Thats funny, I think the current Democratic platform is more similar to the platform of the 1990's Robert Dole. If any platform is close to the fascist agenda it is the Tea Party Platform. Ayn Rand, the atheist soviet style libertarian, and social darwinist, it the goddess of the current republican Tea Party. Too bad most Tea Party folks, don't look one nanometer below the surface. Enjoy some good barbecue.

That is a good idea, why wait. If Texas wont go solo country, lets kick them out. Lets watch all the business flow Texas' way. Or, not.
Obama's policies are being blocked on every occasion by the opposition party, and despite that there has been several years of private sector growth, despite the republican efforts to shut down the public sector. Bush almost destroyed the U.S. both with his foreign horrific policies, and his domestic idiocy. Texas should say, Bush is not really from Texas, he was an actual plant from Connecticut. Best to disown the guy, he really is not one of your own.
A lot of half truths, referencing material which is not historically explicit, and comparing apples, with fruit flies, not even oranges. Enjoy some good barbecue between posts.
Scientific method would first mean that you find the actual variables which really had an impact, not variables, which may have inadvertently changed at the same time. Correlation, does not mean causation. A deeper analysis and good barbecue, would be helpful to your attempt at the scientific method. I think your paradigm is loaded with false positives and false negatives.
Derivatives, fraud, and lack of good barbecue.

the attacks are not equal. The current democratic party is trying to fix problems. The current republican party is trying to tear everything down. There is no equivalence. No longer is there a conservative party and a liberal party battling over laws, and coming to compromise. Now there is a right wing lunatic reactionary republican party, and a moderate to conservative democratic party. We need a new party to fill in the liberal and progressive void.

@Dcarter And despite the great Texas Barbecue, Texas is cooking up ways to limit the votes, especially for democratic voting blocs.
I think he would likely be eligible to run Canada. I would be fine if he would just go up North and do that.
I thought Cruz did renounce his Canadian Citizenship, but Obama was born in Hawaii, after it had become a state. Cruz born on foreign ground. He may not be eligible to be President. Maybe he should run for office in Canada.
There really is no liberal party, although there are a few libs left in the democrats. Basicly the democratic party is where the republican party was in the 1990's, and the republican party is so far to the right, I keep looking for them in 1930's Germany.
I would be fine visiting Texas with my passport. Time to remove this good barbecue, take women's voting rights away, state. Texas and a few other states are still governing as if the South won the Civil War, and if Romney won the last election. It may be the Lone Star State, but there may be a tad of delusion throughout the land. Hope to visit Riverwalk in San Antonio soon.

I think if that is the case, Texas is our new neighbor. A country between the U.S.A. and Mexico.
I will probably stop in on Texas this year for some barbecue, whether it is the lone star state, or the lone star country.
Just let Texas be its own country, a buffer between Mexico and the USA.
@MagnusThunderson I think they should put it up to a referendum. And if Texas votes to stay in the Union, I think the other states should have a referendum, to see if they want to kick them out!. Let the people decide.
@AaronPachlhofer @ariess No. I think Texas should keep its cultural identity and become its own country. I would gladly use my passport to visit Texas. So many folks in Texas want to leave the union, so just do it. It is large enough to be its own country, and I am sure the USA would have some excellent treaties with their new best friend Texas. Kind of an amicable split. I do not think that they should fall in line. They should be who they are. Problem is that the lone star state should be the lone star country. I would gladly add Texas to the list of foreign countries that I would visit frequently.
@AaronPachlhofer @ariess NO, You can have your cultural identity, but stop with the overwhelming Texas corruption.

Sounds like a scene from Midnight Cowboy.
