Texas is up to 23,000 now, I guess. If any state gets 25,000 in one month, the white house has to respond.

From news story: news.yahoo.com

Not everybody who wants to secede is polite enough to write a petition. Peter Morrison, treasurer of the Hardin County (Texas) Republican Party, wrotea post-election newsletterin which he urges the Lone Star State to leave the Union.

"We must contest every single inch of ground and delay the baby-murdering, tax-raising socialists at every opportunity. But in due time, the maggots will have eaten every morsel of flesh off of the rotting corpse of the Republic, and therein lies our opportunity... Why should Vermont and Texas live under the same government? Let each go her own way in peace, sign a free trade agreement among the states and we can avoid this gut-wrenching spectacle every four years."

Texas is now over 80,000. Supposedly, the government will respond to any petition signed by over 25,000 signatures. Gee, I wonder if Illinois could secede (I'm sure many downstaters and suburbanites would sign it). What would Rahm Emanuel do about that? hmmm, I may look to see if anyone in Illinois has started a petition.

Wow, I just looked and someone started a petition for Illinois to secede!!! Of course, it only has 1,681 signatures so far. But, that would be a little embarrassing for Obama, wouldn't it?

Uh, I doubt it as the governor there is as bad as Obama. Talk about communism....told Chik-filet they couldn't have a restaurant there due to their Christian values. Also, very strong unions there.

To use the old adage: "might doesn't make right". The War between the States didn't prove anything philosophically. The war only "solved" the problems in the sense that playground bullies solve problems.

Interpret it any way you want. The fact is that the war did not start over slavery, which was a root cause, but over secession. so for the North it started as a "save the Union" battle. The South fought it to gain the right to secede.

Lincoln changed the purpose of the War via the Emancipation Proclomation, which served the purpose of bringing the root cause of the attempt to secede to the forefront.

All I know is if one or several of the states manage to secede they will have a rush of new citizens. Myself included. Thank God Texas is a big state. I wonder how the east and west coasts would do with out the entire center of the country.

Do you think they'll notice or even care? The only time the right and left coasts even acknowledge the existence of the mid-west is when they need something from there.

A petition to the federal government to secede is mostly just a symbolic gesture. The king will never approve of such an action. As a practical matter, any attempt at secession will be initiated and carried out by that individual state and that individual state alone, without cooperation from the regime.

I just came back from paying for my car inspection...guess what the cost here in PA is almost TWICE what I paid when I lived in TX. Do you know why? If you said too much govt., you got it right. When govt. puts extra cost on businesses even if they keep their employees that cost is passed on to the consumers...now who do you think that hurts? Does it hurt the rich...no, they can afford it. Does it hurt the very poor...probably they don't drive....but it does hurt the poor and the middle class!

I hope all the liberals move out of TX...they want to pay more taxes so they don't belong there...or do they just want other people to pay more taxes to take care of them....let the liberals move out and let it secede because someday I want to move back!
