Remember the Alamo — but forget secession. Texas can’t leave the U.S., and won’t
The Texas Secession Scam is back. So hold on to your voice and your wallet.
First, Texas cannot cede. We tried that.
Second, if Texas should somehow split off, the bubbas looking wildly over it are definitely not the people we blamed.
Tea party-style groups in Parker and Wise counties have openly welcomed secessionists for the past few weeks and taken advantage of a divided Republican party to sell rebellions along with $ 500 for life memberships.
Whether you buy this bundle or just a $ 25 Texit t-shirt, I can guarantee Texas won't be independent in your life.
Mainly it's against the law.
The articles of the Confederation describe an "eternal" association. The constitution made it "more perfect".
(People get mixed up. The joint resolution that combines the US with Texas says we can split up into up to five states, but not leave.)
Even some of the ornery secessionists admit that the only hope in Texas is to harass the rest of the country until they get rid of us.
Some of our elected officials seem to be working on it.
Also, our own constitution cannot be changed without a two-thirds vote from the Texas House and Senate in Austin.
And two thirds of our lawmakers don't want to go.
So all the flag waving, chest pounding and bravery can simply come to a standstill.
None of this stopped secessionist MP Rep. Kyle Biedermann (R-Fredericksburg), owner of an Ace hardware store and author of a bill calling for a nationwide referendum on whether that state should leave the United States.
House Bill 1359 didn't go anywhere, and probably won't. Legislation is pretty busy.
State officials are reluctant to talk about secession, mostly because half of them want to run for the presidency.
But the voice of Fredericksburg Ace Hardware is more than ready to speak.
The federal government is "unfaithful" and "it's time to kick them out," Biedermann said at a March 5 Weatherford meeting of the Parker County Conservatives, a group funded largely by campaign purses Farris and JoAnn Wilks of Cisco.
Biedermann likes the founders. They are "divine men who wrote the Holy Spirit-inspired Constitution".
But not so much the promise of loyalty.
"I don't like to call it 'one nation, indivisible,'" he said.
The nationwide vote would force lawmakers "to see if it is even feasible" to withdraw, he said.
There are a few minor details to clear up.
Such as constitutional rights, citizenship, military defense, loss of headquarters and jobs, pensions, social benefits, U.S. property, postal services, flight operations and, let's not forget, paying back our share of the federal debt.
Perhaps that was what Biedermann was working on January 6th when he went to Washington.
He was seen grinning on video near the steps of the US Capitol when the anti-Congress revolt broke out that day and has refused to allow the public to view that day's emails.
On WBAP / 820 AM he blamed "a few radicals" for the uprising.
(Not to be confused with the secessionists of your garden variety.)
At the Weatherford event, Biedermann said he wanted Texas to leave the United States because "we love America".
Yes. He really said that.
"We love America, and you [Americans?] Are destroying our America," Biedermann said.
"That's why we're doing this. We're trying to save our America."
He said he submitted the bill to see who left the US and who is against it.
I trust that he will see.
