Dudes and Dudettes…I’ve had this saved to share with you for two days now, finally have the time to post this and see what your opinions are regarding petitions from two states to secede. Texas and Louisiana did this a few days after Dear Leader won reelection.
First up, we have Texas:
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.
Peacefully grant the State of Louisiana to withdraw from the United States of America and create its own NEW government.
As the founding fathers of the United States of America made clear in the Declaration of Independence in 1776:
“When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.”
“…Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it, and institute new Government…”
Now friends…since just last night when I checked the site to sign petitions if so desired, plenty of other states have followed suit, in fact 15 more have done just that, some of the states may surprise you!
To find out if your state is one of them, or to sign the petition…you need to go here.
So…do you think this is much ado about nothing, which will amount to zilch…or do you think the complete opposite?
