“We are uniquely situated because we have energy resources, fossil and otherwise, and our own independent electrical grid. Generally speaking, we have made great progress in becoming an independent nation, an ‘island nation’ if you will, and I think we want to continue down that path so that if the rest of the country falls apart, Texas can operate as a stand-alone entity with energy, food, water and roads as if we were a closed-loop system.” – Texas Railroad Commission Chairman Barry Smitherman, who is running for Attorney General.
I have an idea! If Smiterman loses lets start a national petition to EXPEL Texas from the United States and then they can pay back the billions upon billions of dollars they have received in federal subsidies its received over the years.
don;t let the door hit your poor broke asses on the way out.
