    Why would they? The first thing they're going to do is stop funding NASA and all Federal military outlets in Texas which alone would completely end the Texas economy. Why does "Currency" even matter at that point? Texas would be in the equivalent of 500 great depressions.

    Not to mentioned Houston would be half burned to the ground by that point likely and Mexico might have annexed Southern Texas.

    I have no idea what scenario is playing out in your head.. but it's nothing like what I have in mind, nor the OP.

    No. Because Texas would be just another country we would have to send money to.

    Oh no yes that's all very apparent to me and others trust me. Rest assured. We know you have no idea.



    On a side note, if Texas were to secede the only likely way to do it would be with Russian and Chinese nuclear submarine tactical support via the Gulf of Mexico. That's the only way it could work and potential sustain more than a week. And I don't think that would or could work even. Otherwise any idea of Texas succession is delusioal and niave. You need foreign support from other powerful military nations.

    (All of this none of which your average "Secessionist simpleton" has even began to fathom on even a remote level (most of them aren't intellectually capable).

    I can't see that happening, as much as Texans fantasize about another civil war. The US government would arrest the leaders and then reincorporate Texas, or bring economic pressure to bear until they gave up.

    the thread isn't about a civil war.. it's about a peaceful and democratic secession.

    because we recognize the currency of every other nation on the planet.

    The nation would quickly call them on it and basically butch slap them for such an attempt. There is no reason anyone would recognize their sovereign currency, especially when any such attempt to secede would be challenged by the US government, which would lead many, if not all, US allies to refuse to recognize any such currency due to the fact that the commodity that that currency would be based off of would have to be presumed to not actually belong to Texas without recognizing Texas' sovereignty, something that would put them in opposition to the US.
