In response to the United States Supreme Court’s ruling against President Trump, Texas, and the 17 states that joined with Texas in asking the Court to overturn the Presidential Election, Allen West, the Chairman of the Texas Republican Party, has called on those states to form a new Union of States. Essentially, West is recommending that those states secede from the United States of America and form a new country.
Here is Allen West’s full statement:
“The Supreme Court, in tossing the Texas lawsuit that was joined by seventeen states and 106 US congressman, has decreed that a state can take unconstitutional actions and violate its own election law. Resulting in damaging effects on other states that abide by the law, while the guilty state suffers no consequences. This decision establishes a precedent that says states can violate the US constitution and not be held accountable. This decision will have far-reaching ramifications for the future of our constitutional republic. Perhaps law-abiding states should bond together and form a Union of states that will abide by the constitution.”
