Contrary to what Democrats tout, there is no mandate for Obama’s policies. A little more than half of the country voted for his reelection, and a little less than half the country wants him out! Forget the out-of-date Electoral College and check the popular vote.
There are so many red states, mostly in the South and West that are absolutely incensed he won reelection; so much so that petitions in 30 states have been filed to secede from the union. If you think it can’t happen, think again.
The state of Texas has the legal right to secede at any time it sees fit, because it was a sovereign nation BEFORE joining the union. It takes 25,000 votes to petition a state legislature for secession. Votes are to be filed over a months’ time. Texas had 80,000 votes in just one day!
Here are a few facts to reflect on.
- Has no sales or income tax
- Has had a balanced budget for many years
- Is the #1 fastest growing economy in the nation
- Is the 15th largest economy in the world
- Is a cash cow for the federal government
- Has the majority of all oil refineries
- Is the one state that corporations across America are relocating to – California and “Rust Belt” companies are leaving due to lack of balanced budgets, high business taxes, overregulation and general unfriendly business environment.
Here is the listing of states that have had citizens file petitions for secession since November 6th.
Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, NEW HAMPSHIRE, New jersey, New Mexico, New York, Nevada, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming.
If Texas were successful in seceding, the shock wave across the nation would cause a domino effect where other states would be tempted to follow suit.
If secession ever happens over the next four years then it would be the Obama administration that caused it. Here’s a history. Lesson:
In 1860 the nation was divided, much like we are now, and fought a great civil war. Abraham Lincoln saved the union at great cost of life on both sides. During the conflict Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863 and freed the slaves.
Wouldn’t it be ironic that 150 years later, the first African-American president destroyed the union by serial secessions? That’s gratitude for y’all!
