I thought the right to secede was part of Texas’ agreement when they entered the Union ... not subject to opinion. Do I have this wrong, or are they really saying 69% of Texans don’t know their rights?
“Do I have this wrong, or are they really saying 69% of Texans dont know their rights?”
You have it wrong. So does Gov. Perry (surprise, surprise. The deal was that Texas could split into, I believe, five separate states. The purpose being to increase its “territorial” voice in Congress. As recently as the 1930s, John Nance Garner tried to arrange just that.
I’m pretty sure they did. But so did Virginia and I want to say a few others when they signed the original Constitution. But even if they hadn’t, it isn’t a power that is denied to them and therefore they reserve the right to secede through the 10th Amendment.
To pollsters, everything is subject to opinion. That's their business.
You are correct I think.
Facts are now subject to a majority opinion.
Next up, newtons laws of physics, 38% think they are still binding, 40% think they are oppresive and dated, 2% are still undecided. The other 20% are still taking a math class.
