Texas cannot secede but it can divide into five states. It should seriously consider this option.
Going from 2 to 10 senators would fundamentally change national politics.
Depending on where they draw the borders, a couple of those states could be Democrat controlled. Regardless, they can't do it without consent of Congress and I don't see Congress allowing it.
“Texas cannot secede but it can divide into five states. It should seriously consider this option.”
Yes and no. This was a provision in the first Texas constitution, but there have been several constitutions since then. I believe that first Texas constitution also had provisions for Texas withdrawl from the union within a certain time-frame, but it has been a few years. The modern Texas constitution doesn’t have this stuff in it.
Texas founding is unique in our history and so worth studying.
