33k and going strong

what happens now its hit the target?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27594444


this kinda puts into perspective for me

texas population is 26,403,743
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27594444


That number will probably rise geometrically in coming weeks

This is just the continuation of something which began in 2009, fwiw. Anyone surprised by this hasn't been paying attention



The Texas Nationalist movement delivered 1 million signatures to the governor's office in 2009, demanding secession:


[link to www.onepennysheet.com]

Aug 29, 2009

Texans will converge on Austin to deliver a petition to Restore America by Demanding our Sovereignty or we will be forced to call a vote for Secession.

This is straight out of the Declaration of Independence and our right to “alter or abolish” our government if it has, “after a long train of abuses” refused to protect the rights of the people.

At present, the Texas Nationalist Movement has a petition with 1 Million signatures directly calling for a vote of secession.

It's not like all 33k are even in Texas. Anyone from any state can sign it, and a lot of people doing so are clearly from other states.

what?

Talking about leaving tyranny isnt treason...it's the states rights. The government is for the people by the people, not the other way around.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 26245086


Precisely...

Though I believe that their "response" will be something to the effect of a letter stating the actual process for secession, (which hasn't been followed here) and indicate that the signatures are not all from Texas residents.

This is why these secession petitions are somewhat moot. What we need is a nationwide cause... Let's say, For a recount!
 Quoting: Travis Bickle

I signed that one too. Here's the link to that thread and the petition for folks that want to sign that one too.

Thread: Vote Recount - Over 26,000 Signatures in 36 hrs!!!! -- THIS is the petition that NEEDS to be signed!

 Quoting: Travis Bickle


It's just a sign of people's frustrations, no different than when the liberals were encouraging Vermont to secede after Bush won a second term

People have the right to show their dissatisfaction

I love Texas, but are you following this story as well?

It is one I was tracking in 2010, appears to be picking up steam again...it works within our current government's framework, which is always the wise way to go when possible


[link to www.sodahead.com]

We Are 3 States Away From A Constitutional Convention Towards Healthcare Reform

Posted 07/08/10

Governors of 35 states have already filed suit against the Federal Government for imposing unlawful burdens upon them. It only takes 38 (of the 50) States to convene a Constitutional Convention.

Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution -

"Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators and/or Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators and/or Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States ."






 Quoting: IssueX


I personally would not want a constitutional convention right now. It opens the possibility for any changes to be made to it. The people in charge, both sides, could do more damage than good. I believe this procedure has never been used since our founding, only the states radificaton of amendments. States should just secede, if they wish. But most are dependent on federal money so they won't go through with it. Texas or Montana would probably be the 2 that would have the best chance. If they held to our original principles and original constitution, minus the obvious issues we had in the beginning, I would be interested in moving.
