Louisiana would run the table with the control of that port.


The government could easily sieze control of all our ports. We'd also lose all our offshore drilling land.

They could basically do as they please. Considering they'd be the USA, the most powerful nation on Earth. We'd be a bunch of backwards rednecks either to racist or to ignorant to admit the president is not the anti-Christ. Or, God forbid, even admit he has been and will be a successful president.

You'd also have a rag-tag group of freedom loving rebels fighting to take their homes back. Not everyone in Louisiana is a far-right extremist.

And in a similar nose-thumbing aimed at Texas’ conservative majority, progressives from the liberal state capital of Austin responded Monday with a petition to secede from their state if Texas as a whole should decide to leave the Union.



Ohh lawd.

OI was responding to you. You started the embargo bull shite. You said the midwest would be screwed if La seceded. I'm saying the US (and midwest), could screw La by not letting trade come down. If you think the idea that anyone can just turn anything off is stupid, then your original statement is stupid.

If no trade comes down, and none can go up, it severely reduces the amount of trade coming in this port. There are a lot more ports that are more accessible that nola to baton rouge, where ships won't have to travel up a fricking river. Not to mention, I guess La will have to dredge the river itself so the ships can get in. My point is, if we left, all the federal govt has to do is literally not allow trade. I guess the entire midwest could also secede and join La. otherwise, the cheapest way out will be rail or other rivers.

This is stupid though. I am not even sure why we are having this discussion.

We become instant members of OPEC. Living the high life like Monte Carlo hoss. to me that would be a great thing.

The state controls the Oil valves for the Gulf. Let the fricking feds play their embargo game. It amazes me that the same people are against Wars and conflict are all jumping on board to go to basically war with Louisiana and other states like Texas. You can certainly pick out the liberal fricks in this thread. I believe the US has plenty of haters throughout the world that would help us

Yes, the enemy of our enemy is our friend. It would be ironic as shite if Obama got to declare Texas a member of the Axis of Evil.
