Barry Smitherman, head of the powerful Texas Railroad Commission and is seeking to be the state’s next Attorney General, made waves last week with comments about economic collapse, energy policy and the future. However, those things only led up to a much bigger statement: “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.” In an interview with WND, Smitherman added that Texas is “uniquely situated because we have energy resources, fossil and otherwise, and our own independent electrical grid.” “This was one of my goals at the Utility Commission, and it is one my goals currently as chairman of the Railroad Commission,” Smitherman said. “That’s why I stress so vehemently oil and gas production, permitting turnaround times, and everything that enables the industry to produce as much as it can, as quickly as it can.”
