Succeed Not Secede
November 16th, 2012
Once again, Texas is leading the nation in a less than desirable way. As of this morning over 100,000 Texans have signed a petition to secede from the United States, by far more signers than from any other state. Rather than running around collecting petitions that ask for Texas to secede, we’re working to help Texas succeed.
Our old friend Lubbock County Judge Head must surely be giddy with excitement at the thought of a secessionist army. After all this is the guy who predicted a Civil War if President Obama was to get re-elected. Lucky for him, his wartime budget was approved by the Commissioners, and he looks to have the financial resources to repel the impending Blue Beanie UN invasion of the Texas Panhandle.
The radical beliefs of Judge Head and his kind may be good for occasional laughs. But at the Texas Democratic Party, we’re focused on the real work necessary for Texas to succeed.
Succeed as in:
- Accepting $124 Billion dollars from the federal government to insure nearly 2 million Texans and generate over $400 Billion in economic growth.
- Empowering women to receive equal pay and to have the ability to make decisions about their own bodies.
- Fully funding our public schools to ensure the success of Texas’ children in the competitive world economy.
There’s a lot of work to done. And we couldn’t do it without you by our side.
Thank you for always standing with us in this fight. Even if this fight lacks the thrill of a UN invasion.
