Texas Secession... WTF???

Keith Olbermann discusses what would happen if Texas was to leave the Union. My question is, what do we need to do to get them to leave? Is there some paperwork we need to get going? Do I need to start a petition, is there a number of signatures required?

Again, Keith Olbermann is a partisan hack. This became clear to me when he condemned wiretapping under Bush but become apologetic towards Obama's betrayal on this issue.

It's interesting how Olbermann refers to the suggested secession of Texas as "treason." Since he used the actual text of the US Constitution to deconstruct Prejean's statements about the freedom of speech, I am sure that Olbermann is aware of the US Constitution's strict definition of treason. I fail to see how secession would fit the Constitution's definition.

It's also interesting how Olbermann implies that the US likely would slaughter Texans en masse and perpetrate wanton destruction and savagery against Texas if it were to secede. Lincoln would be proud. To quote Monty Python and the Holy Grail, "Ah, now we see the violence inherent in the system!"

Umm succession is now & always has been treason. It's always been the case, and was during the Civil War. No matter if anyone imagines otherwise. JMP
