Nobody says they have to. They can stay as long as they're willing to live under the terms of their "new" country.
If its decided that a split is the only realistic alternative to a full-blown civil war, with only one winner imposing its will on the other side by force, I think people would make a choice when they need to.
It's the first step. If congress can respect that then I see no problem. If a majority of persons say in California want to live under third world conditions and a Nanny State then let them as a state. Just stop trying to impose such on the rest of the nation.
If congress refuses to honor states rights? The founding fathers showed us what must be done. That should be a last resort but never taken of the list of possibilities.
I don’t think there is any harm in discussion — is that not what Freedom of Speech is for? :)
I can’t possibly see Texas in your example — but I was just posing this question to my husband... We’d pick up and move (can’t see wi on the right side). I wonder though how many would be able to voluntarily move — are we talking about modern “wagon trains”? I can’t possibly see these logistics working though... And, I can’t see the Dems agreeing to “let” us go, either. I hope this never becomes reality. Although part of me wishes there was a place to “start over” with the Constitution — don’t get me wrong on that.
I still think there are enough people in this country who are NOT in DC that Constitutional restraint can be brought to bear again if we are educated and vigilant... The only problem is the commies are 2 generations ahead of us on that front...
Still - reinventing the wheel, is not preferable to fixing one that is broken is it? Is our government “totaled”, or merely leaking oil, and making some scary “knocks” but still running?
The geography is irrelevant. Texas is conservative because conservative people life there. If they all moved to Massachusetts they'd still be conservatives.

There would certainly be some upheaval, but we're a relatively mobile society now. People aren't risking their lives like they were in the time of literal wagon trains. If you tell the freedom-loving people which side of the border is free, and they'll find a way to get there without any assistance. Tell the freebies-loving people where they can find their freebies and they'll get there on their own. Right now, nobody has to provide assistance to the people from Gary, Indiana for them to find their way to Minnesota to sign up for welfare.

I don't know, but I'm not seeing things headed in the right direction. I see this country headed toward a cliff, and once we go over the edge its too late. Could we turn before we get to the cliff? Sure, but I'm becoming more and more doubtful that we will.
I know people that are quietly bailing out of this country right now because they see what direction we're going. I'm hopeful that we can change so I don't have to leave too, but if America continues down the path toward no longer being the land of the free, I'll head someplace else. I don't want to wind up like the people in some totalitarian state that wished they would have got out while they had the chance.
The commies/globalists/perverts/fascists are all over the world, in every government, to varying degrees. South and Central America are falling like dominoes - not every country of course, but more and more. Add to the mix Muslims - there is no safe place.
Stand and fight is the only recourse.
