I don't need a source to prove what I already know. I thought I made that clear. I've been seeing people moving here in ever larger numbers for decades. They show up in schools. They show up at work. They show up in public places. And the ones that come here from socialist states all say the same thing. Their state was taken over by left wingers, out of touch with reality and the people, and they got sick of it. The only thing holding back more people from moving to Texas is the weather. Look at the state's population increase in the last 40 years. Its huge. You can go to the state government's website and find that info quite easily. Just search using demographic terminology. Look at the 40 year projection from 2000! That'll put a nail in this coffin of a debate.

Texas is an individualist state. Why would anybody, other than a collectivist, need to stray away from Texas??? Texas has lots of liberals, about the same as every other state.

OK, fine. Texas is ONE OF the biggest sources of gov/mil contractors, etc... The point remains. The US would suffer with the loss of Texas. And California is seeing a mass exodus, AGAIN. That's why Oregon and Washington are filling up.

Canada would probably be the only one who'd consider selling to them, since the US wouldn't jump at the idea of sustaining a state that just broke off.
Not true. Texas has plenty of water. Water will only become a problem if the rate of population growth continues to accelerate. And the "US" federal government would not stop trade with Texas irregardless of secession. You seem to be implying that you believe that the entire US hates Texas. If so you are sadly mistaken. Texas has good relations with all its neighbors and the other states. The bottom line is that Texas is one of the most popular states in the USA, including internationally.
