    There is a discredited constitutional theory called "nullification", that was debated in the 1850s just prior to the US Civil War. This State Representative may be basing her actions on that 19th-Century concept.

    It says a US State, being a sovereign entity, may nullify (declare not applicable to itself) those Federal laws with which it disagrees. This revival of the nullification movement, which exists in other States, raises the specter of a new civil war conflict.

    My response is to just cut Texas loose, and let them become independent, as seems to be their desire. And invite Mexico to reassert its claims to "Tay-has". Without a US Federal Army to defend it, Texas would fall in a matter of weeks.

    Instead of Texans worrying about Mexican infiltrating their border, they would BECOME Mexicans themselves. Problem solved.

    Although then the States bordering Texas would have to worry about the newly-minted Mexicans infiltrating THEIR borders. I hope their solutions would be as harsh & draconian as those of Texas have been.

    Spending billions of US tax payer dollars to build a border fence line and US marshal patrols around the state of Texas, after their secession, seems like a worth while investment, im IN icon_wink.gif

    May be this is why Texas wants to build the Keystone pipeline (ND to TX) sooo bad, so they can steal or hog all the US oil when they do secede, charging and monopolizing the US oil industry like the current middle east does, hmmmmmm icon_idea.gif

    Did you read the article? I'm thinking not ... just drinking that delicious blood-red Republican Kool-Aid.

    Only 23 current and former Republicans members of the House signed that bill. How many are current vs. former? How many are interns and consultants, janitors and male hustlers?

    Nice try, mx5guynj, but that bird won't fly.
