Texas NEEDS to secede. Just think how many productive people will flock to the state just to avoid Federal taxes. True, an independent TX would have to have some taxes, but it would be a pittance compared the the rest of the US. If Texas goes blue because of US amnesty, this opportunity for liberty will have been lost forever.
Obama's "Emancipation Proclamation" can be an executive order giving citizenship to illegals. He likes to compare himself to Lincoln, remember.
