It’s no secret that deep red states and deep blue states are moving in different directions.
While Republicans want to hold fast to traditional American values, Democrats are pushing socialism, full steam ahead.
It might not be possible for the federal government, or a president, to keep these drifting parties united.
And it seems that one major conservative state is quietly moving towards secession.
Texas Republicans are pushing for a referendum to decide whether the state should secede from the U.S.
The demand for Texans to be allowed to vote on the issue in 2023 was one of many measures adopted in the Texas GOP’s party platform following last week’s state convention in Houston…
“Texas retains the right to secede from the United States, and the Texas Legislature should be called upon to pass a referendum consistent thereto.”
At their state convention, Texas Republicans passed a resolution to explore seceding from the United States.
In the statement, Republicans accused the federal government of impairing their “right of local self-government.”
Republican leaders in Texas have frequently criticized Joe Biden and his administration.
As the border crisis rages, Gov. Abbott has reached out to both Biden and Harris for aid. He claims that neither office has even responded to him.
Texas’ AG has also sued the Biden administration on many occasions, over various energy and national security policies.
It’s not far-fetched to believe the Texas GOP believes the federal government has overstepped its bounds and has ignored the rights of the state.
But can this resolution lead to a secession? For now, it is merely a part of the Texas Republican Party’s platform.
Should the party win enough influence in the already red state government, perhaps it is something they will explore in the coming year.
For now, it serves as a message to Texas voters. The GOP is letting them know that they will use every available resource to push back against the tyranny of Joe Biden.
