If the fed gov does not inter seed in helping the state out then yes the governor can call out the Militia. If he is using it to protect the state from possibly invasion from a foreign invader that would also affect the U.S. on a national level.Can the governor ask the militia to respond?
Oh!There are no states that are seceding from the Union, not happening.
There is no capability under the Constitution for any individual state to unilaterally secede from the Union,
Phalanx, you need to brush up on your Texas history. Unfortunately, Texas has no more or less right to declare sovereignty than any other state. Somehow, this notion has been perpetuated over the years by the myth that Texas made some special deal with the US when it became a state. It did not. In fact, this was one of topics we discussed in my History of Texas law class.Mrchem ,i don't know what your keeping up with , Texas always has had a Declaration of Sovereignty.
I can throw a rock and hit Texas from my house so i know whats happening there.
Perry isnt in charge as much as you would be lead to believe.
Old Family's run Texas ,and Hutchinson is the voice of that State.
I was born near Abilene , and i still have family there and Waco.
Dont fool yourself into thinking Texas isn't doing something.
