A resolution that would put Texas secession on the ballot for Republican primary voters has cleared its first hurdle by passing the Republican Party of Texas’ Resolution Committee. The committee met during a regular meeting of the State Republican Executive Committee (SREC).
The resolution was submitted to a vote by the resolutions committee after language was agreed upon.
Six people spoke for the resolution and no one spoke against it. The resolution passed by a vote of 7 to 4.
As passed, the wording of the resolution is as follows:
"If the federal government continues to disregard the Constitution and the sovereignty of the State of Texas, the State of Texas and its people should reassert its prior status as an independent nation."
The committeewoman who presented the resolution, Tanya Robertson, SD11, said Texas independence should be put before the voters because Texans are dissatisfied with Washington D.C. representatives and excessive federal government spending.

Instead of posturing, why doesn't Texas get other states involved and collectively file a general grievance with the Federal government?
