We’ve all heard the pundits suggest that our nation is as divided as it was during the lead-up to the Civil War, but perhaps we didn’t really believe them. After all, it is the job of the mainstream media to rile us up for ratings, as the advertisers tend to like it when people are glued to their television sets.
But the latest news out of Texas may have some of us wondering just how much of that talk was hyperbole and how much of it was prophetic.
Texas Republicans are pushing for a referendum to decide whether the state should secede from the U.S.
The demand for Texans to be allowed to vote on the issue in 2023 was one of many measures adopted in the Texas GOP’s party platform following last week’s state convention in Houston.
There was no denying the sentiment.
