I don't think people truly understand the consequences of Texas seceding from the Union. There are a lot of people in Texas that rely on Social Security and Medicare that would loose both of those if Texas was to secede.

Texas has a good economy I think it could govern its self. However I don't think it should. Rick Perry didn't start the petition some guy in Arlington did. Last I checked on our states petition we had over 100,000 signatures but we only needed 25,000.

Also if you have looked a recents news all 50 states have petitioned for secession so that tells you how much all the states have faith in Obama...

Yes but that's assuming that the country of Texas doesn't take a harder stand on border infractions than state of Texas does which in bound by federal laws. A country of Texas could look at it as an act of war where as a state of Tx has no power to defend its borders as a nation. If the threat of war were on the table Mexico might crack down on its side of the border to stop some of the trafficking.

True. But can we even fight a war that would cost millions from Texas as a lone country

Didn't you watch the presidential debates? Rick Perry is not too sharp. Further, Perry now has a taste for greater things; he can't make another run at the presidency if Texas secedes.

In regard to Alaska, I watched a show just a couple of days ago that focused on the migration of violent gangs and drug offenders into the state of Alaska. Sorry, they are everywhere; however, our safety is in the United States as opposed to the Republic of Texas.

If these weak-minded individuals would focus on God, there would be no need for drugs in their lives. God can take you much higher than any drug if you get my meaning.

I say it's all going to crap! Whether we say part of the union or become our own nation, this world isn't meant to last forever.

If a secession was achieved in Texas, a person still qualifies to draw Social Security from the United States if they have already paid into it. That is a fact that a person still qualifies to draw SS in regardless of what country they relocate to from the U S. That is not to say that they will not get screwed out of it but they do qualify. From what I read I conclude that social security is beyond broke anyhow and many soon will not get it anyway you look at it. About medicare, I am left to wonder there. Does Texas have their own healthcare system? I don't know.

First, the majority of the U.S. military come from Texas. Those military members would more than lickly come back to Texas if we became our own nation agagin. The military would not be a problem for Texas.
Second, Texas has alot of industry within it's boarders. Job creation would not be a problem as well. Texas would be better for buisness and buisnesses would move here to get out of the high tax burden of the U.S..
Third, Our boarders with Mexico would be better defended.Texas would more than likely put Texas troops on the boarder to control immagration and drugs coming across. I believe the majority of people are for a tougher stance on drugs coming across.
We as a nation are very devided..
