Earlier this week a petition was started to allow Texas to secede from the United States. That petition has already received over 100,000 signatures.
Now it seems Austin has started a petition to secede from Texas and remain part of the United States.
Here is what the petition says:
Austin Texas continues to suffer difficulties stemming from the lack of civil, religious, and political freedoms imposed upon the city by less liberally minded Texans. It is entirely feasible for Austin to operate as its own state, within the United States, in the event that Texas is successful in the current bid to secede. It is important for Austin to remain in the union as 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.
We would also like to annex Dublin Texas, Lockhart Texas, & Shiner Texas.
At a little over 7,000 signatures this petition on We The People seems to be less popular than the Texas secession petition.
