Could Texas Vote to Secede in 2016?


In addition to elected officials, the 2016 Republican primary ballot in Texas may also include a question as to whether or not the State of Texas should secede from the Union.

The Texas Tribune reports:

The Nederland-based Texas independence group is circulating a petition aimed at getting a non-binding vote onto the GOP primary ballot over whether “the state of Texas should reassert its status as an independent nation.”

Their goal? 75,000 signatures from registered voters by Dec. 1 — more than the 66,894 the Texas Secretary of State’s office says the group needs to get the language on the ballot.

While many ivory tower and liberal-minded people believe that secession is illegitimate and that no state can secede, our founders would have disagreed and demonstrated that they could secede in the War for Independence.

While the War of Northern Aggression did include secession, it did not prove that secession was not a natural right of the states, especially in light of the words of Thomas Jefferson in the Declaration of Independence.
