So the Huffington Post is reporting that Texas Gov. Rick Perry has his panties in a bunch because a black man is President he and other conservatives like himself don’t like Obama and Congress’s stance on some issues.
AUSTIN, Texas — Texas Gov. Rick Perry fired up an anti-tax “tea party” Wednesday with his stance against the federal government and for states’ rights as some in his U.S. flag-waving audience shouted, “Secede!”
An animated Perry told the crowd at Austin City Hall — one of three tea parties he was attending across the state — that officials in Washington have abandoned the country’s founding principles of limited government. He said the federal government is strangling Americans with taxation, spending and debt.
Perry repeated his running theme that Texas’ economy is in relatively good shape compared with other states and with the “federal budget mess.” Many in the crowd held signs deriding President Barack Obama and the $786 billion federal economic stimulus package.
Perry called his supporters patriots. Later, answering news reporters’ questions, Perry suggested Texans might at some point get so fed up they would want to secede from the union, though he said he sees no reason why Texas should do that.
“There’s a lot of different scenarios,” Perry said. “We’ve got a great union. There’s absolutely no reason to dissolve it. But if Washington continues to thumb their nose at the American people, you know, who knows what might come out of that. But Texas is a very unique place, and we’re a pretty independent lot to boot.”
Are we supposed to be scared or summin? Be out then. The only decent things in Texas are the city of Austin and my brother Wilson, both which can relocate easily. Honestly, like REAL TALK. What in the hell has Texas ever done for us? It brought us TWO President Bushes, them racist hillbillies who dragged that innocent black man with their car and killed him and that stupid Jessica Simpson and Beyonce. I mean really. I think the quality of life would be much better for this country, if the state and everything in it were to do how Bobby Brown did New Edition, throw the dueces and go solo. They’ll do all right in the beginning, but eventually they will come back beggin’ when their money is gone and they all strung out.
