Original Article

Lawmakers in Texas say they are considering pursuing a Brexit-like movement as an alternative to living under what they see as rising Democratic socialism, and they say lawmakers in other states have shown a similar interest.“This is not about war, this is not about actually seceding from the United States,” state Rep. Kyle Biedermann (R) told Newsmax TV’s Chris Salcedo on Monday after praising Americans from around the country for “standing up” and expressing themselves following the election.“This is about the beginning of a process, an act, just like Brexit,” he continued, referencing Great Britain’s separation from the European Union.“Brexit was a vote of the people

I do believe that all states need to modify their constitutions to firm up our election laws. Without this, we're toast.

The United States is a union of 50 SOVEREIGN states. All of whom voluntarily joined said Union. Despite what the Supreme declared, there is nothing in the constitution that says a state can not leave. Claiming otherwise is ludicrous in light of the first sentence of the Declaration establishing said Union. "When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation." The union is not a suicide pact. The union was founded on the principles of self determination, liberty, equal "justice" and protecting the rights of the minority. When a handful of states have sufficient electoral power to run roughshod over the others, and when there is no place to turn for redress, separation becomes necessary.

Interesting idea. However based on COVID reactions I'm concerned that many red-state governors are either RINOs, or just wimpy. There are a few standouts, such as DeSantis and Noem. Strong defense of states' rights should be the defining issue in upcoming gubernatorial elections.

Native Texas, 6th generation. When you grow up here you don't think about it much, but when watching a documentary on ZZ Top on Netflix one of their managers said how "these guys are different, not going to follow the crowd, very independent" and he was flummoxed while managing them. Then he said he grew to learn and realize they were all from Texas, and Texans fought for their freedom from Mexico and became an Independent Nation, and they were different to their core. Texas has its own electrical grid, and when the US got off the gold standard, Texas did not. We have our own bunch of gold. It's quite a natural reaction for us to go "Ummm, wait a minute - we didn't fight to become a part of this!"

The same idea goes for a state (or states) that goes for a group of people trying to take back their freedom: You either make a definitive move or you forget it. In other words, the state of Texas best not pussyfoot around and do things halfway. The crapweasel dictators of America mean to enslave and kill us, and they're not going to dillydally around while we organize to stop them. Comprende?

Well Good Morning America For those of you who don't realize it The Republic of Texas consists of ... Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, Montana, Alberta (Canada), Saskatchewan (Canada), Manitoba(Canada). Let's go EAST. Louisiana, Mississippi. Alabama, and Florida. That's every seaport in the Gulf of Mexico and more oil than the Saudis ever dreamed of. That's Spaceports and medical research facilities AND WE WILL DEFEND OUR BORDERS. Let California and New York print their own damn money. Let Chicago shoot themselves to death with their restricted hand guns. If you show up at The Republic of Texas you had better have a pre-approved visa in your US passport.

The comparison with Brexit is not apt since Europe has neither the means nor the will to force Britain to remain. The American federal government has demonstrated that it is morally ruthless and violent. There is no way such a move on the part of any state won't trigger a violent response from the Feds.

"Any people, anywhere, being inclined and having the power, have the right to rise up and shake off the existing government, and form a new one that suits them better. This is a most valuable and most sacred right—a right which we hope and believe is to liberate the world. Nor is this right confined to cases in which the whole people of an existing government may choose to exercise it. Any portion of such people, that can may revolutionize and make their own of so many of the territory as they inhabit." Abraham Lincoln, Jan. 12, 1848

Either this or something else. We can no longer tolerate stolen elections that will take our freedoms away. We look at Cuba and we look at Venezuela, an island and a country, both had great economies before their elections were stolen and they were forced into socialism. We can not tolerate that starting here. Democrats have sold the souls of their children to their socialist party, we can never do the same. Got it...

fta "The U.S. Supreme Court decided in 1869 in a case, ironically enough, involving the Lone Star State, that secession was unconstitutional. In Texas v. White, the court ruled the U.S. is “an indestructible union” and that no state is entitled to leave once it joins the union of states." According to the 1869 Supreme court all states are occupied territory and have no rights other than what the federal government allows. Another way to describe this is slavery.

My apologies for a second post, but the fact that the USSC told Texans they didnt have standing, they tacitly agreed that we are not beholden to them to remain in the Union. This is equivalent to Santa Ana getting elected into his government (a government that copied the US Constitution) and then trashing it to become dictator because "his people" (that included the Texians of Tejas y Coahuila) were too stupid to govern themselves. The USSC said it, not Texans. As far as this Texan is concerned, Ive been given the go ahead. EAGLES UP.

"I'll see your "Wash DC as a state" and raise you four new Texas." Uniquely among U.S. states, Texas was admitted to the Union with a pre-approved ‘entitlement’ to further divide itself into up to five states should it choose to do so. All in all, I've had more than enough of this decrepit Union and am looking forward to a time where like minded states formed, "a more perfect union." https://www.honestaustin.com/2018/08/15/texas-split-divide-into-five-states/ Howdy from Deep in the Piney Woods.

Take Arizona, Nevada, Idaho, Montana, Northeastern California, Eastern Washington, Eastern Oregon as well. Give Las Vegas to California, Disallow voting by anyone that moved from coastal California, Chicago (Arizona) and the Northeast - NY, Boston, Baltimore for 30+ years - if they ever voted Democrat ....... Accept Idaho if they send Romney and all his friends back to Massachusetts in disgrace. Require voter ID, paper ballots and purple fingers (maybe the middle one as a salute to the coastal self-anointed elites?). Restore traditional civics instruction in K-12. Covering questions like why slaves only counted as 3/5ths of a person (to make sure the southern states did not rule the House) Point out that oh-so-holy Britain did not ban slavery until 1833 and they were still wiping out aboriginal people all over the globe until the late 1800s and early 1900s and that they supported the south in the civil war. Cover the founders on the second amendment (everyone may and should be armed with weapons equivalent to the common infantry weapon of the day). Note that private citizens were allowed to own warships and canons. Banish all liberal arts professors who preach leftism back to Yale and Harvard and other liberal edens from whence they sprang.

Some of the smaller of the 13 original colonies wouldn't join the US unless the electoral college wasn't available. Had that not been provided some of those "states" might very will be independent nations. Texas was a Republic before joining the US. I don't see any reason why a State can't secede and form their own country if they want to unless it's in one of the Amendments after the original 12.

Antifa and others inserted themselves into the Capitol protests and framed Trump supporters. There is now ample evidence to support this. Antifa-BLM leader John Sullivan organized an Antifa protest at the Washington Memorial not far from the US Capitol on January 6th. This was right before the violence at the US Capitol.For some reason, the mainstream media refuses to report on this Antifa protest? John Sullivan was later arrested for rioting inside the US Capitol. No one has yet asked what happened to his cronies? There is also video of Antifa handing out weapons from a bag during the Capitol Hill riots.

On Friday night, writing for The Washington Post, conservative attorney George Conway laid out the way forward to investigate former President Donald Trump for his criminal conduct in office now that he is a private citizen — and prosecute him where appropriate. "Trump departed the White House a possible — many would say probable, provable — criminal, one who has left a sordid trail of potential and actual misconduct that remains to be fully investigated," wrote Conway. "A desperate fear of criminal indictment may even explain Trump's willingness to break any number of laws to stay in office despite losing his reelection bid, democracy and the Constitution be damned."
