Gov. Perry believes in the greatness of our Union and nothing should be done to change it. But he also shares the frustrations many Americans have with our federal government.
Catherine Frazier, press secretary for Texas Governor Rick Perry • Pouring a bit of heavily-couched water on the burgeoning secessionist movement within the state of Texas. In fact, it isn’t even limited to the Lone Star State — since the reelection of President Obama, secession petitions have been filed by (presumably) disgruntled voters in 30 states. The Texas portion of this discontent has furnished a petition with well over 25,000 signatures, the amount at which the Obama administration must review the list and issue a reply. Our guess? No go. Perry coming out against this movement is instructive, perhaps, in how seriously he now takes the rhetoric — back in May of 2009, Perry opted to stoke such sentiments, while speaking at a Tea Party rally in Austin. source

  9. likeatumbleweed said: As 25,000 signatures is less than 1% of the population of Texas, I think it’s safe to assume this is a fringe (yet vocal) minority. That being said, I will gladly move away in a heartbeat if secession became a reality.
