(NaturalNews) Citizens from all 50 U.S. states have now filed petitions with the White House asking for “peaceful secession” from the union. According to Daily Caller, more than 675,000 petition signatures have now been collected.

The Texas petition now has over 100,000 signatures, and more signatures are appearing by the hour.

It raises the practical question: Could Texas survive as a nation state if it secedes from the union?

The short answer is YES.

No state is better positioned than Texas to fend for itself

As you’ll see here, Texas is unquestionably the state best positioned to function as its own nation. Here’s why:

• Texas is a fiercely independent culture. It has already been its own nation, the Republic of Texas, from 1836 to 1846.

• Texas is the only state with its own independent power grid.

• Texas can grow more than enough food to feed itself (and trade with neighboring states).

• Texas is the energy empire of America, with massive resources of natural gas, petroleum, solar and wind. It contains the largest untapped oil reserves in North America, save for Alaska.

• Texas has physical possession of America’s oil refineries. (Key strategic resource!)

• Texas has abundant technology and telecommunications. It is the “silicon valley” of the South.

• Texas has the basic infrastructure of a space program. The Apollo program, after all, was based out of Houston.

• Texas has a ready labor force.

• Texas has abundant natural resources, including water, soil, sunlight and seeds. There are 15 major rivers that run through Texas.

• Texas has manufacturing know-how and a “can-do” culture of practical people who know how to solve problems.

• Texas has multiple shipping ports and international airports, allowing high-volume international trade with other nations.

• Texas has the capability of defending itself against threat of invasion or military force. Tens of millions of firearms are already owned by well-skilled farmers, ranchers and military veterans. Any attempt to occupy Texas with a military force would be far worse than trying to occupy Afghanistan.

• Texas has a world-class university education system.

• Texas has a history of independence from tyranny. It’s part of the Texas DNA.

• Texas has diverse ecology, with 10 climatic regions, 14 soil regions, and 11 distinct ecological regions.

• Texas is a state with tremendous citizen pride. More than in any other state, Texans identify their state as a source of strength and independence.

• Texas citizens have a sense of ethics and morality that’s simply missing from many other areas (most notably the Northeastern USA). In Texas, people generally know the difference between right and wrong, and they typically seek to do the “right” thing.

• Texas has Ron Paul! (Need we say more?)

What would Texas look like if it became its own nation?

• For starters, Texas could abandon the failing U.S. currency and create its own honest money system. This effort should, of course, be led by none other than Ron Paul, the man who should also be considered for the role of President of Texas.
