“A group of Texas secessionists is hitting the road to bring their message of a Lone Star nation to more than 20 cities across the state.
Today, the Texas Nationalist Movement is kicking off their “Take Texas Back Tour,” with speaking dates booked at hotels and other venues throughout North, East and Central Texas. The group says it aims to collect signatures to get Texas secession on the 2016 ballot. That isn’t actually possible—only the legislature can get referendums on the ballot in Texas—but the separatists hope to court volunteers and supporters across the state. …”
The Texas Nationalist Movement is more of a civic nationalist group, but at this point it doesn’t matter. Texas can either secede from the Union or be enveloped by Mexico. Texas needs its own government to regain control of its borders.
Note: Texas might find a friendly partner in Putin’s Russia which is already understandably fond of drawing analogies between Crimea’s secession from Ukraine and Texas secession from Mexico.
