    Anyone else remember Panarin's take on the US back in 2008? I was listening to the radio this morning and this came up again after years of not hearing it, and it was interesting to hear what all of the callers had to say. Varied opinions but it seems most think it is a possibility. Not trying to stir up a "conspiracy theory" and I'm sure not looking for a tinfoil hat label. Just thought this was interesting and wanted to see what others thought.

    Interesting map, though I would draw and name the areas differently. How about the Union of Silly Socialist Republics for the North-East? There has been a push for 2 or 3 decades to form Cascadia which would be comprised of Alaska, British Columbia, Washington and Oregon (California is noticeably absent) since both the natural terrain and commerce move North-South in that area. The people, for the most part have the same values, excluding the Far Left nut-jobs and Anarchists that seem to thrive in those environs and would be able to work to that common goal. As for Texas coming under the sway of Mexico? I doubt it very much as even most Hispanics I know despise the Mexican government and any attempt by Mexican military forces to invade Texas would be met by about 20 million armed, angry Texans.

    I don't see the "Texas Republic (especially the "Texas" part)" becoming part of Mexico...

    Yea, there are definitley some borders I dont agree with. Especailly the part about the Republic of Texas being under Mexican influence. I dont quite see the likes of Tennessee and Kentucky, and maybe South Carolina going with the Left Coast either.

    Shows the author used easy to define lines on a map and not geopolitical likenesses and affiliations. Texas and New Mexico are not like minded (now if them and Arizona would change places......) and would probably not mesh well. I see more a vertical Texas state with Oklahoma, Kansas, up to the Canada border, with some eastward expansion, and some westward above Colorado, but not including southern Louisiana. Groups that think alike and can get some sort of connection will stick together.



    Fixed it for ya' ;)

    I'd say the Russian professor knows two things about Texas:
    Jack shit.
    No way Texas would submit to Mexico's government.

    Who can keep the lights turned on and who can refine oil? That is where lines would be drawn along with geopolitical likenesses.

    Louisiana has a lot of oil and the guys who get oil. It isn't unrealistic to think they would go with us. Especially since the main democrat voting block got highly diluted thanks to Katrina...

    Not sure he knows that either...

    I don't see this scenario at all, not even close or a possibility...as depicted.

    IF there is any possibility I see it being split just E of the Rockies, China and Russia respectively. SANS Texas, Texas will go it alone. We have a Navy, an Air Force and the 36th Division, Texas Nat Guard. From a military standpoint few countries can compare, we have the 12th largest economy in the world and unlike the US we are growing in GDP. I would think that La would throw in with us and a hellva lot of folks would move here in a hurry bringing their guns with them. At the same time we would be kicking folks like Wendy Davis and J Castro to somewhere N of the Red River.

    In any new Republic, Texas will be the center of gravity. Oklahoma, Arkansas, Nebraska, Kansas, Louisiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, and other like minded states would certainly join a new union of states.

    It is not secession. It is the creation of a new Republic as stated in the Declaration of Independence:

    "It is the Right of the People to alter or abolish (the Powers in Place), and to institute New Government..."

    Bring it on.

    If the Great State of Texas separated itself from the Union, it would still be the tenth largest economy on earth, and has enough energy to sustain itself without imports, and we would have to go to war with Mexico to secure our water rights, which the Federal Government has refused to do.

    The State would "foreclose" on Federal installations, and take claim of those properties and eject all Federal troops and civil servants. The State would grand amnesty to all Texas soldiers in Federal Service who pledge their allegiance to Texas.

    I doubt Obama has the stomach for such a rebellion, and would flee back to his Chicago bath house.
