It would be harder, despite predictions of Texas starting to turn Blue, or at least purple.

While Texans are not individually dependent on Federal money, the state certainly is. Texas government ranks 24th in dependency on Federal dollars.

All I can say is, “Adios!”

If Texas attempted to secede, the US military would prevent it, echoing the Civil War (not the one with the Avengers). That would cause the South to support them. If they tried to join Texas, they would not be voting in the election, insuring a Dem victory.

Harder for a while.

If Texas got serious some people would flee the state. Probably go to Arizona and Florida. The question is would some people run towards the Texas?

It doesn’t matter as Texas will likely turn blue soon and besides that the GOP is dead.
