Texas secession idea gaining traction

We're excited as a kid in a candy store to learn that yet another prominent Texan Republican (Tom Delay and the Governor of Texas are the other two) thinks we need a serious conversation about the possibility of Texas withdrawing from the union. Ron Paul:
[Gov. Perry] really stirred some of the liberal media, where they started screaming about: 'what is going on here, this is un-American.' I heard one individual say 'this is treasonous to even talk about it.' Well, they don't know their history very well, because when you think about it ... it is very American to talk about secession. That's how we came in being. Thirteen colonies seceded from the British and established a new country. So secession is a very much American principle.
Totally right. And irrespective of what Paul says the "liberal media" says about his Governor's idea, the flesh and blood liberals with whom I cavort are in love with the idea of losing Texas. For starters, a Texas succession would make electing a GOP president just about impossible. Also, it will make prominent Texan Republicans such as Tom Delay, Ron Paul and Gov. Perry officially and inarguably irrelevant.

So Texas, don't let us keep you. Please go. We ask only that you pay for your own fence, and try not to cry if, at some future date, we invade you for your oil.
