    it'd be a good idea for Texas. look at Hong Kong!

    but not likely to happen. there's a bit of precedent there, re secession.

    is there anything preventing GWB from running for a third term? did the FDR amendment just restrict consecutive terms?

    the same as Scotland (or Ireland without the oil revenues, afaik).

    under the defense umbrella but not paying for it. and not paying for bureaucracies in those states where they tend to congregate. etc., etc., etc.

    Texas wouldn't last 2 weeks without the federal money pouring into the defense industries. Only California builds more bombs and planes than Texas. Aside from bombs and planes what else is built in America?
