Anyone who knows my posts knows that I have said it since I've been a member of ATS. If Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas all seceded, the U.S.

As a native Texan, I feel that I can safely address this issue.
Has anyone actually thought about what would happen if Texas seceded? No military bases! No federal jobs! No federal money. Limited travel to rest of the states. Communication breakdown. If Texas were to secede, should the rest of the country place restrictions on Texans like we do Mexicans?
Knee jerk reactions and emotional solutions need to be carefully considered. Rev. Kilgore sounds like a fool.
Enough said. Yet another reason why this jerk should never be allowed to run for Governor in 2010. Gimme Chuck Norris instead!

Let us assume for the moment that John Titor had some predictive ability, time traveler or otherwise. Let us assume someone else wrote the text below, how would you rate his ability?
John Titor - Civil unrest
Titor also predicted that there would be civil unrest during or shortly following the U.S. Presidential election of 2004 that would gradually escalate into civil war in 2005. Titor wrote:
There is a civil war in the United States that starts in 2005. That conflict flares up and down for 10 years. Real disruptions in world events begin with the destabilization of the West as a result of degrading U.S. foreign policy and consistency. This becomes apparent around 2004 as civil unrest develops near the next presidential election. The civil war in the United States will start in 2004. I would describe it as having a Waco type event every month that steadily gets worse. The conflict will consume everyone in the U.S. by 2012 and end in 2015 with a very short WWIII. The President or "leader" in 2005 I believe tried desperately to be the next Lincoln and hold the country together but many of their policies drove a larger wedge into the Bill of Rights.

I think the US might just let them do it. Forcing them to survive on their own will probably teach them a lesson rather than forcing them to come back.
If they can do it and survive? Great.
If they can't then they come back on their knees begging to be back in.
Seems like a win win.

I recall the words of the Texas governor who commented that secession might be possible - even though he would not be the vox populi.
