A recent poll from Public Policy Polling shows that 67% of Texas Republicans believe that President Barack Obama should be impeached.
Of course, as of last November 21, 100,000 Texans had also already singed a White House petition to secede from the union, so I don't put a whole lot of stock in what comes out of Texas. Besides, if Texas secedes, I think it's terribly inappropriate for foreigners to tell the United States how to run its government.
But I'm on recording supporting Texas secession. Since they have no treasury to print money, and no standing Army, the U.S. could watch the state collapse, then declare war against them for being an obviously aggressive anti-American nation on our border, and send the military in and take them back after the war is over, 45 minutes later. Then, as the provisional government, we could get rid of all the junk in the state, raise their education standards and redistrict the state so that it's not gerrymandered for Republicans, but rather more realistically for the growing Hispanic community. And then take them back into the United States -- as a territory first, like Puerto Rico, and then with full state status, once they come up to the country's standards.
Meanwhile, President Obama's popularity has increased to a 3-year high of 60%. Perhaps Republicans could really do him the same favor they did Bill Clinton when they impeach him, and his popularity shot up to 68%.
