In every revolution in the world except ours the people had nothing to lose Look at the Indian Revolution and French revolution. The people were destitute and starving. But in the US revolution the founders were Wealthy men. They were some of the most wealthy in the nation and most of them lost everything in the revolution. They pledged "our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor." Now we have people calling for secession. They Know it will never be agreed to. So will you really lose everything? See your families destroyed? Your houses and property confiscated ? Remember the National Guard fired on unarmed protestors in OH

Do you believe that Texans in the military will fire on citizens of Texans passively resisting and seeking secession?

No I think the FBI, ATF and local cops would come and arrest you.

What if 200,000 Texans refused to cooperate? Could the FBI, ATF and local cops remotely process that many arrests? That is how Passive Resistance can overcome the threat of violence. BTW, I worked with many Texas lawmen and your assertions about them are problematic at best.

A million texans just might stand against that. As would millions of other patriots.

I was being conservative with a 200,000 number. Can you imagine the ATF and the FBI trying to aresst a million people?

They wouldnt have to. Just he leaders. and those that got violent. Then the cops and guard would handle the rest/

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.
