All this secession nonsense has been good for a laugh.
Am I surprised that there’s over 100k wingnut crazies in Texas that hate Obama so much they want to secede? Hell no. I would have expected 5 times that number at least. Maybe they’ll get there before the deadline.
Texans have kept a doufus like Rick Perry in office for a long time now. ‘Nuff said.
So,…. this is the petition that I’m going to sign. Only about 5k signatures so far, (and I doubt it will explode), but it’s just my idea of fun. And it’s what I think.
You should take a look at the petitions on the site now,… there’s some real winners.
Force all states to pay their portion of the national debt before they can secede from the union
Residents of all states who wish to secede from the union should be required to take their own advice about ‘personal responsibility’, and pay their share of the national debt before being released to fend for themselves.
This debt must be paid in full, or they cannot leave.
This means no federal assistance, period.
