No particular reason for posting this other than to show OT as lying again. :lol:
The myth that just won't go away...
Here is a transcript of the actual conversation with Kelley Shannon, Austin correspondent for the Associated Press. Shannon initially asked if Perry thought the Tea Party gathering they were at reflected a national movement. Perry answered that it could be and that people feel strangled by spending and taxation; they want help. Shannon then asked Perry about some associating him with the idea of secession or sovereignty for Texas:
"Oh, I think there’s a lot of different scenarios," Perry said. "Texas is a unique place. When we came in the union in 1845, one of the issues was that we would be able to leave if we decided to do that."
"You know, my hope is that America and Washington in particular pays attention. We’ve got a great union. There is absolutely no reason to dissolve it. But if Washington continues to thumb their nose at the American people, you know, who knows what may come out of that? So. But Texas is a very unique place and we’re a pretty independent lot to boot."
And Perry wants to secede from the union...
