Ok, what the article fails to mention, is what exactly the Petition says.

Instead the article tries the same old argument of D versus R. And states that the petitions are due to Obama winning the election. Well, again I say, what exactly does the petition say? What is it calling for?

Here is what the one from Florida says:

"Peacefully grant the State of Florida to withdraw from the United States of America and create its own NEW government.
We the people of the great state of Florida, do see that in today's world the Federal Government has not led our citizens justly and with honor. We therefore as free men and women of our great state do believe that it is time to take matter upon ourselves to ensure our continued freedom, and to enact our own laws and here buy govern ourselves without the federal government's involvement in our internal matters from this day forward.

They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.

Benjamin Franklin: 1775"

Now, where in that petition does it call for D or R's? Oh wait. It does not.

Under Baby Boy Bush, the Democrats went nuts. Calling Bush a tyrant, said Bush was taking away our freedoms and liberties. Now this is correct. Look at the Patriot Act. So the Democrats we right on this one.

But here is what I do not get. Now that Baby Boy Bush is gone and the prodigal son Obama has taken the reins, where are the Democrats now? Obama extended every Bush freedom taking policy and made new ones? So where are Dems? If you are so proud of the prodigal son, lets hear the excuse from the Obama apologists.

Now for you Republicans. Under Baby Boy Bush, you called the Democrats hippies and nut jobs when they screamed over the Patriot Act and you apologized for Bush because he was "protecting us". But, now that Obama is doing the same thing, you yell and scream.

WRONG!

We have pointed out that the Bush Tax Cuts kept the recession from getting deeper, which is why economists suggested obama extends them. Then HE thumps his chest and says, "I kept the recession from getting deeper."

He didn't get bin laden, he used Bush policies to get bin laden. Everyone with a brain knows that. He and the nutball Biden "we got bin laden".

The Patriot Act has stopped numerous attacks, already proven. Obama campaigned against it, along with many other Bush policies he kept, then he calls Romney a flip flopper. LMAO

The main thing is obamacaretax, already causing layoffs, business failings and higher medical costs.

Now he want's another 1.6 trillion to try the things again that he failed at in his first term???????? DUH

Look at California businesses leaving their state......

No one is seceding, bozo.

No one from th left who threatened to leave in 2004 did so either.

Texas puts more money into the federal coffers than you two bozo's states combined, moron. Texas gets back 90 cents to the dollar they put in. So how is that a drain? You're fkn idiotic statements are a hoot.
Texas secedes:

No Social Security for retired people.
No Medicare for them
15 military installations closed.
Johnson Space Center closed.
No federal money for infrastructure maintenance
No federal police on the border with Mexico.

Texas does pay its way. Unlike most red states it is
a net contributor to the federal government.

But to lose all of the above would be hard to swallow
even for Texas.

And Rick Perry has change his mind.

WRONG!

Bush tax cuts on top of Reagan tax cuts are the main reason
we had the recession. Several trillion dollars left the
middle class and wound up in the pockets of the very rich and there is no trickle down. Those trillions of dollars were essentially lost to the American economy.

Ergo: Recession

Ok, first of all, where in my post does it parade the Obama banner? Oh wait. It does not. So try again.

Now your sentence of "The Patriot Act has stopped numerous attacks, already proven" shows how much you are not aware of and what that law actually does.

Here is your history lesson of the day. Look at the patriot Act. It will take you 3-4 days to read it and Congress voted on it after a 15 minute review. Then read the enforcement policies of the King's Stamp Act. Then, check out Hitler's Enabling Act. And then compare the 3. You will find they are all the same thing.

Also, the Patriot Act does not protect you. Only "you" can protect "you".

You may be willing to sacrifice your freedom, but, you should nobody should have the authority to forcibly sacrifice others freedom.

Your Obama Phone will run out of minutes and you won't be able to buy a loaf of bread with your Obama Stamps. And what will the Libretards do when the Obama Check doesn't come on the first of the month? Obama will get his Revenge on The United States of America by dividing it before he destroys it. This is Obama's plan,Obama hates White People and he hates America. Obama said vote for revenge and he is getting it now. The only way we can save our lives is to seperate our selves from the madness of Socialism before it is to late. I hate liberals and liberals hate me so lets go our seperate ways and see who survives.
Don't wait. Pack your bags now and take as many other teabaggers as you can with you.

Hey stupid, take a breath, and ask yourself if Reagan's tax rates were higher than anything Pres Obama is suggesting.

If you're true to yourself, you'll tell yourself Reagan's tax rates were higher.

But you're sheep. And facts don't matter to you. Head back in the sand.

You mean when Patraeus testifies tomorrow or Friday? I agree. I won't be laughing though. I will be mourning for the first Ambassador lost since 1979 and how rotten our country has become with people like Obama ruining our country. It's really sad.

The 2011 wildfires that raged through scores of Texas counties, coupled with the ongoing drought, underscore a painful truth....Texas needed FEMA.

Without FEMA Texas residents taxes would skyrocket, if they wanted same services against natural disasters.

The Gov knows this.
