That is an excellent observation. I, for one, would like nothing m,ore than to see Texas become it's own nation. I have read that we are one of the few states with possibly enough natural, financial, and other resources to survive and if we were to secede, I have no doubt whatsoever it would embolden others to take steps in that direction. Hopefully it would create a sense of urgency as well as responsibility.
So, the natural extension of this thread: I have an eleven year old. Politically, what type of world will he grow up in? Assuming our species will not self destruct, will we be forced into submission or forced into rebellion? Could we possibly survive as is or close to it? What other countries are likely to disappear or be created before he turns 20, 40, or 50? I also have a 28 year old daughter who lives a frantic and stressful life in D.C. As cruel as it may sound to some, if we were to have a nuclear war at least I don't have to worry about her suffering as she would likely be one of the first to go. But is she in danger simply because of the political climate as well? Will she experience civil war to the point of violence against the innocent?
Forgive my rambling, but these are things my family have openly discussed for years and I would love outside input and there is no better place than ATS!! Thanks,---Sam
