TEXAS prepares to NULLIFY the TSA and NDAA
Dissatisfaction is spreading rapidly throughout a very divided nation in the wake of the Nov. 6 elections, as citizens in nearly every state have begun petitioning the federal government to leave the union.

The secession effort is being led by the independence-minded citizens of Texas, with more than 111,000 residents having signed an online petition requesting secession as of this writing.

Lawmakers in Texas are set to respond to a growing wave of discontent with federal authority, as they look set to consider a pair of bills that will set the state on a collision course with Washington.

Let the nullification begin

According to the Tenth Amendment Center, "a national think tank that works to preserve and protect the principles of strictly limited government through information, education, and activism," the state legislature will consider a pair of bills aimed at protecting some basic civil liberties for citizens.

Earlier this week, Rep. David Simpson, R-Longwood, pre-filed a measure called "The Texas Travel Freedom Act," or H.B. 80, which would make it a criminal act to intentionally touch "the anus, breast, buttocks, or sexual organ of the other person, including touching through clothing," without probable cause, in the process of allowing someone access to public transportation.

In other words, the bill is aimed at ending pointless, embarrassing and invasive pat downs of travelers by the federalTransportation Security Administration, among others.

Lets hope this makes it thru this time. Just gotta wonder what the admin will hold over our heads. Fed Funding, no-fly zone or the possibility to cut us off all together. It remains yet to be seen what the outcome will be on both sides. Nullify the entire Fed Gubmint would be a good start though.

Re: TEXAS prepares to NULLIFY the TSA and NDAA
Texas politicians will fold faster than a cheap suit, just like they did last year. Texas is all bark and no bite like the rest of America. We love high taxes and tyranny here in the good ol' USSA. It feels so good to live in the land of the fee and the home of the slave.

And because I saw someone in this thread say something to the effect of "it's ridiculous that our country has to try to overturn federal decisions such as NDAA and the TSA organization." If you think that's bad, Dennis K. tried to pass a bill this year that would make it illegal for the federal government to kill American citizens without a trial. Forward!

They are gifting NOTHING to Texas. Texas receives 80 cents on every dollar they give to the Federal government. Texas will be better off without the fed.

What people need to understand is that Fed money to the states is money the Fed took from citizens of those states in the form of federal income taxes. Would it not make more sense for the states to put the fed on an allowance they (the states) control rather than the current extortion the states must endure?

Yes, there will be a transition for Texas, but in the end, they will no longer be enslaved to a collective system.

That much is clear. When murder of US citizens, complete violation of the bill of rights, and armed drones are allowed in America, it's obvious that it's too late to work within the system to fix things. Corrupt laws are not repealed with more laws.

Lady Smith, I agree with all you said...

People love to make assumptions about Texas when they know nothing about the place

First of all, Texas is a state which pays out more than it gets from the feds. Here's a chart from a liberal website, see what side TX is on:

Second...here are some useful facts which I know most are unaware of:
