To be fair, he's not old enough to vote yet, so it doesn't matter.

Please point out where I said Texas needs to secede. I think you need to secede from this forum for spreading lies about me.

Moderators?

Per capita GDP is meaningless.

Texas has the largest, fastest growing economy with the lowest unemployment rate in America, period.

State Unemployment Rates | May 2014
Incorrect. Neither of the sources that you provided match your claims. As you will see in the unemployment rate chart, there are several states that have a lower unemployment rate than Texas. North Dakota, FYI, has the lowest unemployment rate in the US.

Furthermore, the 2012 national average per capita GDP is $42,693. According to the Bureau of Business & Economic Research, Texas falls a little bit below that at $41,471. For a state that apparently has such a fantastic economy, that's not much to boast about.

And while thats not true, I suppose you can say it is and hope people believe it. Texas has never really had the border covered. And if you want to talk about presidents sending troops into battle to get killed, lets talk about Bush.

Perhaps you missed the post where I pointed out that .004% of the state signed the petition to secede. Im assuming you just wanted to ignore that fact.
