The idea that any state can be successful without the help of the United States federal government is ludicrous. Every state relies on federal funding for a myriad of things like: education, infrastructure maintenance, healthcare, prison system funding, government assistance programs (Medicaid), low-income housing, disaster relief organizations, etc. By signing your name, you are making a statement to the policymakers of Texas, informing them that you are not going to allow them to jeopardize our state's future by permitting people blinded by their own delusions to rally for a secession from the United States. Now is not the time for Americans to allow ourselves to be divided. It is time for the country to come together and learn that, together, we can accomplish many more things than we ever could on our own. Let's stand together and let our voices be heard. We are ONE nation...and it is time for us to begin acting like it.

      All Of us do not agree with separation after what the Civil War cost us the first time. Which I truly believe would be a considered issue.

      I lived in Texas my whole life and only recently moved to Virginia 2 months ago. I still love Texas and consider it my home state. But this nonsense about trying to secede AGAIN (I believe this was brought to the table once before and failed) is just ridiculous! Can we please move away from childish notions like this and move forward?

      the idea of seceding is stupid. We cannot survive on our own. We need the federal government no matter how much we hate to admit it.

      It's time for people to grow up and face reality. To people who want to secede: please read the Texas Constitution. There is no provision for secession in the Texas Constitution.

      People supporting secession cannot see beyond their noses. They are just throwing a "hissy fit" because the election didn't go the way they wanted.
