Austin Tx, just days after the US Supreme Court declined to hear a Texas lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of election results in Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, and Wisconsin , software giant Oracle announced it is is moving its corporate center from Redwood City, California, in Silicon Valley to Austin, Texas. Hewlett Packard Enterprise also said earlier this month it is moving its headquarters to Houston from San Jose, California. Earlier this fall, real estate giant CBRE officially shifted its HQ from Los Angeles to Dallas.
In September the Ridgewood blog reported the New York Stock Exchange is signaling that it will move its electronic trading systems out of New Jersey if the state implements a Governor Murphy proposed tax on financial transactions. The NYSE said Friday that it will run one of its exchanges from a backup site in Chicago for a week as a demonstration of its readiness to quit the state, according to a notice sent to clients.
Texas Republican Representative Kyle Biederman is pushing for secession ie…independence for Texas. According to Biederman , the federal government is out of control and does not represent the values of Texans. That is why I am committing to file legislation this session that will allow a referendum to give Texans a vote for the State of Texas to reassert its status as an independent nation. This legislation perfectly aligns with Article 1 Section 2 of the Texas Constitution which reads:
“All political power is inherent in the people, and all free governments are founded on their authority, and instituted for their benefit. The faith of the people of Texas stands pledged to the preservation of a republican form of government, and, subject to this limitation only, they have at all times the inalienable right to alter, reform or abolish their government in such manner as they may think expedient.”
Texas, which brags of being a former independent republic before it joined the union in 1845, is seriously debating walking away from the country and its dysfunctional ways .
