"Republic of Texas" Again Pushes for Independence Story dated 24 February 2005
Now, before you immediately dismiss this as insanity, ask yourself this question: Why is it more desirable to be part of a larger country? I mean, aside form the security advantages? This actually goes to another question: Why is it so important that Iraq remain as one unit? Would the citizens not be better off if the country were split into separate regions representing the population bases of Kurds, Sunni Muslims, and Shiite Muslims respectively? If a majority of the citizens of a state want to secede from the Union, why should they be stopped? They could have legitimate cause -- they might be tired of the Supreme Court interfering with their laws, they might be tired of federal taxes depressing their economy, they might be tired of sending their citizens to fight overseas to free other people while their own are oppressed by OSHA, the DEA, the ATF, and so forth. Should we be allowed to stop them from seceding? If we did stop them, would that make us an empire? _____________________________________________
