Economic expansion and liberty, by Mars Maniac in Chief Ken MMinC., and occasional brilliance and humor by CJ.
Since the Federal government interprets the constitution to say what it wants it say, I don't see that as an impediment. All we need to do is make it seem in the best interests of the government. Tall order but it can be done. I say the referendum on Texas independence should be nationwide. Just point out the without Texas, there will never be another Republican president. Some answers from the other side: http://www.thetnm.org/answers
Imagine Mexico to the south and the new US in the north?
Still better than president Hillary.
Yes, but what a cost!
I see no downside.
Ya know Hillary would nuke Texas from the Dakotas! ;-) (After making Daschle a general of course.) We do have some old minutemen silo here in Arizona ya might borrow!
I lived in Tucson for many years. I went to the Titan Missile museum. It was there that I developed my one original theory. When I went there, the guide was a maintenance chief at a sister site when they were active. He showed us a blue helicopter (now gone) which he explained was for the MPs, who used to clear protesters out of the hiway when they were trying to bring a new missile down from DMAFB. So I am imagining a Tucson June in the desert, a couple of smelly hippies picking cholla out of their butts for the umpteenth time, when one says to the other, "You know, we haven't stopped a single missile from going into a single silo. I have a better idea! Let's get MBA's and become mangers at defense contractors. We can really screw things up from there."So when I am in a meeting and I have just been informed of some bonehead decision that will blow cost and schedule, I just give them the peace sign. They return it instinctively, then pull it down like Dr. Stangeglove.That is my explanation for defense contractor management. It has more romance than just thinking they are idiots.
Good story. Thanks. I can definitely relate it to meetings I've been in. In all the time I lived in Tucson, I never visited the museum. I did visit with some ATC at DM though. That was fun.
