(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 new GOP slogan....if you don't vote for us, we'll secede and start our own country. Sounds vaguely familiar in a way.
I'm.... I'm..... just.... speechless.....
Ask President Obama his thoughts as he taught Constitutional law at the University of Chicago Law School from 1992 to 2004.
So Chuck says that people will know what to do when "the going got rough." And what is that – QUIT? Now THERE'S a fine example of a real leader. Actually, Texas would be one less state the country's taxpayers would have to support...not such a bad idea!
A little man with a big Napoleon complex. If he wants to desert America, get out and take Rush
If he wants to desert America, get out and take Rush with you.
The man is paranoid...and a bit wacko...
So if Texas ever leaves the Union we will probably have to kick the Dallas Cowboys out of the NFL.
I've thought for a long time that the country would be better off without Texas. Go Chuck, go Texas, right wing jerks. But I'll still like some of your music.
This is bordering on treason. Does the South remember what happens to traitors?
Chuck Norris and Texas do not secede from the Union. The Union secedes from Texas. Don't mess with Chuck.
What a terrible person Chuck is. He wouldn't even pay child support while pulling in millions of dollars. He'd be great as the President of Texas. Any civilized state...he wouldn't even make it as the neighborhood watch (unless you want all your money to go missing).
Maybe Chuck can be the President of Texas and Palin can be his Vice President and Chaney can be his secretary of de Fence. De fence between Texas and Mexico.
I laugh greatly at all the comments by the "libs" on this subject.
Not a one of you could carry Chuck's briefcase yet you lambast him.
The direction your new "hip-hop" President is taking is directly towards MARXISM and you have consumed so much of his "intoxicating rhetoric" you don't even know it. YOU truly are the sads one....not Mr. Norris!
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA, this can't be real...Yeah okay Chuck, go ahead . Watch texas get swallowed up by Mexico under a week.
Chuck Norris is headed in the right direction. I'll be moving to the Nation of Texas when it becomes its own country!
Texan men are real men and their women are proud of it. God, guts, guns and honor put the USA on the map and it is now going socialist under Obama.
Mexico will take Texas back before Norris would ever become president and you can take that to the bank, not unless Norris has a deal with Mexico.
If the Alamo had a back door, Texas never would have been a state anyway.
Mad as a fish in a hedge
I nominate Rush, the junkie, Limbaugh as vice president. Republicans are like spoiled kids that didn't get their way. I hope Texas goes it's own way. I really want to see their economy in 2 years, a couple of rich white guys and millions of serfs.
He is a idiot. Why don't he go and try to fix Mexico.
After 8 years of being accused of being unpatriotic for suggesting that invading countries that never attacked us is wrong, it's time to turn the other cheek. Chuck isn't being unpatriotic; he's just being an idiot. Let it slide.
