The petition for Texas to go off and become its own country already has more than 60,000 signatures. Impressive. But in a twist, the capital city of Austin has filed a petition to secede from Texas and remain part of the Union should that happen. This is officially getting out of hand. The petition states it is "entirely feasible for Austin to operate as its own state," and adds that remaining in the Union "would protect [its] citizens' standard of living."

Apparently Austin doesn't feel the same way as the rest of the state?
The American political scene is sooo funny to watch as almost everything said is designed to produce an emotional response rather than thoughtful conclusions. Sad, but funny at the same time.
One day perhaps we'll learn to think for ourselves, but until that time you're going to see this kind of thing.
It is funny but not surprising. Austin and Dallas are very blue counties. Remember, Dallas county is the only county in the nation where whites are in the minority. Latinos are the largest group according to the last 2 censuses
Did anybody ever stop and think how a state could act like its own country within the infrastructure of the United States of America? Would airliners have to get clearance to fly over the country of New Texas? Would intestate trucking and trains have to pay a fee just to cross the border into New Texas. I could go on and on ad absurd um, but what's the sense!.

There are groups in several states that are actively trying to secede from the US. If that were to happen, how do you think it would play out? Would we be able to choose which 'country' we belonged to? ...

There is a new book out that defends the South from wanting to secede and calling Lincoln a dictator for the way he handled it. Do you agree?
