This is a thread based on purely speculation.
Right now, the Texan bid for freedom has over 100,000 signatories (could've changed in the last day or two) which is quite astounding considering
only 25,000 signatures are needed to bring the matter to the attention of the Federal Govt.
The Federal Government already have the Patriot Act, NDAA et al, which allows them to lift you off the street and placed into indefinite detention
centres for being a suspected terrorist.
We have seen the U.S. oil wars (Iraq, Afghanistan [securing the pipeline from the Caspian sea] and most recently, Libya) and some of you should be
familiar with how the dollar works (petro-dollar).
"How is this relevant?" you may ask. Well, Texas currently controls approx. 1/4th of all oil on the U.S. mainland, and a further 1/3rd of all gas on
the U.S. mainland. Quite a lot of the pipelines bringing oil into the U.S. from S. America also run through Texas. So, what happens if Texas leaves?
Will the pipelines be removed, will there be charges for running them over sovereign territory?
I believe that if Texas DOES secede (which it seems like to do, as they have threatened to leave the union twice, and followed through on their
threats. Also, I remember a Texan Judge threatening civil war if Obama was re-elected, can't find the thread though) we will be treading a very fine
line, which could lead to the Police State that so many conspiracy theorists fear. But, another part of me wonders; What if the "Shadow Govt" knows
people will be watching and allow this breakaway to hurt the reputation of self proclaimed "truthers"?
Is Texas' break away part of a wider plan, or is it a set back for TPTB?
