Don't forget that Texas was a sovereign country before it joined the United States. Why is a joke if the would wish to return to being a sovereign nation? No this is not a joke. Why should we have to foot the bill for a people that hates us? Why should we be cheated and lied to by the very government that claims that we are all one people when you all know that is clearly not the case?

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.
