I sincerely hope Kos was being facetious with his post this morning. Aside from the fact that a hostile nation on our Southern border is absolutely unacceptable (Imagine Iran where Texas is) this issue was settled almost 150 years ago. Abraham Lincoln himself (along with about 600,000 other Americans) died so that our Union would not perish from the earth. Their sacrifice is not something that's old and dusty that can be ignored as mere statistical history. Their sacrifice is as new and fresh as each breath of air I take into my lungs. They did not die in vain. I don't give a flying rats ass if every man woman and child in Texas and Louisiana signs those fucking petitions, it's not going to happen.
There are 15 U.S. Military bases in Texas along with the Johnson Space Center and 4 more U.S. Military bases in Louisiana... Does anyone think we're going to just hand all that over free and clear to a bunch of fucking traitors? I don't think so. So, all of you people telling these Secessionists not to let the door hit them in the ass need to STFU!
