    I’ll be interested in hearing how excited Texians are about secession now.

    Also, lol @ the Texas GOP making Allen West its party boss.
    Texians? Not sure what that is.

    And why would Texans feel any different about secession?

    • Texians refers to Texans who want to secede. Like the legislator who has written a bill proposing to do so or Allen West, GOP Chairman who is in favor of secession.

      Texas Republicans endorse legislation to allow vote on secession from US

      The Texas Republican party has endorsed legislation that would allow state residents to vote whether to secede from the United States.

      In a talkshow interview, the party chair, Allen West, argued that: “Texans have a right to voice their opinions on [this] critical issue.

      “I don’t understand why anyone would feel that they need to prevent people from having a voice in something that is part of the Texas constitution,” the former Florida congressman said of the Texas Referendum Independence Act. “You cannot prevent the people from having a voice.”

      ​​​​​​West is the latest Republican to come out in support of declaring Texas an independent nation. Last month, the state representative Kyle Biedermann confirmed that he will introduce the bill for a referendum as early as this week.

          • If Texas does secede, can they please take Arizona with them?

              It would be fun to watch the troops walk in to prevent any "secession".

                I'm not sure I care about stopping secession. At some point you have to realize that the United States has gotten too big and too diverse to be managed under a single Federal umbrella. It's naive to think the the U.S won't eventually break up into smaller entities. It will eventually happen, and it won't necessarily be a bad thing.

                    Texas secession is a fun topic that has no real movement. We joke about it down here because of the Texas pride but we also know we’d be worse off on our own...although we wouldn’t mind blocking all those Californians from moving here.
