    And then I could sneak back in illegally with a new name and they will give me everything I want on a silver platter.

    My dad was wounded 3 times in WW2. I lost 2 uncles at Omaha Beach. I never met them. They fought and died for all the states. I think if they were around today they would be pretty upset over this.

    Maybe somebody should start another petition to strip citizenship away from those seeking to strip citizenship away from the secessionists, because it infringes their First Amendment rights of free speech and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

    Apparently there's some dissent in the ranks in Texas: From the govt. web site:
    we petition the obama administration to:
    Peacefully grant the city of Austin Texas to withdraw from the state of Texas & remain part of the United States.

    Austin Texas continues to suffer difficulties stemming from the lack of civil, religious, and political freedoms imposed upon the city by less liberally minded Texans. It is entirely feasible for Austin to operate as its own state, within the United States, in the event that Texas is successful in the current bid to secede. It is important for Austin to remain in the union as to do so would protect it's citizens' standard of living and re-secure their rights and liberties in accordance with the original ideas and beliefs of our founding fathers.

    We would also like to annex Dublin Texas, Lockhart Texas, & Shiner Texas. https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/pe...tate-texas-remain-part-united-states/TDD212hQ

    Pay attention the the bold red part:

    The Declaration of Independence: A Transcription

    IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.

    The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

    When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.--Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

    Any questions as to what we should be doing?
