As far as I am aware, the debt is a Federal Debt. All $16 trillion of it.
Could Texas get out of it if they decide to secede?
Texas as a stand alone nation makes alot of sense.
Texas as a stand alone nation would be ranked 15th in the world for GDP. The only state in America with a higher GDP is California but they cant
manage an economy like Texas can. Texas would be much better off being its own nation.
Here are some words from a good Texan.
Here in Texas, we are not as divided as the USA. We think the USA is about to split up or spend a long time tearing itself apart over the problems
of the last Civil War, which was basically Northern Liberals versus the South, where people wanted states to have more ability to determine their own
future; the Northern liberals wanted to force us to do what they saw was right, not what we knew was right in our own hearts.
A free and independent Texas is a good idea. We have land, industry, and most importantly, we have good people. We have a chance to break away from
the death-trap that is the United States. People know that, and so they have created a big illusion to distract us: the argument that our secession is
legal because the annexation of Texas was never legal.
A petition asking the US Government to allow Texas to secede was rejected by the White House last week. Here is some of the rejection.
“Our founding fathers established the Constitution of the United States ‘in order to form a more perfect union’ through the hard and
frustrating but necessary work of self-government,” Mr. Carson wrote. “They enshrined in that document the right to change our national government
through the power of the ballot — a right that generations of Americans have fought to secure for all. But they did not provide a right to walk away
The Federal Government just told the States that they cant walk away from the Union even if they want to. American States do not have the right to
walk away. America is alot like a mafia or gang. American states are being held hostage by the tyrannical Federal Government. Nothing has changed.
Funny how the Federal Government likes to use the Founding Fathers when it suits them. Maybe Texas should remind them of the 2nd.
I am pretty sure that if Texas can secede then they will not have to pay any of the Federal Governments massive and scary $16 trillion National Debt.
Texas didnt create the debt so why are Texans propping up a corrupt Federal Government and fixing their mess for them? Could America pay without the
massive Texan GDP? America needs Texas but Texas does not need America.
Texas could stand alone but I am sure other states/nations would join it. The red states are not happy. A union of Patriot States is entirely
possible. The Patriot States could give themselves a new start and protect themselves from the federal government by breaking away and forming a union
of American Patriot States.
