3. Perhaps a 20 year / no $ down lease?

They could change their mind...

4. You'd have to let South Texas(which is the blue zone in the state)remain in the Union

(which its residents would prefer) as well as El Paso, and Harris and Dallas Counties. it's North Texas that's the hotbed of secessionism.

5. I don't see any signs where Texas is holding anyone hostage and those wishing to secede can just go.

It could be known as self deportation, don't care where they go but we don't need the likes of ones with disregard of the laws and rules of the United States.

8. Except we can't let them have the Gulf. They can fish but

they can't mine it for oil and gas. That would be a condition of allowing them to secede peacefully.

11. Nah..

let the assholes who want to secede, leave and let us TRUE Americans stay. I love my state and I'm not going anywhere.

The bible thumpers can leave and start a big mega church and live in total chaos and madness...and the rest of us will point and laugh.

14. No Way!

If the crybabies don't like living in the USA want to leave they should just pack their shit up and get the hell out. We don't owe them anything, we certainly don't owe them a chunk of the country they claim to now not want to live in. I'd pitch in a small donation for their ticket out if it would make them STFU and leave already.

Or for that matter, New Mexico.

15. Apology not accepted.

How about proposing the revocation of the sore losers' citizenships and let them get stuck on the Mexican border, unable to either re-enter the U.S. or get into Mexico? Let their limboed status form the "wall" between the countries

16. No offense, but, up yours

the Republicans took over this state because the national party deserted us, except to use us as their ATM for races in other states.

Had we not been abandoned, we, as a country, wouldn't be in this mess.

17. You're just kidding yourself. Texas went republican for the same reason the rest of the south

 

left the Democratic Party. Jimmy Carter is the only Democratic candidate they voted for since Johnson.

27. Sometimes people need the objectivity of others to point out what they are too close to see.

 

Really, you're kidding yourself.

24. They didn't keep it

I almost added "back" to my post, but decided to just leave it. My bad!

I got a pretty good dose of that history on visits to the Alamo. I always thought that history was fascinating, and the museum there has some wonderful exhibits.

22. What percentage of Texans even want to secede?

Not all Republicans will agree with this even. How many signatures are there? What percentage of Texans?

If people don't like living in the US, they can leave the US. They don't get to take any of the US with them. They're into "self deportation." They can go any time they want.

25. Would that make any Texan that comes to the USA an illegal immigrant?

I am assuming if they secede, they will lose their US citizenship.
