Jeff, If you think that any state attempting to Secede would not be considered a revolution, please see: “Revolution, American”; or “Civil War, US”.
I am totally good with that strategy if you are…the question is, how do you get the
people of the state to the point of Secession? By what mechanism does Texas formally notify the US Government of its intent to Secede?
These are the questions Texas Patriots will need to ask, answer, plan to, and execute against over the next 10 years as the US as a whole slides inexorably into hell.

Dean, do you mean Revolution or Restoration ? Let's not be like the left and change the meaning of words. If you are thinking Revolution, you are to early. If you are thinking Restoration, you could be too late. The problem at this time is the intentional destruction of the American Cultural Heritage by the left has been rather
successful. This has been done through the public schools and universities, through PBS and the liberal news media, through the stream of lies and views portrayed by Hollywood, through the massive influx of legal and illegal foreigners - many of whom are here only because of economics, through economic globalism, and through the sense of enlightenment that many in the recipient "class" have. Frankly neither Revolution as things are not bad enough, nor Restoration as the demographics of Americans whom know and desire their liberties loss, would currently be winning strategies. Now I am as frustrated as any Constitution loving God fearing American, So let me advise the only viable route for the next decade or more is for states to secede using the US declaration of independence as their rational.. This would not likely be peaceful and only a few states have enough individuals whom
could desire such an change. Texas may be one of them, but I could be wrong. So, before I get further involved, please define the strategy and why it could succeed. Thank You, Jeff
This idea that states have any choice to do anything have a gigantic caveat that must be considered—and often over looked.
States, individuals, communities, and every other entity we have in our society is so coerced by Federal government intervention—it makes the “central planning” of the soviet in comparison, but amateurs.
Our nation’s destruction was designed by a man named John Maynard Keynes, who we identify as an economist—which is about as accurate as saying Hitler was the greatest benefactor for Jews known to mankind—who was a socialist, communist, sob…creating nihilism to destroy this nation. Sadly he thought the west so damn stupid he told us so in his writing, sharing his dementia…quoting the others who also had the dementia. One comment he make; “Lenis is said to have declared that the best way to destroy the capitalistic system was to debauch the currency…Lenin was certainly right. There is no subtler, nor surer means of overturning the existing basis of society than to debauch the currency. The process engages all the hidden forces of economic law on the side of destruction, and does it in a manner which not one man in a million can diagnose.”
The federal government, which uses money—fiat money without any value—to enforce their objectives of power creates the coercion of making programs originated by the federal government…somewhat financed to set the hook…and then left to be funded by local entities that may or may not have ever had the program, except for the wonder of that “GOVERNMENT FREE MONEY.”
Now why is this important? Think of the reality we now have, what is the largest threat that the federals government has over the people to keep them obeying their dictates?
It is the wonderful social programs that have been sold to the people, to steel their money—and they
have no recourse how to get it back. As a state we have no access to the funding paid in by our citizens for these social programs; such as social security, Medicare, and—what is also inclusive Medicaid—with no way to fund, except with federal dollars…freshly printed.
It’s the reason that this nation was designed to have states independent from government—but have be coerced to make them nothing but beggars with their hands out…for the crumbs the federal government returns.
The answer is to initiate all of the actions that have broken government—overturn the 17th amendment would be a great place to start; even if we only passed our state laws that the political power in power would
not only elect, but “DIRECT” the actions of our senators. Removing them from control of the political parties—nationally, and returned to state political responsibility—would show we are serious, and the hell with national policy overturning the constitutionally of this nation.
There is not a simple answer—our 150 years of going the wrong way since Lincoln isn’t going to be corrected overnight. We just need enough of those who at least see the problem to begin to find some way, some way that is marketable in a nation of ignorant electorate—that will entice them to overcome the “free” gifts of the communist democrats.
“When a republic has been corrupted, none of the ills that arise can be remedied except by removing the corruption and recalling the principles; every other correction is either useless or a new ill.” Montesguieu
