I don't get it either. There isn't a basement at the Alamo. In fact, few places in Texas have basements because of the low elevation, which is practically at sea level. Stupid headline makes no scents.

Why would you keep an original on site like that? I mean, I know there's like a billion originals and all, but still, each and every one should be locked in a vault far, far away from tourist spots.

The document reads: 'We're not in Mexico any more, Gordo'.

But is it the original or a copy?

Rick Perry stole it so he could use it to help write the new one.

Step 1: Fake priceless document.

Step 2: Discretely tell a few members of your Daughters of the Republic of Texas chapter that frame contains hitherto unknown copy of priceless document.

Step 3: "Steal" priceless document in obvious inside job.

Step 4: Claim a shiatload of insurance money during investigation into suspicious document.

/I won't be suprised if it turns out exactly like this.

How long has Texas been blathering on about independence? They're like a 24 year old kid who won't move out of the basement. Get on with it already!

I hope the they. And they could theoretically pull it off. They have a coastline, they're not locked inside the US (as a state such as Wyoming for example, would be). They've got a pretty decent sized population, lots of natural resources. Their stats guard (not army national guard) might be able to step up and take on the role of a military. Fresh water and food production might be problems though.

This is all amusing they don't have to fight a war for independence. If they did, they'd get smashed pretty easily. I'm just saying that if any state in the US has to revert to being its own nation, Texas would be pretty close to the top of states who could pull it off. So could Cali for that matter, though their people would probably run their new country into the ground with social spending.

The giant amount of limestone just under the surface dirt doesn't help, either. You ever tried clearing that crap? It's no fun.

It does contain the following grevince against the Mexican governement:

"It has failed to establish any public system of education, although possessed of almost boundless resources, (the public domain,) and although it is an axiom in political science, that unless a people are educated and enlightened, it is idle to expect the continuance of civil liberty, or the capacity for self government."

It was probably just some righth wing nut jtrying to purge this founding doctorine fromour state.
