1- The state of Texas has had nothing to do with this petition, it is merely individuals signing a petition they support. We could make a petition
asking to never pay taxes again and get millions of signatures pretty sure nothing would happen.
2- A good amount of the signatures are from people outside of Texas. As has been pointed out many of these people outside of the state could be
signing this because they don't like Texas.
3- As it stands at the point of this post, there are roughly 60,000 signatures, even if they were all Texans that is a small percentage of the total
4- This is not uncommon after presidential elections, do some research it happens every four years. Not to mention there has always been an active
movement in Texas seeking secession, this is nothing new.
5- There has been polling done, the majority of Texans do not wish to leave the union.
In my opinion there are probably a couple groups of people involved in this most recent succession movement. The first group is that of die hards who
have always felt this way, and this election is merely a platform to get their message out to more people. The second group of people who is actually
the only reason we are talking about this, are those jumping on the bandwagon because its empowering and makes them feel like they are actually
putting pressure on someone. This second group of people will disappear rather quickly, they just are not willing to see this through to conclusion.
The last group of people are, the power brokers in these states, the ones that can actually make stuff like this a reality. I hate to break to it
everyone getting off thinking about this possibly happening, but the elite are and will continue to benefit from the way our government works. They
have no reason to want to break away from the current profit system. I have seen people breaking down the economies of their states and explaining how
they could make it on their own. While this may be true one huge assumption is being made, the people running those big businesses would ever think of
leaving the protection of the United States government. While the average citizen is struggling right now, big business and banksters have no problem
with the way our current government is functioning. While you have attention whores like Donald Trump parading around like hes so upset, the majority
of power brokers in the same class as him are silently reaping in the benefits of crony capitalism/ corporatism.
