Peacefully grant the State of Texas to withdraw from the United States of America and create its own
https://petitions.whitehouse.gov ^ | Nov. 9, 2012 | Micah H

Posted on 11/10/2012 1:46:11 PM PST by mom of young patriots

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.

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.

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.

IF, Texas were to secede, there’d be a couple million of us armed, who’d go there to support them.

If you're going to be taken seriously in an effort like this, you're going to have to make sure the petition is written better.

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.

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.

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.

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.
