Best known as being the birthplace of the late Buddy Holly, usually peaceful Lubbock, Texas, is now gearing up for civil war in the event that President Barack Obama wins four more years in the White House.
Or at least that's how one town leader sees it.
Lubbock County Judge Tom Head told Fox 34 Lubbock that he is asking for a tax increase to hire deputies to defend the county against the “civil unrest, civil disobedience” and possible “civil war” that he believes will inevitably come with Obama’s re-election, reports The Amazon Post.
"He's going to try to hand over the sovereignty of the United States to the (United Nations), and what is going to happen when that happens," Head explained in the interview.
"I'm thinking the worst. Civil unrest, civil disobedience, civil war maybe. And we're not just talking a few riots here and demonstrations, we're talking Lexington, Concord, take up arms and get rid of the guy."

Head and Lubbock Commissioner Mark Heinrich blamed the possibility of an Obama win for a 1.7-cent tax increase planned for the next fiscal year, which would reportedly generate an additional $832,433.
In the event of civil unrest, Head insisted that Obama would likely resort to sending in U.N. troops. “I don't want 'em in Lubbock County. OK. So I'm going to stand in front of their armored personnel carrier and say 'you're not coming in here'.”
It will be up to the sheriff to back up Head’s Alamo-like stand.
“I've already asked him, I said 'you gonna back me?' He said, 'yeah, I'll back you,’” according to Head. “Well, I don't want a bunch of rookies back there. I want trained, equipped, seasoned veteran officers to back me."
