    Texas, for sure. These people from Austin's argument are stupid; if Obama gets more Supreme Court justices, the the left can bend the constitution in whatever way they want.

    As opposed to the current Right leaning court bending it anyway they want? Corporations are people - Yeah that stretched the ole Constitution some.

    I barely believe it will happen but if the White House has the petition section "We the people," leave the decision to the state through votes.

    @IraqWarVeteran Well, good luck with that. I personally don't think you guys who are signing this petition have thought of the consequences for your own state if you do this but it's your right to do things in haste out of hate if you choose to.

    As someone who used to live in Texas, Austin basically a communist compound surrounded by conservatives (and crazy neocons/Xitian fundies in Houston). If Texas secedes, it'll probably end up getting nuked. So I would call all of that win-win-win.

    I believe I distinctly hear a thumbsucking, whining, snivelling cry of...
    "We couldn't get our crackpot, cowboy governor elected President, so we want to break away and form our own "alternative universe" wild west government.

    even though hes a republican i agree with Perry. i don't understand why a state would want to secede from the greatest nation in the world,and Austin would be doing the right thing by staying with the US.i think all it is is a bunch of the republicans in Texas are mad just because Romney didn't get voted in and the whole threatening of secession is just their way of venting their dislike for our president.i dont see it really happening but if it does like i said in another post stop all welfare disability and medicare for texas because they want to become a country of its own so let them figure out how to do their own medicare and disability

    When "greatest nation in the world," ceases to be so, then it's time to do something about it. I can understand whole heartedly why some are asking for secession. The rumblings of a 2nd civil war have been going on since Clinton was elected. Now it is even more so. But this time it won’t be the North against the South it will be the left against the right, liberals against conservatives and Patriots against socialists.

    Texas has the 15th largest economy in the world. I think they'll do just fine when they are able to patrol and close their own borders with no interference from DC and pass new laws regarding illegals, welfare and education. Remember the Alamo !

    @ST_Louie_Sue Please do not be so naive to associate patriotism with loyalty to the right. Liberals that fight for their FREEDOM are just as patriotic as Conservatives fighting for theirs.

    @ST_Louie_Sue just to refresh your memory clinton did more for this country in 8 years than regan and bush did in 16.second if you dont think america is the greatest nation on earth why dont you move to the mid east im sure you would love it there.even though texas has the 15th largest economy in the states doesnt mean they will do fine because when if it becomes a nation of its own it will have to deal with the same issues and many more.instead of shipping something from alabama to texas it will be considered importing and would cost a lot more,plus are they going to elect a king or president im sure it would be a king and gw would have the throne which would mean texas would crumble like a cracker with him in charge he already about bankrupted the US what do you think he would do to texas.at least people of austin has enough sense to stay with the US because they know if texas does secede it wont be long until mexico will take texas back

    neither should be an option. I like visiting Austin, but live there?? don't make me laugh. and the rest of Texas. I think not.

    I think it would be hilarious if Texas suceeded because it didn't like how liberal the united states was.....what would they think in a few years when the demographics of texas tip into the Blue state column.....or if they had succeeded to be more conservative how funny would it be when they became majority liberal?????? Which they soon will.

    Once TX leaves our Union they can elect Glenn Beck as their president of dumbf*ckistan and Rush can be their czar of food & health.

    I wish big mouth TX would secede but please when they do dynamite the edges and let it float to the Gulf of Mexico. That way I get beach front property! Who else but TX would have a town named Dumas, TX... yeap, many of them are Dumasses.... ROFL

    I don't think that the talk about secession is about obama, it is more about the cluster flub we call goverment. These people have repeatedly screwed the country over for the last 50+ years and people are striking out the only way they can. There will be more disgruntled actions to come?

    @John_Matrix Ahh, I see the point. Normally I try Not to generalize. However for Texas I'll make a special exceptions. Based on my personal experience this is the worst state to be in when it comes to race. The Step-father was in the military and we were stationed in Fort Hood. This was the first time I was ever called the "N Word" My friend told me he could no longer play with me because his father told him he was not allowed to play with the "N"children. This was the first but NOT LAST bad experience I had in Texas.

    @Waynestew

    Shitty excuse. You're still resorting to the same type racism as the handful of idiots that you had to deal with. You need to step back and assess the situation and realize that simply because a few bad experiences occurred to you in Texas is hardly sufficient to condemn everyone in the whole state. The worlds full of assholes, trick is to try not to be one them, your original statement paints you as one.

    @John_Matrix All I make no excuses about what I said. I know it is a broad generalization. And I know it is a little asshole-ish. Is that a word? LOL! Catch me on another day might be a lot more humble. Today is NOT that day!! Are you from Texas?

    No, but I know quite a few people from there. Some are the dumbest motherfuckers I've had the displeasure of knowing and some are good guys. I've been to the East coast and the west coast and find people I like and hate there and everywhere in between.

    Screw Austin ... but Texas Secede from the Union??? Never!!!! the parasidic entitlement people (who voted in Obamazz) would starve to Death. Texas is the biggest productive state in the union (a.k.a. HOST). They have WORKING PEOPLE just ripe and waiting to be drained of their money through taxation without representation. Heck, the north will have to come in AGAIN. Obamazz's drug addict lazy entitlement people cannot live without THAT MONEY!!! What are they Freakin' thinking?!?!
