Here is the letter I just sent to Texas Governor Rick Perry's office.
Please, take control of our state and secede.
I do not have a lot time to write a long drawn out message because I am at work. I work offshore in the oil field, and I just finished my shift. I work 12 hours a day, 7 days a week for 6 weeks straight. Then I come home for 2 weeks, and then do it all over again.
With President Obama running the country I am afraid there will not be much of a country left when he is done. If there is, then I fear the damage he will do will be irreversible.
I work hard for the things that I have and enjoy my life. I do not mind working hard. Hard work and dedication pay off 100% of the time, I learned this very important aspect of life when I earned my Eagle Scout when I was 15 years old, and received it at the ceremonies of my high school, Marine Military Academy, in Harlingen, TX..
When I received my Eagle Scout I received flags that were flown over the capitol buildings of both the United States of America, and the Texas Capital Building. These flags represent bravery, and sacrifice made by few for the greater good. The blood that was spilled so these flags could fly high is imprinted in our heritage, and our lives.. as Americans, and as Texans. Our president will not even help his own ambassador, when he knows he is under attack. That Governor Perry is definitely not an American, and nor a Texan. If he will do this, turn a blind eye to his own envoy, then why should we expect nothing less towards us.
I understand that a secession would require a huge amount of change within Texas, and I along with others, would be willing to accept these changes. Perhaps even more than I believe, and yourself included.
I know that nothing can be done from a single piece of mail, or letter. However, as the Governor of our state, I ask that you at least look into the steps necessary to allow the people of your state to vote.
It is time for Texans to be brave, and stand up for the greater good of our fellow Americans, and if they will not stand up beside us, and tell this president, "enough is enough" then we shall take care of ourselves, as this would be even more evident of a nation that is no longer unified.
Please Governor Perry, consider my position, take care of your fellow Texans.
I replace my name with x's.. theres some people here on the lunatic fringe.. :)
