Texas Republican Social gathering Chairman Allen West is doing a number of interviews telling Texas, inaccurately, that they may secede.

CNN reported:

“That is one thing that was written into the Texas Structure,” the previous congressman stated in a single late December radio broadcast. “Or it was promised to Texas after we grew to become a part of america of America– that if we voted and determined, we might return to being our personal republic.”

Consultants, nevertheless, say that Texas can not legally secede and depart america to turn out to be its personal republic. The annexation decision West is referring to stipulates that Texas might, sooner or later, select to divide itself into 5 new states, not divide itself from the US.

Texas Republicans have an extended current historical past of calling for secession anytime that they don’t like one thing. After their bogus 2020 election lawsuit was tossed by the Supreme Court docket, Texas Republicans referred to as for secession. Texas Republicans threatened to depart the nation if Trump misplaced in 2016. Former Gov. Rick Perry referred to as for Texas to depart the US a decade in the past.

Threatening to depart america is simply what Republicans within the state do. It by no means appears to happen to them that Texas wouldn’t fare properly by itself or {that a} Texas departure would kill the Republican Social gathering on the presidential stage.

Allen West additionally thinks that states don’t need to observe legal guidelines that they don’t like and that Republican-run states have the facility to overturn federal legal guidelines.

The truth that Texas Republicans need out is an indication that issues are getting a lot better for everybody else in america.
