If I don't live in Texas, can I still sign their petition to secede?

....and when do we send the Oklahoma National Guard down there to patrol the red river border?

1. Please stop with the B.S. There are MANY Texans here on DU and secession talk is offiensive.


In 2008 and 2012 Obama won the majority of our largest cities/counties here in Texas: Austin/Travis, Dallas/Dallas, Houston/Harris, El Paso, San Antonio, etc.

Texas is really more PURPLE now than it is red.

6. Why not start a counter-petition to stay in the Union? As always, loudmouths get attention.

Texan will lose big-time if idiots take the state out of the Union. I am guessing that the OP is looking at the situation from the standpoint of taxes, but is a little off. Texas is neutral on taxes, it is neither a Donor or Beggar state. But the other states that want to secede are big beggar states that will be destroyed on their own or as a collection of red states.

10. I agree...


.... don't dump on the minority (for now) in Texas. I'm a Texas DU member who rejoiced in the election results. We're trying our best to bring a very red state along.

2. Get real, Obama won every large metro.

Texas will be blue by 2020 and it will be lights-out for the 'pubs.

Are you in a blue state?

4. Now, now...

A lot of TX is blue. And they're fighting like hell.

It's an inspiration, really.
