Would Obama close the border with Texas??(Posted by I B Freeman on 11/13/12 at 3:55 pm)
This succession thing is fun to discuss even though it is a far fetched thing.
Texas could take it's citizens out from under the huge debt burdens of the US. They could drastically reduce welfare giving their citizens the opportunity to immigrate to Louisiana or New Mexico or Oklahoma if they still wanted huge welfare. They could provide essential services for far less than the population pays in federal income tax.
I suppose the question would be just would the US treat them? Would they close the borders?
