As of today 3/13/15, my top three are...

1. Carson
2. Rubio
3. Walker

Not a prediction of any sort, just my top three if I could make the nomination myself based on what I know today


Any thought about the GOP field? Tee it up.

1. Giuliani
2. Ted Nugent
3. Donald Trump

Kid Rock for Vice President

In all seriousness, Tom Selleck. He would win in a landslide.

As of today I think I'd agree with you. Walker intrigues me. He sure seems to stir the ire of Democrats, yet he is still here. He appears to have waded through all the stuff in Wisconsin, even though we had promises on this board that he would be indicted and removed from office on several different occasions. We'll see how these guys hold up as the heat gets turned up.

The State of Texas, by law, must vote to remain part of or the Union or secede every year before the legislature may proceed.

Gov. Perry threaded to secede after obama refused to do his Constitutional responsibility to protect our border and allow illegal aliens, human and drug traffickers and terrorists to come into the U.S. unfettered.

What part of States Rights, as dictated by the U.S. Constitution do you not understand?
What part of the Presidents first responsibility of National Security do you not understand?

The president did his job, he got a clean DHS bill passed, which republicans refused to do. republicans had over a year do do something about immigration, they refused to, so thats on them entirely, but you are too simple minded to figure that out.

Again, total BS. Perry's position at the time:
One Texas GOP official who likened Obama voters to "maggots" and called for an "amicable divorce" between Texas and the United States, prompted Texas Gov. Rick Perry to weigh in. In an e-mail to a Dallas Morning News reporter on Monday afternoon, the governor's press secretary affirmed for anyone who might be wondering that her boss "believes in the greatness of our Union and [that] nothing should be done to change it." Nov. 14, 2012
http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/history/2012/11/texas_seces sion_how_the_lone_star_state_could_mess_with_the_rest_of_us.html

In 2009, when Perry was trying to court the Tea Party, he said this:
Those soothing words are a far cry from the ones Gov. Perry uttered back in 2009, at a Tea Party rally in Austin. Though he hadn't yet announced his candidacy for the GOP presidential nomination, Perry was already trafficking in the kind of bellicosely anti-Washington language that would earn him his brief moment as the GOP's front-runner, before he flamed out spectacularly during the primaries. At that rally, Perry answered a reporter's question about the notion of state sovereignty with all the menacing subtlety of a Lone Star loan shark. "We've got a great union," he said. "There's absolutely no reason to dissolve it. But if Washington continues to thumb their nose at the American people, you know, who knows what might come out of that?"*

As to Texas' "right to secede", that is a total myth:
Right before he made that comment, Perry had told the same reporter that "when [Texas] came in the union in 1845, one of the issues was that we would be able to leave, if we decided to do that." To the extent that Texas' future right to secede from the United States may have been discussed, argued, and/or wished for upon the state's annexation, the governor was technically correct in saying that it was an "issue." But Perry's wording suggested that a right to secede was built, as some sort of term or condition, into the original joint resolution of Congress that brought the Republic of Texas into the union.
That simply isn't true. Texas' so-called "right" to secede is no more than a politically emboldening myth, the boastful residue of the decade it spent as a sovereign nation before joining America. There's simply nothing in the state's official annexation papers, or in any other contemporaneous documents for that matter, to suggest otherwise. Nevertheless, over the last century and half this myth has proven harder to kill than a mound of East Texas fire ants.

In case you haven't figured it out by now, Rick Perry is an idiot.

Texas, just like any other state, cannot legally secede from the Union. And, just like any other state, is under the rule of federal law at all times, no matter what state laws it may enact. Federal Law always trumps state law. Always.

Just couldn't let this BS regarding my home state pass without comment.

Right before he made that comment, Perry had told the same reporter that "when [Texas] came in the union in 1845, one of the issues was that we would be able to leave, if we decided to do that." To the extent that Texas' future right to secede from the United States may have been discussed, argued, and/or wished for upon the state's annexation, the governor was technically correct in saying that it was an "issue." But Perry's wording suggested that a right to secede was built, as some sort of term or condition, into the original joint resolution of Congress that brought the Republic of Texas into the union.
That simply isn't true. Texas' so-called "right" to secede is no more than a politically emboldening myth, the boastful residue of the decade it spent as a sovereign nation before joining America. There's simply nothing in the state's official annexation papers, or in any other contemporaneous documents for that matter, to suggest otherwise. Nevertheless, over the last century and half this myth has proven harder to kill than a mound of East Texas fire ants.

In case you haven't figured it out by now, Rick Perry is an idiot.
quote:

What part of States Rights, as dictated by the U.S. Constitution do you not understand?
What part of the Presidents first responsibility of National Security do you not understand?


Texas, just like any other state, cannot legally secede from the Union. And, just like any other state, is under the rule of federal law at all times, no matter what state laws it may enact. Federal Law always trumps state law. Always.

Just couldn't let this BS regarding my home state pass without comment.

He does need help to do so.

Your link by the way has nothing to do with Texas's Constitutional right to secede.

Actually, you first requested the link from me. Please try to keep up. My link has everything to do with the fact that Texas, just like any other state, has no constitutional right to secede. The specifics to Texas you must've overlooked from the first link I posted. Here it is again for you:

Is this really the best you've got?

Your two references:

http://law2.umkc.edu/faculty/projects/ftrials/conlaw/statesrights.html

Note that Amendment X specifically allows for any State to secede if that State’s residents choose to do so.

http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/history/2012/11/texas_seces sion_how_the_lone_star_state_could_mess_with_the_rest_of_us.html

This is a Slate.com opinion piece. Slate.com is a far-left website that publishes articles specifically written to attack.

I suggest you read the actual Constitution, a document few liberals have ever read and many, like obama, treat as only a list of suggestions:

http://www.usconstitution.net/const.pdf

BTW – The U.S. State Department is shutting down all U.S. Embassy operations in Saudi Arabia due to terrorist threats.

Maybe obama doesn’t want another dead U.S. Ambassador on his list of foreign policy failures.
