Your knee jerk reaction is to look for reasons why not, and not for reasons why. Gotta change that.
Social Security? Oh, that $900 per month that some people get, the one that requires 15% of everyone’s income to be withheld? So what if Texans no longer have to put FIFTEEN percent of their income into Social Security? You think the state might be able to cover whatever “losses” might result from no longer being in line for the Federal Government’s table scraps? C’mon.
No I’m all for state’s rights and I believe that it will take a state like Texas declaring independence to reclaim our freedoms. It’s just the logistics of the deal are so different because the Fed government in 1860 had virtually none of the ties that bind them with states today.
That is why a state realistically needs to first pass it’s own “honest money” bill and allow/or create a commodoties backed State currency first, when economy has been built SS will no longer be necessary!
