    http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/lookout/...190210006.html

    Secession petitions have been filed in 20 states:

    States with citizens filing include Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas. Oddly, folks from Georgia have filed twice. Even stranger, several of the petitions come from states that went for President Barack Obama.

    ....
    Of course, this is mostly a symbolic gesture. The odds of the American government granting any state permission to go its own way are on par with winning the lottery while getting hit by a meteor while seeing Bigfoot while finding gluten-free pizza that tastes like the real thing. ....
    Texas has the most signatures at 23,000.00.

    The first Republic Governor was elected in the 70s for the first time in 110 years. Then it went all to shit. Except when Ann got it. I loved her. I see her daughter has been fooling around in politics.

    Texas can fuck off but you're worried about losing Oklahoma? At least in OK there are still a bunch of Cherokees who'd probably appreciate having their sovereignty back.

    In the meantime, I notice that the counties of Dallas (Dallas) and Harris (Houston) are trending Democratic. In 2008, President Barack Obama won them first time for a Democrat since native son Lyndon Johnson, who then-naturally carried his home state of Texas, in the election of 1964.


    Here are some numbers:

    TEXAS
    2000: George W. Bush R+21.32
    2004: George W. Bush R+22.87
    2008: John McCain R+11.76
    2012: Mitt Romney R+15.83 (unofficial)


    DALLAS COUNTY
    2000: R+7.67
    2004: R+1.40
    2008: D+15.26
    2012: D+15.42 (unofficial)

    HARRIS COUNTY
    2000: R+11.37
    2004: R+10.19
    2008: D+1.63
    2012: D+0.05 (unofficial)


    DALLAS COUNTY-VS.-TEXAS
    2000: D+13.65
    2004: D+21.47
    2008: D+27.02
    2012: D+31.25 (unofficial)

    HARRIS COUNTY-VS.-TEXAS
    2000: D+9.95
    2004: D+12.68
    2008: D+13.39
    2012: D+15.88 (unofficial)


    Some in political circles believe the population changes are poised to put Texas in play by the arrival of 2020. These two counties are a sample of how such movement may be underway.

    A bellwether county for the state of Texas is Tarrant (Fort Worth), which tends to carry in margins close to the state. (Unofficially, Mitt Romney has carried it by R+15.71, a mere spread of 0.12% from his win of Texas.) That's one county immediately west of Dallas County. And it's the Arlington area that is home to the 2010 and 2011 American League pennant-winning Texas Rangers.

    If this trendline continues, then a number of positives can happen for Democrats which could ultimately include both Tarrant County and Texas. So it's no wonder this "GOP official" and anyone like him from Texas is in such a whiny bitch mood.
    Thanks, I knew Houston was Dem as I lived there for 22 years. But I thought Dallas was more Rep.

    NOOOO! I'd actually like (in a way) to see it done in Texas which would make it more Democratic, but I quickly realize that it's entirely inconsistent and that can very easily be abused. Which "blue" states retained their Republican majorities in the state assemblies and perhaps in the Governor's seat (or at least enough for Republicans to pass such laws)? I think Florida, Virginia, Ohio, Michigan, and Pennsylvania are ALL in that category, even after the election. If those states were to pass similar laws "in retaliation," the Electoral College map would become even more Republican than it is now.

    I don't even think that Maine and Nebraska should be splitting their Electoral votes. I feel it should be consistent "from sea to shining sea."
    Our ballot wasn't that bad. I only had to vote for 2 Green and one Indy.

    I think it's pretty well blue. My mother worked in absentee ballots for 25 years for a County Clerk who was Dem. I'm pretty sure it's blue without looking it up.

    Congress is more likely to approve the creation of the Free State of Jefferson out of northern California than to allow a secession.

    "Thirty-one* states allow all qualified citizens to carry concealed weapons. In those states, homosexuals should embark on organized efforts to become comfortable with guns, learn to use them safely and carry them. They should set up Pink Pistols task forces, sponsor shooting courses and help homosexuals get licensed to carry. And they should do it in a way that gets as much publicity as possible. "

It would be hilarious if John Stewart actually got someone to go to some of these people doors with a moving van and people dressed in uniforms saying we received your petition, it has been granted but I hate to inform you that the USA owns this state so you will have to vacate in 24 hours.

    The president apparently has promised to review any voter petition that has more than 25,000 signatures on it.

    Texas hit 64,000 yesterday, but Gov Perry has indicated the state of Texas is declining to take legal action. If the people that signed that petition want to secede, they have to get rid of Perry and replace him with someone who is more secessionist than him.

    Good luck on that one.

    It would seem that the Texas Gov't has decided to also go forward with the affordable care act. Perry doesn't want to lose Texas's place at the Teat of Federal funds.

    Who would have thought that Mr Secessionist Perry would decide to not support the admittedly foolish petition because he wants the benefits of Obamacare.

    Priceless.

    The petition will not be put on the ballot for a referendum vote by Perry's exec decision.

    presidential elections have a tendency to make morally pliable politicians change sides and beliefs. It's called getting your bread buttered.

    Federal law requires a 72 hour period.

    You people are assuming that Perry has a moral, but you don't realize that he probably left it in a desk drawer somewhere.


    Texas politicians have a tradition of hyperbole - one of the best at it, and certainly the wittiest, was Ann Richards.

    After she lost, she did this Doritos commercial that consisted solely of her sitting on the corner of a desk in a repo of the governors office, eating chips - that's all; then just before it ended, she looked at the camera and said:

    "...the Cowboys never lost when I was Governor..."
