The Texas Republican Party issued a statement tantamount to a call for secession after the Supreme Court refused to overturn the election.
Read the statement:
The @TexasGOP released a statement following the Supreme Court decision almost calling for the spin-off:

The Texas Republicans suggested, "Perhaps law-abiding states should band together and form a union of states that abide by the Constitution."
The above sentence was the Republican Party of a state which put it out there that states that had joined the lawsuit to overturn a democratic election should come together and form their own country.
Republicans are literally thinking about civil war because Donald Trump lost. Texas and her fellow Red states would be free to go. Trump was an admirer of the Confederate statues in office, so it's hard to imagine anyone better than the next Jefferson Davis.
Republicans are angry because their plan to destroy the electoral system and trample the US Constitution has failed. Texas and all other states and members of Congress who have joined them have already committed an inflammatory act. Secession thus seems like the next step for a group of people who really hate democracy.
