I wish this were true. When he fails to deliver on the impossible promises I'm afraid instead of some sort of awakening all we'll see is more blind faith and rationalization. (how could he fix, change, etc. given what he has to work with, what the republicans left him with, and so on)“But when spring comes, it will be clear that there are no miracles.”
Unfortunately, I believe this as well, at least in part.“Now we will see a change to the regulatory system on a global financial scale: America will cease to be the world’s regulator,” to be replaced by China and Russia, he said.
I don't believe the other states are better off financially more than Texas.Living in Texas, I can tell you that Texas could not stand alone. We have our own power grid, oil production, gas production, and refining capacity. We still have agriculture but we also have a huge dependent population. We are bringing in people from all over the place trying to find jobs here. Most can't find them. We are overrun by Mexican and other Latin illegals. We don't have a monetary system in place other than the US. In a pinch we could stand for a while but not for long.
I'd be careful about under estimating Russia, they are not some 3rd world military power. They have technology that is on the same level as our own and in some cases, beyond our current abilities.Good luck with that whole take back Alaska thing. With the amount of military bases and personnel stationed here, along with the numerous known and "unknown" missile locations, the early warning base in Clear, etc. Wishful thinking on their part.: Like some nerd lusting after a hot chick, he knows he wants to hit it, but he's afraid of what may happen when he tries.:
