Ok... I'm going to put this in a spoiler because it is of a political nature... But man... This has GOT to be one of the FUNNIEST things I've ever seen in my life~! Really. Be forewarned... This is fall-off-your-chair-pissing-your-pants hilarious~!
Seriously... I'll be pissing myself laughing over this for YEARS!
Funny that you posted this because I was reading sometime last year that the state of Texas was the only state in the union that has a clause that allows them to secede from the union. The reasoning was because Texas was a republic before entering the union.
I don't know if it would required a vote of the Texas people or not. It was a big issue a year or so back when Gov. Perry jokingly said we should secede from the union, the news networks were having a field day with that....
