Texans rally for secession

The YouTube clip below displays excerpts from last Saturday's rally at the State Capitol in Austin, Texas. Two candidates for the Republican nomination for Governor spoke at the rally: Debra Medina and Larry Kilgore. Mr. Kilgore is a well-known activist in secessionist circles, who garnered more than 270,000 votes in his bid for the U.S. Senate in 2008 -- on an explicitly secessionist platform. I don't know how much of a threat he is to Rick Perry and Kay Bailey Hutchinson, but the race will be (to say the least) fascinating to watch.
