Texas Declaration of Independence Quote

“These, and other grievances, were patiently borne by the people of Texas, untill they reached that point at which forbearance ceases to be a virtue. We then took up arms in defence of the national constitution.”

All well and good had it remained a republic.

Mike, Norwalk

Cal, said well. Current forbearance ceases to be a virtue. Will that next point be acted out similarly ?

jim k, Austin, Tx

I think it's about time for Texas to secede.

Well said! "The point at which forbearance ceases to be a virtue" indeed says it all, because Americans really do patiently bear the intolerable -- but sometimes enough is enough. Non-violent non-cooperation with unlawful statutes is our best bet -- en masse. Let the government fire the first shots at Patriots - then you will see the American spirit rise again.
