    I don't want anyone to take offense if your political affiliation should happen to fall in the Kerry Camp, but I received this email this afternoon and being the proud Texan that I am I just had to share this with y'all.

    Remember.... this is all in good fun!

    <<<<< >>>>>>>>>

    Please note that Texas is the only state with a legal right to
    secede from the Union (please refer to the Texas- American
    Annexation Treaty of 1848).

    We Texans love y'all, but we'll have to take action if Kerry wins
    president over Bush. We'll miss you too.

    Texas has given all those complainers plenty of time to get used to the results. After seeing the whiners along the campaign route, the folks from Texas are considering taking matters into our own hands.

    Here is our solution:

    1. Let John Kerry become President of the United States. (all 49
    states).

    2. George W. Bush becomes the President of the republic of Texas. So
    what does Texas have to do to survive as a Republic?

    3. NASA is just south of Houston, Texas. (we will control the space
    industry).

    4. We refine over 85% of the gasoline in the United States.

    5. Defense Industry. (we have over 65% of it) The term "Don't mess with
    Texas," will take on a whole new meaning.

    6. Oil - we can supply all the oil that the Republic of Texas will need
    for the next 300 years. Yankee states? Sorry about that.

    7. Natural Gas - Again we have all we need and it's too bad about those
    northern states. John Kerry will figure a way to keep them warm....

    8. Computer Industry - we currently lead the nation in producing
    computer chips and communications: Small places like Texas
    Instruments, Dell Computer, EDS, Raytheon, National Semiconductor,
    Motorola, Intel, AMD, Atmel, Applied Materials, Ball Semiconductor,
    Dallas Semiconductor, Delphi, Nortel, Alcatel, Etc., Etc., The list
    goes on and on.

    9. Health Centers - We have the largest research centers for Cancer
    research, the best burn centers and the top trauma units in the
    world and other large health planning centers.

    10. We have enough colleges to keep us going: UT., Texas A&M, Texas
    Tech, Rice, SMU, University of Houston, Baylor, UNT, Lamar, etc. Ivy
    grows better in the south anyway

    11. We have a ready supply of workers. (just open the border when we
    need some more)

    12. We have control of the paper industry, plastics, insurance, etc.,

    13. In case of a foreign invasion, we have the Texas National Guard and
    the Texas Air National Guard. We don't have an army but since
    everybody down here has at least six rifles and a pile of ammo, we
    can raise an army in 24 hours if we need it. If the situation
    really gets bad, we can always call Department of Public Safety and
    ask them to send over a couple Texas Rangers.

    14. We are totally self sufficient in beef, poultry, hogs and several
    types of grain, fruit and vegetables and lets not forget seafood
    from the gulf. And everybody down here knows how to cook them so
    that they taste good. Don't need any food.

    This just names a few of the items that will keep the Republic of Texas
    in good shape. There isn't a thing out there that we need and don't
    have.

    Now to the rest of the United States under President Kerry:
    Since you won't have the refineries to get gas for your cars, only
    President Kerry will be able to drive around in his 9 mile per gallon
    SUV. The rest of the United States will have to walk or ride bikes.

    You won't have any TV as the space center in Houston will cut off your
    communications.

    You won't have any natural gas to heat your homes but since Mr. Kerry
    has predicted global warming, you will not need the gas.

    Signed,

    The People in Texas

    Since when does Bush honor treaties that other presidents have signed?

    I didn't say annexation treaty. I said treaty. And, honestly, my post was supposed to be in good fun as well.

    Personally, I wouldn't mind if Texas decided to secede.

    Texans want to secede, non-Texans don't like us anyways (mainly because of jealousy)......

    SOUNDS TO ME LIKE WE SHOULD SECEDE!
