If Hillary Clinton wins in November, expect the secession movement in Texas to gain lots of momentum. I would be willing to bet that senior state officials, especially Lt. Governor Dan Patrick, would warm to the idea of secession.
I love Lord Monckton. He has the best grammar ever.
Just let this NY’er in before the new Texas border closes. I don’t want to be trapped behind enemy lines.
A decade ago, Texans might have chosen to secede. Our success during the Great Recession drew a ton of yankees and other foreigners who want to change Texas rather than keep Texas and they will all vote against secession because they either won’t understand or disagree with why Texas would leave.
The only hope left for our Republic is a Constitutional convention called by the states where the abuses of our Liberty heaped upon us for the last 80 years can be addressed. Desperately needed are Amendments that prohibit Congress exempting themselves or the Executive and Judicial branches from any laws they pass and absolute term limits for members of Congress and all federal judges including the Supreme Court. The powers of federal executive agencies also needed to be limited as should lawmaking by unelected federal judges. I fear that our nation is on the brink of a more violent revolution more like that in France in 1789 unless we take back our Constitution
The only problem with Texas seceding is that they’d have a HUGE immigration problem. And I’d be a part of it.
We have oil aplenty, lots of agriculture, fishing, lots of vets and arms, a chemical industry second to none, a vibrant hi-tech industry, space-industrial infrastructure, etc., etc. Also, we send more money to DC than DC sends back, so we could simply stop sending DC anything and then have a big tax cut while still funding the state budget (which, BTW, is balanced and often produces big surpluses).
Let’s go for it - we’ll be one of the world’s largest economies, and largely self-sufficient in many regards.
To paraphrase Davy Crockett: “You liberals may all go to Hell, but I’m going to Texas!”
Texas bump for later...
