Newscast Media HOUSTON, TexasA wave of dissatisfaction is sweeping the nation as voters in over 20 states are convinced that there was foul-play in the past 2012 presidential election, and have now filed petitions for their states to secede and form independent countries. Texas is no exception and is leading with more than enough signatures for the White House to consider the petition.


The Alternative Media led the way in pointing out inconsistencies (pop-up) that had occurred in the past election, that the mainstream media was unwilling to talk about. An awakening was created that went viral, and now all 50 states have filed petitions to secede. In essence the people have rejected Obama and his administration. *Click here to see live updates of all 50 petitions. (pop-up)


Whether or not the petitions will achieve their goals is not the issue for now, what is important is that this whole movement has caught not only the attention of Texas Governor Rick Perry, but also of the White House. The governor is now in a tight situation, since he says, nothing should be done, but in the same breath he says he shares the frustration of many Americans.


Currently, Texas is the 15th largest economy in the world, with a balanced budget and a surplus in a rainy day fund.  The state opposes the policies of the Obama administration and feels the beliefs of the founding fathers are not being reflected by this government. Of the 25,000 signatures needed, Texas by far leads all other states and has over 100,000 signatures.

Rick Perry himself publicly rejected Obamacare this past summer and said Texas will not be implenting it. "I stand proudly with the growing chorus of governors who reject the Obamacare power grab," Perry said. "I will not be party to socializing healthcare and bankrupting my state in direct contradiction to our Constitution and our founding principles of limited government," he added.


In a statement to the Dallas Morning News, Gov. Rick Perry said about the petition:

"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. Now more than ever our country needs strong leadership from states like Texas, that are making tough decisions to live within their means, keep taxes low and provide opportunities to job creators so their citizens can provide for their families and prosper. We cannot allow Washington’s tax and spend, one-size-fits-all mindset to jeopardize our children’s future, undermine our personal liberties and drive our nation down a dangerous path to greater dependence of government."


Texans also worry that Obama might try to take their guns away, and since the economy is stalling in other parts of the US, while Texas experiences growth, and may not have anything to defend themselves with as shown in this FOX video:




The White House is yet to address the petition issue, but it is obvious Americans are polarized and perhaps feel jaded, therefore they have resorted to such measures.
