Texans want to dis-associate from the USA. Bye!

I’ve heard of this in the past, have a link to something new that I haven’t read yet?
Does seem like one of those places we’re better off ditching, lots of coast line to catch all those growing hurricanes and a whole lot of nothing in the middle. Does have some nice cities though.

It’s against the law for a state to secede from the Union. President Johnson made sure of it. What strikes me funny is that, at one time or another, just about every state wanted to secede, especially at election time.

Many of the states filed petitions of cesession after the last election and that is not unusual for any election. In fact, all 50 states filed petitions which are all in vain.

The question I have is, “Do you have to reside in Texas to sign the Texas petition?” ;)

Gary, just Google Texas cesession petition and you will find it has reached 80,000 signatures … but still in vain.

I thought all you guys wanted CA to drop off the edge. Now I see you want to get rid of TX. If I may ask, what is the “correct” state to be from? Please don’t tell me it’s somewhere south of the Mason-Dixon Line. That’s kind of like saying “somewhere over the rainbow”.

Texas can’t afford to secede. They get too much money from the federal government. It’s all talk. We would have to pay taxes if that happened.

I don’t think any state governments are involved in these petition drives. The petitions I know about were created on the WhiteHouse.gov site. Anybody can start one and if it gets enough signatures the President will respond to it. You can “sign” any petition on the site regardless of what state you live in – even the state of denial. -Jack

Correction : Those weirdos who are from Texas who want to secede, there is a deserted island somewhere for them to secede to.

Or we could give it back to Mexico where it rightfully belongs.

Toidiem, I’ve always believed the US should extend all the way to the Panama canal. Plus the border to the south would become a choke point and very easy to control. Canucks are our brothers…we don’t need to take over their land. Except maybe for the coal, oil sands and now the oil in the melted Artic. There’s a lot to be said for controlling and owning from Alaska to the canal. Thoughts? BTW, this is in sync with my open borders beliefs. Good for us…good for them.

Interesting. I’ve always believed that Panama should extend its borders north to the Arctic.
