If a state were to secede from the union what would be the challenges they would face? Specifically Texas. 2nd highest GDP. Largest oil producer. Most farms of any other state. Abundance of land. Has one of the lowest amount of federal aid per resident (around $300 per resident)
I assume the biggest challenge would be getting the USA to agree to peacefully separate. It's an interesting question and makes me think of Catalonia and the American civil war (neither of which worked out too well).
