Bad news, guys.
It looks like Texas won't be seceding from the union any time in the near future…
Texas Gov. Rick Perry fired up an anti-tax "tea party" with his stance against the federal government and for states' rights.
During his speech to hundreds in a U.S. flag-waving crowd, there were several shouts of "Secede!"
Later, answering news reporters' questions, Perry suggested Texans might at some point get so fed up they would want to secede from the union. However, Perry says he sees no reason why Texas should make such a move.
Yeah, why would Texans want to peacefully remove themselves when they can cause the rest of us so much more misery by staying in?
Why ruin a good thing?
