“That kind of assumes that Texas is looking for anybody’s permission to secede.”
That’s it exactly. When it comes down to the ‘Declaration of Independence” moment, there are 2 ways to go - easy or hard.
I’ve read arguments that Texas “isn’t allowed” to secede.

“It’s against the law!” Say some.
What law, citizen?
Some law back in your hometown?
STFU, GTFO and take your fail with you!

Remember the civil war didn’t start because the south seceded... It started when the south attacked Ft. Sumter...
If Texas was really careful there could be no reason for the US to attack them.
