Comment of the Day: Honest Government is Impossible; Let's Go Solo

Last week on The Daily Weekly Dan Person noted that as secession talk has heated up in Texas (and throughout the country) in the wake of Barack Obama's reelection, many have come to realize that losing Texas from the equation might not be that bad of thing. Or, at the very least, it would have its benefits.

As the post notes:

But as the days have gone on, it's occurred to many Americans that Texas secession wouldn't actually be a bad thing. While the nation's land mass would drop considerable, our ass mass would also drop a few pounds, per capita.

To boot, it would keep George W. Bush's daughters from running for president. I don't know about you, but thoughts of President Jenna carrying on the dynasty haunts me day and night.

And you know those mouth breathers who want to re-write history books to show that Sam Houston shit gold or whatever? There'd be fence between us and them. A big one. With white-supremacist renegades ready to hunt them down if they jumped it.

The post inspired a number of Facebook "Likes" and some feedback in The Daily Weekly comment section, including thoughts from commenter billwald.

It is not possible to have an honest government in a country of 300 million people. I propose rescinding the Constitution and proceeding as 50 sovereign nations under a North American Treaty Organization for mutual defense.

Puerto Rico should be as rich as Hawaii, a tourist mecca. Imagine - casinos that do not pay US income tax. They have a defective social contract.
