I don't have views on this, but right now there are over 250,000 signatures calling for it. What are the reasons? So far I have heard that some conservatives in the state don't like that Texas has to pull more than their own weight and they don't want Texas money helping smaller states. Why should Texas have to pay for itself and others? I have also heard that Texas is sick and tired of a liberal Washington DC imposing law on a state that wants more rights for guns and one that isn't fully on the page of marriage equality of much of the rest of the nation. Why can't Texas be allowed to govern itself like a separate nation reflecting the values of its residents? But from what I have read, a Texit would not really change much and won't suddenly mean fewer taxes. Texas needs their neighbors Mexico and the United States as much as they need Texas so it will be business as usual. Just like it seems like Brexit is more a move on paper and not a real change on the way things are done, is Texit just a stupid idea? Laws will quickly be rewritten to keep the business as usual model, so state or nation, Texas won't be able to run and hide from operating costs. If Texas pays less or nothing for other states, they will only impose duties on Texas goods to even the balance sheet. So what is gained?
