Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – It makes no sense to me.  This is another great example of how the propaganda and “to the victor go the spoils” mentality that it has weighed on the heads of Texans for 150 years.  You drive around Houston and you’ll see secede stickers all over the place.  No one is actually talking about doing something about it.  I’d say there are about 16 trillion immediate reasons why you ought to do something about it.  Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Mike:  John is in Arizona next on The Mike Church Show.  Hello, John.

Caller John:  Thank you for everything that you do.  You’ve opened up my mind, my eyes to the Constitution and the founding fathers and pretty much how this country should be run.  I thank you for it and please keep it up.

Mike:  You’re very welcome.

Caller John:  Presently I live here in Arizona, the Phoenix area.  I moved here from the great socialist City of Chicago.  I’m thinking of relocating again, possibly to Texas.  Based on what you know between the two states, Arizona and Texas, where would you relocate or stay?

Mike:  Don’t put me on the spot like that.  I’m going to let Andrew answer that question.  He lived in Texas.

AG:  I love Texas.

Mike:  There you go, Texas it is.

Caller John:  Based on the economy and just politics in general, what I’ve been seeing here in Arizona, mainly the local, small town stuff, it’s not looking too good.  So I’ve been looking at Texas as well as other states.

Mike:  Here’s what I have to say about this.  I want you people to listen very carefully.  I do not understand the utility of the people of Texas remaining in the American union.  They must really like us.  It must have something to do with the Cowboys remaining in the NFL and the Rangers in the MLB.  There cannot possibly be a monetary reason for Texas to remain a member of the American Union, to pretend that it has to abide by laws that are made by citizens of Massachusetts and New York and Pennsylvania and Washington State and California; that it has to pretend as though it cannot police and protect its own border with Mexico; that it has to pretend as though once the Mexicans sneak over the border, as a sovereign state they don’t have the right to kick the Mexicans out or the Guatemalans or Chileans or whoever it is.  Texas remaining in the union is an enigma to me, it really is.

To me, of all the places that have everything that you would want a country to have, the country of Texas has it all.  You can even just secede.  You don’t even have to secede.  Just declare your independence and say you’re not sending any more congressmen or senators and be done with it.  What are we going to do?  Have you seen the landmass of Texas?  Declare your independence and use your constitution to divide your state up into the five already divided provinces.  Then you’ve got your own little Federation of Texas.  Then you’ve really got some republicanism going on.  If you really want to get into it, you might even have Austin become its own enclave, Dallas become its own, a very large one.  It would be one of the largest ones in the world.  Paris County has almost 4 million people in it would be in the top 50 of the largest countries on Earth.

The enigma to me is why does Texas play this game?  As I said, it just has to be laziness, pure apathetic laziness.  [mocking] “Mike, they want to trade with us.”  Like we would stop trading with Texas.  Of course Congress would probably get angry and say: We’re gonna have tariffs and this and that.”  I’d say we’d probably be woe to undergo that.  I’ll answer the question like that.  As long as Texas is filled with people who are inertia-less and who are filled with an apathy as I just described, I’d suggest you should probably stay in Arizona.  I wish someone in Texas would answer that question.  For what reason do you remain?  Rick Perry obviously wants to be the big kahuna.  He obviously wanted to be president.  There are lots of guys in Texas that want to be president.  You could become president of the Republic of Texas, couldn’t you?  You could become president, not just a lousy little governor, president of one of those five provinces I mentioned that are carved out already in the Texas Constitution of 1843.

It makes no sense to me.  This is another great example of how the propaganda and “to the victor go the spoils” mentality that it has weighed on the heads of Texans for 150 years.  You drive around Houston and you’ll see secede stickers all over the place.  No one is actually talking about doing something about it.  I’d say there are about 16 trillion immediate reasons why you ought to do something about it.  There are about 160 to 170 trillion 30-year reasons why you ought to do something about it.  That’s just me thinking about it.  I appreciate the phone call.

Why doesn’t Texas secede? Easy… can you say “Joint Strike Fighter”? It has only blown through $50B in the last 11 years. And that is only the tip of the iceberg. The program is expected to have an eventual value of half a trillion dollars. Yes, even Texas is dependent on sucking the teet of the Federal Government.


Because if Texas does secede they would really have to worry about Mexico and the drug Cartel. Texas would put up a fight but would be a land of war.. JS

I hope Texas does secede! When it does, I will immediately apply for citizenship! Would be happy to become a neighbor of the Church household in the Country of Louisiana, as well. Would probably fit right in with the other bazillion other Lacoste down there.
I completely agree with Mike on this subject! As more time passes, I get the feeling that secession is the only action that can save what our founders began.


That is a rally great question as to WHY? Because they have a little thing in the TEXAS CONSTITUTION Sec. 1. FREEDOM AND SOVEREIGNTY OF STATE. Texas is a free and independent State, subject only to the Constitution of the United States, and the maintenance of our free institutions and the perpetuity of the Union depend upon the preservation of the right of local self-government, unimpaired to all the States. (Ok, so here we see a very Long sentence that says alot of things. Lets break it down a bit.. 1. Texas is a free and independent state. / Pretty much self explanatory, right? Um no, because of the very next part./ SUBJECT TO ONLY the United States Constitution./ What does that mean? To me that means that the Texas Constitution ENDS right there. To go any further than that is nothing more and nothing less than intentional self illusionment about what that part means. It says what it means and it means what it says, Texas is as Independent as they are allowed to be ONLY under the United States Constitution, which leads us onto the next SUBJECT(pun intended) and that subject being the United States Citizen Subject or SUBJECTED CITIZEN. Those that call themselves U.S. Citizens are by Definition Subjects and PROPERTY of the U.S. and for Texas to secede from the Union would be for Texas to leave the Union with a whole bunch of U.S. Property, therefore opening the door to a war and invasion of Texas by the U.S. Forces. Especially those that have no clue what LAWS apply. In my estimates the ONLY way Texas can secede is to first remove that Superiority clause from their constitution and teach ALL TEXANS what they need to know about being a U.S. Subject Citizen and giving them a CHOICE to either stay a U.S. Subject Citizen or drop the U.S. Citizenship and become Texas Nationals, but they will not be able to and cannot be BOTH. Why? well number 1. Taxes, the U.S. IRS cannot Lawfully collect taxes in a foreign country that has no treaty with the U.S. 2. Stealing U.S. PROPERTY (U.S.Subjected Citizens) is against INTERNATIONAL Law. 3. The full blown PHYSICAL continuation of ABRAHAM LINCOLNS war of attrition and aggression against ALL the states by the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT which has never actually ended and was left at all peoples are under Probation per Grant and Lee’s agreement. 4. there is alot more but you go do the rest of the research. I’m not spoon feeding anyone anymore.

The only difference in the relationships between 50 seceded states and the relationships between the states as they are now would be the absence of the iron boot / financial sinkhole of the federal government.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
