Secession is Inevitable

I haven't given my first presentation favoring Texas secession yet, and already there are people who insist that Texas does not have the authority to disassociate itself from the United States. This proves that those who do not study history are disturbed and confused. Here is a comment found somewhere on Facebook:

"Texas has NO right to secede. They tried it once and lost -the Civil War. They do have the right to split themselves into up to four smaller states, by the treaty when they joined the United States. Are Texans willing to take on their pro-rated share of the U.S. National debt? Would Trump want Texas to build a wall between itself and the rest of the current United States? Would they pay for all of the current federal institutions located in Texas?"

Allow me to address this response statement by statement.

"Texas has NO right to secede"
This is an emotional response. ALL of the evidence suggests otherwise. The Law of Nations, written in 1787, was the most important book on the law of nations in the eighteenth century. It sets out with the idea "that political societies or nations live, with respect to each other, in a reciprocal independence. They are subject to the natural law. Each sovereign state claims and actually possesses an absolute independence [from] all the others." The explicitly stated purpose and principle of the United Nations Charter is "To develop friendly relations among nations based on respect for the principle of equal rights and self-determination of peoples..." Self-determination is defined as "freedom to live as one chooses" and "the determining by the people of the form their government shall have". It appears that "Secession Deniers" (a person who refuses to accept the existence, truth, or validity of something despite evidence or general support for it) have never read the Declaration of Independence. The first phrase of that document says, "When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another..." When one group "dissolves the political bands which have connected them with another" they secede! The Declaration of Independence is a secession document! If Texas isn't allowed to secede, then logically the United States can't either, and we are still colonies subject to the British Crown.

"They tried it once and lost -the Civil War"
This is a very common misconception based solely on opinion. In every separation, one party is leaving, and the other party is being left behind. Your opinion is based on which group you are in. As Americans we proudly recount our "American Revolution" as the beginning of freedom and liberty. England was not happy about losing the natural resources found in the colonies, and it tried to renege on our independence by waging the War of 1812. Texans are extremely proud of those who defended the Alamo, and immediately point to the Battle of San Jacinto as our victorious support of the Texas Declaration of Independence. Another example of secession that refutes the idea that we tried it once and lost. We've tried it twice. We won the first, and lost the second. Rumor has it that the third time is the charm.

"They do have the right to split themselves into up to four smaller states, by the treaty when they joined the United States."
This statement is almost correct. According to TSL.Texas.gov, "In another compromise designed to overcome objections to annexation, the 1845 joint resolution that admitted Texas to the Union provided that Texas could be divided into as many as five states."

"Are Texans willing to take on their pro-rated share of the U.S. National debt?"
The short answer is probably not. Not if I'm elected President of the Republic of Texas, anyway. The U.S. National debt is based on fraud, perpetrated by bankers against all Americans. I can't give you something that I don't have. Neither can Congress. Congress never had the authority to print money, therefore it is logically impossible for them to grant that authority to the Federal Reserve in 1913. "The Fed" has assumed a monopoly over counterfeiting our money with the worthless, fiat, Federal Reserve Note. "The Fed" prints money out of thin air, they loan it to the federal government, and then the American population is expected to pay the debt AND the growing interest on that debt. This an impossible task based on fraud. There is no statue of limitations on fraud, and the U.S. debt should be repudiated, and the bankers and tricksters that concocted this scheme should be imprisioned for life. It is a fraudulent debt that no sane Texan would be willing to pay.

"Would Trump want Texas to build a wall between itself and the rest of the current United States?"
Excuse me, but this is an asinine question, with no intellectual merit, intended to be inflammatory. Further evidence that the response to my post is purely emotional. However, if Donald Trump wants a wall between his remaining 49 states and Texas, he'll have to build it himself. I don't want a wall because I know that hard working Americans that long to be free and independent will be migrating to Texas as quickly as they can pack a suitcase. Additionally, all the socialist, communist, and other collectivist riffraff will be fleeing Texas in the other direction. I am highly in favor of both migrations, and a wall would be a temporary impediment to that.

"Would they pay for all of the current federal institutions located in Texas?"
Again, the short answer is no. Those familiar with Constitution know that the federal government can only purchase land "with the consent of the state legislature". Assuming that the Constitution is a contract between Texas and the federal government, then the federal government has violated that contract since they are required to "guarantee to each state a Republican form of government". The United States is operating as a communist country because all ten planks of the Communist Manifesto are enforced in this country already. The federal government has violated the contract, and Texas would be exceeding lenient to allow the federal government to maintain control of its offices and territory within Texas. We might allow them to continue to occupy Fort Hood, for example, but the federal government would have to pay us whatever rent we decide would be appropriate. To assume that Texas would pay for federal institutions is ludicrous.

Texas secession is inevitable. The only thing that would prevent it is if a vast majority of Americans suddenly woke up to the fact that the federal government is out of control, and surprised Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton by voting for Gary Johnson. From my vantage point, I think Texas secession is far more likely.

Secession


Not only does TX have the right to secede, I have the right via 2a to kill Federal officials when they become tyrannical!  That's why we have it and don't think for one second that we will not use it for its intended purposes.  If anybody disagrees with this, then move thee unto Europe or Asia or the Middle East.  Do not stand in our way, less you become collateral damage!!

Agree


I've been saying basically the same things for over a decade.  

Texit


As always, entirely enjoyed your post.  Reasoned, rational, articulate, with just a slice of humor.  Poor FB sap didn't have a chance. 

Gary's vice president running


Gary's vice president running mate is quoted as giving out gun control rants.  I have to consider  the Libertarian party to be infiltrated at least at badly as most churches.

A secession that brought along with it the whole Bar Assocation-British Law of the Sea BS would be pointless.

Do a really through job of it or just await the inevitable collapse of the globalist conspiracy..

Well spoken yet again. I'd vote for you as president.


Thank you for your beautifully spoken rebuttal. 

The Red pill


Michael,
 Thanks for the " Red Pill " . I got it from you about 12 years ago when I watched your first presentation on the Constitution for the united States.  I have read and researched everthing I could on the subject and you were 100% correct. 

Hail to The Chief!


 You will ALWAYS be my President, Mike!

Any idea on the TimeLine of said 'inevitable' Secession? I have a lot of stuff to pack...
