Texas Secession to be Reviewed by White House

This link is misleading. It's intent is to give fodder for Obama's Presidential campaign. If it is using accurate numbers, it does not mean that these states are not paying more taxes to the fed than what they get back. It supposedly depicts states where more residents pay less or no tax. This could be feasible given that most of the states on that chart are states on our southern rim where more illegal immigrants flood in and many are off the radar or making incomes too low to pay taxes. Regardless Texas still pays more federal tax than it receives back.

The idea of Texas seceding from the Union is a long time joke, but a secession petition on WhiteHouse.gov 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.
