I guess this must be the mandatory Bash Texas thread.
I apologize: In no way it was meant to get bash, just a discussion about Texas wanting to secede from the US and it's a possibility Texans can vote for their state to secede in 2018.

The movement makes it clear that Texans have never been true Americans or dedicated to this country.

And it's so boringly predictable. You could guarantee that after the Brexit vote, Texas would make the threats again. I would love it if President Obama requested funds to have Texas take a vote or have the country vote them off.

Tell Texas Governor Jade Helm it's no problem, we'll pay for the vote for you.

Some yes but not as much as you think and far less that many, maybe most states.

Here we go, we are #36 https://wallethub.com/edu/states-mos...vernment/2700/
as I thought. Texas is #29. Naturally it's the south that leads the pack.
Texas actually has some pretty steep grades out in Big Bend, but I get your point.

I'm in southeastern Arizona...very mountainous part of the state so I can relate.

There are a lot of good people in Texas, they should be duly compensated if Texas secedes and given moving expenses if they ask for them.

All the redneck, fire and brimstone, George W. Bush supporting morons are free to go and I'm pretty sure a lot of Americans really don't care if they leave. The Cowboys will no longer be "America's Team", that title goes to the Green Bay Packers.

Good luck, Texas!

I'm not paying for Texans to move to the U.S. I'm trying to keep them from moving to my state, why would I pay for their move? That would be insane.

264004 TEXANS HAVE ALREADY PLEDGED THEIR VOTE FOR TEXAS INDEPENDENCE!

Texas secession has been talked about forever. It will never happen, but it's fun to think about.

Pledge Your Vote For Texas Independence
I don't think you understand what I'm saying: If Texans are smart enough to reject secession and leave on their own free will, they should be compensated by the Free State of Texas for the adjustment and cost of moving to the United States.

Like everything else, they will have to go through the normal immigration rules (fast tracked, of course) and your state can choose to limit the number of Texans moving into it if they choose.

In this fashion you will see fewer residents moving in from Texas (which they can freely do now) and you won't have to pay a cent to help them relocate.

Thanks for the clarification, yes, that would definitely work for me. We need to stop the Texan immigration and secure the borders.
