Recently, Texas gov. Rick Perry stirred up controversy by saying that Texans might at some point become so disgusted with Washington's gross violation of the U.S. Constitution that they would want to secede from USA. See below link
"Texas Gov. Rick Perry rattled cages when he suggested that Texans might at some point become so disgusted with Washington's gross violation of the U.S. Constitution that they would want to secede from the union. Political hustlers, their media allies and others, who have little understanding, are calling his remarks treasonous. Let's look at it."
Some Texans are flirting with idea of seceding from the Union.
So lets see. USA has been using people's right of "self-determination"as an excuse to support seperationist groups in different countries globally(ex: in Russia, South America). And of course, it support Taiwan's independence too. If US government really believe in "self-determination", does it mean Texas has the right to secede from US if it wishes to? With a black president in office, Texas, one of the most racist states of US, could one day really try to take a vote of seceding from the Union. Maybe US should practice what it preaches to let Texas have the right to determine whether it wants to stay in US?
