I live in Texas and if the seceding movement gains hold. I expect other states to follow suit. Montana comes to mind as well as Alaska. It wouldn't surprise me if Neuvo Leon would join Texas and leave Mexico.

Re: MSNBC: Should Texas leave the union?
what the fuck will exactly happen if they do?

I just found out about this today..been away from tv and computer the last few days.

I mean seriously? they aren't going to just become there own country or anything.

I assume they will still be under the same law of the land like every other state? right? or do they make up their own shit

Texas is a giant sage-brush infested dust bowl folks. There are a few nice areas, but most of it is nada, zip, squat and diddly. If you think you're going to be able to just find a nice little homestead in the New Republic of Texas, you've never been there.

I think they should be allowed to leave and all of their ancestors who fought to preserve the union can just haunt the haughty jack-alopes till hell freezes over

You seem to be the most ridiculous of them all. If thats what you think of Texas then YOU have obviously never been here, or you lived up in the Midland/Permian Basin area.

And to the other poster, yes, we can become our own country without having to abide by the laws of the US. We have before and can again

I have indeed been to Texas many times.
Yea, go and make yourself a new republic...try making it on your own like you did 150 years ago on cattle ranching. Back then your population was in the thousands not the millions and you don't have the resourses to feed everyone there.
Just remember that as a foreign country you no longer have the rights and protection of the US.

Mexico will just end up annexing Texas or at least half of it once it secedes.

Re: MSNBC: Should Texas leave the union?
Many Texans are total jerks. They are loud, obnoxious and while visiting other states often extremely rude. living in a state near them i have seen my fill of this behavior. They are welcome in my book to form their own country as long as they need a passport to get into the states AND they don't enjoy the rights of citizenship of the US in any way.

You are correct,sir.Where are you from,Iowa?

Re: MSNBC: Should Texas leave the union?
Texas alone would just about be viable, but texas with some other southern states would definately work.

Scrap that Texas has alot of the US oil doesnt it? It could hold the US' balls in an oily vice. It probably would be civil war since they cant afford to lose those resources. hiding

Re: MSNBC: Should Texas leave the union?
I'm from Texas and a distant cousin with the same surname died at the Alamo.

Before Texas became a state, Mexicans were still invading and the Comanches were still rampaging. Even the Germans were plotting to take over Texas. During the Civil War, the comanches pushed back the frontier 100-150 miles. It was the FEDERAL army that stopped the Comanches after the Civil War.

Not sure Texas could handle things even now considering the types of ignorant yahoos we have here. Yes, the western half of it is a jackalope wildlife refuge.

Re: MSNBC: Should Texas leave the union?
there's a point when the cons outweigh the pros of any situation. and texas is just at about that point with the usa imo.

I doubt most Texans feel that way.
 Quoting: Boomer


I live in Texas and the last few days have made a stink by daring to fax the White House, Ron Pauls office, the FDIC, and this is the short list! Chase Bank, and Credit One Bank(among others) are applying fees to small account holders; siezing funds they claim as fees, social security checks(which is a felony)marking fees as "merchandise" and "transactions" on the bill so it reflects a purchase instead of a fee. This has been ongoing since o8' but ESCALATED AFTER the bail out! The reporting agency told me themselves a)the complaints are in the 10's of thousands, b)it is small accounts and they are wiped out c)they can't do anything---but here's a list to report the instances to!
I make $1000.00 (1) payment a month, they took $800.00 out of my deposit..I have three kids and we litterally went hungry. I turned in the error on the statement, the deposit slip, the whole nine yards, indisputably it was an accounting error. But they have a policy--screw you!
Credit One just made the mistake of refusing a)to keep an agreement made by its own customer service b)refusing to remove a $29.00 fee for a $6.00 fee! I canceled them too.

Quite simply, I usually only use a card for emergencies. That is the way it is supposed to be. However these companies want you to pay monthly, so that they can add a monthly fee, plus a late feeif you dont pay the first fee on time. This is because they report the fee as income. In fact it is nearly 75% of their income--is unjustified "late fees" GARNISHED through what is commonly refered to as "creative accounting"(the fee of the fee...)
Chase just reported a $2.5? billion dollar first quarter PROFIT


They are raping the millions of Texans who simply don't make high wages. That little fee will literally lead to starvation of a great majority of working class poor--the majority of Texas. So I'm not so sure if standing up and saying "Look, we can't follow these crooks and call it leadership" then we might just have to say that vodoo word "secession". We might have to take a stand and say no. It usually involves a fight, either verbally or otherwise.

But the point is simply this, "if one man jumps off a cliff, do you jump too?"
