By now most everyone has heard of Texas governor Rick Perry's hints of secession at the Austin 'tea party.'
Everyone from The New York Times to Kurt Nimmo to Mike Adams has chimed in on the controversy.
Not to say that secession will not be a viable option at some point in the future but it won't be led by neocon fake individual and state sovereignty shills such as Perry.
I have a suggestion Mr. Perry.
Get your attorney general to issue an indictment and then deputize your good buddy Chuck Norris and have him lead the Texas Rangers to arrest G.W. Bush for war crimes and crimes against humanity. That would give you credibility and make for a terrific media event.
Perhaps Perry's independent Texas would become a partner of Israel. He would need allies for his new 'country' and as a 'Friend of Zion,' the partnerships are already in place.
In June 2007, Perry traveled to Israel courtesy of Global Capital Associates. While in Israel he received the "Friend of Zion" award, and met with Ehud Olmert and Benjamin Netanyahu. Source Watch

“I want Texas to become the preferred location for Israeli companies doing business in the U.S. Like Texas, Israel has a long history of growing new technology companies through partnerships that include universities, government and private investors and entrepreneurs. Strengthening relationships between these two 'Lone Star States' will benefit our respective economies and increase understanding."
Texas Governor Rick Perry, September 25, 2007:
“Texas and Israel share a lot in common, so a close working relationship between businesses in Texas and businesses in Israel will enhance friendship between the nation of Israel and the great nation of the United States. I look forward to this relationship leading to increased commerce between Israel and Texas and I thank you, Terry, for your tireless efforts that led to the success of this business-to-business association as the Texas Israel Chamber Association brought together the Governor’s office, your Chamber’s members, Israel’s businesses and Israel’s Ministry of Industry and Trade”.
