    Car registration fee's doubled? My tax and registration fees for all 3 of my cars have been roughly the same for years. I still have one that is due in May. It's slightly more then last year by $8.

    The whole sales tax increase is bull****. Schwarzenegger is an idiot when it comes to budgeting.

    What compromise are you speaking of?

    Re: Wake up call: Texas gov. Back resolution affirming sovereignty

    I imagine Governor Perry is now on DHS's list of 'rightwing extremists.'

    Where was this nonsense when Bush was dragging us into two wars, increasing the size of government, spending us into oblivion and shredding the Constitution?
    We tried to resolve the problem peacefully for 12-years.
    After 911 and the Anthrax attacks that followed right after changed the world.

    You could say... "we tried peace, give war a chance"... and it worked.
    Iraq, America and the world is way better off today due to Bush 43's acting on the support given to him by Congress... more support than Bush 41 received for going into Gulf War 1.

    You Libs are a difficult lot to please. Always shifting the goal posts.

    After GW1 we fulfilled the UN Mandate and YOU folks cried that Bush 41 should have gone in and got rid of Saddam then. (And had he done it you folks would have screamed bloody murder and that 41 was the worst kind of "war monger".

    Clinton guts the military, says we can fight a 2-front war and then you complain the Forces aren't ready for battle... vehicles aren't up-armored; complain when Rummy said you go with the army you have... not the one you wish for. Complain we don't have enough troops... despite Clinton claiming we could fight on two fronts.

    You vote for a war and then move the posts again, this time crapping on the troops, generals, and Commander in Chief. Using it as a political weapon.

    That Slippery One, is the left's behavior and an example of real "nonsense".

    You guys are the worst sore losers ever. More than half the country rejected the right wing philosophy and you just can't bear to "take it like a man".
    Yes, Obama won... but how?
    Media Malpractice How Obama Got Elected and Palin Was Targeted

    Remember, The Iraq War was put to a vote in 2004... Bush won handily.
    Talk about sore losers! Add to that... 2000... where Algore tried to thieve an election ... an election he was minutes from conceding. (Nixon didn't even sink that low when he had extremely good cause to dispute a close election and blatant corruption in The Community Organizer's city and state.

    We did not vote for the war and turn our backs on the troops when they needed our support the most; you folks did that... and how!

    We're not sore... we're simply being the loyal opposition.
    You don't require one of our votes... the only way to slow or stop Obama's nonsense is to inform the public the enormous costs that come with "Change".
    To illustrate the wrongheadedness of his ideas.

    It's our only "Hope".
    You think we should lie down and keep quiet in such a circumstance?

    Has the Left ever done this?
    Hell no, you folks are willing to sink so low as use war votes as political votes.

    There's no legal penalty for flying a flag any way you want.

    However, there's this myth that under official flag display protocols, the Texas flag may be flown at the same height as the US flag, whereas every other state should be lower. The supposed rationale behind it is that Texas was once an independent republic, its own country.

    Well, so were Vermont, California, and Hawaii.

    In reality, the flag protocols recognize NO state as being "allowed" to fly at the same height as the US flag. All states are equal in that regard, and subordinate to the US.

    If anyone were to sucede, Texas would be the number one canidate.

    They bring in as much GDP as Canada, and on average every $1.90 a Texan pays in federal taxes, they get a dollar back in entitlements.

    Prior to the civil war we did have the right to secede.

    It takes much more then GDP to secede.

    California has a GDP about $500 billion higher then Texas and is on the same GDP level as France, Italy, and Spain. Texas is on the same level of Canada, Mexico, and South Korea.

    California also has some of the largest, if not the largest, international trade, agriculture, technology, and entertainment sectors to further it's ability to be self-sustaining. There really isn't much California imports from other states.

    I must say Texas is a much better place to hold a business for the average person.

    I'm fairly certain that the second part is wrong at least based on the stats I have seen. Table: Per-Capita Tax Burden and Return on Tax Dollar

    According to that it looks like Texas gets back 97 cents for every dollar, so for $1.90 it seems like they would be getting $1.84 back.

    We still do, but would Obama do as Lincoln did and try no compromise?

    Since Obama talks so highly of Lincoln I would think he would do the same as Lincoln.

    [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_active_autonomist_and_secessionist_movemen ts"]There are large very active successionist movements in Spain, Italy and just about every country in the world.[/ame]

    On average countries are suceding and making new countries more than they used to.

    It all matters on how much they want it and if conditions are suitable for succession.

    If Texas wants it enough, they can take it.
