Company Of The Frontier Battalion, Texas Rangers c. 1885
After Texas seceded from the United States in 1861 during the Civil War, many Rangers enlisted individually to fight for the Confederacy.
During the War, the duties of scouting the state frontiers for Union troops, hostile Indians and deserters devolved upon those who could not be drafted into the Confederate Army because of their age or other disabilities.
The Rangers are the oldest state law enforcement body in the United States. The Rangers have taken part in many of the most important events of Texas history, and were involved in some of the best-known criminal cases in the history of the Old West, such as those of Gunfighter John Wesley Hardin, bank robber Sam Bass, and outlaws Bonnie and Clyde. Scores of books have been written about the Rangers, from well-researched works of nonfiction to pulp novels and other such fiction, making the Rangers significant participants in the mythology of the Wild West.
I hope they do civil war in the mcu but it’s the ultimates version of civil war. washington DC gets nuked. texas secedes from the union. white supremacist militias take over segments of the west. captain america is elected president through popular election. “what?” says steve. “that’s not how the US electoral system works. sam I don’t want to be president that’s a terrible idea help me”
maybe someday MRA’s will just colonize Texas and secede from the union and there will be a country that is One Giant Friend Zone and they can have lots of fun with their guns and utter lack of civic responsibility like highway maintenance and sidewalk construction. we’ll call it tex-no-ass and it’ll be a 24/7 Reddit meetup. bronies can roam wild and free. they’ll be so happy
I think that they don’t realize how big and culturally and economically important Texas and the South is to the U.S., and I think they don’t feel an empathetic connection to Southerners or Texans. It doesn’t occur to them that saying something like, ‘Well, good riddance, bye assholes,’ is deeply hurtful and damaging. We are never seen by coastal liberals until we do something bad, and then we are seen as being worthless. So it’s like invisibility until we are hyper visible, and it comes with scorn and disdain.
If Texas secedes from the U.S., Do you think America will keep his glasses?
See this is a funny image to me because if its texas that’s doing the seceding that means that one day america will just be walking around and his glasses will just violently shoot off his face and land somewhere across and he’s like, damn
