Texas Gets 25k Required Signatures for Official Response from WH About Secession

Well, Texas, you have done it.

As of 8:40 a.m. ET, more than 62,000 people have already signed the petition on The White House website to let Texas peacefully secede from United States of America and “create its own NEW government.”

The petition, created on Nov. 9, argues for secession.

According to The White House, the petition must reach 25,000 signatures within 30 days in order to be considered.

“If a petition gets enough support, White House staff will review it, ensure it’s sent to the appropriate policy experts, and issue an official response,” explains the website.

    Us Texans will welcome ya’ll. Bring your guns and ammo when you come. :)

    Hope the other 19-22 states join the movement but I hope that the current administration doesn’t put anyone whos name appears on the petition don’t join the already established “kill list” O has.

  7. saltporkdoc says:

    …and the response, no matter how low it is prioritized, will be…”NO”

  8. bob s says:

    How do we get a petition from our state…MO….. I would love to see this happen…. let the welfare rats move to N Y and CAL

    • Ed Scott says:

      Start a drive, get at least 25,000 signatures on it. That is the number that is required for some low lever administration flunkey to review it. Anyone can do it. It does not have to be a Politician. And then expect the answer to be “NO!”

      They can have all the illegal aliens too that are sucking off the system.

  9. kfdavis says:

    Unfortunately obama will deny all of the petitions.

  10. Oldtymepatriot says:

    The White House has nothing to do with “granting” secessions, it is up to the individual state legislatures to pass legislation disolving their membership in the union. Petition your state officials.

  11. Phil Wolbert says:

    How many of you have a “one nation, under God” shirt, bumper sticker, flag or whatever? Just curious.

  12. TheSull says:

    I’m a Texan by choice, I’ve been here for more than three decades. Obama won’t be able to tell us where we can drill. We will have to beef up security to keep out the blue state ingrates, because our economy will go through the roof.

  13. relayman says:

    As a Texan, I was proud to sign the petition. I would have liked to have seen as a basis for the petition on secession and further petitions reference to Article IV, Section 4 of the Constitution:
    “The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; ….”
    This is solid ground for secession.

  14. dan creech says:

    Texas has the option to leave or become seven states.

  15. Ed Scott says:

    This secession thing is nothing new and usually goes away after a few weeks. After each Presedential election, the secession petitions circulate each time, Sometimes, from a blue state when a Republican win the White House. The Governments response is usually to answer no, and that is pretty much the end of it every four years.
