Contrary to Popular Belief, America is Not a Democracy. It Is a Chucktatorship.
You'll no doubt recognize the headline as one of Chuck Norris's favorite Chuck Norris Facts. Which I don't mention solely because today happens to be Walker, Texas Ranger's 69th birthday, but because of a freshly minted Chuck-penned essay on the conservative Web site World Net Daily. It was forwarded our way by a Friend of Unfair Park who's quite taken with Lone Wolf McQuade's latest and greatest idea: "I may run for president of Texas."
Whoa, say what, Chuck?
On Glenn Beck's radio show last week, I quipped in response to our wayward federal government, "I may run for president of Texas."
That need may be a reality sooner than we think. If not me, someone someday may again be running for president of the Lone Star state, if the state of the union continues to turn into the enemy of the state.
From the East Coast to the "Left Coast," America seems to be moving further and further from its founders' vision and government.
