In all fairness, EVERY state has a petition like this now, and I think several are now over 25K.

Wouldn't matter. The drug cartels would have already moved in a taken over Texas. The ones who sign this petition seem to be under the impression that the cartels either don't exist, or that they can easily be overpowered with the shotgun in their closet

Rofl, this is hilarious. They will NEVER get enough votes from rest of Texas to secede from USA. Who cares about 80,000 votes? If you want to leave, you're free to leave the country. No need to try to take down others with you. Go someplace where you think you will be better off. Just don't come back crying when you realize that nowhere else is like here, spoiled ignorant brats.

Obviously if a secession took place the US would withdraw most if not all of its military.

These people are petitioning to the wrong folks! If you're serious...petition to the state government to have a referendum or prop to vote on this in the next elections. That's the only way to do it.

How many foreign governments, private firms etc do you think go to their trade partners because they are situated in Texas? You think the matter of seceding from the US is something in the hands of the people? This report can only be a joke report to troll on the organizers of such idiotic petitions.

Cartels would shite on military people too. They have all these crazy guerrilla tactics which the military couldn't handle in Vienam. Not only that, but there is too much money to throw around. You really think Texans would turn down thousands of $$$ in bribes? There's a reason we haven't got involved with Mexico.

If this ever actually happens, the GOP can kiss 38 free electoral votes goodbye.

no dude Texans could accept bribes RIGHT NOW if they wanted, you think being a part of the US has prevented them from taking over Texas ? lol

Like all they need is for Texas to secede and they will suddenly be able to flood the state over?

Cartels are pretty much limited to machine guns...they couldn't handle an actual military complete with missiles and such lol

It's not a matter of people or guns. Texas has plenty of those but those only get you a militia.

A military consists of far more technology, resources, weaponry, aircraft, ships, etc

even if texas seceded, the united states military isn't going to let the cartel take over texas. it's just not going to happen. i'm in fort hood right now, trust me, they don't have anywhere to place these troops outside of texas.

we would have that tech...


I'm sure there would be a huge debate over weather or not we get nukes lol...but we would have all that tech, and enough resources to still be somewhat powerful, perhaps even a top-10 army in the world still, idk, the US has spent a lot in military and a decent chunk of that would carry over.
