Will Texas Voters Decide Secession at the Primary ballot Box in 2014?

These hardcore Texans are starting a petition drive, The State law says they only need 75,000 signatures to get the measure on the state ballot in the primary election. Can we see a response beyond expectations making it possible for Texans to decide? A person does not have to be for Texas Independence to sign the petition. They are just saying let the people of Texas decide. In the Texas Constitution in Article 1 section 2 states very straight forward not mincing words saying:

All political power is inherent in the people, and all free governments are founded on their authority, and instituted for their benefit. The faith of the people of Texas stands pledged to the preservation of a republican form of government, and, subject to this limitation only, they have at all times the inalienable right to alter, reform or abolish their government in such manner as they may think expedient.

This is what the petition drive is about. So the people can say in a loud voice telling the powers that be all political power is i the hands of the people, not the government.

...But Libertarians and Paleos should come together to support secession from this utterly corrupt government.

Misleading article

A little research into this matter shows that the petition is to place a proposed amendment to the Texas Republican Party platform on the Republican Party primary ballot. This proposal would have NO legal standing with the Texas legislature or any other government body within Texas.

While I applaud efforts in Texas regarding independence, this petition does nothing to advance that cause. Should there be a real effort to that end, they may then gain my support.

If it got on the ballot, and

If it got on the ballot, and over 50% voted for it, it would be HUGE news, and it would be a mainstream issue again.
