Gov. Perry may lead Texas out of the UnionSubmitted by meekandmild on Sat, 03/23/2013 - 15:45
One of the more bizarre speculations about what Perry may be plotting comes from Raw Story. Apparently Perry is planning to create a Texas gold depository, much like Fort Knox, that could serve as the basis of currency for an independent Texas republic. Perry did joke about seceding from the Union in 2009 and a We the People petition expressed a certain amount of support for the idea. But Perry himself has never expressed a serious desire to become the president of an independent Republic of Texas.
