I think a second civil war could happen again.
Its over 75,000 now.
They’ll wipe their ass with the petition and life will go on.
Obama’s not going to go down in history as the man who let the country fall apart.
RICK IS A D*CK
Please, this is just silly.
Its an online petition.
The WH will respond with a thank you for your interest in our Democracy. End of conversation. Meanwhile 25,000 plus people just had their names added to the enemies list.
I see nothing wrong with preparing for the inevitable day that the great ship United States founders.
One would have to be a damn fool to not prepare for the eventuality espechially when it’s well known that captain is steering you into the rocks.
People who participate in this are not showing patriotism.
They are showing support for dismantling the United States.
What we need to focus on, are the policies and methods we will use to turn this situation around.
All you have to do, is look at the states involved in this, to know this is a futile effort.
New York, New Jersey, Oregon... folks, you’d wind up with a situation much like what you’ve already got. You’d also wind up with a severely socialist nation on your border.
This petition stuff makes us look one dimensional, and nutty.
Sure, they’ll deny it. And probably sic the IRS on everyone who signed it.
0bama will acknowledge these petitions as well as he’s responded to Benghazi. These petitions are lists of people 0bama wants to know about. I’m sure ‘Big Sis’ will gladly take these names and put them on ‘no fly’ lists.
So, this says to me, "Hail, Obama the King"?
It is broken, FRiends. We no longer own our country. The Fedrool Gum't has co-opted our monies, our properties, and our livelihoods. Regulations, taxes, and redistribution are the law of the land, now. The States are sovereign, but titless...
I will go with those Founders who broke ties with the form of gum't which reduced them to serfs or less! They were common folk just trying to make a life in a new world. THIS IS A NEW WORLD!
The TEA Party was a citizen rebellion due to unjust actions by the recognized gum't. The Declaration of Independence was given to that king by our Patriot Founders when the Throne no longer wanted to do anything but tax, tax, tax.
Sound familiar? But now, it is not only that we are taxed to death (and beyond), but class warfare, racial warfare, and redistribution is the only thing going FORWARD!.
I’m not a secessionist ... but I don’t by the “sunshine patriots” trope. They’re no more sunshine patriots than were Jefferson, or Adams, or Robert E. Lee, or Sam Houston.
These are good people that are tired of negotiating how they live their own lives with statists in California and New York; of fighting for the freedom of fellow citizens who resist genuine liberty at every turn; of trying to convince the “governed” to stop consenting to encroachment in exchange for pitiful “benefits”.
They’ve realized the country doesn’t seem to want them around, and they’ll be fine on their own. The country needs them more than they need it.
“When in the course of human events ...”
Atlas eventually shrugs.
Count on it.
Let’s answer this question first...
How many times in Obama’s 4 years has he been required BY LAW to simply respond to a LEGAL court order... let alone produce any information or documentation proving his eligibility to hold office?
How many times did that happen? and how many times did he comply?
Answer that question, and you have your answer to this one.
Czechoslovaks, Soviets, Yugoslavs and Sudanese didn’t think their nations would ever break apart, either.
No. If it’s not signed by celebs, it’s not worth their time. However, in return, the WH will do everything in it’s power to slap down every state that questions them.
“Will White House be forced to respond to Texas secession petition?”
No. He won’t—he’s the dear leader. He’ll do anything he wants.
If he does respond, it will probably be something like “Sorry ‘bout your luck, Bub” or he’ll just blow it off completely and go play golf. He’s god, remember? And is only accountable to himself.
Of course not. If there's one thing we've come to expect over the last 4 years, it's that the Obama regime has no respect whatsoever for any law, except their own.
What if Texans withheld federal income tax? What could the feds do?
Would Texas lose vital government services? /snort
