    that exactly what the opposers are saying... all of them.

    I think they're a bit cheerful about it too... like they enjoy the thought of it happening.

    Makes me think the feds should pay us Texans rent. After all what country is that property protecting? Germany? Saudi Arabia? England?

    Not all of Texas is federal land...what about the land that is privately/state owned?

    the convention was clear, the federal government was not GRANTED the power to preserve the harmony of the UNION.

    YOUR VOTE, WAS TAKEN BY THE NY RATIFYING CONVENTION...NOT THE FOUNDERS.

    SCOTUS ruled there is a provision for states to secede. By the consent of the states.

    Get that --> Good to go.

    Last I heard, Texas received 90 cents or less for every dollar its residents and businesses sent to Washington.

    They are takers, not givers.
