Did you know that Texas, the mainland U.S.A.'s largest state, was its own country during the mid-1800's? What if Texas resumes being its own country, liberated from the U.S.A.? Texas' economy would be somewhere around the world's 14th largest, and arguably even larger due to its liberation from Washington D.C.'s spendthrift, vote-buying ways. Indeed Texas, thanks in part to its Constitutional ban against a state income tax, still creates the vast majority of new jobs in the U.S.   Meanwhile Texas is the only U.S. mainland state with its own electricity / power grid, and it has abundant petroleum and agricultural resources too. Texas also has the U.S.A.'s most commercially active port, the world's largest medical center and a growing commercial space sector that could succeed without, if not altogether outperform (jealously monopolistic and bureaucratic) NASA.   Interestingly enough, in 2015 Texas' legislature established the first state-run gold depository in the entire U.S.A. As far as national defense goes, the Lone Star State already has the Texas State Guard (which answers only to the governor), the Texas National Guard, the Air Guard and the Texas Rangers. Should Texas continue getting its future increasingly mortgaged by central planners over a thousand miles away in Washington D.C.? Why does Texas not resume being its own country so that it can better focus on paying down its own debts? Isn't it time for a Texit?

new Can you believe how much larger Texas is than some prominent countries around the world?
These comparative maps are interesting to view...

Did you know that the Texas Constitution says the following?

"Article 1, Sec. 2. INHERENT POLITICAL POWER; REPUBLICAN FORM OF GOVERNMENT. All political power
is inherent in the people, and all free governments are founded on their authority, and instituted for their benefit. The faith of
the people of Texas stands pledge
d to the preservation of a republican form of government, and, subject to this limitation only,
they have at all times the inalienable right to alter, reform or abolish their government in such manner as they may think expedient.
"

Interestingly enough, the Texas Nationalist Movement (TNM) maintains an interesting & informative list
of questions & answers regarding secession here.

Did you know that the Libertarian Party of Texas' platform officially states the following?

http://www.lptexas.org/state-platform

"IV.1.c. Texas Independence.
Libertarians fully support the rights of the people to alter their form of government.
As the U.S. federal government is increasingly expanding its influence well beyond
its Constitutional authority and clearly violating citizens’ rights as guaranteed by the
Bill of Rights, the right of the people of Texas to alter their form of government,
as stated in Article I Section 2 of the Texas Constitution, must be acknowledged
by allowing Texans to have an honest and frank discussion on the merits of
independence and being allowed to vote accordingly to reassert Texas’ Independence."

They have a growing quantity of political candidates in Texas, too...

Would you like to see the Texas secession referendum issue make it onto a major political party's upcoming primary ballot?

Did you know that even before the latest federal government shutdown,
48% of Texas Republicans surveyed already favored secession?

Feel free to contact a local chapter of the Republican Party here in Texas to request
that they please help set up a secession petition signing event in your area...

A growing quantity of media outlets has covered Texas seceders' electoral referendum petition drive. Here are some:

Dallas Morning News article; Fox News article; Texas Monthly article; Texas Tribune article;
etc.

Incidentally, according to this source, "of the 46 [secession] referendums held worldwide since 1905,
42 have resulted in a new independent country being formed – with two of the remaining four “no” results later reversed".

Below is a (growing) list of political candidates in Texas
