Message Subject SCOTUS case Texas V. White or why states can't secede
Poster Handle Anonymous Coward
Post Content
Texas was an independent country from 1836 to 1845. They were the only state who joined the union through a treaty instead of annexation.

Nowhere in the Texas constitution does it say that Texas can't change it's mind and break the treaty.

There is one clause in the Texas constitution that states "Texas is a free and independent State, subject only to the Constitution of the United States".

NOT to the President of the US or even the Congress of the US.

And since the US Constitution doesn't really say anything about states seceding, I don't even know why they would have to petition the US government to allow them to do so.
