Thursday was the shock that was heard around the world. Contrary to all expectations, Britons voted to leave the European Union. That massive socialist experiment has proved to be a total disaster. Britain was the first but it won’t be the last. Discussions of exit votes are now bouncing around European capitals faster than Bill Clinton changes girlfriends.
The day after the Brexit vote, conservatives began displaying British independence memes on social media. What also followed were “Texit” memes. Those memes said that it was time for Texas to have a similar vote.
Could Texas have a similar vote? Could other states have a similar vote? Should this happen and what would it mean for the future of America?
Should Texas hold that vote? Absolutely. Should other states, particularly the red states hold similar votes? Absolutely. Could this mean the end of the United States of America?
Yes, it could.
Those ideas are shocking to those of us of a certain generation who grew up reciting the Pledge of Allegiance every day in school. The phrase from the pledge we all remember is, “One nation, under God, indivisible.”
The days of America being indivisible are long since gone. The far left has taken parts of America and made it look more like a cross between a banana republic and the old Soviet Union.
In Washington, Democrats hold a sit in, in the House of Representatives, not for more rights but to take away the rights of millions. Indeed most of the leftist agenda is about stripping the rights away from people. Liberals believe in free speech for them. If you are a conservative, they want you silenced under the guise of “hate speech.” Name a right granted to us by God and I’ll show you a right the left wants to take away and give that aspect of our lives over to the government.
In Red America, we want to be free. We want to have our First Amendment rights. We want to have our Second Amendment rights. Even the Seventh Amendment gets popular once we start talking about it in Red America.
Contrast that with Blue America. On college campuses, conservatives are regularly shouted down. Conservative groups have their events disrupted. In Stalinist Chicago, guns are forbidden so criminals have guns and real Americans don’t. The bloodbath is predictable. The left wants to give the government complete control of our healthcare. This includes the decision on whether to give someone lifesaving treatment or just deciding the no longer have enough value to society.
The truth is, America is now a very divisible nation. There is an old joke in conservative circles about letting New York and California go off on their own and sink in the socialist mess they have created.
Why the hell not?
Let them go?
Let real Americans go.
It is time for the Texit vote. Let Texas decide if it really wants to stay in a nation where bureaucrats in Washington dictate all aspects of our lives. If freedom really prevails in this nation, Texas would vote to stay. But if America is sliding down the road to serfdom, then let Texas strike the first blow for freedom and liberty.
