Texas secession

Texas seceded in 1861 and that did not end well. Now some in Texas are talking about seceding again. I am tempted to say let Texas go because of all the trouble Texas is to the rest of the nation. However, the better, long-term solution is to convince Texas not to elect so many stupid politicians. If Texas left the Union, the Republican Party would never again elect a majority in Congress or a president. For that reason alone, the GOP should back retaining Texas in the Union.
