["----------TEXAS-------- --
Soon after President Barack Obama's re-election last week, the White House has received petitions asking his administration to allow individual states to secede peacefully from the United States of America.

Texas among other state as of 4 p.m. Monday is leading with 31,975 signatures in support.

"The U.S. continues to suffer economic difficulties stemming from the federal government's neglect to reform domestic and foreign spending," reads the petition, which was created last Friday by 'Micah H', who lists Arlington, Texas, as his residence. "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."

According to the whitehouse.gov ( http://1.usa.gov/TwAheb ), 25,000 signatures are needed by Dec. 9 in order for the Obama administration to issue a response.

Other petitions have been filed for other states, see here ( http://1.usa.gov/TwAuhl ).

In 2009, Gov. Rick Perry raised the idea of secession. "When we came into the nation in 1845, we were a republic, we were a stand-alone nation," he said to a group of bloggers. "And one of the deals was, we can leave anytime we want. So we're kind of thinking about that again."

Perry's office later clarified that he never advocated for secession."]

There are 4 other states and several counties where the red-necked evangelical bible toting extremist republicans are wanting to secede. each one is worded differently and some are poorly worded and constructed by the little-literate minded people.

We in El Paso Do Not Need to Secede from the United States but from Texas starting at the Pecos River near the western North South line of the panhandle and going to the Rio Grande Pecos river confluence. The United states when they took Texas in as a state granted the people the right to divide the state into five states. We in El Paso should take the option up and as we are mostly independents and Democrats could form the West Texas state and have one representative and two senators on our side.

El Paso is the last gteat bastian of Democrat Lunacy in the great state of Texas.

The scession will never happen but it would be better to get away from this POS in the Whitehouse prior to his destruction of the US as we know it.

I like the secession idea and don't appreciate the originator of this post throwing cold water on our hopes. I used to be an angry liberal but I now I am conservative and wish to live by the constitution as it was written. I urge everyone to sign this and petition Perry to take the plunge. We can do this if we band together and don't let naysayers stand in your way.

It is actually the Democrtas that hate America. It is them that are destroying it from within. The so-called President is selling the US down the drain to China with no regard for the rule of law. He is tuning this country into a third world nation that is now a laughing stock world wide.
We are viewed as a paper lion by every worthless little despot wananbe dictator in the world. They attack our Embassies and obama does nothing. They murder our diplomats and obama does nothing. They shoot at our drones and obama does nothing. they threaten this country and obama does nothing.
W may not have been the best but we didn'thave little punks like Libya and Iran telling us to pi$$ off and laughing at us.

So there would be 51 states? Or would you add Puerto Rico too and keep it an even number?

Well the people in East Texas have 35,000 signatures for the secession petition to present to the president when they get it certified. They only needed 25,000 names.

The coount on the petition is now over 88,000. That means obama must respond to it.
There are also a gfew others as well.
NC has amost 24,000
Alabama has 24,500
Florida has 27,000
Ten has 24,000
Ga has 25,000
SC has 18,000.

So it isn't just Texas they have support even from some pro obama states like NY and NJ.
