Sometimes, actors say the stupidest things

As you can tell by this CNN article, stupidity apparently isn't limited to the Hollywood loonies on the left, but the ones on the right as well.

[Chuck] 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.”

There would be no doubt at all. Texas would get their ass handed to them, just like the South did after the Civil War. You know, back long before the Federal government (and U.S. military) was as powerful and authoritarian as it is today?

That secession plan didn't work out so hot for the South last time, but perhaps Chuck Norris is just nostalgic for the reconstruction / carpet bagging era…
