A thought on the debate yesterday

I didn't watch the Republican candidate debate last night; it would have been bad for my blood pressure. But I'm a bit surprised that everyone seems focused on Perry's comments on Social Security being a Ponzi scheme, and nobody bothered to bring up his suggesting that Texas might want to secede from the US at some point.

Yes, the Social Security thing is a big deal (and he certainly does deserve criticism for it, given how fact-free it is, and how stupid of an idea devolving it into the states is), but is it really bigger than the US fragmenting?
