As a Texan, I'm actually kinda jealous.
I hope you and other Texans are inspired to give secession a try.Hope it works. I've been looking for a free country to move to.Although there's always New Hampshire, since the move was triggered back in February:https://freestateproject.org/
They still have a Queen - but at least they've escaped the Emperor.Well done, limeys!
Didn't think they had it in them. I wouldn't worry too much though, their Lefties are just as capable of ruining a good thing as our Left does.
well, I think it would be worth staying if we can drag the US kicking and screaming back in the right direction, but we GAVE you a perfectly good presidential candidate and look at what happened.We ARE leading the Article 5 convention movement...that's something.http://www.breitbart.com/texas/2016/01/08/texas-governor-calls-for-article-v-constitutional-convention/
I wish them well. Now if we could leave the UN, that would be cool.Seems like most elections these days are close to 50/50.
I don't know what surprises me more, that England had enough grit left in her to tell the EU to F#@& Off, or that Scotland may opt for independence just to stay with the EU.
The elites are convinced that human beings are not yet ready for self-government.We're a pretty good example of devolving away from it, right here.As the population continues to expand, the social entropy rises and all you have is mobs competing for power over others.Jefferson was right. Government is inherently overrated.
Even if you don't care about the particulars of that election, I'd think you'd be pro-decentralization of power...?
Guess that free dental care wasn't all it was cracked up to be
The Europeans belong to a union? No wonder none of them works very hard.
Britain was never committed to the relationship. They never changed their currency to the Euro. Their attitude was 'sure I'll sleep with you but I won't marry you' or more accurately, 'We can shack up, but there ain't gonna be no joint checking account.'
I don't understand why they'd want to leave, the last place with 'Union' in their name was a tremendous success.So now Germany controls most of Europe....how ironic.
Now that GB has left the EU I predict the following will occur...the bezan shall be huge and black, and the eyes thereof red with the blood of living creatures, and the whore of Babylon shall ride forth on a three-headed serpent, and throughout the lands, there will be a great rubbing of parts. Yeeah...for the demon shall bear a nine-bladed sword. NINE-bladed! Not two or five or seven, but NINE, which he will wield on all wretched sinners, sinners just like you, sir, and the horns shall be on the head, with which there shall, in that time, be *rumors* of things going astray, and there shall be a great confusion as to where things really are, and nobody will really know where lieth those little things with the sort of raffia work base that has an attachment. At this time, a friend shall lose his friend's hammer and the young shall not know where lieth the things possessed by their fathers that their fathers put there only just the night before, about eight o'clock. Yea, it is written in the book of Cyril that great calamity's shall be upon the land.*
