72,000 Secession has traction

It was only a matter of time, as King George continued his taxation of the Colonies without consulting the thoughts of the Colonist, the forbidden expansion beyond the Alleghenies Mountains, excessive control of import/exports of private business,  tolerance of one religion over the rest of the population as their religions were suppressed, the confiscation of private property without due process.  So much of what happened then is happening now to America.  Is is any wonder that the Secession movement has bloomed so much in just one week?  This is not a trivial happenstance, it is the beginning of something larger to take place. 


The leader of the secession movement in Texas says that President Barack Obama’s reelection was a “catalyzing moment” for his organization’s efforts to quit the United States.
“I am completely aware that Election Day was a catalyzing moment, but I do not believe that the underpinnings of this are solely about Barack Obama,” Texas Nationalist Movement President Daniel Miller told POLITICO. “This cake has been baking for a long time — it’s the Obama administration that put the candles on the cake and lit it for us.”

He added: “This is not a reaction to a person but to policy and what we see as a federal government that is so disconnected from its constituents and absolute no regard for what its purpose was.”
A petition for Texas secession has garnered more than 72,500 signatures as of Tuesday afternoon — the most of any of the slew of other states petitioning the White House for secession. (Only 25,000 are needed to garner a White House response.)

   While I and so many prefer the pen to the sword in defending our Constitutional rights, it is becoming more apparent that the pen lacks any respect from Washington DC.  I just read that Obama is heading over to Russia in the near future to visit Putin, and I trust since Obama has that 'flexibility' now, more of our National Security will be given away at various levels.  
    Is there any wonder dear reader, why the Secession movement has gained so much traction?
