Talk about bringing the feds down upon us. Pass a state law authorizing the people to arrest illegal aliens and see how long it takes to see federal troops in Austin.

On the slavery issue, since I’m sure there will be posts stating it THE reason for the Civil War, I’ve always wondered why it took Lincoln so long to free the slaves.

Every two years the state legislature in Austin begins the session with a vote to seceed. Naturally it never passes.

“Federal Troops in Austin”

Would be a very bad experiment.

Sure we have some lefties in Austin, but “outsiders” who tried to oppress TX before, later regretted it.

That has not changed. And it is that way in more than just TX.

Probably because he didn't consider it a very good idea to free them. After all the historical fact is that the sainted Lincoln never freed a single slave in any of the States or Territories over which he ruled. Not one. Zero.
