homelessdude: I am strongly considering a donation to this PAC if it can be determined that is not a hoax.

After the past decade (and especially the last few years), I would be very satisfied hearing the phrase The 49 United States of America if this PAC was actually able to accomplish its goal..


Do you want to be the one to pay for airlifting books and vegetables into Austin?


Britney Spear's Speculum: List Of People Conspiring Against The GOP, And Therefore, America (LOPCATGOPATA for short):


I've said it before and I'll say it again. I want to be on this list. Source is this thread and every other post I have written over the years in the Politics tab. Plus a few in sensible tabs.

hubiestubert: Good luck with that.

Just to be clear: even IF you could vote yourself out, that would mean that Fort Hood, Fort Bliss and the other pieces of US Federal property would either have to be bought, and cleared out. The US taxpayers paid for said property, not just the "sovereign state of Texas" so there would have to be time for a LOT of equipment to be moved, and what couldn't be, would have to be bought and paid for. That, or Texas would have US military bases within its borders, much like other nations have US military bases. There is also the matter of the Coast Guard, Air Force, the Federal buildings and the like. Texas, I suppose, could try to claim them, but that would likely trigger a less than appealing response from the folks who actually paid for the suckers. While Texas is all for taking over the facilities, I wonder how eager they are to take over the Federal prisons. Or take over responsibility for EPA sites...


I suspect the secessionists are assuming they could simply take over control of federal property within their borders, but they won't have a General Twiggs available this time to hand it all over to them. There are far more "northern" troops stationed in Texas these days than there are soldiers (not to mention senior officers) from states that, theoretically, might be sympathetic to secession. It would be a ready-made army of occupation.

Duke Phillips' Singing Bears: F*CK! secede. Dammit. dammit dammit dammit.


For them, wouldn't success be defined by seceding? So your successive posts were unnecessary. But I digress.

Can't just they pack their shiat up and leave? I hear Somalia doesn't have much government intervention.

It would also depend on the exchanges of troops as well and the negotiation of final settlement if its a easy political solution

Hard solution is you just take it

But secession takes work either way
