Texas has shocked the nation as the head of the Texas GOP, Allen West, has suggested that the state secede along with other states that are willing to follow the Constitution.
West said, “The Supreme Court, in tossing the Texas lawsuit that was joined by seventeen states and 106 US congressman, has decreed that a state can take unconstitutional actions and violate its own election law, resulting in damaging effects on other states that abide by the law, while the guilty state suffers no consequences.”
The Supreme Court’s decision to refuse to hear Texas’s case has left many in the state incensed. Supporters of the case believe it merits the attention of the nation’s highest court.
West continued saying, “This decision will have far-reaching ramifications for the future of our constitutional republic. Perhaps law-abiding states should bond together and form a Union of states that will abide by the constitution.”
The nation hasn’t experienced this level of divisiveness since the Civil War, and the refusal of the court system to review legitimate concerns isn’t helping those divisions.
The Supreme Court essentially dismissed the case because the states did not have a vested interest in another state’s actions. This is a bizarre way for the Supreme Court to respond to a case that all states most certainly have an interest in.
