Secession petitions are filed in 20 states. Reminds me of the Civil War.

The state of Texas has the most signatures of any state thus far. I enjoyed the following letter from Peter Morrison, treasurer of the Hardin County (Texas) Republican Party urging the Lone Star State to leave the Union:

"We must contest every single inch of ground and delay the baby-murdering, tax-raising socialists at every opportunity. But in due time, the maggots will have eaten every morsel of flesh off of the rotting corpse of the Republic, and therein lies our opportunity... Why should Vermont and Texas live under the same government? Let each go her own way in peace, sign a free trade agreement among the states and we can avoid this gut-wrenching spectacle every four years."

*** If a state receives 25,000 signatures, they must receive an official response from the Obama Administration. Let's hope they get it just to embarrass our Godly president (insert sarcasm here).

I will. My only purpose would be to embarrass the White House by having them have to address it if we get enough signatures.

What would happen to people on disability? Would they still get their checks if Missouri seceded?

Nope. And no federal aid to schools or federally funded meal programs, federally insured bank accounts, no assistance to law enforcement, etc. In 2010, Missourians received Federal funding to the tun of $1800 to $2400 per person. There would be no special education programs, temporary assistance for needy families, no Title-1 programs, no federal funding for road and highway improvements. Missouri is above the average in receiving federal funding, most of it for health and human services.

No Social Security for your parents and/or grandparents - are you ready to pitch in and take care of them?

Be careful what you wish for.

The states will not be allowed to secede. It is just a way of making a "statement". We are a very polarized society. Our open immigration policy over the years is coming back to bite us in the butt. The minorities,liberals, and the Democrats are breeding faster than the rest of us. America has been in decline for years.

How unpatriotic. Maybe if people do not approve of the Constitution and the land they should go elsewhere.

The biggest problem facing the GOP right now is this image that many Republicans are sensationalist band wagon jumpers.
I know for a fact that this is not true and that there are many sane and reasonable conservatives out there. But this is batshit crazy. Do you people realize the fire you are playing with? If the states break up you and you ALONE are going to be the ones responsible for destroying the country that you claim to love.

All this patriotic flag waving is well and good, and god bless our troops, and etc etc etc, but then you guys lose the election and suddenly you don't want to be American anymore? I call BS.

Defiling the flag by hanging it upside down on veterans? Yes I know it's the naval sign of SOS.

Attempting to murder family members because they didn't vote for your nominee?

Angry protests on college campuses that degenerate into shouting and rock throwing?

These aren't the "minorities and gimme gimmes" causing all of this. It's you. Each and every one of you have benefited from a Federal program. If it weren't for Federal funding you would have probably never been rich enough to attend a private school, let alone get a good job.Unemployment? Ever taken a loan? Those securities are guaranteed by the federal reserve. That's the only way any bank would EVER lend to someone as risky as a private individual.
YOU are the thing you hate and you don't even know it. Your rehetoric and your false patriotism don't mean squat because in the end it's not about what's right or what's good for the country in the long run, it's about what YOU want right NOW! Give YOU what YOU WANT NOW, or you are going to hold the country you claim to love hostage until you get it.

You people make me sick.

I would be very hesitant to digitally sign my name on anything within the white house website. They will probably send this petition list of IP addresses over to the Internal Revenue Service so get ready for an audit next year. It is not that I do not understand the frustration these people feel, I just don't think I want the white house to have my IP address readily available to wherever they may want to send it. Just saying.

You do realize they are exercising their Constitutional Rights by doing so?

Also, Do I think the Government will ALLOW the states to leave, of course not. However, when we fought for our independence, was it peacful? Absolutely not! The thought of it being peacful is absurd. Nevertheless, I do hope and pray it makes the Feds wake up and realize that the country is NOT happy with the state of things. This is a bold bold statment, and I personally am glad its happening.

Before anyone bitches about me not being a patriot, Im currently over seas, with the USMC which Ive proudly fought with for 6 years now. My contract is up in a few months and Ill be returning to Missouri.

Do I think a legit second civil war is on the horizon, I dont know. Do I see the possibility, absolutely. Would I be a part of it, honestly depends on what we would be fighting for, and the possible end result.

This guy is working off of a lot of assumptions.

He wants to be completely separate from the United States and even go so far as to shoot people attempting to enter at the borders, wants to get rid of schools and haven o taxes of any kind yet he wants to keep social security and maintain use of the American Dollar.
You can leave but we're keeping our money. I give it maybe two generations before Texas would collapse under it's own lack of infrastructure. It's leaders would be incompetent and it's businesses would be failing due to lack of educated leaders, and I'm sure the "neutral" country of Free Texas would not stay out of a war long what with mandating citizens to shoot anyone who doesn't speak English.
