    Here's an audio of Perry saying they can leave the Union if they choose.

    Jan, 2007


    Nov, 2008


    Inauguration, 2005


    NYC

    Need I go on??

    Why is it that when angry liberals take to the streets it's a sign of horrible administration policy and a failed presidency. When angry conservatives take to the streets it's a sign of secession, revolution, hoping for the president to fail, etc... ???

    People I talked to today were absolutely furious about these protests. They couldn't believe that all those rich stupid republicans were yelling in the street because they wanted to pay even less in taxes and take away money from police departments and garbage men, etc.

    It was really surprising to see how angry liberals got over this.

    I'm not surprised.

    As far as I know, the right to protest/assemble peaceably is right in the Constitution. I wasn't on the side of those who protested the war in Iraq, nor am I on the side of the people protesting taxes. I am however glad to see some protesting at all. Too much apathy in this country.

    And, maybe I'm oblivious, but I don't understand why liberals would get angry about this. It's a protest about something that the folks who are protesting believe in. Just like I had no idea why many conservatives got angry about folks protesting the war.

    No... y'all vowed to leave the country.
    Unfortunately, y'all lied.

    I've often noted the utter hypocrisy of the liberal core... who seem to pride themselves most on their intellectualism, yet are the first to scream and shout and throw hissy fits and tantrums in public. The continuing campus disruptions when conservatives speak are a perfect example of their childishness and their rage. Here's a fine example from UNC just two days ago...

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yj0tYPblZqs"]YouTube - Police mace students at UNC protest, April 14th, 2009[/ame]

    These are angry, often violent, people.

    And really base, too. I lurk on a liberal board... it's the most foul-mouthed bunch you can imagine. So yes, I can see their rage over the tax protests.

    Do any of you right wingers know what happend last time Texas as well as 10 other states that it would be okay to use the10th Amendment to tear this country apart 149 years ago?

    Don't you realized the issue of seccession has already been settled with a war that pretty much dessimated the southeast part of our nation for at least a generation?

    What are you people thinking? What is Rick Perry thinking? Are you thinking??

    I get the symbolism of the tea parties, but leave it at that, symbolism.

    That some things are worth fighting for, even if you might lose, and that doing so might make a real mess?

    The only thing the Civil War "settled" was that Lincoln was willing to shred the Constitution and abandon his oath of office under the presumed virtue of "saving the Union."

    Given that the Radical Republicans under Thad Stevens and Charles Sumner compelled the former Confederate States to be "readmitted" to the Union, they established that secession was indeed possible and plausible, and even permissible.
