    Why would we want to? You seem to be assuming secession as something violent.
    Are those resources the sole property of Texas or The United States of America?

    I said potential. They have the state and private owned infrastructure, as well as the materials and skilled labor to manufacture such things on their own. Every currently existing American military installation is property of the US military.

    The nation of Texas would by necessity have to start out occupied by the US military, and substantially so.
    Trust is knowing someone or something well enough to have a good idea of their motivations and character, for good or for ill. People often say trust when they mean faith.

    The name "United States" becomes more of an oxymoron each day.

    Can you hear me, Major Tom? I think I love you.

    I'd hate to see the dis-United States fall into the kind of perpetual warfare that plagued the dis-united countries of Europe for most of their history, but people can be dumb, and generally fail to learn anything but facts from history.
    Every moment of a life is a horrible tragedy, a slapstick comedy, dark nihilism, golden illumination, or nothing at all; depending on how we write the story we tell ourselves.

    Sort of a moot point when it's only the crazy ones that want to secede.
    “You have never answered but you did not need to. If I stand at the ocean I can hear you with your thousand voices. Sometimes you shout, hilarious laughter that taunts all questions. Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."
    ~~Stephen Jay Gould, Wonderful Life: The Burgess Shale and the Nature of History

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett

    When my Texan family members come to visit, they always make jokes about how backward Kentucky is. I never get it, and this is why.

    Have fun seceding with the two of the largest cavalry and artillery installations in your borders. I know the Amarillo Good ol' Boy Patriot Militia just got sponsered by the local bar and are ready to rise again.

    Good luck Texas!

    Oh, are those Texas military installations? Pretty sure when I was stationed in Texas we worked on Federal installations, got paid by the Federal government and had a Commander and Chief from Hawaii.

    Sorry, the military capabilities you speak of are not Texas military capabilities but United States military capabilities.

    The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant compared to the power of the Force.

    Re: Texas,Really? I ponder what Texus will do next?

    Well they have the State Guard which appears to be distinctly theirs and not as easy to federalize as national guard units are but if Texas wants to turn its State Guard into a defensive organization that can operate without the US military standing right behind it ready to eradicate anyone who looks cross-eyed at Texas than someone is gonna have to foot the bill for a rather large expansion and I see no reason for the US to do so.
    "It is not simply enough to know the light…a Jedi must feel the tension between the two sides of the Force…in himself and in the universe."
    ―Thon

    "When to the Force you truly give yourself, all you do expresses the truth of who you are,"

    Yoda

    Yoda told stories, and ate, and cried, and laughed: and the Padawans saw that life itself was a lightsaber in his hands; even in the face of treachery and death and hopes gone cold, he burned like a candle in the darkness. Like a star shining in the black eternity of space.

    Yoda: Dark Rendezvous

    "But those men who know anything at all about the Light also know that there is a fierceness to its power, like the bare sword of the law, or the white burning of the sun." Suddenly his voice sounded to Will very strong, and very Welsh. "At the very heart, that is. Other things, like humanity, and mercy, and charity, that most good men hold more precious than all else, they do not come first for the Light. Oh, sometimes they are there; often, indeed. But in the very long run the concern of you people is with the absolute good, ahead of all else..."

    John Rowlands, The Grey King by Susan Cooper

    "You come from the Lord Adam and the Lady Eve", said Aslan. "And that is both honour enough to erect the head of the poorest beggar, and shame enough to bow the shoulders of the greatest emperor on earth; be content."

    Aslan, Prince Caspian by CS Lewis
