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 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. 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.

Sorry guy,too much blood spilled over that particular piece of land to just give it up.

Next thing you know California will want to "break away" from the continent.

Florida is going to get all greedy w/ their oranges..

Tell you what,make us a offer.

We sold Alaska to the oil companies and Hawaii to the Hotel industry.. we could make a deal for Texas.

Would make a interesting E-bay auction..

You just better hope Mexico don't out bid you.

Wait a second,hold the phone..how much do we still owe to China?

I have a idea how we can get our debts paid and prevent cowboy hats from coming back in fashion.

Well it appears you have forgotten your history..

You once had a "new government" things didn't work out so well for you.
What is more amusing is the petition itself..

1000 Texans think you can petition the government for independence.

Let me put it in perspective for you..

If you had everyone at your workplace petition the boss to kiss your @ss...
What kind of response do you think you would get?

Do you think he would say"well..since 1000 of you want it..ok bend over."

And to add to the ignorance of the OP..he has AMERICAN flag as his icon... dimwit.

If you are what the new republic of Dumbassastan has to offer..won't last long.

I read an article in the news today where Louisiana is also quietly seeking to secede from the US.

It's an understandable trend considering the leftist socialism being pursued by an entrenched leftist Democrat majority in DC.
Maybe the thing to do is try an experiment for a few years or decade?
Let all those states that want to legislate in a conservative manner have independence from the DC governed status quo of entitlement hand outs, over regulation, high taxation and socialist ideals.

Guess which side will have people fleeing a failed society in a few years or months?
Katie....bar the doors.

Remember when we had a commission to hunt down enemies of the state?

People keep talking about running away from a struggle,I imagine we will have a commission to hunt down separatist.

Keep talking un-American B.S. see what happens...

Oh for God's sake GROW THE FCUK UP already.

Sound like a bunch of little kids who didn't get their way so they're going to take their ball and go home.

The Black Feller won. Get over it. You didn't see the rest of the country try to kick Tex-ass out of the union because of The Shrub!
