Could Texas succeed in seceding from the United States of America? Here are some very valuable facts on the matter as provided by C.G.P. Grey’s YouTube channel.
Texas was an independent nation for a decade
Texas had its own Presidents
If Texas was an independent country today it would be the 46th largest country in the world by population
It would be the 13th largest economy in the world
…making it comparable with Australia
Independence for most states would be a financial disaster
Not for Texas, it gives more money to the federal government than it gets back
…and could give its own citizens a tax break if it were independent
Based on it’s state constitution, Texas could also separate into 5 independent states without the permission of congress
But can Texas legally secede?
