Dang one more thing to make me wish I was back in Texas.
The current state constitution of Texas says in article 1 section 1..."Texas is a free and independent state. Subject to only the CONSTITUTION of
the United States" It doesn't say it is subject to the president, congress or the rest of the U.S.
The Texas state constitution also says: All political power is inherent of the people. they have at all times an inalienable right to alter their
government in such matter as they might see proper.
Now from the declaratioin of Independence:
That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any
form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying
its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience
hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are
accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute
despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.
Sometimes it pays to be a civil war buff. Scary isn't it when Obama is such a fan of Lincoln. All these people out there that think Lincoln was
what is taught about him in the public school system. All I can say is bless their hearts.
