    And that is fine. Continue in your study. That is all I ask.

    Apparently some claim they do want secede, such as Texas. So why doesn't Texas Gov. Perry propose getting a majority vote of the people in his state to get the ball rolling for secession? Why even bring the topic up if he and his cohorts had no intention of seceding?

    I suspect that the civil war southern states never tried to get a majority vote of the population in their states before their legislatures acted on their own accord to secede. Which is probably another reason why the southern states seccession was unconstitutional. Because the constitution preamble says, We the people of the United States, it doesn't say we the "Politicians of the Southern United States."

    Who knows? I imagine that he doesn't think the people of Texas wish to secede right now.

    that's ironic, as the CSA violently started the war, and seized private property.
