Texas has both the legal and moral right to secede from a corrupt unionSubmitted by legalizeliberty on Thu, 11/15/2012 - 17:33
(NaturalNews) The reaction to my recent article on why Texas is uniquely positioned to secede from the union and run itself as an independent nation state reveals that very few people on the internet have any real knowledge of history. (Gee, is anyone surprised that people on Facebook have no clue what they're talking about?)
For the purpose of educating those who simply don't know these facts, I'm publishing selections from the Texas state constitution that make it perfectly clear: Texas voluntarily joined the union but did not surrender power to the union. It reserves the eternal right to run its own affairs.
From the Texas Constitution, article 1, section 1:
"Texas is a free and independent State, subject only to the Constitution of the United States..."
As TexasSecede.com points out: Note that it does not state "...subject to the President of the United States..." or "...subject to the Congress of the United States..." or "...subject to the collective will of one or more of the other States..."
This means Texas has loyalty only to the Constitution, and when the federal government abandons the Constitution, Texas has no obligation, moral or legal, to recognize any government that has betrayed the law of the land (the Constitution and its Bill of Rights).
