25K treason jackets,hummm ,about a month.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 26090080


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

The 13 colonies decreed their independence from the English king on those very grounds, after all... it would be quite ironic to say today people would be traitor who wanted to free themselves from some unwanted ruler.

Speaking purely theoretically, of course.

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 ."

Let's suppose for an instant Texas has seceded and is now an independent republic.

What if Mexico, who has resented having lost Texas for a long time if I am not mistaken, attacks Texas in a sudden war of conquest in an attempt to get it back for good ?

Will the US (of the 49 statesq) step in ?

Re: BREAKING - Texas Secession Petition just keeps growing and growing!
Truth is if the u.s federal government had a brain , they would see it as a plus. Texas could break away with LA . Give the states a year of military protection.Allow the states to build their own military's and control their own borders.It would allow the states to be removed from federal requirements on oil drilling, refinery production, etc.It would bring down the price of fuel in the u.s with trade. Because the states arent going to join any opec, or U.N bullshit.

But then again the federal government is trying to destroy the u.s not fix it. They are pulling for the one world government.

Same talk coming out of California...some even say it may be the solution to California's debt:

Should California Be Its Own Country?




Southern California To Secede From State?





[link to www.californiarebellion2012.com]

[link to www.petitiononline.com]

The case for California's secession is as follows:


* California Has Been Abandoned by the Federal Government

In California's greatest hour of need she was brutaly abandoned
by the federal government, under both Democratic and
Republican administrations.

When California was devasted by an energy crisis artificially created
by hostile forces in other states, the federal government did nothing
to protect her and actively held California's hands by her side so
she could not defend herself from her attackers.

This purposeful betrayal broke the sacred trust between Calfornia
and the federal government.

No event could make it more blindingly clear why California has
nothing to gain by staying faithful to the federal governement and
nothing to lose by striking out on her own.


* The Federal Government Steals Tax Dollars from California

California's federal tax burden is great. California pays far more in
taxes than she gets back. A majority of the nation takes from
California and gives little in return. California and Californians
are being used.

You mistake the relationship between Texas and Mexico. That wouldn't happen. We are trading partners. Mexicans have always been a part of Texas. There is alot of Mexican influence in our culture. Now we'd surely come down harder on the border than the feds especially with all the violence there these days but Texas and Mexico are pretty close. Have a look at any Texas town next month and just watch how many Mexicans go home for the holidays. They take money to their family there then come back. It's all very intertwined. That's why immigration policy is so complicated for border states. With it you have a friendship and a close relation but also a problem.
