from an "oppressive" Federal government, Governor Rick Perry stands before an angry crowd at Austin City Hall and announces that Texas may once again secede from the Union. "There's a lot of different scenarios
," Perry said. "We've got a great union. 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. But Texas is a very unique place, and we're a pretty independent lot to boot."
The spectre of secession has graced Texas before
, of course. Except the last governor to deal with the possibility of secession and civil war was against the whole idea
. Could the previously fringe
idea of Texas secession once again be gaining momentum?
