Guilt is concerned with the past. Worry is concerned about the future. Contentment enjoys the present.

I, honestly, think it's absolutely ridiculous! I would like one person to find in our (Texas) constitution where it says Texas can secede. Does anyone seriously think that even if it were possible that it would be done peacefully?

I don't think it's even possible, financially. I don't care what numbers people give! Texas gets way too much federal money to secede...it would be BEGGING to be annexed back in. There's no way Texas would make it without having to raise taxes to the point where people wouldn't even be able to survive.

Disagree if you may, as is your right, but I think the whole idea is a bunch of crock. If people are that unhappy with our federal goverment then they have another option...find another country that is better than ours and become an expat.
Last Edit: 2 years 1 week ago by SmallTownGal.

The federal money we get for schools alone is huge. Then there's roads and highways, USDA, law enforcement, not to mention the military. It sounds like a good idea, but it is impossible in reality.

Just to add a bit more to the 'conversation', there are a total of 20 states talking about this. I think it's more of trying to send a 'wake up call' to Washington than actually leaving the US.

I didn't even read the story yet (but I will). I agree with Lighthouse -- this is all about trying to "send a message."

Like Dave said, no way this state could afford it in this day and time.

By the way, I may be a PROUD TEXAN -- but I'm also a PROUD AMERICAN.

I take BOTH very seriously!

We tried secession once -- it didn't last long. :dry:

The country is a little too big and we are a little too intertwined as a nation now. Plus, I'd rather fix America then leave. This is our country.

i think it's more of a "feel good" movement for those that disagree with how this country is being run. or maybe more like an "up yours" so to speak.

i just think don't like the idea of cutting and running. i don't think it's financially feasable for any state to secede from the union. i'm not even sure if it's legal for any state to secede from the union.
