Governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed: 80,000 votes and counting

The history of Texas goes back a long way.  Out of all the post-election after-shocks, the Texas petition for secession from the Union is the most striking, and ardently, most American (excuse the platitude); but it reeks of something missing from this election cycle and from the passive aggressiveness of social-media, and traditional media, for that matter: bold and straightforward initiative in spite of impossibly insurmountable opposition. Obviously, the entire secession petition movement will fade away, but in the least, hopefully, will inspire, perhaps,  a slew of future courageous actions or, at least, will survive in the memories of a few future persons who won’t shy from an uphill (American) battle (excuse the platitude).
