I know, we all joke about it, but I was wondering how possible it would be to actually pull off... We have 1/3 of the oil reserves, and roughly the same production, of the US. We have the 2nd highest gross state product of $1.9 billion. We have NASA. We have most of the fortune 500 companies, along with the second largest economy of the US. We have the highest export revenues. We lead the US in production of cattle, and have several other crops...no food shortage for us. We have a good bulk of the US military power. All in all, I think we could do alright. But would it be the best choice? All depends on the circumstances. Also would depend on how the rest of the union felt about us leaving. Thoughts/opinions?
