I think you missed the peacefully part.

The only ones who would start the war would be the choom gang clan leader and his minions. It would not be us who seek to peacefully remove ourselves form a out of control government who could not care less about you.

And when the US says NO! You cant leave?

The Texans leave. The question is then, which side starts the violence?

What violence do you anticipate Texas having to commit to leave, if all the US does is say No! You can't leave?

Not that I disagree with the sentiment, but they can do just what they did in 1861 - refuse to vacate their military bases and other federal establishments, they could even blockade your ports. This was how they goaded the Confederacy into firing on Fort Sumpter and supposedly "starting the war" (hint: the victors get to write the history books).

But really, You big guys talk of secession like it is serious

Are you really prepared to kill COPS, FBI and ATF agents when you form a militia to march on Ft Hood?

Did not Washington, Jefferson, Knox, Greene, Morgan or any of the founders face the same dilemmas?

Instead of accepting tyranny did they not act and not care of what the outcome was for them.

They sacrificed all and won. Why should we be afraid to do the same?

who said anything like that? Why are you violent and bent on hurting others? Are you on drugs?

The idea of Texas seceding from the Union is a long time joke, but a secession petition on has received enough signatures to be seriously reviewed by the White House.


This isn't quite the equivalent of the Declaration of Independence, but in the digital age, you could say it's similar.
