Layman’s Analysis

I want to look at three different graphics. I’ll provide very little narration, you extract from this whatever you can.

First, the electoral results (Red State/Blue State) for the 2012 Election:

electorals

Now, the graphic for the secessionist movement:

secession

Rather similar? Expected? Yes, of course it is.

Now let’s consider a few things:

Texas has the 14th largest economy IN THE WORLD, including ALL COUNTRIES.

In the secessionist map above, most of American’s raw materials from mining comes from the States within Red, those States that have petitioned for secession.

Add up the economies of the other states in Red.

Consider Florida, Colorado and New Mexico are land locked.

Now, all 50 states have citizens that have filed petitions for secession.
