Think about how different secession was in 1860 and how it would be now. The states (not Texas) have become so intertwined with the Federal government. For example, if I live in a state that secedes, does the Federal government just keep what I paid into social security? What about people that still live in the state-would what remains of the Federal government freeze their social security, medicare and medicaid that they’ve become attached to like leeches? What would become of the Federal military complexes that are scattered throughout the country?
This was a tongue-in-cheek comment right? You have no $$$ in SSI now...it is a con game....
If you haven't already retired you're probably not going to get it anyway. Think of how much more money you'd have if Fedzilla wasn't devouring a big chunk of your paycheck.

Let em leave or become productive citizens.

There are federal military complexes all over the world. Why would this have to be different?
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.
Hasn't anyone noticed the modern Communists speak of Lincoln with approval?
The wealth that would move to Texas would be outstanding. Professionals, business, billions of dollars, etc. They could do it and hurt the Washington a22hats big time. Sure it would be hard at first, but within a short time Texas would be the richest Country in the World. Texas has a military now, every branch of the Service. They could give those Federal units a choice, join Texas or get the hell out. America is gone.
