31% of Texans are too stupid to realize that their state cannot secede from the Union.
now there’s an unpragmatic view. what do you think the response would be, an invasion?
this ain’t 1880.
Yeah, but we are smarter than you since we live here...
I’m not so sure on that.
As pointed out in one of the other threads the 10th Amendment says “powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”
The Constitution makes no mention of secession therefor it’s a power reserved to the State. Far as I am concerned Constitutionally States can and may secede if The People of that State vote to do so, probably through the State’s Constitutional process.
That doesn’t mean though that the USA has to just let them...we know how that worked out last time.
This Texan doesn’t care if we “cannot”, we’ll do it anyway.
We “can” if nobody stops us. And do you really believe the same people who couldn’t stomach 4000 military deaths half way around the world are going to stomach a military invasion of Texas? Please. This ain’t 1861.
