Texas "Remainers" are trying to scare the populace - Plus this week's links

Somehow, since 1945, 140 new, formerly dependent countries have been able to “make it” as independent, self-governing nation-states. The unspoken assertion is that, to be able to do anything that Texas would have to do as an independent nation, it must be a part of the United States. The implication is that Texas, and Texans, aren’t as good, as smart, or as capable as other nations.

This requires them to ignore the truth about how Texas stacks up against other self-governing countries in the world. In every category in which nation-states are traditionally compared, Texas overperforms.

  • Texas has the 10th largest economy in the world.
  • Texas ranks 40th in the world in size.
  • Texas ranks 47th in the world in population.
  • Texas ranks 40th in the world in the size of its labor force.
  • Texas is a net global exporter ranking 22nd in the world and leading all other States in the United States.
  • 93 percent of Texas exports are manufactured exports.
  • Texas is the 12th largest technology exporter in the world.
  • Texas ranks 19th in the world in the size of its active farms and ranches.
  • Texas is the largest energy producer in the United States, accounting for more than half of the entire United States energy production and one-quarter of the refining capacity with over 26 petroleum refineries.
  • Texas has the 7th largest coal reserves.
  • Texas is the 6th largest producer of wind energy in the world.
  • Texas has its own power grid.

These statistics, while impressive, don’t tell the whole story. Texas not only does well in spite of the federal government, Texas is already structurally capable of doing everything that is traditionally done by a national government. In Texas, you will also find a state-level analog for every single cabinet-level federal department.

This a quote from a great article on the Texas Nationalist Movement



In Bozeman, MT there is a big split between the hipsters, college kids, and environmentalist and the farmers and ranchers. The county has rules some conservative people don't want to follow, and this young woman is on the ragged edge.
