Texas Judge: ‘Civil War’ a Possibility if Obama Re-Elected

Texas Judge Tom Head is already thinking ahead to some of the worst case scenarios if Barack Obama is re-elected. Like, for example, how the president would hand over control of the United States to the United Nations, which could then result in all sorts of bad things happening! And in Lubbock, Texas, too, of course, because obviously that’s the first place the U.N. would (hypothetically) invade.

And what would that lead to? “Civil unrest, civil disobedience, civil war, maybe. And we’re not talking just a few riots here and demonstrations, we’re talking Lexington, Concord, take up arms and get rid of the guy,” Head said.

The judge outlined his conspiracy theory while he was—get this—calling for a tax hike, which would subsequently be used to increase local law enforcement, and thus leave it more prepared for said civil war.

Oh, and did we mention already that he’s an elected official in Lubbock County?
