Texas GOP members may find themselves actually debating a subject no one thought would ever happen again — secession.
On May 12-14, the Dallas GOP convention will have to address the widespread county resolutions in favor of such drastic action.
According to the Texas Nationalist Movement, 22 resolutions in favor of secession have been passed, which means, whether long or short, a conversation on the subject needs to be had. The Houston Chronicle has confirmed 10 thus far.
Tea-party activist Jared Woodfill told the paper: “I absolutely think the people should have an opportunity to vote on this issue.”
Texas GOP Chairman Tom Mechler wasn’t impressed: “Republican isn’t even in their name.”
It’s worth noting that it’s not just a fringe movement, though. An Austin GOP committee passed a secession revolution last year.
The U.S. Supreme Court ruled all the way back in 1861 that secession is illegal — as a matter of fact, that’s how the bloodiest war in our history was started, for those who need to brush up on their Civil War. (Better check the FACTS on that statement, in particular the TRUTH behind those responsible for Texas being INCORPORATED. Texas remains a Republic held hostage. Gov Abbott needs to take steps to immediately CORRECT the situation.)
If Texas does decide to secede, they’ll be ready, and the GOP (ignorant and traitorous) ‘elites and the ‘federal’ over reaches aren’t helping.
As our own Declaration of Independence states:
“Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”
Who knows what Texas’ future holds?
