  • I'm guessing you're not too versed on Texas history?

  • I knew you meant "swear". :-)
    But I guess for a while they were talking about Texas seceding...LOL> It is the right of states to leave the "union", secede,if they want to. They are big enough to be a country. Whatever. They do seem a bit arrogant. Good luck !

  • What do you mean by "now?" I was in kindergarten in 1980 and we said the US and TX pledge back then. What is wrong with having national AND state pride? In vacation Bible school we say a pledge to the US, TX, and Christian flags. I'm not sure what your issue is. It's far better to have state and national pride than no pride at all.

    And, no, we Texans do not think our state is its own country. That's just silly. We are Texans and Americans.

  • Personally I wish our schools would at least say the Pledge of Alligence. You're lucky in that they say both. Yes Texan's are proud and I wish other States were just as proud. How many of you know your State pledge?

  • Texas, because it was a Republic before joining the Union, has always reserved the right to secede at any time it wants.

  • Texas has been wanting to secede for a long while. We moved from there 10 years ago and before we moved there were people pushing for that and they still are (we went back to visit last year).
