Chuck Norris for president … of Texas

If the State of Texas ever left the Union, Chuck Norris is interested in being president of the newly independent country.
If the State of Texas ever left the Union, Chuck Norris is interested in being president of the newly independent country.

(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.

    Chuck: There is a freedom of speech, and there is seditious acts. This is the later. Leave the country, or please FBI arrest him

    Anyone that even talks about seceding from the Union is no better than any of those men that flew planes into the buildings on 9/11. They are terrorists and traitors, simple as that. Even though it would be nice to be done with all those stupid southerners........

    So what's the plan Chuck? Load up all them good ol' boys in the back of F-150's, with plenty of 12 gauge ammo and cases of Lone Star beer and jerkey and head on up to Idaho to round up more fellas right? First off is get them Messicans back into Messico. Put up a great big 'lectric fence to keep 'em from getting over here. Yeah, you racist/terrorist lunatic. Funny but I never thought of you as a mobile home owner from Idaho. How can I get a refund for my Total Gym?

    It is indeed unfortunate that Mr. Norris, who had the potential to do good, has tipped way over to the side of treason. If he had any amount of intelligence, one might suppose he could actually gain support in his endeavor; however, as it is, he will attract only the fringe lunatics who are ineffectual but lethal.

    Talk about delusions of grandeur. Chuck has been kicking himself in the head again. Time for him to count to infinity and back, twice. Maybe he could get a neuronal stem cell transplant to boost his brain power to at least Bush's level.

    Way to go Chuck. And I would be right there with you along with my family and my entire arsenal of weapons. The government needs to remember....there are more of us than them. The military is filled with patriots who come from much more conservative and libertarian leaning principles who have no qualms about overthrowing an oppressive regime. Hey....a little revolution is a good thing. It is a constitutional thing. And the many millions of gunowners in America will unite if the times demand it.

    What a flaming dweeb.

    Exactly what 'cells' are you referring to, Mr. Norris?

    A gaggle of borderline defectives with guns and more ammunition than brains?

    I can't believe I am responding to this half-baked moron.

    Waiter? Check please ...

    You Libs just don't get it. The so-called silent majority is now beginning to scream with the pain from taking it up the @ss to support you do-nothing freeloaders. I'm with Chuck....Oh, by the way....With an independent Republic of Texas, just think about all the oil wells and the refineries......You can import you oil from right here in continental America....for a price.

    Chuck Norris destroyed the periodic table because he only recognizes the element of suprise.

    Chuck Norris is disgusting...... what a cry baby.... lose the election and now you want to leave the U.S. ? And the crazy notion you have of "cells" around the country? You sound like Osama bin Laden now...Better go hide in cave ... You dont speak for a lot of Texans I know, and people in my family who have given their all for this country would be ashamed of you.

    Chuck's got his Walker Texas Ranger hat on a little too tight!?

    Well Mr. Norris' true colors shine forth. A real patriot would unite behind a president and at least give that person a fighting chance to fix the problems we are in that by the way were created during 8 years of a conservative presidential reign. It amazes how fast the right wants to give up on this country just because they lost the argument.
