Texas is REALLY ticked off at the election results. November 9, 2012 a petition calling for Texas to secede from the Union has gained 27,000 signatures – enough to prompt a response from the White House. This marks the first time a secession petition has ever gained this much support.
Texas has the 13th largest GDP in the world and it would be financially viable for Texas to stand alone – a fact that seems to elude federal government officials.
The authors of the petitions state that by Texas leaving the United States would protect the Texans "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."
If Texas secedes we will be annexing Colorado back – we want the Air Force Academy and Aspen. Of course New Mexico will be next- we need some spas and Roswell. Any questions?
