I don't see it as unclassy. Just pandering rhetoric. And I think he'd disagree that "nothing good would come from them".

It is unbecoming of a governor to talk of secession. He may disagree but that doesn't mean he is right. He is either a remarkably a stupid man or disingenuous.

Good luck with that Texas.


HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA HAHAHAAH!!!
There's a lot more to this than taxes.. and a lot of states are at least semi-on board .. I don't see any attempts at seceding coming up anytime soon, but the fed needs to realize that they were created by the states and not the other way around. Forcing states to change laws vs not receiving fed money is bullying, especially when the money is coming FROM the states and their citizens

They could establish their own taxes and they wouldn't have to pay taxes to the feds anymore -- but yeah it'd be a sobering time for them to try to structure their new "country"

anyways, nobody's seceding but it's a very good message that the states are sending
