It may come to a surprise to many people, but not everyone is happy with the United States government.
There is one state in particular that has a long history of independence that may be ready to do something about it.
It is the only state that entered the union by contract and the only state that has existed as an independent nation before. It is the only state that retains sovereign rights over its minerals, natural resources, and its maritime borders.
It is also the only state that is permitted to fly its state flag at the same height as the US flag; and it is the only state whose capitol dome is higher than the one in Washington D.C.
WaPo picks up the story…
When Texas Republicans assemble for their state convention next month, it’s possible they will debate whether Texas should secede from the United States.
That’s because 22 counties voted on motions to include secession in the Texas Republican Party platform. WaPo covers some of the long history of the Texas Independence movement and then picks up the story of the modern effort…
The Texas Nationalist Movement took over from there and has advocated a more political approach. It has attempted to get language advocating for secession on GOP primary ballots, and every four years, it’s tried to prod a skeptical and reluctant Texas Republican Party to debate secession at its state convention.
So far, things seem to be going according to plan.
The Texas Nationalists report a 400% jump in membership and secession bumper stickers have become common on Texas roadways. Today the movement counts more than 200,000 members. As federal outrages grow, more and more Texans seem to be warming to the idea of becoming a republic once again.
