(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.
So, Chuck Norris is ready to desert America, "if the going gets tough," to cecede – rather than work hard to help America recover. That's a lot of patriotism!
So let me get this straight:
On film, Chuck Norris always kicks butt when the going gets tough, but in the real world, when things or tough for America, he'd rather turn tail and run? Jefferson Davis was a traitor to America; so too may be Chuck Norris.
Well, I moving to Kansas to be part of the DeFranco Nation when that happens.
Now if he could only physically remove Texas from its present location and squeeze together New Mexico and Louisiana. It'd take less than half the time to drive from Las Vegas to New Orleans as it does now.
Hey, the two ideas are about equally sensible. At least mine isn't seditious.
Will someone please get Chuck a movie gig....Clearly he doesn't have nothing else to do but talk ignorance!
Just to be clear, Norris is calling for people to engage in "domestic terrorism," right?
Under the "patriot act" can't he be put to death?
Isn't Chuck Norris supposed to roundhouse you to the face or strangle you with his death stare according to all of those jokes floating around? Hmmm...apparently he just cries like a sissy, grabs all of his toys and wants to go home when he's angry. Hey Chuck, could you leave and take Ted Nugent with you?
Anytime I hear a liberal or conservative say they're going to move out of the country or something like this I am disgusted. If you don't like what's going on in your country fix it, don't leave.
Lunatic! Pure and simple!
So, no more presidents from Texas? It's like a dream come true!
Maybe Chuck should just leave by himself. That way we'd be rid of him and all his exercise equipment commercials. The only people that even like him are the teenagers with their stupid Chuck Norris sayings.
Domestic terrorist, Chuck Norris leads terrorist cells in revolt against United States of America, but finds the resolve of the U.S.A to be to great to over come!!
Lets be real people, I suppose chuck and his friends are going to find everyone in Texas that voted for Obama, and kick them out of there homes, schools, and jobs. Get Real Chuck!!
They can leave now for all I care if they take the Bushs and the 7 trillion dollars of debt they got this country into by their stupid policies and spending.
Really?! Oh, I have heard some real crazy mess in my time, but this...Well, he's just an idiot....
People laught at him. May be some day it will happen. why to stay with the Union that has only one president? Long live Republic of Texas.
I support this idea. go ahead.
What are these people fearful of...my God is not a God of FEAR.
Texas is NOT the South. I don't know exactly what it is, but it's definitely NOT the South.
Chuck may have taken one too many kick to the head, but if a liberal celebrity said anything remotely similar the press would be calling for his arrest for treason.
don't let the screen door hit ya!
Chuck's just bitter because he can't get over getting his butt kicked by Bruce Lee. Go ahead, succeed.
I'm not sure my last comment will get posted since it was rather long. So I'll keep this one short.
SOUNDS GOOD TO ME!
After reading some of these insulting postings, well, the sooner the better!
Treason! His head on a platter! on second thoughts, i think he is writting a screenplay
Please Chuck, take Texas away from us all and, stop trying to fool everybody with that crappy hairpiece you've got. Its awful.
chuck its time you went to the actor's retirement home and take todd palin with you. you are a traitor!!!!!!!!!!!!!
