I always thought that Texas would be the one to seceed. We have a $1.32 trillion per year economy, we produce the most oil of any state in the nation
(the second most oil producing state, North Dakota, only produces half of what we do), we have a solid agricultural base and our own power grid. I
would totally support it.
I don't see Louisiana having a strong enough economic base to seceed on its own, but maybe I'm wrong.
Now....Texas and Louisiana leaving the union together would really be something!
I highly doubt our federal overlords would allow us to leave and take our oil and tax dollars with us. My husband, a native Texan, assumes that Texas
would be able to leave the US, and Uncle Sugar would give us a kiss on the forehead and wish us good luck. I told him, no way in Hades, the full
might of the US goverment and military would be all over us like white on rice, and reduce us to ashes, rather than see us leave peacefully.
I wish Louisiana all the luck in the world. This stunt won't work, but it may get more people thinking, which is always a good thing.
