I would love for most of those states to secede.
Pay for your own tornado and hurricane repair, security, and welfare. Most of those states wouldn't survive if they weren't sucking money away from other states to pay for their own lazy ass citizens.
Reading your posts, I'm left thinking if it was all true, they'd be stupid not to secede. Apparently they carry this nation, while they get nothing in return.
If that's not what you meant, funny blame me for your own lack of clarification.
You want to get all technical now and say "even though my post left you thinking that, it isn't exactly what I said." Well I'll get technical then and say "you still haven't said Texas would be better off staying in the union, nor have you listed any reasons why they should."
Abraham Lincoln was hand-picked by English-influenced financial interests, who had also financed both the abolitionist and secessionist hotheads, precisely because they knew his hard line against slavery would break up our American Union, after which, it was envisioned, the English could once again impose their rule over us. But he bucked his backers, and fought the war to keep the union. It wasn't about slavery exactly, but about American ideas of human rights versus the Bristish oligarchy. However, the English still had the wit to win. . . . they turned federalism into their ace. . .. well into about a hundred aces stuffed up their sleeves. . . . and in the years following the Civil War they owned a whole lot of American enterprise, and had literal vassal lords Americans used to call "robber barons" securing monopolies in every sector of American enterprise.
And today, we are ruled more by the ideals of the feudal lords than by Monroe, Madison, or Jefferson. . . . .
our dumb secessionists today are really just uninformed about geopolitics. The real objective of liberty would be to revolutionize the United Nations and make it a representative democracy where all kinds of diverse people could maintain their personal rights and liberties.

Texas is home to Ron Paul endorsers and Alex Jones listeners, that are more than able to take care of themselves without your precious hurricane help, social security, and welfare.
It's neo-conservative agreements like NAFTA and GATT that sent all of our nations jobs to Mexico and China in the first place, and is a huge reason why many people of this nation want nothing more to do with a two party system that creates an illusion of choice.
"If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered." - Thomas Jefferson
I was responding to this "Personally I would love for Utah to secede, just to get away from liberal socialists like yourself"
Which has nothing to do with whether democrats or republicans have differing political beliefs. Which I think is quite clearly the case btw.
They don't differ too much since they are both further to the right end of the political spectrum than the left, which makes your claim Obama is a "liberal socialist" even more hysterical to me.
Hate You Can Trust
But before you bust your gut laughing at it, it is clear you are also such a stooge for entirely missing the actual point.
You are not a qualified American, in the original sense of the American revolutionaries who actually believed in human rights, actual personal liberty and freedom, or who took pride in their values of independence, integrity, and self-reliance. . . . . when compared to the feudal vassals, the commoners who in Europe depended on their landholder nobility and lived the lives of peasants and serfs.
"British Stooges" as I would use the term, are people who think the world is best run by elites, in various apparitions of superiority such as professionals, clergy, intellectuals, and industrial giants, or wealthy genteel persons who from their thrones of social authority can instill docile servility on the humans of the lower classes. Clearly, industrial and cartel monopolists seriously believe they are more qualified to determine our destinies than "WE, the People."
And the fact remains that American high society has always licked the boots of the English nobility. I could name a few names of those Americans who were enthralled to be knighted by the Queen and considered it step up in their career to become British subjects.
