    this is an academic exercise... no need to get bent out of shape or claim the sky will fall... or that Texas will turn into North Korea.

    Believe as you will...

    My reference to North Korea is strictly to point out the cost of the citizens to be under a government that can't support the infrastructure...ain't good.

    Uh huh...sure..well, just give it a try to figure out exactly all of the resources necessary for the independent Texas, or any state would need beyond it's own capabilities should it secede. The results would speak for themselves.

    tell me..why you think Texas would just collapse.

    do you really think the people of Texas are that weak, and cannot stand on their 2 feet?

    It doesn't matter about the GDP stats. That can change overnight - when enough financial/economic restrictions are imposed on Texas by the US.

    Think of it this way. If Texas was the largest producers of Widgets in North America Continent...but one tiny part necessary for the Widgets to function came from a source within the US...guess what could/would happen?

    it's your opinion that the infrastructure can't be supported... certainly not fact.

    as to whether or not they can....well, you are forgetting about the very nature of being a sovereign currency issuer that comes with nationhood....I can speculate that infrastructure could be maintained superior to how it is now and be just as correct as you are.

    why do you believe sanctions/restrictions will be inherently levied against Texas?

    if Texas becomes a nation, it is assumed it was an amicable split.... if it wasn't amicable, the US would invade and capture Texas and the secession wouldn't be successful in the first place.

    Texas cannot support its own military, healthcare system, education system, highway systems, agriculture needs, etc, etc, etc...for any length of time without the types of assistance it gets from the Federal government.
