If Texas Secedes, they won't be "America's Team"

Hey, if Texas actually does secede from the US, then the stinkin' Cowboys will no longer be dubbed "America's Team." That might be a favorable side-effect!

True, but if any state could succeed on its own, it's Texas.

The Yankees won the civil war and it wasn't by luck. Ya'herd?

Honestly though, I like the Cowboys rivalry.

Re: If Texas Secedes, they won't be "America's Team"

Secession was feasible during the Civil War era when everyone had muskets that could fire an unaccurate bullet once every 4 and half minutes. To think of a state seceding from a country that has one of the most advanced military forces on earth is laughable.

Imagine the magnitude of military might could be wrought upon the lone star state by the federal government if they chose to sucede.

In addition, mere talk of suceding by any state or government official should be grounds for dismissal from office and they should be subject to imprisonment.

If you can go to jail for not paying your taxes and impeached for an oval office BJ, imagine what would happen to you if headed a sucession from one of the most powerful nations on earth?

I'm I wrong in thinking that this thread no longer meets the Locker Room standards?

LOL...so obvious and so funny. I believe the lesson learned is that once you join the Union you can never leave. The contract is perpetual and permanent.
