Skip to comments."Save Texas. It's the last." Words of warning.

Not long ago I was telling a customer that the product she was testing was from Oregon. The lady, who was probably in her early 70's, shivered when I mentioned Oregon and said she used to live there. I asked her if Oregon was too cold for her. She said, "No I ran away from Oregon to live in Texas." So I said, "Well good. I was reading a news article just this morning about how Texas is thriving with a budget surplus and low unemployment. She replied, "Oh I know, I've lived here for a while now. I ran away from Oregon because there are too many crazies there." (I suspected by crazies she meant leftists but was being circumspect since she did not know me.)
She went on to say she used to live in New York but left to get away from the crazies. She went to Oregon which was fine till the crazies from California started moving there too. "I love Texas," she said. "Save Texas it's the last." I said,"I know just what you mean and I agree with you." And she said again, "I love Texas. Save Texas. It's the last."
I had noticed from the beginning of our exchange that she had a foreign accent. So before she left I asked her where she was from originally. "I am from Russia, she said. "Save Texas. It's the last."
Wow, that gave me goosebumps.
I was thinking the very same thing.
It is true. When the executive orders come out, Texans will ignore it.
This may sound self serving, I just pray like hell that if a succession movement takes hold Texas will allow their neighbors to join in. Jesus, this is getting bad.
Remember the Alamo!!!!
Better hurry. Texas is turning blue fast.
Time for Texas to pull the eject handle on the union.
Sure hope Texans have some scootch over room ‘cause they may just become a sanctuary state for U.S. citizens.
God DID bless Texas.
I am starting to get a little concerned about all the California folk moving here.
In the early ‘80’s we were flooded with unemployed workers from Michigan for a couple of yrs. They came in their salt rusted cars.
They were always telling us how they did it up north, so much so that we actually printed bumper stickers that said,
“I dont give a damn how you did it up north”
True story. Now if the California people will keep their kooky ideas to themselves we can all get along...

After growing up around liberals, I moved to Texas because I appreciate the way Texans do things.
I’m not here to keep pushing the fail. I’m here to get the hell away from it!
Can we start kicking liberals out?
Only in Texas do they raise young heroes like these.
It’s especially meaningful to me because I always tell my spouse that Texas will be the last bastion of freedom in the world if it comes to that. And sure enough a complete stranger who has lived under communism confirmed it to me.
I won’t ever forget that encounter or that lady.
your state and few others are all thats left. I do hope when the time comes ( and its coming ) I will be able to pitch in and help with the fight.
Lots of nice talk but the state is still turning bluer with every passing year.
The state is being overrun from both north and south and simply ignoring that fact doesn’t change it.
My wife and I were in Oregon over the holidays - we used to live there and still have relatives in and around Portland. I can attest that they are all bat-s**t crazy. If you have Netflix, watch a couple of episodes of “Portlandia” - it is spot on.
Happy to be back home in Texas. We may, indeed, be the final frontier.
Amen, folks. Amen. Tears in my eyes.
Is Texas getting a new king? I didn't know there was a prince in line to succeed the throne...
I am employed by a very high end retail company MANY of my
regular clients are from Russia and fled many years ago for the freedom
our country. Almost ALL have their own businesses and cannot believe
what we are letting happen to our wonderful country, THEY ALL can see
what is coming, also FYI all have sent their children to our American
schools and universities and have become so disappointed how their
own children do not see how important FREEDOM is!!! I speak very
openly with many of my clients I frankly do not care how my employer
would feel about this!!! GO TEXAS YOU ARE OUR LAST STAND!!!

There could be a lot of people moving to Texas when The Republic of Texas secedes.
Just keep in mind please.
Factories in America keep moving to Asia. For more than 20 years now, more and more.
Asia is now for the first time, taking the lead.
Sure stand up for Texas, but also stand up for America.
I can’t remember where I read it, maybe on Free Republic or maybe some other forum. But somewhere a poster wrote. “Texas is my country now.”
I hope it has not really come to that. But if it ever does, I am glad I live in Texas.
I’d like to build a fence around our whole state and keep the furiners out!
Anyone who wasn’t born here would have to leave, and you’d need a passport if you wanted to visit for a while..........
Okay—I don’t mean it (sorta_
Oh, great....we live in Oregon....and NO, not in Portlandia. We were in Texas over the holidays...visited Hill Country which seems nice, but the southern part of the state, shall we say, is heading toward Mexicoville? (We were in San Antonio). May try spending a month in the Hill Country some time...but moving there seems unlikely. When the water runs out, there’s going to be REAL problems.
I think she is correct, Idaho is pretty much filled up now but there is plenty of room for Californians left in Texas.
I hope you do not mind, I forwarded this information on to Governor Perry. This is the stuff he needs to consider and hear every day of the week.
We need a new bumper sticker. “I don’t give a damn how you did in in LA LA land.”
“Cowboy Up. Texas isn’t LA LA land.”
I moved back to TX this last summer after having lived in CA for several years and am surprised at the advancement liberalism has taken here. Nanny statism, etc. I am trying to warn everyone not to let it happen. Still better than CA and not too late to stop it now.
Don’t mind at all. I was thinking of contacting him myself.
If we can turn back the tide in Michigan, it can be turned back just about anywhere short of the northeast and west coast. It just takes enough people willing to stand their ground and fight.
You might also want to send it to Dewhurst and Strauss. They are our real problems and Strauss was just re-elected.
I saw a fellow Texan this evening who was picking up my son to go to a duck hunt tomorrow. The man said he believes it will start, sooner than later, and that the communist nationalist socialist revolutionaries are doing this to mask the economic collapse to occur in the very near future. He expects battle action within a very short time period. My friend who is a crack shot said he expects to start out as a Colonel and end up as a general. He was not kidding. It appears that people are organizing already.
It also had the side effect of me not being there during the event, but that was ok.
My daughter lives in OR, Corvallis it is so beautiful and most of the people are very friendly. It seems that property rights are eroding quickly there; can’t collect rainwater or target practice on your own land (or so I hear).
I see what you did there.
Not really. It's harsh here in Texas, too. If it don't have a stinger in it's tail, it's got one in it's mouth. Hell, our grass has burrs. Summers are killers with the heat and the drought. And it's full of us rednecks that won't put up with liberal crap.
Thanks for the Texas post...a timely warning.
“Texas is not where you were born but a State of Mind, Heart and Attitude”
“Leave us alone to live our lives in peace and we will get along fine, if that is not satisfactory, we will deal with it.”
The O-B_tard has a few things to learn. FUBO!
'Tis true, unfortunately.
Not to mention the “far ain’ts”, ticks the size of walnuts and the giant flying cockroaches.....
Yes, but more important, . 18 minutes that defined Texas. Fitting conquest of an arrogant Despot.
They sure don’t want to hit bottom first. We did that in Michigan but its taken a lot of pain to start turning things around.
I hope they let me in. I promise to abide by the Constitution.
Can assure you Texas is no where near blue. The Texas attitude is contagious, even some of the Mexicans growing up here have it and even Kalifornia and Damn Yankee immigrants get it. Maybe not Michigan, last time they blackened the sky with U-hauls they didn't stay long, thank God. Nothing personal meant CC. You seem to be an exception.
But even so, what is Texas going to do with the liberals who are already there?
You might want to take another look at a red blue map of Texas.
