Way to go Texas

All the news from the peanut gallery and where all the nasty trash talk fails miserably.
It can get NSFW-ish here: you have been warned!

Well, Texas did secede that one time and only 15 years after joining. It did not work out very well. :lol:

Myth/ We can't. The only thing extra we were allowed when we joined was the option to split into up to 5 separate States. Of course, at that time we claimed half of present day NM/Colorado and way up to Montana.
But only with the approval of the federal government. That is, can't split on their own volition, legally.

Of course, this whole notion is bullshit and saber rattling. First thing off, that means if Texas decides to become its own country (again, since the feds in the 1830's didn't want it as a state), its citizens are no longer Americans, and have no rights and liberties of acting as Americans. The US Constitution no longer applies to Texas and its citizens. As a country, all international (since Texas will be outside the bounds of the USA, it's now an international state) agreements have to be renegotiated. Mexico (and Canada) may decide you need a visa to enter their countries, which is not needed by Americans. And they provide no mechanism to obtain one. Extra points if the US govt also decides to implement an entry visa. Crossing the Sabine or the Red River won't be so easy.

Right off the bat, Texas is going to need income, a lot of it, and that means taxes. No more funds from DC, Texas is on its own for the cash to run its new state. All new treaties with the same countries the US had treaties with, but without the power of the US to make those treaties. Those lucrative military bases, potentially gone. O yea, you hate the federal govt, but love the money those bases make. You have to come up with your own constitution, what are the articles that make it up? I really don't think a single person in Texas has the real political will to make succession actually happen. Just more hot air out of a state full of it.
I thought California was the state known for talking about secession?
Last I heard, Eastern Washington State wanted to join with Idaho and leave the Western part.

All pointless cuckoo stuff.

Yup. One of the more recent ideas I've heard about would be to split both Washington and Oregon along the mountain range and making western Washington and Oregon one state and the eastern halves another. This sounds like a better plan to me personally.

Sounds like the western side of the new state will be CA lite, and the other WY heavy.

Maybe we can get them to take the Eastern side of our state too. It would suck to lose Tahoe but they can have Death Valley, Barstow, and the Salton Sea. Palm Springs can be a western protected region like the Gaza Strip.

If they are transporting migrants again in trailers, that just tells you that Texas is being successful on protecting our border. Since the Feds won't.

Uh oh. The democrats are going to go ballistic. That's the biggest mass killing in the history of Texas I think. And all because policies are making it inviting for migrants to put their lives into the hands of drug cartels for safe passage. If that gun bill was hurried, imagine the speed they will react to stopping these border crossings. Get ready. AOC is probably on both knees crying right now. Right before she goes to work on some legislation to end this.
