Texas Secession to be Reviewed by White House

would like to state at this time that I unequivocally denounce any and all violent action against the government of the United States of America. That does not mean I do not support Texas's right or any State's right to decide for themselves their own course of action in these troubling times. However, secession is not a subject that should be taken lightly, this is serious business. Just the thought of secession can and will conjure up images of freedom and liberty from the imperial Federal government, it will also conjure up images of death, destruction and war. None of this can be taken or entered into lightly.

If the majority of the citizens of a state vote to secede, then the US should release them. The US should stop collecting taxes from that state and they should begin the separation process. Any state that withdraws would still be an ally and, I would hope, there could and should be a friendly relationship going forward. But I fear that right and left have become too polarized to continue co-existence, so maybe we should be 2 countries now instead of one.

It should be understood that should any state truly seek secession, I urge any and all citizens of that state and its elected leaders to seek a peaceful solution to the idea or movement to secede from these United States of America. That what ever solution is determined to be the states best course of action that that state make the well being of its citizens its foremost priority.

Again I want to renounce any and all calls for violent action against the the government of the United States of America.

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.
