  1. Oh, Texas. Full of the conceit they could just be their own nation. Maybe it can, but literally they went screaming into the US’s bosom after their independence so they could continue to own people. And I’m not up on the Texas secessionists so maybe they’ll try it soon? It’s not like their underfunded and dilapidated power grid failure is going to deter anyone.

    I wonder how much people underestimate how a larger nation serves as an escape valve for bad state governments. Florida, for example would have to tax the bejesus out of everyone to pay for hurricane repairs. California would have to repeal that infamous housing tax law so they could pay for things like…fighting fires and earthquakes. What would Louisiana even do?
