    citizens in Texas, Louisiana, NC, etc., who signed these petitions?

    Have the people of Louisiana asked to secede?  No.  The Tea Party minority has.  Even if this were a serious movement, would we let the people of New Orleans be taken out of the Union, no doubt against their will,  by the Tea Party?

    Texas will be blue in a few years, between the white progressives who live there, the growing Latino population, and the Native American and black vote.  If the secession thing were serious (which it is only as an measure of alienation among the far right), agreeing to it would be a complete abandoning of those Texans who are in every sense our people.
