Texas leave US

By Amando Flavio | We Are Anonymous

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 confusion state. 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 an independent Texas to be 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 Millersaid 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 over a decade now, the TNM has been on the forefront of calling out the overreach of 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.

    I’d like to see the people of USA hold their government accountable period.

  2. Cool! See ya, losers!

    Tear up all federal highways, currency,mail service, utilities and good luck with any disaster assistance.

    • Lol… All hail the USA… Indoctrinated much guy?

    • Benjamin Jason LaMora there’s the door, if it’s so bad here

    • and build the wall further north…….

    • Walls are unnecessary and calls to secede are pointless, fear based lunacy.

      I’m sick of the levels of accepted stupidity in this country.

    • Mayse Vila Mayse Vila says:

      Pat Gallagher are you familiar with what happened in UK because they wanted to be out of EU. The country has been divided by people that follow Murdoch manipulated news and the ones they bother to research the information the media and politicians give. It has been all based in lies and now the working class is going to suffer the more with higher tax. I hope Trump followers realise he doesn’t have a plan either.

    • Mayse Vila the working class in this country, myself included, have been screwed for the past 30 years.

      Trump and Hillary are the same empty-headed, power mad buffoons.

      All of you “enlightened” that are so Lucy more informed don’t know shit about the real world.

      More pomposity and self-righteousness

  3. Yeah they’ll be an independent country that minds its own business and doesn’t bomb other countries and police the world unlike the U.S.

  4. Oh great evidently they haven’t read or seen the repercussions of the Brexist!!!

  5. Bye, don’t let the door hit you

  6. Sonny Cheeba Sonny Cheeba says:

    Would actually be a great move for them, considering size, location, and GSP (2nd in USA, but 10th in world). F’d up move on their part, but doable…

  7. Dane Harlan Dane Harlan says:

    Hell yeah, then they can just kill all the Mexicans that come over their border. Instead of just wanting to

  8. I’m from Texas and all of us aren’t CRAZY! I really wish all the people in Texas that wants this would pack up and move.

  9. Doug Chapman Doug Chapman says:

    Pretty sure Idaho would be second 🙂

  10. Steve Barnes Steve Barnes says:

    I hear a lot about this and I’m sure a lot of it is (like in South Africa) people angry at the US government and as usual they are overreacting. Obama will be gone after this year anyway and Texas leaving the US is a bad idea because it could lead to worse things. Texas needs the US and the US needs Texas!!!

    • No, Texas does not need the US. It is exactly the opposite. It is why they are the only state that CAN leave the union. Was put in writing when they joined the United States that should they desire at any for any reason and would split into 5 states of their own and become it’s own country. The United States of Texas. True

    • Steve Barnes Steve Barnes says:

      I am a die hard Texan and you can carve this in stone… IT’S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN!!! Both Texas and the US stand to lose too much if it happens and Texas’ transition into another country would be way too costly in so many different ways. They would have to change almost everything. People need to look at the big picture and CHILL OUT!!!

  11. Mayse Vila Mayse Vila says:

    Well I advised those people to see the consequences of this exit. I live in UK and the country is divided, the politicians did not have a plan because they knew they are going to lose out leaving and they just were playing poker to get a better deal. UK is gonna suffer as consequence as the working class is going to be the one who is going to lose the most. Very sad but the truth.

  12. This is bullshit, we are all apart of the same species. Why the Fuck are we separating into small minorities with different belief structures? We should all be aspiring to be able to live together in peace without concern for each other’s beliefs, by separating mankind into these minority groups, we are going to turn on each other over the belief structure each minority runs their system on. Just like it has every time in history.

  13. Mark Baker Mark Baker says:

    Lol good luck with that, ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

  14. Texas was not inspired by brexit! They have always wanted to break away and be the “lone star state”.

  15. …then we’d need a big-ass wall to keep all the Texans out 🙂

    Going back to the cowboy days I’m in
