Skip to comments.EXPLAINED: Why Texas will Secede from Union
Posted on 12/11/2013 6:13:05 PM PST by Windflier
Longtime YouTube political poster, Christopher Greene, makes a strong case for why the state of Texas will secede from the union.
Beeeutiful flag! Thx, Rita
Good luck at getting the constitutional amendment necessary for that, or the permission of the rest of the country expressed in federal legislation.
Secession by state action is not valid, as the separation would generate many controversies between the US federal government, and between the state which would have to be resolved per Article III at the Supreme Court.
Texas v. White
Right. Texas - all hat, no cattle.
See FRmail about post #4
What ever you have to say say it in public.
Do it. I will move there.
What a rational fellow you are.
I wanted to know what state was the opposite of “all hat and no cattle”.
New York City!!!!! Git me a rope boys.
Oh, you mean the same way the 13 colonies got "permission" to secede from Great Britain?
There is no law that can be crafted by the hand of man, which supersedes the God given right of a people to sever the political bands that tie them to a union which no longer serves, protects, or upholds their pursuit of life, liberty, and happiness.
“Do it. I will move there.”
I bet Texas would have a strict immigration policy and even build a wall, not only on the Mexican border but also along the five American states that it borders.
Maybe you could climb over the wall without getting shot or maybe you could dig under the wall without being caught and tossed into the furnace of a power generating plant, but you would be an illegal alien.
They’re going to deport their 4.6 million Medicaid and 3.2 million Medicare recipients to New Mexico.
got that right.
if you can’t leave how much freedom of association do you have?
it’s not like this step would be taken brashly or frequently.
I think I gave you an appropriate response to your quisling, cowardly reply.
Lead, follow, or get the hell out of the way.
The democrat solution.
GFY. I guess that’s the level of you understand.
1 Texas 11,300,000
2 Nebraska 6,300,000
3 Kansas 5,850,000
4 California 5,300,000
5 Oklahoma 4,200,000
“New York City!!!!! Git me a rope boys.”
(NY accent: Geddoudaheah! /NY accent)
(Texas accent: Well bless your heart..... /Texas accent)
Would you still say that if Michigan joined us?
Friend, the productive states have to do something to stop the inevitable march toward absolute tyranny, or we'll all be lost. What better way, than to sever our political ties with the parasite states, then give them time for starvation to bring them to their senses?
Separation would likely be an impermanent state. Eventually, the blue states would come begging for reunification, and when we agreed, it would be on our terms.
That's what I foresee.
Many thanks for the information!
Texas has WAAAAY more cattle than hats!!!!!
Thank you Mr. Literal.
Heh..... Blows that little meme out of the water, now doesn’t it?
Well, do it soon. I’m a Philadelphia Eagles fan. The NFL refuses to have foreign teams, so we would clinch the division if Texas left.
Chuckle. Rumors say Perry is trying to expand medicaid though.
But d man a didn’t give any statistics to support his / her position.....
These dip shits thing they don’t have their own “liberal” problem?
Seven rows of seven stars, offset. Looks very similar to the 50-star flag.
In 2004 Michigan (As well as several other states)liberals were throwing a tantrum and petitioning then Governor Granholm to secede from “Bushlandia”. Even she blew them off.
Its not happening Deal with it.
Jen “seceded” to Berkeley about a week after her term was over, LOL.
As a Texan, my opinion is that all freedom loving states should tell the unconstitutional federalis....GF yourselves..
It is our RIGHT to be free. We need no permission, nor should we ask permission.
Ran like hell is more like it.
Texas isn’t going to secede.
Your Republic of Texas passport application has been delayed due to spurious and demeaning comments you posted about Texas secession on 11 December 2013.
Should you choose to post a full retraction and heartfelt apology, your application will be reconsidered.

"Don't Mess With Texas"
Don't need either.
Secession by state action is not valid, as the separation would generate many controversies .....
Tough noogies. This is what happens when you urinate on people and brown them off.
Texas v. White
Funny thing about Supreme Court decisions ..... they fall a long way short of rescripts from God, especially when they're cobbled up for obvious political purposes by a Court packed with political hacks, which Salmon P. Chase certainly was. He was put on the Court to protect Lincoln from the implications of a Court finding that Lincoln's executive actions in prosecuting the Civil War (very often taken in recess) were a) overreached and b) unconstitutional (like suspending habeas corpus on a pretense of authority, which was instead an invasion of a constitutional power of the Congress only).
Any Court holding can be set aside by the next Court to consider the matter. Thus Jefferson Davis and many other constitutional scholars, which of course excludes actors like the Impostor in the White House.
ooops, what I meant to paste in didn’t take...so here’s what I meant to type:
Texas isn’t going to secede. But if it happened, it’s possible another petition would cause all those who signed the Texas secession petition to be deported:
That was then. This is now. The center of gravity is in the red states. The blue states are sucking the blood from our jugular, and will die if we cut them off.
Obama is creating a new America and Texas deciding not join Obamacare or Common Core, Texas has essentially refused to enter into Obama's turf.
Texas has, in spirit, already seceded by refusing to play ball with Obama's plan to turn our country into a Marxist state.
So there you go.
Sam Houston once said, "Texas can make it without the United States, but the United States can't make it without Texas"
I am with you!!!
This WildHighlander wants Freedom
Freedom from oppressive taxes, the proceeds of which are going to causes that are in diametric opposite to our values
Freedom from oppressive regulations, primarily the ones against our God- given rights to self- defense
Freedom from oppressive behavior control/diversity indoctrination which is in contravention to our biblically based prohibitions against perversions.
I. Want. My. God-given rights BACK!!!!!
What - you've got a crystal ball? Pick the next winning numbers in the Lotto, then get back to me on what Texas will, or will not do.
LOL! Windflier! I have got to get out of the house more!
I thought GFU meant you were saying “good for you”, for DMA telling the other poster to say whatever it was on freepmail, in public!
LOL! Hang in there. I luv ya’, and now have to dry my screen!
if God be not against you, but I doubt it.
You were right Sam.
To what country/location would they be deported?
