no lie how funny would it be to hear on the new "Earlier today Texas seceded from the U.S, and immediately war broke out against Mexico"

What annoys me the most is that people have actually tried to make this petitions work... The main reason is because Obama was re-elected president. Yea Obama got elected, get over it. Try again next four years.

Opinion: In all honesty, this sort of makes me believe Obama is the better choice. Not sure i trust people who, after losing, immediately resort to seceding.

Texan here, people who want to secede are in a HUGE minority. if there was an anti-secession petition it would have like 20 times the signatures. it's just rednecks being stupid rednecks.

You know what I see here? A rediculous ammount of job openings. And do you REALLY think that Texans in the military aren't going to go back home and BE the Texas military? Not like Texans need a military anyway. (Rednecks + guns = closed borders and reduced crime) The Texas economy is in the top 15 of the world, and the US would have to INVADE to take the Texas-owned military supplies (such as bases, missiles, etc.) Texas also has the MOST usable farmland in the country. There are multiple locally owned stations, and phone/internet companies in the state.

There we have it: Government, military, food, import/export, and communication. As well as a formidable reputation. It's possible, likely, and I hope to god it happens.

Realistically, Texas could secede tomorrow and surpass saudi arabia in less than a decade as far as wealth through resources and oil production. Easily. Its already the 15th largest economy in the world, the fed would be screwed having one of the only productive states leave to not support social welfare for the entire nation and paying all the desks created in washington

I guess they didn't know that states pay for roads and bridges and buildings not federal.
Thats why there is a tax on gas to pay for the roads you drive on. and if Texas is their own government why would they care about licenses they will just reinstate all those that the US government fired as their own.

Okay people. The following is why Texas should secede:

When I was younger, I lived in Texas. It was my parents, my older brother, and myself (and later two younger brothers). We had a maid/nanny and a gardener. The gardener was bitten by a black widow or a brown recluse (I don't remember; I was very young) while tending to the plants in our backyard. My parents said he just booked it out of the yard. The maid is irrelevant (and so is my family now that I think about) - she was just nice so I thought I'd put her in my story. Another time, I found a tarantula in my bedroom. I was a kid and there was a huge ass spider in my bedroom. I was traumatized - I'm still afraid whenever I go anywhere in the South. There are more stories involving spiders, but I don't remember most of them because I was too young (the only reason I know about them is because my family has told me). Also, there were multiple times I saw rats in the backyard while I was in the pool.

TL;DR: Fuck Texas, fuck their spiders, and fuck their rats.

I was just kidding. I thought it was obvious from the image of a duck saying "this is sewious".

I guess not.

I love how people thumb down the comments supporting the secession of Texas and its neighbors. We just know we could do it, we could stand on our own two feet and get shit done. We're the states who supply most of the fucking military for pete's sake. Of course they'd come back and defend their OWN families and country. The US is too fucking big to have everybody be happy. The rest of the country needs us, and that's why they want to try to scare us away from it.
Tyranny at its best.

Here's a fucking cute picture of a monkey hugging a parrot because I don't want to make you mad. Good night, y'all.

They act like Texas would be fucked.. 15th largest economy, their own power grid, AT&T, hot bitches, and why would they be unable to control their own airports? Texas would be the best suited state if one were to secede.
#22 to #21 - anonymous (11/17/2012) [-]
15th largest economy doesn't mean anything; no use having money if it can be taken

Sad part is... Texas is in the top 15 for the biggest economy.
User avatar #89 to #85 - ronyx (11/17/2012) [-]
Lots of small businesses in Texas, but if they are to leave then many businesses would just leave Texas.

lol so they would have to pay out of pocket for things the Federal government was paying

the federal government was using money taken from Texas though

so basically, Texas get to regulate Texas in a way that is more conducive to Texas

how is that bad at all? anyone heard of the leaky bucket in economics?

I guess you fuckers didn't learn your lesson the first time around, huh? Don't make us come down there again. You're lucky we let you rejoin the country the first time around.

We'd just go take over more of Mexico, it's not like they want anyways, why else are they all in Texas then?

What fucking century are you from? There is Texas Air/Navy/Ground National Guard. They would NOT answer to the U.S. because they are all FROM Texas. These men are just as well armed as Regular military. And the only downside is that they do not get much in the term of investments.
