Recently in this blog, I reported on the judge and sheriff in Lubbock County, Texas, who committed themselves to defending their square-shaped scrap of desert from the jackbooted United Nations in case Barack Obama is reelected. On that occasion, I opined that the jury was still out on whether there’s something in Texas’s air or soil that makes people stupid, or whether stupid people just tend to move to Texas. Well, we’re no closer to answering that question, but here is further evidence to consider.

Meanwhile, Daniel Miller, president of the Texas Nationalist Movement (T.N.M.), which supports secession from the United States, said that his organization “condemns the outright contempt of the sovereignty of Texas by the Obama regime, its partisan support groups, and international N.G.O.s. These three have conspired to attack the foundation of our republican form of government which is rightly guaranteed to Texans in the Texas Constitution under Article 1, Section 2.” The T.N.M. will be sending its own observers to polling stations, Miller stated, promising citizens’ arrests if O.S.C.E. observers try anything funny.

And don’t even get me started on those jack-booted thugs from Unesco. You jes’ try ’n’ declare the Alamo any kinda commie/socialist/hippie “world heritage site” ’n’ we’ll rip you two new assholes. Darn tootin’.
[Also, for those who are wondering, yes, this blog is tied in with a forthcoming book, a sort of encyclopedic atlas to be published by Auslander and Fox under the title Let’s Split! A Complete Guide to Separatist Movements, Independence Struggles, Breakaway Republics, Rebel Provinces, Pseudostates, Puppet States, Tribal Fiefdoms, Micronations, and Do-It-Yourself Countries, from Chiapas to Chechnya and Tibet to Texas. Look for it in spring 2013. I will be keeping readers posted of further publication news.]
