"We are uniquely situated because we have energy resources, fossil and
otherwise, and our own independent electrical grid. Generally speaking, we have made great progress in becoming an independent nation, an ‘island nation’ if you will, and I think we want to continue down that path so that if the rest of the country falls apart, Texas can operate as a stand-alone entity with energy, food, water and roads as if we were a closed-loop system." - Texas Railroad Commission Chairman Barry Smitherman
, who is running for Attorney General.
