Skip to comments.Peacefully grant the State of Texas to withdraw from the United States of America and create its own

Here is how the document reads-
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.
LOL.... this is the second state to do this. I would love for this to spread across the entire country.
Texas? Or some Texans?
It’s part of their agreement to become part of the union!I don’t blame them one LITTLE BIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I’m movin’ to Texas!!!
Nice idea, but they need to do a grammar check.
Temporarily reviving the TTC PING list for this article.
Sure wish the goofball that wrote this would’ve cleaned up the grammar. Kinda embarrassing.
First Louisiana,now Teaxa. I don’t blame them one bit!Who would REALLY want to be a part of Obongo’s America?????????????????
And what’s up with “practically feasible”.
Nowhere near as eloquent as...
“When in the Course of human events...”
“when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government...”
“The history of the present President of the United States is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States.”
But it’ll have to do.
Another with some 167 comments if anyone is interested in them
Was this submitted by the Texas Legislature or just some group?
So far it’s been signed by 393 people, which - even if all are actually from Texas - is still a bit short of a majority of Texas’ roughly 25,750,000 citizens.
This isn’t “Texas” - it’s a bunch of self-important clowns who imagine that that they speak on behalf of the actual Texas.
LOL! I think the Louisiana petition had more than this one.
All my exes live in Texas, that’s why I hang my hat in Tennessee.
“Petition the Whitehouse” Bah - Do it in your State House. Tell ‘em good bye.
Texas can do it.
If Texas were to actually secede I would be very tempted to move there.
The Louisiana citizens’ petition to withdraw
Texas...blah, blah, blah...Texas...blah, blah, blah.
If it were on statehouse letterhead with Governor Perry’s signature, I’d be on the phone to U-Haul.
We could use a United Free States of America and let Zer0 have his and his followers’ 0bamanation.
Sounds good to me, we can watch the leftists and welfarists get U-Hauls an leave
IF, Texas were to secede, there’d be a couple million of us armed, who’d go there to support them.
The La petition, is a BHO production. You report yourself directly to his blackstappo when you sign.
Of course Texas will never be granted secession, but if they are pack my bags Ethel we are moving.
Where in the Constitution does it say a state has to ask permission?
IOW “Don’t Mess with Texas!”
Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana would make a good group. Just look at the natural resources involved.
to do so would protect it's citizens'
"it's" is a contraction for "it is." Your sentence as written makes no sense. The word you're looking for is "its" -- no apostrophe. And the construction of the sentences isn't much better.
It's a great sentiment, and one with which I heartily agree. But get a pro to write it for you before you present it and make a fool of yourself.
Texas is little different culturally from California.
Gay and LA raza mayors and Austin is to the left of LA.
I like to dream too.
I dream that the US is still filled with self reliant, God fearing people.
One’d would have to ‘purify’ the college towns first.
Maybe so, but for a change, let's let our 'extremists' rant like the Left does instead of hurrying to smack them down.
Anything which pulls the "center" back to the right a little is fine by me.
Do you think the ghetto slugs and arab ragheads in the White House know or care anything about English grammar?
It has only been up since yesterday, Jeff. Don’t you suppose people will have to find it before they can sign it, sheesh.
I encourage you to also read this earlier post http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/chat/2957815/posts?q=1&;page=1#1 on FR cause there are some mighty well written comments on it.
So speaks wideawake from New Jersey.
The kiddies in the coastal cesspool “gimme” constituency that keeps electing these Democrat Santas and subjecting the rest of us red states to their slouch to Gomorrah need the resources of the “producer” states to keep their lifestyles afloat. That’s why Obama needs the military and his own civilian military brownshirts to keep us redneck bitter clingers in line.
LOL, someone should write a song about that. Oh, maybe some one already did.
Some Texans. Until it comes from the TX Legislature, it’s nothing.
Here in Michigan we could make a go of it, we do have a lot of, ahem, people of color. If we could get those folks to move to , say, Chicago, we could make it work!!!
