(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.
The funny things is the Democrats are the ones who are always portrayed as unpatriotic. The media is a joke.
1. You were a horrible actor.
2. You would make a horrible "president"
3. Things here in Texas are not as bad as the rest of the country.
How about going to Michigan.
Oh, good. Let them go. It's funny how Republicans hate actors having any political opinions, unless that actor is Ronald Reagan,
Charleston Heston, etc. What has Texas ever done for us other than
making us live through 12 years of both Bushes. Enough already!
I've lived 45 years (all my life) in Texas - I am here to tell you GW Bush and Chuck Norris don't speak for the most of us. What a nut!
I'm there! I think I'll immigrate to Texas ASAP!
I hope Kansas would follow suit. Liberal Democrats on the coasts telling us how to run our lives here in the Midwest is atrocious. God bless you Chuck!
A bit seditious, eh Mr. Norris?
The biggest "terrorist" treat to America is the right wing fringe.
Chuck Norris once killed two stones with one bird. Vote for Chuck!
get lost, chuck
There was already a Civil War...and the South lost! Get a life, Chuck.
Most of America feels that Pres. Obama is doing a good job. If Huckabee was that great, wouldn't he be President now??
Judging from his time frame, we could be looking at the plotline for "24" next season!
No more Chuch Norris films for me.
Wow, this guy is too much. LOL
Chuck Norris for President...that's as silly as it sounds. Sounds like more right wing knee jerk reactionary blather to me. Hey Chuck, don't stop half way, cut two holes in your pillowcase and come on out of the closet....
Loser. Just can't fact fact Obama, That One, is the President of the United States of America. Hey Chuck... Texas Rangers was a TV show not real.
He's no Patriot. Invoke the Patriot Act, you know the one Bush had were anyone who spoke against the governement could be detailed for any amount of time. yes, Chuck kept those moves sharp Federal Prisons are no joke
In case you forgot we aren't a Communist country yet. Citizens can freely decide if they want their state to secede from the union. That is the beauty of living in a free society.
Sure, why not? That's exactly what GOD wants, ain't i right Chuck???
wow, all i can say is WHAT THE (EXPLETIVE)??!!
Oh, for God's sake! Why doesn't Norris just head on up to Alaska and join Sarah and husband! I never realized their were so many nut cases in high places! It is purely disgusting... .is it any wonder that Rush Limbaugh is speaking for the GOP? I'm appalled!
I was taught in school that all the states are not allowed to secede from the union except one. Texas.
Great idea, Chuck....and take Bush and the rest of the Repukes with you! Good riddance!
I think Chuck has seceded from reality.
I hear there's only stears and queers in texas.And i dont see any horns on Chucks head.
