Secession may be our best move. Frankly, it depends on the reaction to tomorrow's "outcome" (I believe Hillary was chosen in 2008 when she stepped down for Obama, there was never really an "election", just theater for the masses). If Patriots are willing to fight for their country from coast to coast, we're in. If they're willing to succumb without a fight, and the survival of Texas depends on separating from a diseased and dying body, then it would be in our best interest to secede.
And I know there are those who will argue we can't survive without the United States. Here's a few sobering statistics on where we'd stand as a sovereign nation:
25% of the nation's oil reserves
33% of the nation's natural gas reserves
95% of the country receives its oil and gas from pipelines that originate in Texas.
Leads nation in production of cattle, sheep, hay, goats, cotton. We ain't going hungry or nekkid.
During the Obama Recession, the Texas economy expanded by 1 million jobs, more than all the other states combined. Which is why so many whiny Democrats run here after ruining their states' economies.
Home to more Fortune 500 companies than any other state
13th highest GDP in the world (as a nation)
The only state with its own power grid.
Covers most of the state and is fully state controlled.
DC can't turn out our lights.
In terms of formal military, we're no match for Uncle Sam's fire power, but we ain't harmless either.
Texas State Guard, answers only to the Governor.
Texas National Guard, Air Guard, and the Legendary Texas Rangers (One Riot, One Ranger).
Two of the nation's largest military bases lie within our borders. Fort Hood and Fort Bliss contain massive amounts of armament and soldiers who may be more like us than they are like Hillary.
And we're not even going to mention the armed private citizens.
We've done it before, twice. Once to become a sovereign nation, and once to join the Confederacy. And before you throw the loss of the War of Northern Aggression at us, stop. We didn't lose that war. Not one square foot of Texas was ever under Northern control, and we were still fighting months after Lee surrendered at Appomattox. Some of us, more than a century later, still don't recognize that defeat. We love Texas and we love a good fight. That's something to keep in mind.
So keep Davy Crockett's immortal words in mind after tomorrow night:
"You may all go to Hell and I will go to Texas."
