    You do not know what most Texans will feel like on this matter in the future...period. You can guess, hope or believe...but you cannot know - it is impossible.

    As for the U.S. Government? I could care less what they say. I do not respect or honor unjust laws. And to force a state to stay against the will of it's people is unjust.

    As far as I am concerned, if the majority of Texans (or any state's population) wants to leave the United States (providing they take their share of the national debt), I support them 100%.

    Whether you (or anyone else) agrees or not is almost irrelevant to me, no offense.

    Gezzzzzzzzzzzus Gawd, Thrilla...is your brain so profoundly stuck in some political philosophical nonsense that you have can't think as an individual, independent of a political affiliation to make inspection of facts rather than appealing to your sycophant perspective?

    No idea what you are asking.

    I have no idea if and or when most Texans will/would want to leave. I am simply saying if 50%+1 want to one day, that is good enough for me.

    sanctions won't be levied... troops will be sent in to slaughter Texans and raze the lands( with history as our guide of how the federal government treats their wayward states)
    You realize that the Supreme Court denied that the Southern States who CLAIMED that they seceded...was merely a temporary suspension of the rights held by those states while it engaged in war against the US? It other words the SC denied the secession being legal.

    I get your hypothetical percentage...but what makes you believe that Texas has anywhere close to even 50% who would support Texas seceding from the US?

    this topic is not the first time its been brought to the forum before, and every time it is, there are many people who become hostile and angry towards the thread ...why?

    i in no why care if a state leaves the union, because its not my state and i respect the rights of people of others states do as they will..

    we are a union with a federal government, we do not have a country with a national government...why is it today some people act as if all states are bound into 1 voice of the people..... with people of other states meddling in the affairs of another state?

    Are you aware that Vermont attempted to secede? That's been going on for years. So are...NADA!

    Are you willing to move to a state that actually is able to secede?
