There is, thankfully, a shred of hope: there is a secession movement which we definitely should support:
The movement is complete with an interim/provisional government and even a constitution. Here are a coupla clips:
PreambleI'm all for it! Just think of the wonderful implications!! We could then deport our entire sitting government to the new Republic, so they'd have a leg up.
We, the people of the Republic of Texas by the grace and beneficence of Creator God, do ordain and reestablish our nation's lawful position among the sovereign nations of the earth in accordance with common law and the Law of Nations, and by these articles do reestablish the government of the Republic of Texas in this its Interim mode. This action formally dissolves the military rule that has existed over Texas since 1865 . . .
The Interim Government of the Republic of Texas as established by the Texians’ Declaration of Independence of March 29, 2003, hereby adopts as the basis of its foundation, the will of the People in their inherent right to alter, abolish, or reform their government as expressed in the Plans and Powers of the Provisional Government of Texas of November 13, 1835; Plans and Powers of the Provisional Government of Texas of December 13, 1995, as amended through 2002, Declaration of Independence of March 2, 1836; the Constitution of the Republic of Texas, done March 17, 1836; the Constitutions of Texas (1845, 1861, 1865, 1869, 1876), the Laws of the Republic of Texas 1836-1845, and the Common Law of Texas . . .
Now that we're on a roll, we could . . .
build a bridge between Key West and Havana, then sell Martin, Palm Beach, Broward, Miami-Dade, and Monroe counties to Cuba . . .
preemptively nuke both India and Pakistan, so Gates' and Buffett's billions of bucks could be put to reconstructive use . . .
elevate the Pentagon. Oh, yeah, that's already been tried. Sorry.
Got any other bright ideas?
