Independence Day, March 2

March 2, 1836 changed history, and established the world as we know it today. On that day, The Republic of Texas declared its independence from Mexico. In a war fought by farmers, ranchers, shopkeepers, and other ordinary folks against the Santa Anna's powerful Mexican Army, the good guys won.

Here is a link to the text of the declaration. It is instructive reading for Texans. For non-Texans, take a look and see why we are so proud of our state and its heritage.


I wish we could declare our independence from Obama ....
