Lone Star State Of Mind: Could Texas Go It Alone? : NPR
I believe the state could easily survive on its own.
It can not secede according to some, and can according to others.
I will not enter the fray as I am not a legal expert.
Texas Secede! FAQ
Texas would become part of Mexico.
If Texas left the Union?
I would apply for citizenship.
Do you speak Spanish?
Texas is almost all mexico already!!!
God, wouldn't that be sumethin............................ Tex seceded and Az followed. Hell YA!.
Yes, but I am not fluent in Spanish.
I am concentrating on Portuguese.
Portuguese? Hmmmmm. I could be seduced in that language.
I was shocked when we lived next to the Chens (Chinese family) that they all spoke Portugese, even the toddlers. Their families immigrated from China to Rio and then to US. The kids spoke Chinese and English too. They could cuss you out in 3 languages....no, they were well behaved and polite kids.
Can S. California come too......Orange county and south? Lots of republicans down here. All the nuts are north of here.
We in the north aren't stopping you.
Are you in CA.? I thought "quad cities" was an Iowa-Illinois thing.
I"ve been called a lot worse Please take Orange County with you. We'll keep , Alameda, Contra Costa, San Francisco,Santa Clara, Sonoma and San Mateo Counties
I really dont have a problem if the old confederacy/reb states leave. It is the sick ideology of the confederacy that dominates the repub party these days. Plus we can fix the debt problem because most of those states get more from the govt than they give. Bye bye.
I vist Texas a half a dozen time a year. They are for the most part their own country now. According to a Texan everything there is bigger (unless you remind them of Alaska ----which they don't like to hear) , better, faster, purdier, taller, better tasting, etc., etc., etc., than any other state. State pride is one thing but Texans take it to the next level. I'm always happy to get back to Minnesota and even though we have our share of cold weather and some mosquitos at least the damn ants don't bite. (ask the wife what happened the time she sat down on a fire ant nest while visiting Texas.)
Ahhh we tried this about 150 yrs ago and it didn't work out !!
Bet they wouldn't like losing half the electoral votes.
