That's great! the secession movement will be on fire very soon. But beware, states that want to secede will need military protection. Make sure that your service men and women abide by the people first or at least prepare for bloody revolution. The time has come!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 26312040


Texan's can provide for their own military protection. A month of boot camp/training/guarding for able bodied citizens beats the hell out of DHS's bootjaq gestapo running Amerika.

When they joined the union, I think they had the get out clause. Obama is the treason. Not Texans.
 Quoting: NightWisp


This right here... Texas is called the Lone Star State because of that clause. They were apprehensive about joining the Union and wanted a get out of jail card which they have or had, not sure if its changed.

I hope their new republic or country or whatever they're calling themselves won't be relying on tourism to heavily as a source of income.

Place is a wasteland.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27382151


YOu're full of shit. Texas has some of the most beautiful places on earth. Yeah, there are ghettos too...but that's all over.

Ya know...Yankees are like hemmorhoids...if they come down and go back up...you can live with them...but if they come down and stay they are a pain in the ass. We've had some libs come down here and try to push their dumbass ideas and messed up some things...but we sent them packing.

Im a Texan and EVERYBODY who isn't on welfare or gay I know didnt vote for Obama and wants to secede.
Nothing against gays, but anyone with a brain knows Obama just wants to appeal to them for more votes..

I signed it, and told everyone I know to.
I hope it goes through. Obama supporters should be put in their own state if they want a dictatorship.

Texas became the USA's second-largest economy during the past decade — displacing New York and perhaps heading one day toward challenging California — in one of the biggest economic shifts in the past half-century.

Re: BREAKING - Texas Secession Petition just keeps growing and growing!
There is always room for seccession in our dialogue. The world has changed, circumstances have changed and this union can surely change. Perhaps Texas or any of the other states for that matter want to remain nuetral or perhaps this show of disapproval for American interventionism, illegal drone wars, and outright attack on our civil liberties will send the message to the world that we too are sick of it and no longer support those policies. This doesn't have to be bloody it can be peaceful done. I am cheering for Texas on this one...GO TEXAS GO!!! IF any state can serve as an example for seccession they can they have one of the largest economies in the world and practically no debt!!! Sign it

Wonderful link! Thank you... I agree that these secession threads will result in nothing more that a grumbling complaint and it's why I reiterate my call to sign the OTHER petition of interest on that site which calls for a recount.

[link to petitions.whitehouse.gov (secure)]

I truly believe that their "response" may be nothing more than words on paper, even to the recount petition. However, it will possibly bring the issue to light in the main stream and thus gain a little momentum.

Wow, so if you manage to break away and make your own little country, what happens when the next hurricane hits the gulf? No FEMA for you.

What happens when your highways need repair?

What happens to funding for public education?

What happens to government research and grant money that universities and grad students in Texas rely on for education and research?

What happens to the millions who rely on Medicaid and SCHIP for health care?

Better build up your own Army, once other countries realize you're vulnerable they'll dive right in - The US won't send help, you're on your own.

If you get a batch of comtaminated food the FDA won't be forthcoming about where it orignated from - you'll have to take care of that yourself. You might want to create your own CDC too. If there is a pandemic you'll be on your own for tracking patient zero and developing a vaccine.

I could go on, but you get the picture I hope.

I predict chaos, civil unrest and the rise of warlords.

Because there's nothing in federal law saying they can't fly at the same height.

Federal law only states that the flag cannot be flown underneath a state flag, or on a pole that is shorter then the one a state flag is on.
