Poof, out of thin air... not happening bro, because the second we secede, all support from our neighboring states is out. That also means no help from the Border Patrol and US Customs, no TSA, just to see family or friends that live in another state, you'll need a passport. Texas would sink faster than Exxon-Valdez. I don't want that, I don't think you do, either. Secession is stupid. We need to be working with our neighbors, instead of thinking **** everyone else because we're the BEST OF ALL TIME EVAR!!!11!!!!!! because we're not. We rely on the US just as much as they rely on us.

    Reverse the question. How is the Fedgov going to repay the Lone Star Republic for all the tax revenues they've taken from same for the past hundred years?

    It works both ways.

    Nope.
    Texas has already been given services and benefits for the taxes they paid in in past years. They are owed nothing. They would however owe lots to the federal government in the way of national debt share.

    So it's OK to call "those guys" red necks, bull**** things, wife beaters, an embarassment, bunch of crackers, white trash; but we can't call you guys ******* **** ******** ***********? That hardly seems fair.

    That's the overly simplified romanticized verision, but they had the full non-military support of the US. No troops, but plenty of support. Crack a book on the subject.

    seriously now, if the USA got rid of all the States that get more money than they pay in taxes, and are full of right-wing extremists, the USA would be much better off.

    ...just like Congress took on the cumulative debt of the 13 Colonies when the US was formed.

    Something tells me that when that balance sheet is added up, Texas would come out on the short end.

    Isn't it amazing what can happen in a thread? How quickly it can go totally off-topic?

    Such is life in the forums, my friend.

    Regardless, my challenge still stands for anyone willing to take it. Show where the founders intended the introduction to add power and create a country were no one was able to leave. Considering the deal the states were given when they joined this should be fun to watch people try to figure it out.
