    Re: Texas secession?

    Considering that Texas gets $1.25 for every $1.00 then send to Washington, they would be idiots to think of succeeding. Of course Texans aren't known for their smarts.

    They would trade. Denying a trading partner is willingly giving up on wealth for no good reason.

    And we are well beyond the 19th century. We have this thing called a global economy now, England isn't going to risk damaging relations with the US by supporting a secessionist state.
    And England eventually gave in and decided to trade with us.

    And likewise, they won't do business with us if they believe it will cause them to lose other markets.

    With the United States, not Texas.

    Thanks. It's the reason I voted 'anytime they want'. I always thought the big mistake we made after the Civil War was allowing the Rebel states back into the union. I'm glad the war was fought, because the result of that war was the freeing of slaves and the end of slavery, but I would have had no problem with simply letting the defeated southern states do whatever the hell they wanted - other than bringing back slavery. I think the rest of the country would have been better off with that solution.

I can think of a whole lot of reason Texas couldn't pull out of the union. But, I'll leave it here. Let your critical thinking skills be your guide. Hint: Just think of all the types of expenses it take to run a country.
    I think your analyis is a good one.

I'm also sure people would leave by the thousands, and that's minimal damage. Then we have the Mexico issue. Trade could be worked out to some degree, but I don't think it would be enough. Texas isn't very well received in the majority of states, and even less abroad. It's in our best interest to stay with the Union.
    You'd lose all of your citizens who considered themselves Americans first and Texans second. Of course you'd gain all of those anti-government people - the ones who don't believe in a central government or in strong goverment at all. Lots of luck with that approach in the 21st century. I think the rest of the country comes out ahead in the population exchange, too.

    Re: Texas secession?

    I would like very much for Texas to secede, or be removed, regardless of what happens to the US dollar or anything else. So yes, go right ahead

    Re: Texas secession?

    I not only would be okay with Texas voluntarily leaving the union; I think we should kick Texas out whether they want to go or not.
