TEXAS NATIONALIST MOVEMENT DELIVERS 139,000+ SIGNATURES TO REPUBLICAN PARTY HEADQUARTERS FOR TEXIT REFERENDUM
PUBLISHED ON

DECEMBER 12, 2023

Early Monday morning, Texas Nationalist Movement President Daniel Miller made his way to the headquarters of the Republican Party of Texas to deliver over 139,000 petition signatures in support of forcing a TEXIT referendum.

In June of this year, the Texas Nationalist Movement (TNM) launched a campaign to force a TEXIT referendum on the 2024 Primary ballot. Using a provision in the Texas Election Code, if the TNM collected a minimum of 97,709 valid signatures on the petition, the question: “Should the State of Texas reassert its status as an independent nation?” must, by law, be placed on the primary ballot in March of 2024.

There are MANY fascists/authoritarians/commies/neocons in Texas that would need to be dealt with if anyone is expecting secession to bring freedom and prosperity.

139,000 out of 30 million.


I wonder how many of those ‘Americans’ know that calling for the dissolution of the Union..is a traitor move.

George Washington outlined it directly in his exit speech.

The unity of Government, which constitutes you one people, is also now dear to you. It is justly so; for it is a main pillar in the edifice of your real independence, the support of your tranquillity at home, your peace abroad; of your safety; of your prosperity; of that very Liberty, which you so highly prize.

But as it is easy to foresee, that, from different causes and from different quarters, much pains will be taken, many artifices employed, to weaken in your minds the conviction of this truth; as this is the point in your political fortress against which the batteries of internal and external enemies will be most constantly and actively (though often covertly and insidiously) directed, it is of infinite moment, that you should properly estimate the immense value of your national Union to your collective and individual happiness; that you should cherish a cordial, habitual, and immovable attachment to it; accustoming yourselves to think and speak of it as of the Palladium of your political safety and prosperity; watching for its preservation with jealous anxiety; discountenancing whatever may suggest even a suspicion, that it can in any event be abandoned; and indignantly frowning upon the first dawning of every attempt to alienate any portion of our country from the rest, or to enfeeble the sacred ties which now link together the various parts.

For this you have every inducement of sympathy and interest. Citizens, by birth or choice, of a common country, that country has a right to concentrate your affections. The name of American, which belongs to you, in your national capacity, must always exalt the just pride of Patriotism, more than any appellation derived from local discriminations. With slight shades of difference, you have the same religion, manners, habits, and political principles. You have in a common cause fought and triumphed together; the Independence and Liberty you possess are the work of joint counsels, and joint efforts, of common dangers, sufferings, and successes.

But these considerations, however powerfully they address themselves to your sensibility, are greatly outweighed by those, which apply more immediately to your interest.

Here every portion of our country finds the most commanding motives for carefully guarding and preserving the Union of the whole.

Then that's not a "union" of states, which implies that's it's an agreement. So why even have separate states. Plus, Washington's colleagues left some gaping holes in the Constitution, so we can thank them for much of the shit we're dealing with. And also, Texas has the Treaty of Hidalgo which they renew every 2 years or so which is their agreement to be part of the US. They can simply choose not to renew the Treaty. In theory.

If Trump wins in November and there's a transfer of power (technically unnecessary) in January '25, then there's no need for us to secede from the nation. If not.. Texas OUT! We'll be the only safe place in North America and you can bet your ass our borders will be well defended. Should OK, LA, MS, AL, FL, TN, KY, ND, SD, MT, WY, WV, and KS want to join us (extremely likely), then I'm sure AZ, NM, AK, AR, MO, ID, GA, NC, SC, NB, UT, NV, and more would love to join us. All the blue cities in those states would be crushed into red so we'd see a dual mass exodus of Dems to CA, NY, & IL while seeing an exodus of the red counties in EVERY outlying state to the center of the country.

There'd be a short war in northern CA (with all the counties there fighting for the new red nation) so we could have west coast access while Dems would have to completely forego any access to the Gulf of Mexico.

Should secession go to the COUNTY level, Dems would be pushed into all the major cities and would have to learn to grow their food in skyscrapers pretty damn quick. Once they were squished together in all the cities, they could celebrate their LGBTQ crap all they want and take away all their own guns. Prolly end up being a genderless orgy of people trying to figure out where they should stick what.

But as it is easy to foresee, that, from different causes and from different quarters, much pains will be taken, many artifices employed, to weaken in your minds the conviction of this truth; as this is the point in your political fortress against which the batteries of internal and external enemies will be most constantly and actively (though often covertly and insidiously) directed, it is of infinite moment, that you should properly estimate the immense value of your national Union to your collective and individual happiness; that you should cherish a cordial, habitual, and immovable attachment to it; accustoming yourselves to think and speak of it as of the Palladium of your political safety and prosperity; watching for its preservation with jealous anxiety; discountenancing whatever may suggest even a suspicion, that it can in any event be abandoned; and indignantly frowning upon the first dawning of every attempt to alienate any portion of our country from the rest, or to enfeeble the sacred ties which now link together the various parts.

For this you have every inducement of sympathy and interest. Citizens, by birth or choice, of a common country, that country has a right to concentrate your affections. The name of American, which belongs to you, in your national capacity, must always exalt the just pride of Patriotism, more than any appellation derived from local discriminations. With slight shades of difference, you have the same religion, manners, habits, and political principles. You have in a common cause fought and triumphed together; the Independence and Liberty you possess are the work of joint counsels, and joint efforts, of common dangers, sufferings, and successes.

But these considerations, however powerfully they address themselves to your sensibility, are greatly outweighed by those, which apply more immediately to your interest.

Here every portion of our country finds the most commanding motives for carefully guarding and preserving the Union of the whole.

Re: TEXAS NATIONALIST MOVEMENT DELIVERS 139,000+ SIGNATURES TO REPUBLICAN PARTY HEADQUARTERS FOR TEXIT REFERENDUM
The Unanimous Declaration of Independence made by the
Delegates of the People of Texas in General Convention at the
Town of Washington on the 2nd day of March 1836

When a government has ceased to protect the lives, liberty and property of the people, from whom its legitimate powers are derived, and for the advancement of whose happiness it was instituted, and so far from being a guarantee for the enjoyment of those inestimable and inalienable rights, becomes an instrument in the hands of evil rulers for their oppression.

When the Federal Republican Constitution of their country, which they have sworn to support, no longer has a substantial existence, and the whole nature of their government has been forcibly changed, without their consent, from a restricted federative republic, composed of sovereign states, to a consolidated central military despotism, in which every interest is disregarded but that of the army and the priesthood, both the eternal enemies of civil liberty, the everready minions of power, and the usual instruments of tyrants.

When, long after the spirit of the constitution has departed, moderation is at length so far lost by those in power, that even the semblance of freedom is removed, and the forms themselves of the constitution discontinued, and so far from their petitions and remonstrances being regarded, the agents who bear them are thrown into dungeons, and mercenary armies sent forth to force a new government upon them at the point of the bayonet.

When, in consequence of such acts of malfeasance and abdication on the part of the government, anarchy prevails, and civil society is dissolved into its original elements. In such a crisis, the first law of nature, the right of self-preservation, the inherent and inalienable rights of the people to appeal to first principles, and take their political affairs into their own hands in extreme cases, enjoins it as a right towards themselves, and a sacred obligation to their posterity, to abolish such government, and create another in its stead, calculated to rescue them from impending dangers, and to secure their future welfare and happiness.

Never happen. Feds would declare war on Texas. No outside goods would be allowed in. Mexico would be paid to not ship goods into texas. Within 30 days it would collapse.

Probably.

I'm sure Mexico would still be sending in cocaine and illegals.
