Regarding a Texas secession in his Nov. 27 letter, Fabrizio Griguoli’s knowledge of American history needs a refresher. It is my understanding that, in the agreement signed by the Texas territory as it entered the U.S. as a state, there is a specific section that mutually grants Texas the right to secede from the Union.
Specifically, the residents of Texas did not trust the overly dominating central government, and wanted to ensure their state’s rights as directed by the Constitution. I believe one other state may have this mutually-agreed-upon verbiage, but I’m not sure what state that might be.
So Mr. Griguoli, the only “legal” response the U.S. government has is to shut up and read the secession documents. They can’t do any of your suggestions “legally.” Of course, with this current administration, “legal” seems to be a foreign word.
I admire Griguoli’s draconian response, and wish he would carry it on with the millions of illegal immigrants we have sucking the country dry; then he’d have my ear. Texas has my ear and my sympathies; it probably isn’t practical, but they could get rid of the Chicago regime we have entrenched in D.C.
