You sound like a "states rights" person after my own heart!

'course, we (along with ten other Southern states) used the same logic back in 1861, and it seemed to have met with some objections!

Note: The above was not intended to provoke a discussion of the War (there are other threads for that). Just a light- hearted comment intended in good spirits!

You know, if we were to become our own nation -- I'd like to wonder whether or not we'd see many more Texas flags hanging. LOL

No, Texas needs the USA a lot more than the US needs Texas.

I don't care one way or the other whether Texas becomes its own nation or not, but I have to ask... how do you figure that??? I can think of quite a few reasons why it would be the other way around!

As it's already been mentioned, the entire southwestern part of the country should become one.

Then perhaps we could have a government that would be serious about dealing with some of our problems

As to Texas - altho' I am a states-rights mentality, I would hate to see such a great land not being included in our country.
If they would go, I then thereby vote that the Ozarks become its own country too!

What in the flying sam hell will reading a book "about the world" do about changing a president's foreign policy as you suggest? Ill finish My Pet Goat once you finish See Jane Walk.
If the statement had meant that simply reading a book about the world would make a difference, then I'll read Jabne, but it wasn't a literal point of reading one book, or was the sentence too complicated?
