It’s not treasonous to peacably petition the government for secession.
If Texas goes, it needs to take a bunch of other states with it because having it out of the Union would mean permanent Democrat control of the remaining 49 states into eternity. I’d like to see the South as a whole peel off.

Like I've said before, at this point this is merely mental exercise. In the near future, who knows.
Anyway... Not Florida and Virginia. I'd say Oklahoma, Louisiana, maybe Arkansas, maybe Mississippi and New Mexico, although the poverty in Mississippi would potentially be a drag on the new nation. Tennessee is just too far--no way would the government allow a new country to reach that deep into its heartland and partially sever the old US. The new country would also have to claim a fair chunk of the guld for the oil and such. A strong alliance with Alaska (hey, if Texas why not Alaska, its plenty big and far enough away) would also be good, allowing access to northern areas.
Yes, that is the catch 22 conservatives always find themselves in. As a conservative do you stick it out in a liberal state to have a voice, or do you flee, but then leave even less conservatives in that state?
As I see it, in time, as hispanics outnumber whites in Texas, that Texas will go Democrat anyways.

I have been saying for the past four years that we need to be divided into two separate countries. North and South. I am very serious.
