(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.
CNN what is wrong with your ticker today? None of my comments are getting through. Perhaps this one will.
This almost sounds like a terrorist threat from Chuck "thousands of cell groups ... across the country" – not something I would expect to hear from him. I think we are all concerned about the state of America – let's all try to make it better rather than trying to pick up our toys and stop playing with everyone else.
God help us.
In the USA, we call people like you traitors.
are you a veteran? I suspect NOT
God bless the USA
I was born and raised in Texas and you do not speak for me Chuckster.
Since he thinks that things are so bad, why doesn't he sedede from America and move to the moon. He can be the Lunar President as in LUNATIC.
Patriot Act him...
...he's a domestic terrorist...
O' Lord..i have heard it all now!
OMG! You have got to be kidding.
This wing nut has taken a few too many kicks to the head! I does sound like a good idea though, but please leave us real Americans Austin Tx because of the great music scene there!
Any so called American talking about breaking up the Union with arms involved is a terrorist. Chuck Norris & his armed mobs should be rounded up now and questioned. Get Palin and her husband too. They have that sort of conversation in Alaska as well don't they. Republicans and all their talk of God. It only fits them when they want it to. Now who's paling around with terrorist.
Considering what happened to South Carolina near the end of the Civil War, I'm sure we'd be happy to accomodate Texas' demands.
Him and Palin.I want to be president of Hawaii.I mean King
He needs to run for President and kick some communist %$#@!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
"Thousands of cell groups will be united around the country". I guess by being a right-wing zealot, he would know of them. Aren't those called "sleeper-cells?"
I always suspected the true reasons the right-wingers were stocking up on arms wasn't out of fear of President Obama banning them, and now the truth is coming out.
My gosh. The party that insists the reason for the invasion in Iraq was for "WMDs"...uh, oops...to "overthrow Saddam"...oops again,...uh...to "install democracy" CANNOT HANDLE DEMOCRACY WHEN IT WORKS HERE.
This isn't sedition? I hope the FBI is investigating his claim of "cells" around America uniting to push for secession.
C'mon Chuck...crack open a history book. Secession has been tried and found to be illegal due to the defeat of the Confederacy.
And they talk about looney left wing celebrities!
Does he not remember that many of the problems that this country is facing were caused by a Texan?
PLEASE DO!!!! Only one rule: No emmigrating back.
We need another actor in office like we need a hole in our head. We have Schwarzenegger in California. Diaster. Problem is, you can't just act like you care.
Pleeease! I wish Chuck Norris would secede from these United States, the freaking traitor!
Wow! Really? Chuck Norris? We couldn't do any better? Come on now!
Conservative Translation: "Waah my candidate didn't win, so i quit. I don't want to play anymore and hope we succeed from all of you!"
Hey Chuck.....can you spell "T-r-a-i-t-o-r?
You can leave any time you want!
This man has already proven himself to be a representative of everything backwards, bigoted, and just plain stupid in America. By all means, Chuck; leave, take Texas with you, and let America progress into the future already.
So if the going got rough in America, Texas would run away? And this sounds just a bit treasonous.
