    Where specifically in the Constitution is Secession prohibited?

    Politics is the science of opportunity. If you do not mean geographically it moving there of course, then yes it is possible even though not probable.

    Just elaborating a bit on the timing of how and when the two all of a sudden wanted divorce. I know that Texans "adore" Brits and vice versa, this too may be an issue against my Britex hypothesis. But, hey, just in case it happens I proposed this hypothesis right here!

    Re: White House denies Texas secession

    If the founders didnt intend for a state to ever be allowed to leave till the end of time, why did they write:

    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
    Well, at least we now know that Obama doesnt beleive people have a right to be free, to self governance.
