I am a Texan by birth, Okie by relation, and Gypsy by nature. I have been all over this great nation and seen some very pretty country. I've been to the mountains, the dessert, and the wide open plains. I've seen crowded cities and little dieing hometowns. And my favorite place of all is the Red River Valley between Oklahoma and Texas.
We hear alot of discontentment now days. Discontentment with our politicians and big government. We hear all about the bursted bubbles that were so colorful and pretty while they lasted. We hear about our nation on the verge of bankruptcy. About people being scared of the future. Big banks taking over the world. So I say.... let's go to the Red River Valley, and both sides, Texas and Oklahoma, just go ahead and secede.
We will form a new, tiny nation, with the laws of God and nature our laws of the land. Our National Animal will be the Dung Beetle! That's right! And if anyone wants to come to our new "Nation in the Valley" and change what we're doing... well... we will just roll them up in a ball of pooh, and send them back the way they came! No matter who sent them, or how much money they control. How's that?
We will have no national currency. It will all be the barter system. And anyone caught with disposable plastic will have to serve as a trash collector for no less than 6 weeks. That's right! We will keep our nation clean and green!
Our schools will teach children to read, write, and do arithmetic. Teaching morals, attitude, and other aspects of the human conscience will be taught at home. (Where it should have been left in the first place!) And no little kindergarten aged children will be marched in lines with their hands behind their backs! Because we want free thinkers in our little nation. Not robots, docile and unquestioning!
Below is a "must see" video!
We will welcome those who are willing to impliment the Golden Rule until it becomes second nature to them. And those who are unable to live and let live, well... there's always that ball of pooh waiting to send them "home" in style!
Our National Holiday celebrations will center on potlucks and cook outs instead of materialistic bottomless pits! And there will be no need to decorate! The valley is plenty beautiful enough!
Yes... the beautiful Red River Valley where men are men and women aren't scared. Where we will not need a National Anthem, because the crickets and mockingbirds will sing it for us! Where a stranger on the horizon is just a new friend to meet.
If only it could happen...
