Chuck Norris - my hero of the week

You know, I've never been a fan of Chuck Norris. I don't like his movies, I don't like his TV show, and the endless jokes in World of Warcraft just annoyed the crap out of me. But after reading this story, Chuck Norris is now my personal hero for the week.

Chuck Norris for president … of Texas

From CNN's Lauren Kornreich

If the State of Texas ever left the Union, Chuck Norris is interested in being president of the newly independent country.
(CNN) – Actor Chuck Norris has his eyes on the presidency, but not the White House. Norris wrote that he would be interested in becoming the president of Texas, if the state were ever to secede from the Union.

“I may run for president of Texas,” Norris wrote Monday in a column posted at WorldNetDaily. “That need may be a reality sooner than we think. If not me, someone someday may again be running for president of the Lone Star state, if the state of the union continues to turn into the enemy of the state.”

The actor claimed “thousands of cell groups will be united around the country in solidarity over the concerns for our nation” and said that if states decide to secede from the union, that Texas would lead the way.

“Anyone who has been around Texas for any length of time knows exactly what we'd do if the going got rough in America,” Norris wrote.

“Let there be no doubt about that.” Norris was a strong supporter of Mike Huckabee’s presidential bid, and he helped to draw attention to the former Arkansas governor’s campaign.

Chuck has the balls to state publically what many people are privately thinking: This is not the country that is described in the Constitution. Something is dead wrong here, and something radical needs to happen to fix it.

People tend to forget that this country is the United States of America. They, and the government, forget that the country is supposed to be run for the benefit of the States and their respective populations. They get so caught up in "rah rah, go USA!" that they lose sight of what USA stands for. God forbid you speak out for your rights, then you are labled a terrorist or a traitor. Don't forget people, great patriots like Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, and Benjamin Franklin were labled traitors for their actions in forming this country. Think about it.
