(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.
There is no theory of evolution. Just a list of creatures Chuck Norris has allowed to live
His he NUTS? Texas gets way too much money from the fed gov to ever cut off its nose..go back to Hollywood you psycho.
Most everyone loves Chuck, including me, but this is preposterous. Texans are proud, but not always smart. Many of them are certainly hardheaded enough to try. I know many Aggies would fight for Texas–they certainly seem to put patriotism for Texas over that for the U.S. But how could they ever leave? Who would they have to play football against? It would be UT vs. A&M or Baylor for every game...boring! And who would take Mission Control? Like the U.S. would ever let that go. Let's get real.
Chuck better be careful. Talk of sleeper cells rings of home-grown terrorism.
If Texas ever did leave, though, I have to say, good riddance! Just make sure I'm gone before it happens!
If he was a liberal, he'd be crucified by now by the conservatives. When liberals scream they're moving to Canada the Right is all over them. At least they aren't trying to take part of the country with them. What a maroon. His acting career is in the tank (where is has always belonged) so I guess he's after the publiciity.
Chuck Norris does not sleep. He waits.
I am a born and raised Texan. I love Texas. Even with its challenges it is a great state. That being said, Chuck Norris is a dope.
Lets add one to those Chuck Norris sites:
When Chuck Norris speaks, stupid people collectively get smarter by default.
God bless Texas and the USA.
Wow. Just lost some respect for Chuck.
The GOP is out of its mind. Palin, Limbaugh, Steele, Norris, what else do they have in store? Maybe we could just give them the moon and let them set up their own little dysfunctional empire up there. Thank God Obama and the rest of the adults are in charge now.
Cells? Ummmmm...nobody with a brain in their head may watch this Bin Laden wannabe, but I sure hope he enjoys the surveillance.
It never gets old living in America. I have no words for how stupid people are. Hey, I hope we at least are going to have a trade agreement with Texas.
Oh my gosh, I needed this laugh today! Chuck seems to be one of those people who overestimate their clout, influence, and intelligence as well. What a fool!!!
Man . . .too bad Bruce Lee didn't take this guy out for real in Enter The Dragon . . .
This man is crazy!!! Thanks for the little bit of humor, Chuck. But watch out-too many comments that sound "un-American" and the Republicans may turn on you!
But imagine: The country of Texas would have the cure for cancer.
if only it were that easy...
It is not sedition to suggest Texas could leave the Union. Texas is a republic and is allowed in its constitution the right to secede. The US should be united voluntarily not hrough coersion.
I try to avoid stereotypes, but Texas gave us George Bush. Bye bye.
I think this guy has taken too may karate chops to the head!
I need a good laugh and now I have gotten it
Chuck doesnt realize that the war movies hes done arent real. Rambo isnt real. Red Dawn isnt real! and never will be. Stop day dreaming GOP!!! Stop wasting your money on guns!
The GOP just keeps getting loonier by the day. Chuck and Rush... what a insane ticket that would be. Can we ship all the GOP crazies to Texas??
That means long distance calls to my home state would become "international" calls. Thanks a lot, Chuck....
Just leave AUSTIN alone and let it be an autonomous collective. It's way too hip and trendy for your proposed "nation".
Maybe it can be a sovereign city-state .... like the Vatican but with no religion :)
Chuck is a FRAUD and a ego junkie! What a total flake. YOU LOST CHUCK GET OVER IT
Uh, Chuck? Do you realize that it was a guy FROM Texas who made things rough in America?
The new motto for the United State of Texas is "When the going gets tough, the Texans run away."
People everywhere should understand that if America was to break up and had individual states go their own way then where would that leave us? I tell you where we would be invaded from foreign countries. It is time for people to come together for the common good of man. We have the most flourished nation in the world yet we are destroying her because of petty indifferences and basic greed! Will we ever again join together as one? God, I only hope!
