    As I understand it, the ONLY thing Texas is obligated to, in regard to federal obligation, is to uphold the constitution. I don't know what all that entails, technically.

    I don't see a "right to leave" provision in your link. As I recall, Texas tried seceding from the Union once before. We know how that one turned out.

    Doesn't that declaration allow Texas to divide into 4 seperate states if it chooses to? Or did I read that wrong?

    Texas 11th for GDP growth in '08

    Re: Nullification for Texas? Will it work?

    I am unsure of how the departure of Texas would actually affect the rest of the US economically, and no one here has convinced me that they know either.

    It is not as if their departure would lead to an economic wall between us and them.

    Economics aside... Can they go ahead and take the rest of the South with them, except perhaps the Eastern Seaboard? And maybe much of the midwest, including my state, please. Just let me get the hell out before the separation is complete.

    I wonder if we might all be happier if there was a separation. Seriously. All the Limbaugh, Coulter, Beck folks are wacked out on some rather mild reforms and Keynesian efforts to prop up the economy during a recession, along with differences about culture.

    I know I would be immensely happier not having to battle with them all the time, and they would be happier not having to battle with us all the time. We could keep the economic ties as strong as they are now... Except we would have the Federal Reserve and they would have something else, maybe some entity that can institute a Gold Standard or something else equally idiotic. We would just be separate culturally and politically. We'd have to divide the debt somehow, probably on population.

    I do think there would be profound economic consequences in the long term because one of us would be wrong about how to run an economic system, and when either of us suffers, the other would too.

    Nevertheless, I think I would be more pleased with this arrangement than displeased.

    That's an interesting point. Think about it.

    Obama and his henchmen have thrown away the Constitution. So why is Texas subject to an "obsolete document?" We have the wherewithal to exist as a sovereign nation. If a vote were held today in Texas I believe secession would be overwhelmingly voted in. Most of us have had it up to here with the garbage in Washington with its vote buying, vote stealing and Chicago corruption brought in by Obama who sold a bill of goods much like Hitler sold Germany before he took it into utter destruction. I don't want any part of that but as I see it that's exactly where we are headed.

    Could you just move out and let them go? Am I asking for the stars here? I don't think so.
