Just a year ago when hurricane Ike hit Texas, who did they turn to? The Federal government through FEMA. Furthermore, Texas has the largest Mexican border and the border patrol is a federal agency, but Texas is so sick of the intrusion from the Federal government, so why do they need our border patrol? Shouldn't they just hire statist Texans to do that job? Why do they need intrusive Federal government to do that?

If they are so sick of "invasion" by the Federal government, then why do they accept help from the Federal government? Shouldn't they refuse the help, let their borders suffer and their people suffer when another Hurricane hits? I think this would send a MUCH stronger message about secession than empty rhetoric from a right-wing governor.
