To my knowledge, every military base of the USA is Federal Property.
Now, if in theory Texas would break free.. All federal property within Texas could be simply destroyed by the US military. I doubt that they would just abandon the bases..
And when I think of it... Texas oil.... I don't know that now either, but I can see that there's a high possibility of oil lands that are property of the USA and not state, or privately owned.
None of the big cities in Texas would want to leave the union. Austin would certainly fight it. Maybe they could break off southwest but well over half the state wouldn't go for it. People don't realize that over 25 million people live in this state so a few backwoods rednecks and people who don't like the state but live somewhere else signing a petition means nothing.

"claiming Obama gives out more welfare, by lowering the requirements. "
47 million now on welfare (way up) and he did lower the requirements with no requirements...
You can't have it both ways. Believing that there are so few jobs people have given up looking for work and thinking people are too lazy to find work are incongruent. You can't be too lazy to find something that is supposedly not there for those who are looking.

There isnt a both ways in this situation. You dont have to have a job, you just have to go on a couple interviews every month.
Allowing people to just stop looking for work benefits our society how?
Hehe... The claim was that Obama was offering cell phones to get people to vote for him. The claim was shown to be false. The claim was made by a biased source, Adam Putnam. You claimed to just skim the Forbes article because it was "really biased" so I reminded you not only of the source, "from the left," but also a biased claim you had made in return.

everybody wishes it would. But it wont. Before its over and done with the US will be like nazi germany for a little while. Without the genocide.
'Twas a cutlass swipe or an ounce of lead
Or a yawing hole in a battered head
And the scuppers clogged with rotting red
And there they lay I damn me eyes
All lookouts clapped on Paradise
All souls bound just contrarywise, yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!
