While you are saying go and leave, what many do not see is the ramifications of said actions and the mess that it will make. Be it for good or bad,
the problems with this are staggering as many of the states economies are so intertwined with each other it could be far more worse than either side
imagines. While many would hold those exact same sentiments as you do, did any one actually think about what would happen?
If we think things are bad now, to do such, would have a far more drastic effect on the US economy, so Texas may go, but then again, how about those
gas prices, as now there would be an increase fee at the pump for such. And what about imports from other countries or even exports, are many so
willing to pay the additional costs for such, as the ports would have to impose additional taxes and fees for use. And then there is the other costs,
such as for energy and other items, including medications and other innovations that would require something from a state that produces it locally.
Ultimately if anything this should be a wake up call to the federal government that the people are tired of a government that is no longer
representative of the people, and that special interest have run roughshod for far too long. Many people have to live on a budget, yet the people in
the halls of power either are choosing to ignore that fact or outright overspending and thinking it is ok to do such. And what happens when those
debts are due, borrow and hope? That did not get us very far so far, and is causing more and more problems.
And then there is the geopolitical aspect of all of this, many countries would be circling like vultures waiting to strike, the world is getting to be
a dangerous place, and such has to be handled delicately, lest more radical elements decides that a more direct approach is needed.
