Meanwhile, the Texas secession movement grows. And no, while it is unlikely to succeed, it's not a joke. President Obama can no more allow Texas to leave the union than Abraham Lincoln could let the south leave more than a hundred years ago. It's easy to make fun of Texans, but as the south left to protect slavery, some Texans want to leave because their state is becoming a majority minority state. That is if it hasn't already become a state without a majority group. Of course, many of the Hispanics in Texas aren't citizens (yet) and can't vote, but those who are citizens are growing. Many (white) conservative Texans can't stand the idea of a black President, and they hate the idea of being a minority a whole lot more. Funny thing is, lots of Mexicans supported the Texas revolution for the same reason that many Anglo Texans did. Santa Ana was a dictator who ruled by decree. Kind of what Mohamed Morsi wants to do in Egypt.
