In his fight against the non-existent plot to seize control of the American southwest through military force, Texas Governor Greg Abbott has found an ally in Kentucky senator and presidential candidate Rand Paul.
Rand son of Ron assuaged the fears of Iowa radio host Jan Mickelson by saying that he will investigate the matter.
"You know I've gotten a few questions about it on the road and I really don't—" Paul responded. "I'm not sure about exactly what is going on with that."
"It's making some people nervous, but it doesn't take much to make people nervous nowadays," Mickelson said. "If you get a chance to, I'd like to know what the rest of the story is on that."
"We'll look at that also," Paul assured him.
Rand could have just as easily said that there's nothing to it and that the U.S. military is not planning to take over Texas, but there's always that slim chance, I suppose, that a military coup is imminent.
Why the hell would anyone want to take over Texas?
