Re: Texas Secession to be addressed at the 83rd session of Texas Legislature
I've been in this state since I was 3 years old. Over the years I've read many people that try to make assertions that Texas could not do it without the union.

They are sadly mistaken. Sure, they can take the troops and equipment, but this state has something like 1/6 of the unions bases, 1/5 the land mass and despite popular opinion, nearly every kind of landscape you can think of. Plenty of farmland and this state pretty much provides for itself ... at least until Perry's weak ass came into the Governor's office, anyway.

If Texas were to become it's own country, it would have the 13th strongest economy in the world, the 46th largest country on the planet. About the same population and GDP as Australia. Not to mention, this state gives more money to the government than it receives (again, at least until Perry's weak ass came into "power").

Then factor in that most Texans have an instant brotherhood. Just for some reason when a Texan meets another Texan (online, when traveling etc), we just kinda high five and instantly bond. The state's tourist slogan is, "Texas; it's a whole other country!".

This is one of the few states that CAN do it without the union.
 Quoting: Sir Phydeau


California could and should do the same. It's the largest agricultural state in the country, producing 350 different food and crops, pays more in federal taxes than all of the southern border states combined, and gets less back than it gives, just like Texas. Plus at last assessment, has the 6th (maybe dropped to 8th now) largest economy on the world. If all that money stayed there, they'd have (in a perfect world, anyway) no more fiscal problems and do just fine. And everyone hates the place, so why not just say screw you, we're on our own?

I like Texas a lot. I think both states deserve better. I was born and raised in Chicago and spent most of my adult life in Cal. Quite a few of my friends and family moved to Texas and love it, and I like visiting them. Chicago will always be in my heart, but the politics are INSANE and ruining the place. Thanks, Baby Daley. Unfortunately, Illinois is one state that could NEVER stand on it's own. The same with Arizona. Nothing is produced here, it only consumes since all the "snowbirds" started fleeing the cold midwest winters.

Question: What do you call an intelligent Texan?






Answer: No-one knows.
