rufus-t-firefly: The response should just be a photo of Gen. Sherman.

tallen702: So, seeing as how you are declaring your intent to secede by signing one of these petitions, does that mean you're renouncing your citizenship? And if so, what does that mean for question j on form 4473? Link. Wouldn't be surprised to find out that the people who signed these petitions don't realize they just gave Barry and the BATFE a list of people who technically won't pass their NICS check anymore.....

Including the yahoos who signed it and don't live anywhere near Texas?

so could some one out side of texas sign this thing with the aim of getting texas booted out of the union.
just a thought.

I thought Texas could secede without consequence at any time. Ask any "real" Texan and they will tell you that.

Texas, please proceed!

Someone somewhere just had a wet dream come true.

That was before Texas did in fact secede to join the CSA. I have no idea what the terms of re-admission to the Union were.

How I would love to see this.

"You are free to secede, go with our blessings."
"In other news, people of the world, this state is no longer part of the USA and is no longer under our military protection. Please don't attack them right away, as they don't have any form of standing army, navy, or air force, and they would probably crumple before you in surrender within hours of the declaration of hostilities. Give 'em a few years to get on their feet, alright?"

I like the idea
..and while the number of people signing the petition is nowhere near the main of the texas populace
I would really like to see how this would work out.

You are grossly underestimating the pride of a texan in being a texan.
and let's be honest, the government doesn't care about what happens on the borders of mexico anyway. Let's just increase that

whidbey: Pretty sure that wouldn't even cover most highway/road repairs.

Try again.

They could tax the gasoline sold at the pump to pay for their roads.

You know, like every state and county does....
