I’m plotting a waterborne invasion to free Chicago.
Which ever state that promised the most government benefits. ;-)
Could California or New York turn their masses into an effective army using liberal leadership? Sure they can create mobs of people, but what happens when a bunch of Texans starts shooting at them?
Mexico.. 'Illegal inhabitants' in California and Arizona would join with Mexicans down south to overtake Southern California and parts of Arizona. Perhaps this was Eric Holder's plan when he sent thousands of assault weapons to Mexican drug cartels.
The big picture boils down to motivation.. I think Texas is best positioned, motivationally to combat ideology foreign to our Constitution. Are we outnumbered? Probably.
Texas... Big State, lot of financial resources, was previously a country, lots and lots of people with guns, succession mindset is widespread in the populace, very spread out - difficult for anyone to subdue, Texas has a huge water border and borders another country - Mexico. Texas has a state sponsored militia already (no not the NG we have the National Guard also)... Bring it on !!!
I think the scenario is entirely wrong; ultimate victory would hinge on whomever could form an alliance with North Dakota, South Dakota and Wyoming. More strategic and tactical nukes in those states than the rest of the country combined, thanks to the presence of three Air Force ICBM wings and two bomber wings. Other assets worth having would be the Trident sub bases in Georgia and Washington state.
He who can make the most—and largest—artificial sunrises wins.
Bismarck = our next national capital.
