Texas GOP makes STUNNING announcement…
The state of Texas had filed a lawsuit to fight the outcome of the election. The standing held by the state was that fraudulent votes impacting an election outcome was unfair to its residents.
Texas formally argued that it had the right “to demand that all other States abide by the constitutionally set rules in appointing presidential electors to the electoral college.”
Now, some legal scholars believe the case has merits, but the United States Supreme Court did not see it that way.
In refusing to hear the case, the Supreme Court stated that Texas “has not demonstrated a judicially cognizable interest in the manner in which another State conducts its elections.”
Allen West, a former congressman for Florida and the new head of the Texas GOP, quickly responded.
West stated, “The Supreme Court, in tossing the Texas lawsuit that was joined by seventeen states and 106 US congressman, [has] decreed that a state can take unconstitutional actions and violate its own election law — resulting in damaging effects on other states that abide by the law, while the guilty state suffers no consequences,
“This decision establishes a precedent that says states can violate the U.S. Constitution and not be held accountable. This decision will have far-reaching ramifications for the future of our constitutional republic.”
West would go on to suggest that Texans be given the option to vote for Texas to establish itself as an independent nation…
The courage and leadership of Allen West never rests. Very proud to work with him and to consider him a friend and mentor. He is one of our country’s greats and was made for such times as these when bold truths must be told for the sake of our republic 🇺🇸 pic.twitter.com/b4Dz8ueLpG

Secession Not a New Idea
This may seem like a radical proposal, but this is far from the first time Texas (or other states, for that matter) has suggested secession.
If there is any state in the Republic that would be able to pull this off, it would be Texas. Unlike most Democrat-run states, Texas has a balanced budget and rarely cries for help from the federal government. Barring national emergencies, Texas would be quite content to go at this on its own.
The fact of the matter is that today, we are more or less at least two different countries existing within one, but it just is not working out the way it used to.
As Americans, we used to be able to find common ground and work out our differences to find a reasonable middle ground. The great divide probably started during the Reagan days and has been slowly simmering toward a boil since. Water started to spill over the sides of the pot during the Obama administration and I am just not sure how long it will take for the pot to get reduced to a simmer again.
It surely will not happen with the incoming administration. While Biden has been calling for unity out of one side of his mouth, he opens the other and lobs bombs at Trump and his supporters. Virtually every high-profile celebrity in the country is just as divisive, and the uber-biased media is no better.
Now that I think about it, maybe West is on to something….
