we certainly have a right to disband from it

Sorry, y'all. Only Texas can legally do that.

Interesting. What legally allows Texas while prohibiting the rest of us?

Cordially,

I heard, that under Governor Bush, that Texas' right to secede was overturned in a little known piece of legislation.

600,000 Americans were slaughtered to set that precedent.

But don't get too smug, even though the other states' rights were usurped, they would happily kill any Texans who tried the same thing. In fact Texas already lost that war once.

As a practical matter you're right - the Civil War saw to that, but it's a given that the Federal government was created and exists by consent of the various states, not the other way around.
