The whole problem with Texas seceding would be the influx of people from all the other states.

We sure don’t need that in Texas. We would need genuine immigration control.

That would be only one of the problems, of which there would be quite a few.

30% of the money in the Texas budget comes from the fed. Granted there are federal mandates that would be able to be scrapped, but that’s still a lot of scratch.

What does it cost these days to convert your state to its own country?

Well...

I may not have been born in Texas but I grew up there. I went to school (K-12) there. I learned about what real freedom is there (among other things).

I was dragged out of Texas kicking and screaming and Im still trying to find my way back there. I currently exist in Wisconsin and work in Chicago and Im suffocating here.

If Texas finally does the right thing and shrugs off the tyranny of this marxist fedgov, I will respectfully request re admittance as a native Texan who wants to come home.
