The whole problem with Texas seceding would be the influx of people from all the other states.

We sure don’t need that in Texas. We would need genuine immigration control.

Both sets of my great grand parents came to TX one around 1885, the other before 1870, of course, in covered wagons.

I love Texas. Maybe if we seceded all the liberals would leave and go to Barney Frank’s or Pelosi’s districts.

I think that if Texas DID secede, a few other states would probably secede also........

Throughout the 37 States with Sovereignty Resolutions, August 29th will be a day set down in history when We The People gave our government the option to either restore our Individual and State Sovereignty, nullify ALL Federal legislation that is unconstitutional, and restore our God-given, unalienable rights, or we will be forced to exercise the right our Founders set down in the Declaration of Independence and abolish our government (secede) and start a new government that will adhere to our contract with government that we call a Constitution.

This is not and should not be a violent confrontation. Violence is not condoned by anyone involved. However, we are exercising our rights and our duty to compel the restoration of our sovereignty and rights (alter our government) or it will leave us with no choice but secession.

Here in Texas, we’ll be meeting with the Governor with the petition you find here. We’ll also have the support of Rep. Leo Berman and all other representatives who support Leo’s Sovereignty Bill and House Bill 1863 that nullifies all Federal legislation that does not have explicit authorization within the U.S. Constitution. We’ll also be demanding the dismantling of all State agencies that have been created to support unconstitutionally authorized Federal agencies. We will demand that all support of illegal aliens be stopped in Texas and that the Governor deploy our National Guard and other volunteer citizens along our southern border to stem the tide of illegal immigration.

At the same time we deliver this to Governor Perry, we will also have copies of this petition and demand delivered to every county courthouse and County Sheriff throughout the State of Texas, effectively putting our local public servants on notice that they will be held accountable to the letter of their Oath of Office.

Take a look at the Texas Nationalist Movement, a reported 250,000 members and growing. I joined after hearing the organization’s president make a very clear presentation covering the reasons for and the path to Texas Independence.

This is not a fringe group of “wingnuts”. It is a group of citizens demanding freedom from government control and determined to have it.

I don’t need any other reason to secede but that it’s Thursday.

I can’t imagine the Feds ever allowing any state to secede, but even if we did, the cities are infested with huge numbers of social parasites — what would we do about them?
