wasn't sure where to put this

but I would like details on that story.. .assuming it was a serious one

This kinda belongs here if for no other reason than that... well: Ted Cruz, attorney and TX Senator... has presented many cases b4 the Sup Ct.. has won a lot of them. He was/is Tea Party

wonder what he would have to say about this seceding thing?

They were successful after Travis attacked with a large army surprising and capturing the Mexican dictator Santa Anna Battle of San Jacinto. The Mexican dictator was forced to recognize Texas’ independence and withdrew his forces south of the Rio Grande.

I'm surprised you didn't know.
Texas declares independence

The only binding agreement Texas made when it joined the union was that it could split off up 4 more states from it's vast territory.

Texas still holds the right to secede.

There's ALWAYS talk from some idiot about Texas leaving the US to go on it's own.

Unfortunately the governor of Texas has to file for secedence.
And we haven't had any with the balls to do it.

Texas only has the right to split into 4 more states per the documents when it was admitted to the Union. It simply never had the right to succeed.

Nice memes. Very very insulting. You should be extremely proud.

I think the case of Lee vs. Grant (appeal denied) confirmed that Texas has no right to secession.
