My problem with your logic is that the state of Texas has done more to widdle away your rights than has this present administration. Texas has always been more than happy to bow to the demands of the federal government when it comes to receiving federal dollars. Texas is picking the pockets of it's citizens in order that you have the right to drive. Your roads down their don't even belong to you any longer.
Independent Texans are universally opposed to Gov. Rick Perry's plans to put the massive 4,000 mile, 1,200 foot wide toll road network and utility corridor through the heart of Texas . . .
[Perry has also vetoed] eminent domain reform designed to protect private property rights and to stop the taking of over 1 million acres of prime farm and ranchland -- for the Trans-Texas Corridor -- the largest land seizure in United States history.

I'm going to go with your #2 choice. Bush put the foundation down that would allow Texas to grow in the direction of a police state that uses it's citizenry as commodities.
All the hoopla about illegals and Obamas policy is a joke. Texans love their cheap often times slave labor.
The prison system down there should tell you where that state is headed....fascist all the way while waving their beloved Texas flag over it all.
The American Correctional Association is the largest corrections association in the world. Founded in 1870, as the National Prison Association, this organization of prison professionals had a prison-reform orientation. More recently, the organization evolved into -- in practice if probably not by design -- a faciliator of prison expansion.
well i guess the feds need to build the border fence all around TX to avoid the illegal texans from entering the US.
oh and good luck with the drug cartels
see how fun it's going to be to fight the next big hurricane/tornado hitting TX - without the help of the feds
global warming/climate change is just a myth. yep Katrina & Rita were invented by evil Al gore & those liberals to frighten the rest of the US into accepting the carbon tax/cap & trade!
New Orleans is still there, it's just the mainstream media lying to us that it's been destroyed.
TX, we probably won't miss you
Texas has been trying to decentralize the power away from D.C. to the South. They have always been sore for losing the civil war and don't believe in equality in any sense of the word.
The southern babtist convention then christian coalition are the driving forces behind the movement.
Texas would also like to keep the revenue from oil reserves and not have to share with the country proceeds taken in from American soil.
I think we should let the southern confederacy cede from the Union then give them no protection when Mexico comes knocking on their door.
In matter of fact I belief there would be decendents of slaves and exploited minorities in the south that would assist in destabilizing a confederate south.
It would be the bigots against the world.
