Texas Secession to be Reviewed by White House

Wow - THAT's persuasive. Secession is always a legal right of the states, sure - but rebellion without sufficient cause is always doomed to failure. The right to own another human being as "product" was the focal point of their secession, and it ultimately doomed their efforts. And I'm sorry, but the moment you started arguing for the legitimacy of slavery of that time, you lost all credibility.

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.
