120,000 Petition President For Secession of Texas From United States

Oh how wonderful is the internet? Everything is bigger in Texas, and that includes their online petition to secede from the union on the president’s We The People Site ( Basically Yahoo answers- except all of the answers come from the Whitehouse, and all of the questions need 25,000 askers).

Over 114,000 people signed on to the petition, but I’m willing to bet that at least 20% of the signers weren’t from Texas. Texas law is in the stone ages, it has one of the highest incarceration rates in the country, and 30% of all Texans are Obese. All they have is oil, and frying oil . It’s the big boot shaped blemish on the United States (I’m of course kidding. I love Texas). But anyways, that’s a lot of people.

Some signers justified that “Obama is going to kill us all” on one online forum. We’re going to be fine.  I love crazies, and I enjoy seeing that the web has given them a nice open forum away from the rest of us so we don’t have to listen to the conspiracy theories. They make me laugh. What do you think of this? Would you like your state to secede from the United States?
