People often use the “Texas gives more than it takes” argument for secession. Ignoring the fact that is a poor metric for determining sustainability.

Texas gives more than it takes
Only New Mexico pays less in taxes than it receives in support, so that’s not a big claim.
That said, a third of Texas’s state budget is paid for by the Federal government.
From 2000 to 2015, federal funds comprised between 29.9 and 40.8 percent of all Texas state revenue, and averaged about 34 percent … OMB reports state governments received federal grants totaling more than $661 billion in 2016. The Comptroller’s most recent Annual Cash Report estimated that 35.5 percent of Texas’ net revenue for fiscal 2016 came from the federal government Texas Comptroler
Then there’s the billions in federal assistance for Hurricane Harvey, and the 2021 American Rescue Plan Act and Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act together sent $76.7 billion to Texas. So, the Federal support to Texas may be higher now than it was in 2016.

I don’t think the US government would be happy letting a ‘foreign state’ control their only nuclear weapons assembly and disassembly facility (Pantex Plant). And I’m pretty sure Texas wouldn’t be happy having “some other country’s” nukes, military bases, naval yards, and other military installations inside their boundaries.
People talking about secession today are just crazy. State succession, maybe. But the actual process of successfully seceding from the union, after decades of federal investment in the military–industrial complex in every state to “spread the money and jobs around” is just nuts.

Conservatives 10-15 years ago: my tax bill is too big.
Same conservatives today: can somebody do something about those women, [N-word]s, gay people, transgenders, Jews, Muslims, Godless heathen atheists, pornographers, vaccines, etc.?

90% of today’s problems in the world are the long-term result of the Reagan presidency, from resurgent nationalism to income inequality to global warming to distrust of democracy.
And yet, Dem elites are more favorable towards Reagan than ever, even as their young voter base hates his guts and realizes how much damage he caused.
