Tinsldr2, "By these, the Union was solemnly declared to "be perpetual." Meaning that they would be joined in a common cause perpetually and not just when threatened. By those same Articles of Confederation, "Article II. Each state retains its sovereignty, freedom, and independence, and every Power, Jurisdiction, and right, which is not by this confederation expressly delegated to the United States, in Congress assembled." It should also be noted that Texas did not join the United States under the Articles of Confederation.

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.
