Texas GOP members may find themselves actually debating a subject no one thought would ever happen again — secession.
On May 12-14, the Dallas GOPconvention will have to address the widespread county resolutions in favor of such drastic action.
According to the Texas Nationalist Movement, 22 resolutions in favor of secession have been passed, which means, whether long or short, a conversation on the subject needs to be had. The Houston Chronicle has confirmed 10 thus far.
Tea-party activist Jared Woodfill told the paper: “I absolutely think the people should have an opportunity to vote on this issue.”
Texas GOP Chairman Tom Mechler isn’t impressed. “Republican isn’t even in their name.”
