Texas was a Republic before it was a part of the USA.

Yeah... but it's not a Republic anymore that I know of. That Republic of Texas website ( http://www.republic-of-texas.net/ ) isn't all true, either. Like the state flag thing, for instance... and seceding from the Union clause. Not true.

I just read this on Wikipedia:

Everyone knows "Sam Houston" (at least in Texas)... but who the hell is Mirabeau B. Lamar?!? He was the one that was gung-ho for Texas being a Republic... So, as history would have it, we remember the guy who was for Texas being part of the U.S.

I was born & raised in Texas. Lived here most of my life (with a 4-year term in Oklahoma). But, I don't think Texas is "The BEST" or anything like that. I mean, sure, I'm very fond of my state. But, other states have their own aspects for which to be proud. In that quote above, we see that the leader of the nationalists faction (those "Republic of Texans&quot, also were for removing the Native Americans from Texas. That really pisses me off, and is definitely not something to be proud of.

I would love the ability to fly. I dream about it VERY often and I hate when I wake up.



(without the wings, of course)
