(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.
I want to be president of Clearwater Beach Florida
Ross Perot redux? If you don't play my game I gonna take my ball and go home!
Well, now I am convinced that Mr. Norris is nuts...period.
honestly, i think it would be a good thing if Texas left the USA. Then we could make Puerto Rico a state, and get rid of a whole bunch of in-bred Republicans, not to mention the Bush family

As someone who used to live in Texas (El Paso when I was in the Army) – I say let them go! Good riddance!
Listen up Obama this is why our country was set up with state government and states rights. It was never the intention of our founding fathers to have an all powerfull central government.
Chuck, I'm a 6th generation Texan and I have no intention of seceding from the United States. You need to go somewhere else.
"Don't mess with texas... or we'll leave"
Do it. Do it.
Let 'em go. It's no big loss.
Chuck Norris is a NUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
God help us all.
I always knew this guy was a nutjob. Too many hours doing infomercials.
The way this country is going the average American will not be able to afford to live here,with all the give away programs and new taxes, thanks to the Dems. and King Obama. We all are going to feel this change that was promised to us. God help us all.
this man should be watched closely.........this is the kind of people the republican party draws..........God forbid if the Republcans ever get their hands on the White House again......
Treason. What a great American Chuck is. Whaaa!! I don't like it!!! What a baby.
looks like he's had one too many numb chucks to the head.
Why not? Could he be any worse than George W. Bush?
I think they pulled his face back way too far!
Let em secede...all we gotta do is send another Sam Houston and boom!! We'll take it way faster than when Santa Anna was there, LOL!! Thanks to my old boy Polk himself...is there anything we haven't done as a country? LOL!!
They wanna talk old-school, I'll bring em old-school...and by the way, his workout machine, is good, is pretty good, LOL!!
First he supports that lunatic loser Huckabee, now he's saying he wants to be president of TEXAS???!!! I'm guessing he took too hard of a kick to the head during training.
i hadn't realised that chuck was a comedian...
why not? Could he be any worse than George W. Bush?
Chuck Norris APPROVED!!
