END THE MILITARY OCCUPATION OF TEXAS

This is a piece of political satire I wrote and submitted to a Facebook sight. †I was amazed at how many people took it literally. †I kid you not, the head of the Texas Militia contacted me, and commented that 'though I was right', to please not repost as so Military Bases in Texas contribute to the economy, that my views could have a negative affect on the secession movement. It was also the subject of a late night conservative talk show out of Dallas. To be honest, the attention scares me a little!

END THE MILITARY OCCUPATION OF TEXAS

(An open letter to the President of the United States, Barack Obama)

Considering your recent condemnation of Putinís invasion of the Crimean, Barack Obama, you should practice what you preach. Itís time for you, Mr. President, to end the United States Military occupation of Texas.

With more than 38 military bases, the State of Texas is home to more American service men and women than most other states combined. And their presence is not appreciated in a íLone Star Stateí where even the governor, Rick Perry, decries the presence of the Federal Government as tyrannical and an obstacle to Texansí happiness and success. And like many Texans, Rick Perry is an advocate of Texas seceding from the Union. No doubt more Texas would join the voice of independence if it werenít for the intimidating presence of armed American troops.

Granted, there are arguments to be made that Texas should not be liberated. Those arguments site Texanís ungracious arrogant attitudes towards the rest of the county. But who are we, as the United States of America, to argue that Texas doesnít have the right to self-determination, when we advocate such a policy around the globe.

So I call upon you, President Barrack Obama, as Commander and Chief, to begin to close and relocate those 38 U.S. military bases so Texans can decide the future course of their State without a bunch of armed soldiers camped in their backyard. In addition, Mr. President, I ask that you close and relocate all NASA personnel, including the Lyndon Johnson Space Center. As you are aware, many Texans, along with other Americans, are concerned that these NASA sites serve nothing more than bases for intelligence gathering on its citizens. Something America has never had the right to do in the first place.

President Barrack Obama, donít be a hypocrite, if Russian troops should withdraw from the Ukraine, then certainly American troops should withdraw from Texas.
