My husband and I have wishfully discussed that possibility. Texas has always put Texas ahead of the US, bragging about how they are the only state ever to be an independent nation. If people in Germany or France ask an English speaking person where they are from, Britts say Great Britain, people from the various English colonies in India or the Islands will say their nation, all Yanks say the US, and Texans say Texas. Expecting that everyone knows Texas, so the Germans get this funny look on their face and say, but you sound like an American. Yeah, I saw that happen more than once while we lived in Germany. Texans are kind of like General Robert E Lee, who didn’t want Virginia to secede, and was asked to be in charge of the Union forces. But he put his loyalty to Virginia ahead of his loyalty to the US and when the Confederates asked him to head up their armies, he agreed. So, yeah, Texas has never been loyal to the US, only Texas. So, no loss.Hagoth wrote: ↑Sat Aug 27, 2022 4:54 pmIt would be a very short civil war.
I kind of like the plan that I heard proposed on the radio a couple of years ago by a white nationalist. Texas secedes from the union and it becomes a MAGA nation where all of the militiamen and Confederacy patriots can congregate and no one one would have to tolerate any of those damned liberal ideals. You know, a place where you can worship the hell out of Jesus without any pressure to do any of that sissy bleeding heart stuff he was always going on and on about.
And Facebook could put up a house exchange and Trumpers in California and New York could agree to exchange homes with liberals in Texas.
Maybe if Texas doesn’t give the conservatives enough room, we could let New Mexico, Arizona, Florida, Mississippi, Georgia and Louisiana all join Texas. They have all lost their collective minds. Then they can build a 20 foot wall on the Border of Mexico and shoot anyone they catch crossing. That would make Texas happy. Arizona and Florida as well as the idiots who elected that blond bimbo have all gone quite nuts too. And I would let the damned state that is responsible for McConnell go too.
Having lived in both Florida, Arizona, and Texas, I am really shocked at how far off the deep end those states have gone. And well, Mississippi was always kind of nuts. Back in 1971, we lived in some old slave quarters out back of a Southern mansion just a mile from Jefferson Davis’s mansion in Biloxi Miss. We were warned by the US Air Force to never go into town while in Uniform, because the anti war thing was too big of a thing, and for whites to always be careful what part of town we were in, and for blacks to stay the blank out of white neighborhoods, and well, everyone, just stay out of down town after dark. Confederate flags were more common than at Trump rallies, and well, Mississippi was always just a bit nuts. So, that would be no loss to the US.
The New Confederacy, or maybe they could call it the Republic of Republicans. They could just use the same old Confederate flag, elect Trump as president, Desantis as Vice. He is very good at vice already. They could compete with Mexico for a corrupt government. They could use the various militias as their standing army. The proud boys could be secret service. They could keep pretending there is no climate change. That would make Texas happy, as well as rich.
Then karma could get them as global warming takes the temperature up of Southern states to 150 F.
