    Unlike a lot of other red states, at least Texas does not receive more in federal benefits than it contributes in taxes. It receives in benefits about .91 on the dollar (I'm too lazy to look up the exact amount right now). So if they did secede, at least they wouldn't get immediatley hammered by the withdrawal of federal money.
