Withdraw formally from membership in the USA Law and Government.
Derived from the Latin term secessio, secession is the act of withdrawing from an organization, union, or especially a political entity.
The title of a legal pleading that initiates a legal case. An initial pleading in a lawsuit that seeks non-monetary or “equitable” relief, such as a request for a writ of mandamus or habeas corpus, is called a petition.
A petition for Texas law to secede from the union, submitted to the White House, reached the 25,000 signatures within 30 days needed to recieve comment from the Obama administration today.
Peacefully grant the State of Texas to withdraw from the United States of America and create its own NEW government.
The US continues to suffer economic difficulties stemming from the federal government’s neglect to reform domestic and foreign spending. The citizens of the US suffer from blatant abuses of their rights such as the NDAA, the TSA, etc. 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, and to do so would protect it’s citizens’ standard of living and re-secure their rights and liberties in accordance with the original ideas and beliefs of our founding fathers which are no longer being reflected by the federal government.
Anyone can go online and create any petition they want. It doesn’t mean that it will get looked at or even acknowledged.
1866 proclamation signed by then-President Andrew Johnson clearly spelled out that NO state had the right to leave the union:
“…It is the manifest determination of the American people that no State, of its own will, has a right or power to go out of or separate itself from, or be separated from the American Union; and that, therefore, each State ought to remain and constitute an integral part of the United States…”
So is Texas an exclusion? Can Texas Secede
Does the Preamble of the Declaration of Independence not count towards anything ( The preamble to the Declaration of Independence lists principles that were already known as being “self-evident” by the majority of Englishmen of the 18th Century. It continues to state that when such a situation arises in government (as that being experienced by the British governing of the 13 colonies), it is not only their desire, but it is their RIGHT and their DUTY to throw off such a Government and to provide the foundation for a NEW government to ensure their future security. )
So does any state have the right to secede?
What’s the process?
Any secession lawyers out there that would like to enlighten us on this situation???
