Seceding FROM Texas: The Backlash to Rightwing Secession Grows from Sat, 11/17/2012 - 6:11pm austin Press Releases rick perry rightwing secession South Texas texas West Texas Miscellaneous By Juan Batista, author, submitted by Anonymous on Sat, 11/17/2012 - 6:11pm It had to happen. I predicted it over two years ago, when Texas Governor Rick Perry flirted with secession during the Tea Party's heyday. Any serious effort towards Texas secession would lead to large parts of Texas breaking away FROM Texas. Within days of President Obama's reelection, over 600,000 Americans spontaneously petitioned for secession from the US in all fifty states. Much of Texas is trapped under the domination of the hard right. Much of the state never wanted to be part of Texas, and still doesn't. Austin, West Texas, and South Texas residents have all filed petition for secession. But it is secession FROM Texas, and to remain part of the US. Why are Mexican Americans so much more loyal than white conservative Republican Texans?
