H/T reader Mimik: Austin is my hometown, and it’s a refreshing dot of reasonable blue in a sea of angry red. Since a handful of residents of the Great state of Texas have petitioned to secede — instead of having a black President it seems — some Austinites have created another petition noting “we’re not with those idiots.” Sign it here.
We petition the obama administration to: Peacefully grant the city of Austin Texas to withdraw from the state of Texas & remain part of the United States.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.
I’d also like to include enough of the hill country to get most of Lake Travis and the entire Enchanted Rock State Natural Area along with a big chunk of the new 85 MPH Austin to San Antonio turnpike.
