Wait what? There are millions of people in Texas -- how could 25,000 people decide such a momentous thing?

A little history lesson from Dr. Ron Paul about seccession, its benefits, its history as a basic American right, the myth created by the Civil War. Take a look and discuss.

I don't know jack about WND but the "birther" issue is real enough.
Uh, no, it's not. Obama has proven beyond all reasonable doubt that he was born in Hawaii and therefore eligible for the office he holds. There is no ifs and's or butts about it. It's been settled.
WND is a site that caters to the far right, the WAY far right. They are of course protected under the same 1st Amendment that same far right would remove from others so they have the freedom to say whatever they like.
Personally I really wish that those states would leave the union. I would wish them a fond farewell and work like hell to make sure that the United States and it's allies in the world never traded with them for anything. I would want every single tax dollar they ever spent returned to pay help pay off the debt. I would want all US Government owned items immediately removed. and I would also like to see that no person from those places were ever allowed on US soil again.
USA, love it or leave it as the phrase goes.

Now correct me if I am wrong, but doesn't collecting enough signatures on a petition force the government to at least answer to the petition even if the answer is no freaking way.
And wouldn't a successful petition also make it mandatory for the state involved to respond as well, and maybe even have to bring it to the floor of the states congress for consideration even if they also say no.

Couldn't have said it better myself. Why is this so difficult for people to understand?
