    since the people have a right to alter or abolish their state government they have.......then they have a right to create any form of government they choose....this is a founding principle the u.s. government has recognized

    if that government is not a republican form created by the people, then have formed something which is not within constitutional guarantee, and therefore that state cannot be part of the union...it has to be expunged.

    Anti-Democracy advocate, Mixed government is the only good government

    THE
    second point to be examined is, whether the [constitutional ]convention were authorized to frame and propose this mixed Constitution.

    texas has 1 power grid to itself....that would be lost to the u.s.

    Texas has access to the water....its not landlocked and can conduct trade

    texas has resources ..oil..and part the u.s. strategic oil reserves of america...

    It would be the final nail in the coffin for the Republican party on a national level. There is no chance of winning a Presidential election if they don't have Texas.

    I also support the right of Austin to secede from the rest of Texas.

    really?.. Texas has more resources than most other recognized countries.

    there are a few states that don't have the necessary resources for independence.. .but to argue Texas is one of them is extremely odd

    It doesn't matter. The complexities of our state's infrastructure depends on its Federal Government ties.

    Yes, like which countries SPECIFICALLY? Let's compare their current state of sovereignty with Texas'.
