To the Blaze To answer your question, heck yes, I believe in state's rights. The founders did. Needless to say but will anyway, I love my Texas. Thanks, Steve Toth and thanks Greg Abbott.
I can't stand the weather, the bugs, and the snakes, but every day that goes by makes Texas more and more attractive.
I hope it passes and is signed by the governor. I just wonder how it will fare in the communistically inclined federal judiciary.

Thank you Rep. Toth for your leadership on this. “Texas now! Texas Forever!”

Treacherous to believe that government should be by the consent of the governed? I read some of these comments and I am deeply saddened by what a bunch of cowardly sheep my countrymen and women have become. So be it. Get down on your knees and take what scraps Washington and the ruling class have to toss your way. As for me, my family, and the other 25% of my Texian brothers and sisters, lets keep working, educating, and praying for real freedom. If Scotland can be free of English tyranny, and Georgia can be free of Russian Tyranny, than Texas can be free of American tyranny. It takes only a true burning desire, tireless will, and time. History has born this out again and again.

Amen, Brother! I am always amused by the use of “union” in these comments, as though the relationship is mutual an consenting. The relation of the South to the North’s union is as the relation of the rape victim to the rapist. they may be united, but it can hardly be called a union.
May God Bless the Army of Trans-Mississippi!

I salute you Byron for being a critical thinker and finding your true history, and not simply digesting the revisionist garbage served up as history in our school systems. You are black and I am white, just as you are a South Carolinian and I am a Texan, but I call you my brother!
For those interested search 37th Tx Cavalry one of the first integrated American army units (C.S.A.) with both Blacks and Hispanics (with non-white officers). Or the first commissioned woman officer in an American army (Captain Sally Tompkins C.S.A.). What you never learned of these? There is much more to find if you desire truth.
