Secede? ‘republic’ Claims Texas Never Joined U.s.

A volunteer organization’s profile was raised when local, state and federal authorities raided a Valentine’s Day meeting.

Senh: Interesting. Like what one person said, it just sounds like a bunch of old people with a lot of time on her hands. As long as none of their members become extreme in their belief that Texas is an independent nation, and that they run it. I can also see how their letters can confuse their recipients and cause unintended harm. Otherwise, it'd be an interesting group to join just to have a mock experience of what it's like to run a country.
