Texas Lawmaker Introduces Bill to Begin Process of Secession From USA:
Texas constitution Article 1, Section 2 states:
“All political power is inherent in the people, and all free governments are founded on their authority, and instituted for their benefit. The faith of the people of Texas stands pledged to the preservation of a republican form of government, and, subject to this limitation only, they have at all times the inalienable right to alter, reform or abolish their government in such manner as they may think expedient.”
1-27-21, * -- Anticipating what they (rightfully) believe will become the most socialist-leaning US administration since Great Britain ruled the colonies, conservatives in Texas are not planning on ‘waiting out’ Joe Biden’s term. They want out, as in all the way out and now. Constitutional experts say that states have no right to secede, but Texans aren’t asking for permission.
State Rep. Kyle Biedermann (R) filed legislation this week seeking to put the question of a “Texit” — a process by which the Lone Star state would become the Lone Star nation — to voters. It’s called House Bill 1359. Aalso known as=>
<= the Texas Independence Referendum Act, the legislation called for a statewide ballot in November 2021 asking voters if they want to remain part of the United States or establish an independent republic. If voters say yes, then after a study they’ll decide the best way to break away from the USA; needing to amend the state Constitution to form the new Nation.
It’s now time that the People of Texas be allowed to decide their own future. Voters of all political persuasions in Texas can agree on one thing, Washington D.C. is and has been broken. Our federal government continuously fails our working families, seniors, taxpayers, veterans, and small business owners.
Hundreds of thousands of people have flocked to the state in recent years from California, New York and other liberal leftist Democrat led states. Texas is unique as it has its own potential monetary system (via its own gold reserves), its own electric grid and a robust oil-and-gas industry. Texas is also becoming a tech hub.
