To wit: Rick Perry's discussion of Texas seceeding if Obama keeps being a Democrat isn't that at all, and furthermore how dare you:
presently no screen name assures us Perry is only for secession when elections don't go his way:
Yes he did speak about it and w/barry as president, why not. So now he may be running - so, of course, there is no need anymore for succession - anti-American Barry will be gone.
wolfman23601 knows it was only hypothetical:
He suggested Texas could hypothetically secede. He did not advocate it; however, in a country of uneducated masses and bumper sticker campaigns, the event may well cause him problems.
I wonder how Freepers would react if Obama hypothetically discussed banning guns?
Bearshouse thinks Perry was just joking but also serious:
Actually, Perry’s comments were made and taken tongue in cheek as notice to the federal government that Texas has an independent streak and there is just so much of their garbage that we can take. Those of us that heard the comments understood that we would not seriously secede but also know that there comes a point when you either submit or fight back.
Dudoight thinks Texans have a special relatinoship with English that yankees don't understand:
You don’t understand wry Texas talk. Texas IS the only state that has the right to secede.
Native generational Texans have a style of expressing themselves that is creative and unique.
