    Default Texas GOPers Vote To Debate Secession At State Convention

    A group that advocates for Texas seceding from the United States says at least 22 local Republican conventions passed resolutions last month that called for a vote on secession at the state convention, The Houston Chronicle reported Friday.

    Ten of the counties confirmed to the newspaper that the resolutions passed at their conventions, but an official count is not expected until May. That goes to show the Texas Nationalist Movement has gained some momentum since 2012, when a secession resolution passed at just one county convention, according to the Chronicle.

    A party committee will consider introducing the resolutions at the state GOP convention, which is scheduled to take place May 12-14 in Dallas. But secession is expected to be shot down at the convention, the newspaper reported.

    The secession issue has cropped up time and time again in the Lone Star State. In December, Texas Republicans failed to pass a measure that would've asked residents whether they wanted to secede on a ballot in the state's primary.

    The Supreme Court ruled in 1869 that states don't have the right to secede, the report noted.

    Hells bells, all kinds of states talk about secession, and it never happens. Even his idol Bill Maher has jokingly talked about it. Quebec has come closer to actual secession than Texas ever will.

    It's a nothing issue, close it up.

    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Yes - how odd that news items are posted on millions of forums every day for people to talk about if they care to.

    What media source would you like and I post the same story from them.

    Does Washington Post work for you?

    Plus it's been circling around for years. Ever seen the family guy where Peter succeeds from the us? It'll be like that without the humor.

    Nothing more than the usual, "I'm taking my ball and going home" threat that every state throws around in one way or another.

    An empty threat that's been made in one form or another for over 100 years.
