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.
