  1. Default Texas & Louisiana do not want to be part of the US


    http://constitutionschool.com/2012/1...rom-the-union/

    ďThe US continues to suffer economic difficulties stemming from the federal governmentís neglect to reform domestic and foreign spending. The citizens of the US suffer from blatant abuses of their rights such as the NDAA, the TSA, etc. Given that the state of Texas maintains a balanced budget and is the 15th largest economy in the world, it is practically feasible for Texas to withdraw from the union, and to do so would protect itís citizensí standard of living and re-secure their rights and liberties in accordance with the original ideas and beliefs of our founding fathers which are no longer being reflected by the federal government.Ē

    Think it'll happen?

    An official response isn't the same thing as 'Oh yes, we're going to let you become an independent state' if they're trying to bank on that. On that note though, is Texas seriously the 15th largest economy in the world?

    Do let's get carried away.

    5000 signatures on an online petition mean nothing.
    Put it to a referendum, then we'll see.

    They do this a lot, why is anyone surprised?

    Just google "Texas threatening to secede"

    Seriously. Boy cries wolf.

    Oh and this too.

    Gotta love fear mongering. Believe me, there won't be a civil war, and Tejas isn't going anywhere.

    Louisiana what? Considering they're looking to get around 400 million in additional funding from the federal government this year this is just hilarious. They're probably just pissed they're not getting more.

    I don't have any concrete evidence to support the following statement and I am aware of the irony given the handling of Katrina but...

    Good luck with that next hurricane new-country Louisiana.

    At least if Texas leaves and Puerto Rico joins, you don't have to change your flag.

    Let Texas secede. I'm sure Mexico would love to take them back in.

    Just like the boy who cried wolf, the wolf didn't eventually come though.
     

  12. Default Re: Texas & Louisiana Does not want to be part of the US


    What? The wolf did come eventually. That was the point of the story -- the wolf eventually came, but at that point the villagers didn't give a pomegranate about the boy anymore.

    No thanks, you can keep those who already ditched us. Besides, I don't think they would like our current non-religious goverment.
     

  14. Default Re: Texas & Louisiana Does not want to be part of the US


    Anyone else that's not from the USA find it completely ridiculous when people say things like this? Either way, if they want to live in their own little bubble I'd say let them.

    I find it hilarious you people are taking this seriously.

    This belongs in Shenanigans, not Current Events.

    It's a load of bullpomegranate.
     

  18. Default Re: Texas & Louisiana Does not want to be part of the US


    Amen to that. Louisiana's aren't dumb enough to try to stand on their own. There's too much here supported by the U.S. that they can't live without, like the levees.

    Besides, any whackjob pimento can create a petition on that site. Unless it actually came from the state government of either state it's meaningless twaddle and anyone assuming it bears any relation to the actual thoughts and feelings of the states it claims to represent with near negligible votes is an idiot.

    If you look at "recent petitions" virtually every state has one now; https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petitions

    Texas v. White makes secession incredibly hard (if not illegal; not entirely sure which, 19th century opinions are excessively verbose) anyways. Not to mention surveys show that most people don't want to leave the Union anyways.

    Why would a seceded state have to follow laws written by a country they no longer belong to?

    Texas has been threatening this for so long it's hard to take them seriously; if any secession occurs it will HAVE to be at least 10 states, in any case. The problem is, most states are already bankrupt and need federal money just to function; even if they seceded, if a few states that aren't in the red financially don't secede as well, they will have zero money and they will quickly deteriorate into third world status.
