This is an updated story from earlier in The Huff Post and is dated today Aug 01, 2015. I had earlier this morning found this story in an AOL link, but it has now disappeared.
Texas Nationalist Movement has a petition for Texas secession an now qualifies for a response from the White House. www.huffingtonpost.com...< br /> The The Texas petition reads:
"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 it's (sic) citizens' 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."

Most U.S. presidents were from the state of Texas! Maybe Texas should take a lot of the blame for the loss of rights and liberties of U.S. citizens. Their native son George W. had a major role in taking rights and liberties away by instituting the Patriot Act!

Austin is a very diverse culture, but there was a lot of "weird" way before the Californians started moving here. I mean, come on- Hippie Hollow, Eyeore's annual birthday party, the famous homeless cross dresser Leslie - just name a few. These aren't examples of conservative virtues.
