I've been following some of the news stories about Texas succession, and this has me wondering if I'm situated in a state that will soon be it's own country... again.... or if this is just a lot of hype. Of course, last time I checked, the secession petition was over 25,000, so maybe there's a possibility. Or not.
Here's the petition, currently at 26,526.
(And I wonder if writing about this is going to put me on some watch list? (I'm probably on a watch list by the Global Vasectomy Society...)
I'm not saying to sign this, but rather consider the consequences: Texas is a state with a fairly good economy, with plenty places that I've visited that seem to be all but recession proof. Houses are affordable, and the jobs seem plentiful in Houston. There wouldn't be a military, but then again, everyone I know on my street (heck, almost everyone I know in Texas) is armed to the teeth already, so wonder if something like this would work? I expect the MSM will bury this with some stupid celebrity news stories, but what if it actually took off?
