Texas is preparing to secede from the union and become an “independent nation” if the U.S. continues to “fall apart.”
So the conversation of succession is still on going and could be serious.

Barry Smitherman, Texas’ Railroad Commissioner and candidate for Attorney General said, “Generally speaking, we have made great progress in becoming an independent nation, an ‘island nation’ if you will, and I think we want to continue down that path so that if the rest of the country falls apart, Texas can operate as a stand-alone entity with energy, food, water and roads as if we were a closed-loop system.”

In the interview, Smitherman noted that Texas “has been very strong leading in the charge against the Obama administration” and that Texas is advantaged to secede because it’s “uniquely situated because we have energy resources…and our own independent electrical grid.”

While many Texans are viewing this preparation as controversial, Americans are saying that Texas secession would radically shake up the American political landscape.

If it weren't for their reliance on federal funding, I'd believe that.
Texans would like to think of themselves as a whole other country , but as long as they're reliant on Federal moneys acquired in the systematic process of persecuting their own citizens, it's all a bunch of horseshit.

However, if Texas were to succeed then democrats would control the government indefinitely. They have too many electoral votes and Republicans could never win. Because of this one succession would lead to another and it would cut off the west coast liberal states. Ultimately Texas could not secede as the whole nation would dissolve into regional governments. Not saying that is a bad thing as every corporate reorganization tends to be positive in the markets.

Not even close. Better take another look.Texas government is heavily dependent on federal funding, mainly because of the expense of persecuting it's own people unconstitutionally. We have more people in prison per capita than any government in the world, bar none, and it's not because the crime rate is higher here than anywhere else. At any given time in my county of 30,000 alone, over 300 are under indictment for felony crimes. Grand juries are rubber stamp, and the due process of law is totally ignored. It's all about corruption, kickbacks and federal funding. There is hardly a kid under 30 that has not been put through the system, and so many are "on paper" that if that income were to be withheld, the local county governments would collapse under the wieght of their own abuses.

WRONG! Texas only gets back 96 cents on every dollar given to the Feds. There would be a 4 cent SURPLUS if they were to separate.

Now some of our neighbors to the left (NM) have taken the idea behind the phrase "sucking off the government teat" to a new level receiving far more in excess of what they give so that extra 4 cents should probably go to secure border patrol.

Not that I, as a Texan, would support such a thing... That's what I'm supposed to say, right?

Bullshit! They would not nuke dick. They would not harm the resources of Texas. They'd try to take it back conventionally. Of course, they'd have to cross Oklahoma and Arkansas most likely. Good fuckin' luck with that, in that scenario.

It really simple, you don't want secession, fire the Mocha Wonder and the 545 Mob. Otherwise, I think we are all in a world of fuckin' hurt because these movements are growing fast!

I'm not advocating it, but I can certainly empathize with the frustration!

I think if Texas actually made a declaration of secession, then the Feds would nuke the place.

You're the one full of horse shit. Texas pays the federal thugs MORE in taxes than they get back. Fuck off, shill!
 Quoting: Interdimensional warrior 48008806

Not even close. Better take another look.Texas government is heavily dependent on federal funding, mainly because of the expense of persecuting it's own people unconstitutionally. We have more people in prison per capita than any government in the world, bar none, and it's not because the crime rate is higher here than anywhere else. At any given time in my county of 30,000 alone, over 300 are under indictment for felony crimes. Grand juries are rubber stamp, and the due process of law is totally ignored. It's all about corruption, kickbacks and federal funding. There is hardly a kid under 30 that has not been put through the system, and so many are "on paper" that if that income were to be withheld, the local county governments would collapse under the wieght of their own abuses.

Read up on it.

No shill you read up on it. Stop spouting BS propaganda from some progressive website that has always gotten their facts wrong.

We have far FEWER federal employees per capita than states half our size. While it is true local municipalities choose to operate as stand alone communities and employ their own police, fire, isd, library etc... You cannot equate that as government employment in the way you are trying. And btw while I don't like it, our prisons are overcrowded with the felons of other states. We could drop them back home no problem.

And this high crime rate you speak of (which you greatly overstated and misrepresented) will go away as soon as jones figures out he won't be allowed to live on the dole anymore. Sorry Houston - swim to the bayou again. Did you mention btw the correlation between generously accepting Katrina immigrants and the crime wave? We won't make that mistake again.

If you are a Texan I am ashamed to be neighbors. Yes, folks unfortunately we do have some unbelievably stupid liberal non thinking liberty hating fucks down here.

Dude, if you you use facts to support your position I have no problem with you but you can't spout off half truths to bank yourself up.

Edit: add to say this "paper" money you speak of is already factored in the to the 96% return I stated in an earlier post. Economic numbers would exponentially rise once these programs are refactored.

And btw I am not advocating succession - we need to fix America not destroy it and succession would screw everyone.
