I have always kind of thought that most Countries are all about Democracy, freedom of choice and whatnot, until, these rights they crow about threaten the State and its status quo. If California or Texas really were serious about seceding, the US Government probably wouldn't hesitate to use force to prevent this action. Refer to most any Nation, England wasn't about letting Northern Ireland to have its Independence, Spain has been fighting the Basque and etc since the Republic began, Mexico won't let the Maya go or the Yaqui, Russia the Crimea, China with Tibet. We supported the breakup of Yugoslavia, but again guarantee that if Southern Texas wanted to go, like Kosovo did, (which was very important in the Serbian mind), in the former Yugoslavia, the Texas National Guard as well as US Federal Troops would be garrisoned there and preventing this action. Once Soldiers and Law Enforcement are allowed to start thumping people, it is hard to stop. Nations are like people, as long as it doesn't affect them, it is okay to force or condemn others. My take on an early Wednesday morning.
