90,000 Texans Want Texas to Secede, Sign Petition
Adjust text size:
An impressive number of 90,000 Texans want Texas to secede from the United States of America, following the re-election of Barack Obama for a second run as President. The White House has not yet responded to this.
points out, thousands of people have taken to Obama administration’s petition website
to start a petition for secession.
The process is very simple and, as it turns out, it takes only 25,000 signatures to get an official response from the White House.
Texas is already there – and then some
. About 90,000 people have signed the petition already, asking for a new, independent government and peaceful exclusion from the US.
“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,” the petition 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.,” it further says.
“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,” the petition also says.
As noted above, Texas is not the only state to think it would fare better outside the US: petitions have also been started for Louisiana, Florida, South Carolina and Alabama, though they are considerably less successful with the citizens.
However, other petitions ask the Obama administration for something different than secession, though it’s still on a related topic: Strip the Citizenship from Everyone who Signed a Petition to Secede and Exile Them and Deport Everyone That Signed A Petition To Withdraw Their State From The United States Of America are also ongoing petitions.

For some reason, it is not allowing me to sign. It keeps telling me that my password is wrong and that they'll send a link to my e-mail address. The link never comes. Is there anyone else having this problem?

So we lose a bunch of * religious hicks that want little more than a white leader, to deny gays any equality, and to kill any prisoners they want...?
I'd say let them go...let all the states between California and New York go...the only reason I wouldn't love that is because I'd know that they would just pass backwards racists discriminatory laws...

We also wouldn't have Detroit; the city with the most violent crime in America. We won't pass racist laws. You can have our Memphis blacks with the second highest violent crime rate in the nation. You can mix Memphis' 64% blacks with Detroit's 86% black population and you northerners will have a veritable criminal paradise. And, we in Tennessee won't be listed as one of the highest crime states in North America.

Thank you Governor Perry. We are supposed to have freedom of choice. That is the America I grew up in and hate to see us dragged down with the current President.

Obama makes me physically ill with every word. He is destroying this country economically and spriritually and is dividing us by class, race and religion. Please dear god take him away from us.

I feel the same way as you do. As a matter of fact, the night he won, I had nightmares, and I seldom ever experience this. This man is Muslim by faith, he is a practicing socialist and marxist, and he is dragging our country right into his world. Now he is asking for 1.6 trillion dollars for the budget, and I hear this morning that the new figure for people filing for unemployment has again gone over 400,000, and this will just keep climbing. He has committed offenses that would have brought impeachment proceedings against any other person. He has subverted the power of congress by committing an act of war against Libya without the approval of the congress. How many more times will the Government allow him to commit these acts? He has come perilously close to committing high treason in the country is still at war with terrorism. Oh I forgot, He does not like to use that word. If the Government doesn't wake up and set their foot down then this country will be lost forever. He is downsizing our military to levels that we will not be able even to defend ourselves much less to present ourselves as a superpower. We have already lost our triple A rating with our currency, and now we stand to be downgraded again. We are absolutely on the very brink of going bankrupt. It is said and proved that he has spent more money than all of the presidents in the history of the United States combined, and when you consider. that this includes the Revolutionary War, The Civil War, The Spanish American War, The First World War, The Second World War, The Korean War, The Vietnam War, Grenada, And Desert Storm, then you get some idea of how much money we are actually talking about. Just imagine, he has done this in just four years, and now the people of the United States are allowing him four more years. Surely the Government can find an impeachable offense in all of this. Certainly it is malfeasance of office.

Give us a little credit, we are smart enough to realize idiots voted Obama in on change, and look at how many people are loosing jobs and hours due to Obamacare. The economy is just way too bad.

if texas does then as a native born texan, i will return to my home country. remember, we were are on country in 1845, we beat sanny anny. not the usa. and texas does not need usa money. its the other way round. it was a trick of poke, that suckered us into the usa. then in 1861 we side we the new nation of the south,; then the south was invaded my the usa a and losy. so we rejoin the usa. texas as the right too with draw from usa. all states do. but like last time, i bet the bloody usa will just atack us.

If Texas secedes, I will sell my Tennessee assets and move to the state my fellow Tennesseans fought to free. I am not worried in the least by those who say the north would be better off without the southern states. In a few years the south would be an economic powerhouse in the world. I would prefer all the southern states secede and turn away from policing the world and build a free enterprise system in a new nation. We have nothing in common with the northern states except the massive debt accumulated by Washington.

I'm from Pennsylvania and I'm trying to find out where I can sign petitions for Texas, Alabama, etc. to secede. I used to think Lincoln was a great man for keeping the union together. Now I think it was his worst achievement. We'd be much better without you. Please let me know what I can do to help.
