(CNN) – Actor Chuck Norris has his eyes on the presidency, but not the White House. Norris wrote that he would be interested in becoming the president of Texas, if the state were ever to secede from the Union.
“I may run for president of Texas,” Norris wrote Monday in a column posted at WorldNetDaily. “That need may be a reality sooner than we think. If not me, someone someday may again be running for president of the Lone Star state, if the state of the union continues to turn into the enemy of the state.”
The actor claimed “thousands of cell groups will be united around the country in solidarity over the concerns for our nation” and said that if states decide to secede from the union, that Texas would lead the way.
“Anyone who has been around Texas for any length of time knows exactly what we'd do if the going got rough in America,” Norris wrote.
“Let there be no doubt about that.” Norris was a strong supporter of Mike Huckabee’s presidential bid, and he helped to draw attention to the former Arkansas governor’s campaign.
I think dats really funny! Do us all a favor and secede! And keep Bush wit u!
What a wonderful thought....and, take Bush with you!
You people do not know your history. The federal government was always meant to be secondary to state governments. The sooner the breakup of the 'USA', the better.
I'd be honored to become a citizen of the Republic of Texas.
Texas is a good place with more than just conservatives in it. It has all kinds of people from left to right.Texas does need help on the border especially now with all the violence though. People need to stop watching all the doom and gloom on t.v. and get back to talking with their neighbors. Maybe then Chuck will calm down. This is what America is all about....trying out different ideas. Done be mad a lefty is in office. It will swing back one day. If your idea works then it might stick around, but if it doesnt people will want something else. Calm down.
One too many drop kicks to the head?
Chuck Norris obviously doesn't love America, just like Sarah Palin. Thank God I live in one of the pro-America parts of the country!
Chuck Norris obviously doesn't read history books... he stares them down until he gets the information he wants.
DON'T MESS WITH TEXAS!!!*
*it's not nice to screw with the mentally handicapped
I new conservatives were mad.....but this! Remember we are Americans and we are suppost to respect other ideas. Everyones Ideas will take a turn in the long run. So if your really does work....then relax.
The quickest way to a man's heart is with Chuck Norris' fist.
Chuck would make a fine president.
he should be sent to jail right away....
If neccessary I will defend the Flag of the United States of America and our legally elected government against all enemies BOTH FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC !
Chuck Norris is now starring as Jefferson Davis in his own mental movie...wotta maroon!
If that mean he takes Bush with him, then it's a deal! Hey, if they want to go, then fine with me!
you know what, let him secede. we'll see how well a country can support itself when its the size of texas, and its only two borders are a country it just left and mexico- with a drug cartel government. im sure mr. norris has the political know-how to handle that situation.
Davy Crockett is turning over in his grave!
