States Seceding? Will They Succeed?!
In recent events with President Obama winning his re-election, citizens from of our states were not too happy about his victory. According to the Chicago Tribune, Texas, Louisiana, Florida, North Carolina, Alabama, Georgia and Tennessee have all filed petitions and qualify for a response.
“The Texas petition says the United States is suffering from economic troubles stemming from the federal government’s failure to reform spending. It also complains of alleged rights abuses committed by agencies like the Transportation Security Administration.
“Given that the state of Texas maintains a balanced budget and is the 15th largest economy in the world, it is practically feasible for Texas to withdraw from the union,” it said.”
Texas has done it before. Who says that they won’t be successful if they give it another go? Regardless of possibilities we should learn from our history and remember should the states be successful, there probably isn’t a light at the end of the tunnel they’re looking for. This could, and most likely is a jab at the White House to communicate, “The hope and change discussed in a campaign four years ago needs to come in effect now. Or else.”
