Seceding FROM Texas: The Backlash to Rightwing Secession Grows

 

 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.

Two Arrested at 2nd Annual Chalk the Police National Day of Action in Austin

Austin, TX 10/1/12 Two arrests follow a productive day of expressing dissent against many issues including homelessness, disparity of wealth, police brutality and corruption to name a few. Austin occupiers and chalkupiers, gathered to exercise their 1st amendment rights but were met by APD officers who believed it was their right to squelch dissent. It has been determined by several federal courts that chalk is a legitimate way to express grievances to the government and is protected free speech.

We must not remain silent! We have the right to chalk and the right to hold our local police accountable for their actions.
