Sometimes, when I'm alone, I like to lay on the floor and pretend I'm a carrot.

Implying citizens in especially those lower states couldnt throw up a hell of a defense protecting their homes. Short of Airstrikes, which I think the US would not allow as they would be so close to their own border.

Pretty sure several of the states, could be self sufficient. Note most probably could not, but some of them might be able to be. Others might be able to get enough from tourism or other factors as well as their own agriculture.

And money. That will depend on how the secession happens, if they say fuck your debt or agree to pay a share of it. Its beyond my knowledge level to comment any further on this part

Americans would never fire on Americans in that situation. Its different to the civil war now, people have a national identity as opposed to a state identity.
#275 - Battledogg (11/15/2012) [-]
I meant other countries invading. If some states do secede, which the US kinda has to allow if it does happen, there would be no point then for them to war the new 'country'.

If the US wanted to start bombing and shit, I doubt any citizenry militia would last long.
#291 - intrepidy (11/15/2012) [-]
No country would invade Texas, no country has any remote interest or navy specialized in amphibious invasions. Texas has nothing worth having (it will run out of oil soon)

US doesn't have to allow anything. Worst comes to the worst, the US would have a vote in Texas for the whole population to vote on Independence, which most likely would end up with an autonomous Texas. (But not sovereign.) War would only happen if Texas decided to seize all the US military hardware and infrastructure and refuse to pay their national share of the debt. Which even then, would be as quick as it took the US to move across the border. (If texas was on the verge of leaving, we can assume the US would place military forces on the state border)

Texas can most definitely survive on it's own and support other states as well. *cough* "The Confederacy will rise again" *cough*.

If all those countries in the South seceded, and became a union, they could easily maintain their own, and prosper. Also, Texas alone has all the resources to live on it's own. And when they were admitted to the U.S. it was on the condition they could maintain their own navy (which they use for border patrol now) and that they could peacefully sucede at any time.

No.... no they couldn't. Hell, North America couldn't sustain itself as a whole. We need trading with other countries.
User avatar
#353 - Fgner (11/15/2012) [-]
Yes it can. We choose not too. Also, needs for imports do not classify a country as non-self-sufficient.
User avatar
#436 - whtkid (11/15/2012) [-]
No, it cannot. The united states has a very large lack of natural resources, and has to trade for most of the goods it receives. If the south split of, then we would be placing large tariffs on each other and competing more and more for the remaining resources.
User avatar
#470 - Fgner (11/15/2012) [-]
And if you want to talk about successful countries without virtually any natural resources, look at Japan. They are a processing country. They import raw materials, and export the completed products.
User avatar
#469 - Fgner (11/15/2012) [-]
Do you know what you are talking about? The United States has more oil than the rest of the world, the United States has ample amounts of raw material, we export large amounts of agriculture products (because we have so much farmland), and we are entirely capable of industrialization. We make up almost an entire continent, and one of the most fertile continents to boot, do you not realize that? The South contains the majority of these resources, as well. The only reason we don't take advantage of them, is because of stupid fucking politics. And if the South seceded, tariffs wouldn't be placed because they have been proven to damage the economy of those enforcing the tariff quite a bit.

Just saying, the US does not make up 'Almost an entire continent', let alone even half of the continent. Also, I don't believe the US has more oil than the rest of the world. Seeing as that would be damn near impossible for 51% of the planets oil reserves to be within US borders.
No offence, but you should try to not exaggerate your 'facts'.

1)
North America: 9.54 million square miles
United States: 3.79 million square miles
Sorry, I've never bothered wasting my time doing the math, but I was making a general assumption. I underestimated the size of Canada greatly.
Source: Wiki
2) "A recent report by the U.S. Government Accountability Office estimate that if half of the oil bound up in the rock of the Green River Formation could be recovered it would be "equal to the entire world's proven oil reserves.""(abcnews.go.com/Business/american-oil-find-holds-oil-opec/story?id=17536852#.UKXJytHpvNA)
I'm sorry, but maybe you should bother clicking the first link on Google before you go spouting your mouth off.

Also, nice job ignoring everything else, and simply attacking the one thing I got wrong because of a simply misunderstanding of Canada's size, and another thing which was completely right and has been known for years.

I was not be disrespectful, so I don't see why you had to be. Second, it is an 'estimated' amount of oil. And estimations aren't always right. But, say that there is that much oil there, how do you know there isn't another huge oil deposit like that? Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't that article saying that it would amount to more than the current oil reserves?
I never used the word current, I simply said 'Seeing as that would be damn near impossible for 51% of the planets oil reserves to be within US borders'. Now, thinking about the size of the rest of the world compared to the US, would it not make sense 'statistically' that there could not be that much oil there?
Again, your fact only takes into account known oil amounts. There is probably still a TON of oil elsewhere in the world, such as under sea, but it hasn't been discovered yet.
Now, I was not commenting on your post to attack or berate you, but to just correct the facts you had stated prior. You don't you have to get all bent out about it.

if oklahoma were to leave we have oil, farm animals, and grain
not to forget we also have grain
but we are not even going to try because we may be dumbasses but we are not that big of ones

Some people think because the state is doing good that they can be a country, or that they have many airforce/army bases that they have an army. The bases would pack up and leave if a state seceded and that state would be on U.S.A.'s shit list.

Several of them in fact do. Texas as a prime example.

#196 - givehimthemulk (11/15/2012) [-]
But a lot of the states that think they have the resources get huge government subsidies to afford to use them (oil, obviously, but even agriculture). Leave the US, lose the money to afford the resources. Not to mention all the national military personnel and equipment.

Texas doesn't, we have some resources, but no army, we would lose are "no debt" law to build one and maintain the "country" but would die out fast.
#199 - Battledogg (11/15/2012) [-]
Pretty sure I saw somewhere they were saying Texas could thrive, given they were not invaded. And truth be told, I doubt anyone from across the sea would, cause it would make the USA thats left nervous, having enemies so close.
