The last time a state

decided to assert it's right to be free and sovereign we had a civil war. I think it is great that the people of Texas are trying to assert their independence, but I also think the chances of the Federal Govt. agreeing to let any state secede are about as good as Obama deciding to release his college records...about zero. If secession is ever going to occur, it is not going to be done by asking permission, but by just doing what is naturally your right without permission....and then that state and everyone else in the country will get a good personal look at what our federal government truly has become. The shock value alone of seeing what their actual response would be is worth the effort, IMO.
