This is absurd.

You don’t “petition” the US government to leave.

You just get up and leave.

We petition the obama administration to: Peacefully grant the State of Texas to withdraw from the United States of America and create its own NEW government.

Neither Texas, nor any other State, has petitioned to secede. This is only a petition of citizens from Texas.

There was a thread posted about the Louisiana “petition” earlier. I think these have been set up by libs for the purpose of instigation.

While petitioning the government to leave is silly, what is not silly is the momentum that is building for a serious look at secession. For a peep at our new constitution, see

All we need is some leadership from the powers that be in Austin. I also see a meeting between the leaders in Oklahoma convening with the leaders in Texas for a joint push for secession.

If at first you can’t secede, try, try again!

From the source:”we petition the obama administration to:Peacefully grant the State of Texas to withdraw from the United States of America and create its own NEW government.”

As I wrote about the Louisiana petition:

1. As far as I know, the Obama administration has no authority to “grant the State of Texas to withdraw from the United States of America government”, peacefully or otherwise.

2. I don’t see why Texas would need to create its own NEW government, unless they want to establish a monarchy or go communist or something.

it is best to let Texas go, both for the US and Texas.

I think you better start with petitioning Austin to have Texas declare Independence.

The Austin Liberal that Texas has in the Governors mansion will not let Texas secede....Rick Perry is a Liberal Globalist and he wants a North American Union...not an Independent Texas

No one really desiring Texas independence is going to want Perry anywhere near Texas when it happens.

Wouldn't Texas be better advised to increase its regional influence and just split into 5 States like its Texas Annexation document prescribes?

10 senators, not just 2. That would shift the balance of power in the US Senate real quick.

Would balance of the influence of a Puerto Rico statehood too

FReegards!
