No I’m all for state’s rights and I believe that it will take a state like Texas declaring independence to reclaim our freedoms. It’s just the logistics of the deal are so different because the Fed government in 1860 had virtually none of the ties that bind them with states today.
Those “ties” you mention benefit no one but the freeloaders in this country. Every one can be broken and discarded, as long as the people of Texas (or whatever other state) just remains firm. And it’s long overdue that our side decides to get some guts and stand up. With weapons, if need be.
