RE: 20 States Petition to Secede from Government
The petition of Texas is growing at an astonishing rate. They are already at 84k+ signers.

RE: 20 States Petition to Secede from Government
There isn't going to be a civil war...people are just expressing their discontent with how our politicians are handling (or not handling) things. The people are speaking out and if enough people do so, perhaps someone will listen and start looking out for the good of their constituents (novel concept) and not just what benefits them.

People are scared and pissed and they are saying so.

People in Texas are egotistical blowhards that think the sun rises and sets just for them, and we should all be grateful they allow it.

I hate Texans.

They are doing this because Obama won. That is it. They have been told by Fox News that the world would end if Fox News won again, and guess what, he won!!! That is all this is. They are idiots, who don't even realize they are sheep voting against their own best interest, and now throwing a tantrum against their best interest.

Better than down the drain with the trickle-down, no-taxes, morally retarded.

I've known some very nice Texans.

It wouldn't matter who won, no one is going to be able to right things in one term.

The partisan stand offs need to cease so that congress can actually get something done that will help this country.

Time for the pissing contests to be done with.

And please look at the fact that some of the states with these petitions were won by Obama.

Not nice to stereotype a whole state either. There are nice people in all the states just like there are assholes and ignorant jerks in all the states.

Ummm... no.

It would sustain them for quite sometime. Most of the US oil and natural gas is in Texas, the Gulf, and Alaska.
At current consumption rates theres only around 20 years worth..that's if they keep it to themselves and refine it themselves. If they sell it to other countries they'll burn through it even faster, which would be needed to generate currency.

That's considering the consumption of the ENTIRE US... instead, it would only be 4 or five.
