(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'm not sure what's more ridiculous, the idea that Texas would be better off as an independent nation, or the idea that Norris should be it's first President. I say good riddance!
Yes, because the U.S. would do so much better without Texas. With the fact they provide more soldiers than any other state, as well as GDP. Because America does not need money or soldiers right now.
wow... did anyone think to get a comment from Huckabee on his supporter's idea of seceding from the union?
I'm from Texas originally, though frankly, Houston is the armpit of the universe. Mexico can have it back.
He is a traitor, he needs to be arrested for sedition.
Just take a look at that photo! It says it all! – That's a Conservative folks!
Chuck Norris will roundhouse kick Texas out of the Union.
Um, yeah, that didn't work out so well the first time around did it? Any one who stayed awake in sixth grade history would know that. But then again Texas IS the national leader in the production of mentally retarded politicians so this is not a shocker. Let's not forget that this is the same idiot who supported a guy who thinks that the earth is 6000 years old despite mountains of evidence to the contrary.
So he wants to cut and run?
Chuck! What in God's name has gotten in to you? Please Chuck...please you do not represent nearly what Texans are all about...your days are over and what you need to do is get your head checked...Bruce Lee might have really done a job on you! Stop listening to Mark Levin..another nut job.
Sounds like the script to a new movie starring Chuck Norris.
Before everyone freaks out too much I suggest you click on the link provided in the story and read the article
I guess when the going gets tough for America these "patriots" cut and run. Chuck Norris and the rest of these yahoos are pathetic.
As a long time Texas resident who loves this state, I'd like to note that Chuck "The Quitter" Norris does not speak for me.
It would be one of the best things that could happen. Texas has only one thing wrong with it, it's full of Texans.
Hi Mike, this is Chuck. Chuck Norris. What do you mean you never
heard of me!
IQ perhaps 79. Moron, definitely moron. Texas won't lead the way in anything.
How Un-American of him.
Would this mean that Texas football teams wouldn't play American teams?
Look what happened to the Soviet Union. That day will happen here if Obama keeps on pushing his stimulus bills one after the other, till the government take over.
Every state in our Union joined at their leisure and every state can exit at their leisure. Would someone read the Constitution and show me otherwise. It is not mentioned, therefore......guess what.....it a states issue.
What a NUT JOB! Sounds like he and Todd Palin have been collaborating.
Roundhouse kick Chuck Norris out of the United States,
And I used to have so much respect for Chuck Norris. Too Bad!!
That would REALLY make the stock market plunge...or skyrocket
