Texit: Texas Inspired by Brexit, Aims to Break Away from the United States by 2018

BrexitTexit-1151x640By Amando Flavio

Britain has voted to exit the European Union. This has been abbreviated simply as Brexit. Since the vote, many things have happened. The pound is falling against the dollar. There have been reports of some businesses wanting to move from the country. The stock market has been affected. The country seems to be in a state of confusion. Currently, some people are backing an online petition for a second vote.

But as the chaos is going on in Britain; in the United States, some citizens of a particular state in the country are determined to also test the waters in order to break away just like Britain has done.

In the state of Texas, the pro-secessionist movement, known as the Texas Nationalist Movement (TNM), has asked state governor Greg Abbott to answer an appeal. The appeal will ensure that the state goes to the ballot box in 2018, to determine whether to break away from the rest of the United States, or not.

The TNM is very confident that when their appeal is considered for the vote, Texas will be an independent republican nation in 2018.

TNM claims to have over 200,000 people supporting the movement online. The movement has called on more people in the state to join, to bring pressure on Governor Abbott to allow a vote on independence from the bureaucracy of the United States federal government.

The movement has also increased its activities on social media to garner more support.  RT English News reports that the movement has managed to get over 200,000 likes on Facebook.

Currently, it is estimated that Texas’ economy is worth around $1.6 trillion. Proponents of the TNM claim this will make the economy of an independent Texas among the 10 top economies in the world, if it breaks away from the United States.

Just after the results in Britain showed an exit from the European Union, TNM President, Daniel Miller, said in a statement:

The win for Brexit opens the door for Texit by establishing, concretely, that it is possible to have an adult conversation on independence and letting the people have the final say. It is past time that the people of Texas had their say on our continued relationship with the Union and its sprawling Federal bureaucracy.

Miller said for more than a decade now, the TNM has been on the forefront of calling out the overreach and abuse of Texas by the Federal Government. According to him, unlike the professional complainers in the political class, TNM has proposed only one solution to the problem: Independence for the people of Texas.

Miller added:

It is past time that the Governor and the rest of the Legislature respond to the large number of Texans who want their say on the matter and give us a vote.

The Executive Director of the movement, Nate Smith, also added that TNM has the momentum to force an independence referendum. He pointed to the movement’s growing support base on social media and its daily activism since 2004.

Smith also revealed that for several years now, the movement has been receiving new supporters and volunteers at an unprecedented rate, and that the Brexit referendum has spread throughout the state, encouraging people to take similar action for their complete freedom.

Texas is one of the largest states in the southern part of the United States. The state was the 28th state to join the Union of the United States in 1845, after nine years of being an independent republic.

Since the TNM expressed the desire to have a referendum vote after Brexit, many people in other parts of the United States have said on social media that Texas cannot survive on its own as a republic. Some said the state had to even beg back into the Union, after it declared its first republic.

    This is stupid, and anyone that thinks Texas can secede is also stupid.

  2. The global elite love this kind of fantasizing. It’s a good fit for their plans to begin fracturing nation states. State sovereignty and fighting for decentralization via the 10th amendment is great, walking into a divide and conquer trap is another story.

    • Well said.

    • And where is your useless “10th amendment” getting you?……. (Crickets). The 10th is like a restraining order in an abusive marriage. Why depend on a piece of paper to defend you when a divorce makes FAR more sense?

      • Excellent for Texans if they are truly “awake”. How many know the long history of the deep state and 9/11 was a false flag? Probably 5% at the very most. If we’re using metaphors, then I prefer an nation state and global level infusion of TRUTH SERUM to every person on the planet. I’d rather give the body politic a wide spectrum antibiotic (truth) than start chopping off limbs to cure the disease. BTW, it’s no secret that TPTB are salivating at the thought of fracturing nation states and there are recent geopolitical examples of their handiwork. Gotta watch those double edged swords.

        TROLL ALERT.

  3. Why can’t the other 49 have the balls/courage Texas has? Years ago I ran commercial jobs in Texas. Decent folk, proud folk. I just wish I could talk my wife into moving there. They’ve even built a depository for holding onto your precious metal etc. FOR REALS – not via “markers” or paper “receipts”. Or any of the other tricks from the Wall Street leeches. The majority still worship from the Bible, not the demonic Talmud. The best for Texas. Any idiot who says they can’t secede is either a member of the Judas Class or doesn’t know the unique history of their deigning to join Sewer Nation.

  4. Secession, or threats of secession, would be a pretext for civil war and resultant martial law.
    Go ahead and google a Jade Helm map and you’ll notice Texas was designated as “hostile.”
    Coincidence?

    • No war will happen. US soldier trash can’t even defeat a few thousand goat herders in Afghanistan. They wouldn’t have a chance against 26 million armed and motivated Texans. Even the demonic DC Regime isn’t stupid enough to offer war as a response. But I guess you are.

      • Ever seen a video of a A-10 Warthog’s 30 mm cannon in action?

        I’m not sure why you felt a need to attack me, but thank you for your input.
        I didn’t say I was opposed to the principal of secession, nor endorse war, just that it would be good to think through the process.

        • Can you imagine the repercussions from around the world against The Regime if it started attacking its “own people” – the absolute worst possible publicity? That is one hypocrisy The Regime could never get away with.

        Your insult to U.S: troops is deplorable.

    • I do think you are right. It would be a pretext for civil war. One only needs to study history to see the future. Most people dont care to research history. However, ‘what goes around, always comes around’…

      • The last time anybody seceded from the USA, besides getting pretty ugly, martial law was imposed by Lincoln on the remaining Union states.
        If I was looking to revoke constitutional rights nationwide- including the Second Amendment- even limited, low-level skirmishes over secession would provide an excellent opportunity to pursue a broader or ulterior oppressive agenda.

  5. TEXIT, yes. The more the Usurped States subdivide the harder it will be for the zentral bankers to control. An independent state would be interesting to see what they come up with. I may have to move there, so long as they, vote out the fraudulent taxation scam of income tax and that thug agency the IRS.AND allow cannibis.

    I agree Paschn.

    • Try Alaska. No state income tax, and cannibis is legal to grow, legal to use, only not legal to sell. A trade, however…

  6. Well why not – as an old Texan once told me `We’ve got the oil and`we got the beef, we don’t need those damn yankees in Washington”

    So, if Texas wants to be a republic, how will it provide for its national defense, which it can not do under the Monroe Doctrine. That right there is a show stopper.

  8. If Texas actually had the balls to secede, it would be filled with wealth and patriots so fast they wouldn’t know what to do. Grab a shitload of nukes before you do it though.

    • Yep, those Ferals haven’t changed much since the 2nd War of Independence, they will Destroy you to ‘Save” you. It’s coming again, but this time the Northern “Rebels” will join up with their Southern brothers of Liberty. Lt.Gen. Nathan B. Forrest’s, Free Black personal security detail will even be standing up again. The friskiness is just around the bend if Frau Hilarity is sElected.

  9. Excellent post.
    Thanks for the information.

  10. d-word and r-word governments are the worst of the worst.
    d-word and r-word government means that anyone that can convince enough freedom haters to reduce your rights, then your rights will be reduced.
    We will have anti-medicine laws, speeding tickets, DUI checkpoints, the TSA, with a government trying to control what everyone does, says, and thinks.
    We will have wars against countries, groups of people, and social communication.
    .
    A better solution to TExit would be to restore the Constitution for the United States of America to strive to become a Limited Constitutional Republic with the words “Limited” and “Constitutional” being important.
