I hope the official response is one of those tumblr gold stars that says YOU TRIED.
It's fun to laugh at these nuts...but...damn...Is anyone else just a wee bit concerned at how openly delusional and paranoid so many of your fellow citizens seem to be? It's pretty damned disturbing even from a "fear for public safety" level.
Let's enter the bizarro world libertarian fantasy for a second here

The Empire that we have built around the world is just one of the symptoms of this corruption.
Since 2003, Texas has routinely received more in Federal funds than it has paid in Federal taxes by an annual estimate of around $60 billion. The state is projected to spend about $80 billion over the next two years in General Revenue funds. These are separate figures, but think of it this way: Texans are profiting $60 billion in Federal funds, next year. That’s about 75% of the state’s budget. Who is going to pay the tab for the shortfall? Texans will actually have *higher* taxes if they secede.
- Do you like your Border Patrol keeping all those pesky, hard-working Mexicans out? Yeah, that’s a Federal agency. Goodbye, border protection.

when we gave states the right to determine who is and is not a citizen, the result was millions of people were treated as property.
2. Real money is backed by, and redeemable on demand, in precious metals. The nice thing about real money is that it survives and holds its value over time, the decades between youth and retirement, for example.
Money that loses more than half its value in a decade isn't very useful when you want to eventually retire, is it?
The value of gold is no more or less fiat than the value of paper.
Funny how the calls for secession seem to coming loudest from those who, months before, were quickest to inform us that theirs is the Party of Lincoln.
Holy crap they already have made and distributed bumper stickers in South Carolina.
The petitions have no legal force and are semi-anonymous. Nevertheless, Erick Erickson of RedState thought it worth the effort to read them out of the conservative movement. Texas governor Rick Perry apparently concurs.
These developments are little more than linkbait for liberal bloggers. No state is going to secede. And I doubt that many of the petitioners are serious about wanting to do so.
In Spain, by contrast, a real debate about secession is now in progress. An informative post by Joshua Tucker on The Monkey Cage observes that public opinion in Catalonia has grown increasingly favorable to secession in recent years, culminating in a pro-secession demonstration by over 1.5 million people this past September 11 (Catalonia’s national holiday). It’s not clear that all the participants really want to secede: many may favor a deal that would afford Catalonia more political and economic sovereignty. But the failure of negotiations for a so-called “fiscal pact” has encouraged nationalist sentiments.
