Even Murchison is doing it !! He's already decided that secession will never go anywhere, so just stop talking about it. He's already decided its pointless. What if Jefferson and Washington and Patrick Henry had decided it was pointless and just said "suck it up and deal with it!" We wouldn't have the United States of America. They managed to secede from the British Empire with virtually no help from their Congress. We can secede--and should! If Texas goes (or any state for that matter), I go with her. It's not only American, it's morally correct to do so.
