I live in Texas and have all my life and I can tell you Texas GOP has the same fervent ideological lunacy as California DNC or NYC does. They're 100% partisan, closed minded people (Just like many SF/NYC/Chicago DNC) who don't factor in how things would actually play out at all.
(For instance, South Texas would choose to stay in the Union, yet these people hate that truth so much that they simply refuse to talk about it because it "messes up their plans" and they know it.) Not to mention all the major urban economic hubs of Texas, Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, Austin the state capital are dark blue and would also insist on staying.
Can you imagine that? Texas would vote to somehow peacefully secede with its capital refusing to do so as well as Houston and Dallas? It makes no sense.
as for federal subsidies... that goes both ways... Texas would no longer be sending federal taxes to DC... I'm fairly certain Texas , and it's citizens, send more to DC than they receive in subsidies.
there would necessarily be a whole lot of details to hash out before the split occurred...I'm not too sure anyone in Texas or DC is actually capable of hashing out those details....much like a lot of people on this forum , all they care about is party party party.... and with a lil race baiting thrown in for flavor.
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.
