People think this is a joke being urged by fringe elements, but it is not. For information related to the Texas movement see United we stand, divided we fall resonates among educated people because it is correct.  But, to remain united if united means servitude to corporatism, would mean self imposed slavery for the sake of unity.

In Vermont, for reasons different than Texas, the secessionist movement has been very active. See, Second Vermont Republic  The movement in Vermont long ago recognized the dangers of corporatism.

More than a half century ago President Eisenhower in his farewell address to the nation foretold of the dangers of the military industrial complex.  The corporatism argument is anything but new. "We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together."

I think at the heart of the problem is we are no longer a community.  Our grandparents built cities and communities which were tied together by the experience of building the community.  Today we live in a transient society, both locally and internationally wherein the concept of community has gone by the wayside.  We no longer live in communities - we live our individual homes and malls.

Also, we are no longer an "alert and knowledgeable citizenry."  People go to the internet to read the drivel which supports their own preestablished ignorance.  The funny thing about the internet is, unlike the printing press which helped to bring knowledge to the world, the internet may have actually reversed knowledge.  In many ways we actually have less real knowledge because of the internet.

The number of  European Separatist Movements are actually quite shocking.  The two most prominent movements in the news right now are Scotland and Catalonia.  To understand Iraq, is to understand sooner than later, the Kurds will declare the declaration of Kurdistan.  The implications in regional geopolitics will be staggering as Turkey and other countries deal with an independent Kurdistan. 

As legitimate movements in Scotland and Catalonia move forward, people in Texas and the rest of the US will say, why not us?  If Scotland or Catalonia can become their own countries, why not Texas?  Because the Texas Board of Education has removed "real history" from our textbooks, it is lost on the secessionists that the Supreme Court in Texas v. White abolished the right of secession.

Texas can secede by one of two ways, revolution of by consent of the States.

"When, therefore, Texas became one of the United States, she entered into an indissoluble relation. All the obligations of perpetual union, and all the guaranties of republican government in the Union, attached at once to the State. The act which consummated her admission into the Union was something more than a compact; it was the incorporation of a new member into the political body. And it was final. The union between Texas and the other States was as complete, as perpetual, and as indissoluble as the union between the original States. There was no place for reconsideration, or revocation, except through revolution, or through consent of the States."

I have no idea wherein secession is headed.  I do know this - well educated liberty minded people will fight corporatism.  Under Texas v. White, if enough states demand the right to secede, secession could become real.  The more the corporatists push the greater the chances for a real secessionist movement taking hold in the US.  While such an option might protect a few select states from corporatism (Texas not being one of them - inasmuch as Texas seems to be leading the battle cry  for enslavement by corporatism), others will not be able to fight the servitude of corporatism.   Remember, the military industrial complex owns Texas.

While it is true, united we stand divided we fall, it is also true, those who seek to divide us seem to be gaining headway nationally and internationally.  Who is right and who is wrong, I do not know.  All I know is, I would not have to think twice about moving to Vermont or similarly minded Republics in the event the corporatist succeed in bringing about a corporatist state.

I really wish people would learn how to read before they come to the BV - comment rejected - vulgarities do not advance your argument.

I am not calling for secession. I simply presented facts and an analysis - now if you want to live in the corporatist Republic of Texas - hey more power to you.

Now, I do not believe Texas will move for secession. It is the last thing the corporatists want - trust me a separate Texas without the US military industrial complex would mean financial ruin for Texas.

What the corporatists want is an anti US government movement so that they can convince the lemmings currently calling for secession to agree to their reforms as a viable alternative to secession.

It is at this moment you will see the New England states taking the lead for secession, while corporatists get the secessionists to agree to stay in the Union, but under the terms of a corporatist Republic which will keep the federal government at bay, while spending federal tax dollars in its continued expansion of the military complex.
