A petition from an Arlington, Texas man, launched Nov. 9 via the Obama White House website’s “We the People” tool, demanded that Texas be allowed to secede from the United States has more than 73,000 signatures.

The US continues to suffer economic difficulties stemming from the federal government’s neglect to reform domestic and foreign spending. The citizens of the US suffer from blatant abuses of their rights such as the NDAA, the TSA, etc. Given that the state of Texas maintains a balanced budget and is the 15th largest economy in the world, it is practically feasible for Texas to withdraw from the union, and to do so would protect it’s citizens’ standard of living and re-secure their rights and liberties in accordance with the original ideas and beliefs of our founding fathers which are no longer being reflected by the federal government.

According to The White House, the petition must reach 25,000 signatures within 30 days in order to be considered. “If a petition gets enough support, White House staff will review it, ensure it’s sent to the appropriate policy experts, and issue an official response,”

Said Rick Perry:

We cannot allow Washington’s tax and spend, one-size-fits-all mindset to jeopardize our children’s future, undermine our personal liberties and drive our nation down a dangerous path to greater dependence of government.

Let’s just suppose it could actually  happen……

Considering that a vast amount of the Texas economy revolves around business with[in] in the U.S.  It would lose A LOT of business. especially in white-collar jobs in DFW, Houston, etc., unless it arranged some kind of sweat-heart deal with the U.S., which the U.S. wouldn’t do. They would lose the vast bulk of the U.S. military associated with the state, which would be a MASSIVE blow to their economy.

But it’s really all for naught anyway.   The White House’s online rules do not prohibit Americans from signing a petition that would not affect states where they live so a large majority of signers ate Brietnart.com and tea party trolls and don’t even live in Texas.

But there’s even a better petition at the White House site that I urge everyone to sign.

It’s a petition to DEPORT anyone who has signed a silly secession petitions!

Ha!

  1. The racism of yesteryear has come full circle in our county. The entire world embraced our choice of a black President four years ago and most nations of the world still support him. The fringe elements of Republican sect have crept through into the mainstream once again with conservative mouthpieces planting the seeds of hate. The only doubt lies here at home rooting from bigotry. Watch the white hands paint Obama in Blackface at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2012/10/bamboozling-obama.html

  2. Mr.Hardin, This isn’t about race, or political parties, this is about truthfullness with the public. The problem isn’t about the government or it’s stupidity, it’s about the American people and their ignorance to elect the kind of thieves in office. Are they all thieves and spineless politicians,no, but clearly about 90% are useless. Both parties are not your help nor do they reprsent you,wake up.
