Since several states are drawing lines in the sand against the Federal Government, they must see something big coming that I don't. I mean, I'm a smart guy and all, but apart from illegal wars, the trashing of the Constitution on too many counts to list, and economic collapse, what am I missing?
Can anyone dumb this down for me, lol?

As a "outsider" do I know more about US history or I was misinformed. To my knowledge - Texas NEVER was legally part of the Union. Texas never sign to be a part of the Union. Texas was Annexed and that it is a direct violation of Constitution of US. Am I wrong on this one?.

Heck, the Texas Legislature once passed a resolution honoring the Boston Strangler: www.snopes.com...
