There ain't a damn thing he can do about it.
This guy appears to think DC is actually important within states.

It feels like 1861 all over again.

 :whistle:

Except this  time the industrial weight is in the red states, most of the military is from the red states, most of the military hardware is in the red states, and damn near all of the guns.

What exactly can the US do with 1/3rd of their troops, and less than half of their hardware to put most of the continent back under their thumb?

Nothing.  Absolutely, positively nothing.

I also don't think he has the slightest clue of the visceral hate that exists wrt Washington DC.

Good luck.

It is one reason why Southerners voted for someone like Trump.  In spite of being a Yankee, he was the guy who promised to go up against the DC mindset.

The federal government would care, a lot. There's no way Texas would be allowed to keep those resources.
Come and take them then...
Throwing our allegiances to political parties in the long run gave away our liberty.

No one's going to stop the Feds from removing anything they wanted to keep from their Air Force, Navy, Army and Coast Guard bases. They  can even dismantle the barracks if they so desired. There's not much to take from the National Forests, unless they harvest the trees. The Greenies would have a conniption fit if they touched one of those precious trees though.

We wouldn't need a repeat of 1861.  The United States has plenty of bases in other foreign countries.  Texas could do the same.

Please don't tell us it's Texas.  We already have too many left leaning millenials as it is.
