US Depression II...

will not be remembered as people working together. It will be death and destruction. If people will cause LA riots, if people will riot after they failed to adhere to a mandatory evacuation in New Orleans, if hundreds of students will storm Dallas city hall and thousands more protest for rights for illegal immigrants, then there is no limit to what is to be expected of all those who already expect too much from others.

Ozarka? This must be serious.







Seriously, though, I'm glad to see that other people are finally seeing what is in store for the future. Eventually, it will be all about the way you plan today.

Shit... y'all can probably come out on top no matter what the rest of the market's financial status is. For people to be losing money, someone's gotta be making it, right?

I think it's about time for Texas to secede.

That will never happen. Trust me, it'd be more of a headache anyway. Now if it would have always been it's own entity, I imagine we'd be well-off by now.

There's still a bunch of guys that pledge to the Republic of Texas .. they say there's a loophole that allows us to be our own country..

here

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Republic_of_Texas_(group)

Quote:
The movement for independence was started by the research of Richard Lance (Rick) McLaren. McLaren found that, in 1861, Texans voted four-to-one to leave the Union. According to McLaren's work, Texas met the qualifications, under international law, of a captive nation of war, since the end of the American Civil War in 1865. McLaren engaged in a protracted series of court and actual battles.

I heard it can be made into more states, but not separate into its own country. Here's a quote a little further down from that page:
Quote:
The annexation resolution has been the topic of some incorrect historical beliefs—one that remains is that the resolution granted Texas the explicit right to secede from the Union. This was a right argued by some to be implicitly held by all states at the time, up until the conclusion of the Civil War. The resolution did include two unique provisions: first, it said that up to four additional states could be created from Texas' territory, with the consent of the State of Texas. The resolution did not include any special exceptions to the provisions of the US Constitution regarding statehood. The right to create these possible new states was not "reserved" for Texas, as is sometimes stated. Second, Texas did not have to surrender its public lands to the federal government. While Texas did cede all territory outside of its current area to the federal government in 1850, it did not cede any public lands within its current boundaries. This means that generally, the only lands owned by the federal government within Texas have actually been purchased by the government. This also means that the state government has control over oil reserves which were later used to fund the state's public university system. In addition, the state's control over offshore oil reserves in Texas runs out to 3 leagues (10.357 miles, 16.668 km) rather than three miles (4.828 km) as with other states.
