    This isn't a difficult concept, you know.

I don't want to be ANY PART of a nation like that. God Bless, Texas! Nation of the Free!

    Besides, were going to start disobeying and ignoring American law anyway. And that goes ditto for most of the other Southern States.
    Have fun.

    Good luck in prison, if you don't go down in flames gonzo-style first.

    No it isnt. What do you think independence is? Abolishment of the previous govt.

    Re: Would you support the right of Texas to secede?

    The minority neo-confederate secessionists like to pretend that the Civil War was not legally decisive.

    Amendment XIV

    Section 1.

    All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.


    No State Government can remove US citizenship from a US citizen. Secession would violate the US Constitution. Texas's Constitution affirms that the US Constitution is the law of the land, that their powers are not above it. It is impossible for a State to secede under the Constitution. End of story.

    There was no attempt by the CSA alter or abolish the existing government of the United States.

    What part of that isn't getting through?

    The entire war thing never entered the picture?

    The Constitution is the law of the land. The South tried to deny that fact. In doing so they were trying to abolish the Constitutional power invested in the ratification of it. In other words the South tried to abolish the US government/UNION. Secession is the opposite of UNION.

    People have been making comparisons to the American Revolution.

    It is not. That is the point. Secession is not the same as Revolution.


    The American Revolution … Not the American Secession


    Secession is the opposite of UNION.
    Agreed.

    Secession was a pretty big alteration. Which abolished the US govt in those states.

    What part of that isnt getting through?
