And to think it was only the other day the idiot governor was talking about going their own way?!
TexSportsNut saidOk Sedative I need to share with you some historical perspective to the battle of the Alamo.
waxon saidthis topic has been beaten to death and pissed on.
TX cannot succeeded, and just keep on washing ur hands and dont touch ur mouth to avoid the flu.
TexSportsNut said...Blah blah blah, words, punctuation, blah blah...
growingbig saidThe only thing Texas can do is separate into five other states.
Article IV Section 3New States may be admitted by the Congress into this Union; but no new State shall be formed or erected within the Jurisdiction of any other State; nor any State be formed by the Junction of two or more States, or Parts of States, without the Consent of the Legislatures of the States concerned as well as of the Congress.
TexSportsNut saidQuestion: Did the 13 colonies have the legal right to seperate from the United Kingdom? (etc)
I contend if a majority of citizens in a given political subdivision can disassociate itself for the greater entity for any reason. It is called political self-determination.
TexanMan82 saidThis again? The horse. It's dead. Many times over.
TexSportsNut saidRed Vespa, my contention is that if a majority wishes to disassociate itself, it can. Same are saying that states cannot secede. The nation was built as a voluntary union of various states. Please cite for me the amendment in the Constitution that prohibits secession....
growingbig saidI wonder if the U.S. would invade Texas.
