I can seriously imagine a Texas vote going through for the state to leave the union after the successful Brexit vote. If anything, the Brexit vote has given the movement a massive amount of appeal to help it spread throughout Texas.
The economic fallout for the United States would not go well. Texas' economy alone, for one thing, is larger than that of many countries across the world.
There would need to be new laws written, new trade agreements disputed and resolved, and billions of dollars spent.
Economically, it's probably a terrible choice.
Do Texans care? We'll have to see.
I don't recall posting any meme's but okay. I don't think using a reference through typing is considered a meme unless you use a photo in contribution to the statement or action but maybe that's just me.

If Texas did pull through with this act and did actually leave the state it would send a giant message to the big boys upstairs and you know the US Gov will try and do everything to either A.Get Texas back or B.Keep everyone from doing the same.

In all honesty I would approve of it since this can be a perfect start to a better future. The current system is dead and we need a fresh start to a better future.

I had a lengthy conversation with a good friend once about the possibility of a 2nd American Civil War, and its honestly a strong possibility within our lifetime.

If Texas seceds, (which, for those who don't know, it only joined the US on the condition that it could) then it might be the first step towards tearing the faulty system apart and recreating it as a much more effective one.

What system is so faulty that Texas leaving will cause collapse?

Well the system is so faulty it has allowed these two idiots as presidential candidates. Texas leaving might push it but it won't make a big enough ripple to cause another civil war or start a revolutionary change of the current system we would need enough states doing this to do enough. States like Cali, Texas, and other large populated states.

Texas won't leave, thé only reason it's such a powerful state is because it's in the USA

I mean you could say the same about UK and Europe, but...

Ok so Texas has always been a special snowflake in wanting to leave. No other state wants to actually leave at this point, and Texas leaving isn't going to make people go "oh im going to leave america so it can make a change and i can rejoin later".

I agree that the process for choosing the presidential candidates is dumb, but there is little correlation between that and a state leaving.

Its not that there's correlation in the process, xion, its that it would be a step on the road to tearing up the current system.

How though? Texas doesn't want to leave because they think the American system sucks, but because they are idiots who think that they are better than the rest of the country and could do better on their own.

What would make a bigger impact to changing the system is if someone prominent in the political scene and admits on how dumb it is currently.

The current state-federal relationship is fine, the issue is with the government being so influenced by money.
