    Actually we were a Nation before we became a State. Prior to being an independent nation Texas was a part of Mexico, remember the Alamo?

    Every state in the nation was part of something else before conquered in the name of the United States. No state was uninhabited.

    If you want to grossly oversimplify things, sure. Most of us are not so daft as to indulge such nonsense, however.

    It's not an oversimplification. My comment wasn't directed at generalizations.

    Texas was part of Mexico, the majority of the Great Plain states were part of France, the west states and Florida were part of Spain and Mexico, and Alaska was part of Russia.

    AUSTIN -- Republican Gov. Rick Perry insisted Thursday that his remarks about secession were not intended as an argument that Texas should leave the union, but Democrats still called his comments reckless and anti-American.

    The same "it's anti-American" crap the Democrats mentioned in the article are spewing is the same thing they probably got called by Republicans on other issues they were standing up for.

    Its funny and sad at the same time how the tables turn.

    The problem is that it has ignited a segment of the party and the country which won't be dissuaded by a disavowal. He opened Pandora's Box and left it open long enough for some people to be energized by this dangerous idea.

    It was a reckless statement and nothing good will come from it.

    I've lost any faith and respect I may have had for Perry.

    It was like shouting "FIRE" in a crowded theater.

    Not everyone will rush out in a panic and maybe no one will be trampled to death, but the utterance has that potential in these unsettled times.
