    A group called the Texas Nationalist Movement fanned out to 31 cities across Texas this weekend trying to gather the 75,000 signatures they say they need to get the question of the state's secession from the United States on the primary ballot next spring

    "What we are seeing, over and over, is this complete disconnect between the people of Texas, what they want, and what is going on in Washington, D.C.," TNM President Daniel Miller told Reuters.

    Other 49 States Considering Letting Texas Secede

    “Don’t get me wrong,” one Ohio state representative told us, “we want all fifty states in the union, and we want them all thriving. But Texas sure does take a lot of Federal tax money for a state that supposedly hates. I wonder where they think those huge defense spending contracts would go once they weren’t part of this country anymore,” the Republican asked rhetorically adding, “I mean, I’m a conservative Republican and even I understand that the Civil War settled this shit for a reason, but maybe Texas needs to learn their lesson the hard way.”

    One Democrat from Oregon laughed as she asked reporters, “Do they really think they can negotiate international trade deals? Who will be their ambassador to the rest of the world, Rick Perry? The guy who can’t even remember the three government agencies he hates so much he wants them shut down? Will Governor Abbot be the one negotiating Texas’ own nuclear accord with Iran? Boy would I love to be a fly in the room for that,” she said with laughter erupting from every corner of her mouth.

    “Oh no,” a Democratic State Senator from Connecticut feigned anxiety, “you mean we’d never have to explain to our friends in other countries that Texas is just particularly stupid the next time a factory blows up and they all proudly proclaim themselves regulation-free,” he asked rhetorically. “You mean to tell me that if we let them walk away we’re no longer going to have to tell people that they shouldn’t judge us by what our idiot cousins in the Lonestar State are losing their shit about,” he added sarcastically.
