    Funny as hell if we imposed a Cuban style trade embargo on those ten gallon hat wearing fags. Sit back and watch em all starve to death via CNN

    Texas would survive just fine. They have the most of the oil and refineries. Besides, don't we get most of our shit from China these days? The rest of the USA doesn't have much to offer.

    except grain, crops, livestock (its not coming from Texas), natural gas, coal, nuclear fuel, fresh water, iron ore, copper, most of the other minerals, grasslands

    texas going to do ok without a source of fresh water?

    texas needs the rest of us as much as we need texas.

    Texas would be just fine, bub. They would have plenty of cash to buy the things they don't have. Livestock, crops, water, natural gas? You're kidding with that part, right?

    not when we start taxing the sales. plus what is this cash? not US dollars. whats the exchange rate on Texas dollars going to be. they would have to get most favored nation status should they secede. all the rivers flow from the north down. we would be erecting new damns well within the new continental USA because well its our water.

    this is not a new thing: how much do you think confederate currency was worth in purchasing power once the south seceded last time? how much goods will they buy from abroad? how will it get there? how much will the tariffs be?

    your thinking is naive, kind of just like the voters in the UK Thursday.

    you think Texas is an island? Texas is land locked on 3 side with what would be a foreign navy 12 miles off its southern coast, dummy.

    I'm from NY but have lived in TX for 20 years. I'm so sick of people talking about this topic. Let's leave the union and we won't have problems. Um, no.

    no. i'm waiting for you to suggest other unbiased media sources. for example, the NYT, Breitbart, the Daily News.

    and if you add insults to your responses then don't be upset if i respond in kind.

    oh, the NYT, Breutbart, and the Daily News are "unbiased"?

    :jj:

    Get out of that shithole city once in a while and see how the rest of us live. It's really quite nice out here. I feel sorry for you city dwellers that know nothing except the same shit you see every day.
