    I'm sure we have all heard rumors about the movement within Texas to secede from the union and many scoff at the notion. However, with elections like the ones we just had, people tend to become more determined and purposeful.

    Just for fun, what would happen if Texas seceded? What would be the reaction of the federal monster in DC and what would become of the people of Texas? Many may not know this, but Texas governed itself for 9 years before becoming annexed by the US government.

    I always said that we should sell it to China to pay off the debt. Seriously, would you miss it?

    Ron White had the best idea, I think

    Actually the movement to secede has been around since 1995......and growing larger by the day.

    they did the same thing last time.

    it's pretty funny, imo.

    because if texas left the union, it would mean we wouldn't have to change the flag when puerto rico becomes a state.

    win/win

    I think it would devestate the Texas economy......at first. Then they could rebuild. It would be an Atlass Shrugged haven for the best and brightest in the US to run to, as well as an outsoursing megaheaven in the end.

    They could then start afresh as they cast off the chains of the two mega parties and return to state sovereignty as was originally the design before the Civil War changed things and the federal beast slowly took over all governing.
