Texas Republicans are pushing for a referendum to decide whether the state should secede from the U.S.
The demand for Texans to be allowed to vote on the issue in 2023 was one of many measures adopted in the Texas GOP’s party platform following last week’s state convention in Houston.

Under a section titled “State Sovereignty,” the platform states: “Pursuant to Article 1, Section 1, of the Texas Constitution, the federal government has impaired our right of local self-government. Therefore, federally mandated legislation that infringes upon the 10th Amendment rights of Texas should be ignored, opposed, refused, and nullified.
“Texas retains the right to secede from the United States, and the Texas Legislature should be called upon to pass a referendum consistent thereto.”
In another section on state governance, the platform states that Texas Republicans want the state Legislature to pass a bill in its next session “requiring a referendum in the 2023 general election for the people of Texas to determine whether or not the State of Texas should reassert its status as an independent nation.”

The myth that Texas can secede from the U.S. continues because of the state’s history of independence, according to The Texas Tribune. Texas declared independence from Mexico in 1836 and spent nine years as its own nation before becoming a U.S. state. Texas then seceded from the Union in 1861 before being readmitted following the end of the Civil War in 1870.
The U.S. Constitution makes no provision for states to secede and in 1869, the Supreme Court ruled in Texas v. White that states cannot unilaterally secede from the Union.
“If there was any constitutional issue resolved by the Civil War, it is that there is no right to secede,” the late Justice Antonin Scalia once wrote.

Still, modern secessionist efforts have continued in the state for decades—and calls to secede tend to become louder when a Democrat is a president, according to the Tribune.
It’s not clear how popular the effort is among Texans, but the Texas Nationalist Movement’s website claims almost half a million Texans support its work to “make Texas an independent nation again.”
The movement’s efforts have been promoted by Texas Republicans. Last year, state Representative Kyle Biedermann introduced a bill that called for a “Texit” referendum, which was endorsed by Texas GOP chairman Allen West. The bill ultimately failed.
The bill was rebuked by lawmakers on both sides of the aisle, with Republican state Representative Jeff Leach branding it a “disgrace to the Lone Star State” and the “very definition of seditious.”

As well as the issue of a referendum, delegates also voted on more than 270 platform planks as the convention closed on Saturday. The votes will be tallied and certified in Austin, but it is rare for a plank to be rejected, party spokesperson James Wesolek told The Tribune. He has been contacted for additional comment.
Texas Republicans also approved a resolution declaring that President Joe Biden was “not legitimately elected,” signaling the continued support for former President Donald Trump’s baseless claims of widespread fraud in the 2020 presidential election.
The Texas GOP’s new party platform also called for full repeal of the Voting Rights Act of 1965.
Other planks also indicated a further shift to the right for the party, giving prominence to culture issues. The platform describes homosexuality as “an abnormal lifestyle choice,” and also declares that the party opposes “all efforts to validate transgender identity.”

The platform also calls for a total ban on abortion and “equal protection for the Preborn.” Abortion is currently prohibited after around six weeks of pregnancy in Texas, but an imminent ruling from the U.S. Supreme Court could overturn the decision in Roe v. Wade that guaranteed abortion rights nationwide and trigger a law in Texas making abortion illegal.
The new Texas GOP platform also states that the education system should focus on “imparting essential academic knowledge, understanding why Texas and America are exceptional and have positively contributed to our world, and while doing so, also offer enrichment subjects that bless students’ lives.”
It calls for students to learn about the “Humanity of the Preborn Child,” including teaching that life begins at fertilization. It also demands that the state legislature pass a law prohibiting the teaching of “sex education, sexual health, or sexual choice or identity in any public school in any grade whatsoever.” [Newsweek]

Thank you, Comentakeit. You are completely correct about what you said. As a 6th generation Texan, I can tell you I am sick to death of those we didn’t elect destroying our country. Both sides of my family were ranchers and some raised horses that they sold to the Confederates during the civil war. My grandfather fought in the civil war. Before Texas became a state, several in that side of my family were Texas lawmen who protected the settlers from Indian attacks and from renegades from Mexico. They were considered the forerunners of the Texas Rangers. I have copies of two books written by relatives in my family. Many in our family participated in the cattle drives where they drove the cattle from the southwestern part of our state up to the Panhandle. I can guarantee you that my state has all the resources we need to survive as our own country again. I had rather see us secede than stay in the Union. At my age, I hope I will be in my grave before I see this nation completely torn apart. Too old to live through the times that I know are coming.
I say Texas secedes from the Union and forms its own constitution. That it calls for only legal American citizens to inhabit the State and dismisses all the illegals that live there. That it develops its own economic system with taxes, forms its own sovereign government, and services rendered to only the ones who contribute to its economy by working for a living, and paying into its own Social Security and retirement. And is to be paid to its own retirees. And no free hand outs. You must work and pay into the system otherwise you are not eligible to partake of the benefits. This is the way of the American way of life i’ve grown under, and known for 75 years of my life. It is called “equitable”.
Praying for Texas! Now, let’s get the rest of the conservative states to do likewise or Texas is going to be our new home!
The whole reason for the American civil war was the fight for states rights. The states lost and are forever subjugated to Federal control. The only way to break that Satan’s spell is revolution.
Where in the Constitution does it say that states cannot secede?
Does anyone know?
It is a SCOUTS ruling. Row vs wade shows they can change their mind!
I never get you guys. Why do you have to secede? You make Josef Biden “secede” from office. AND why do you leave your State? You make “them” leave your State!
Because Texas has the 9th largest economy in the world. We don’t need *you* anymore.
If Texas does secede it will never be able to cope with the millions of illegal aliens flocking across it’s borders from the north.
If you think Mexican immigrants arrive in numbers, wait till you see the American numbers.
one will need a TEXAS passport which will only be issued to native born TEXANS
How about us that have been here for 20 years? Are you saying we are not eligible?
Secession is the only solution to this pact with the devil we have currently. Red states need to leave the blue states. If only Texas secedes, I know people who say they’ll move to Texas.
What will happen if SCOTUS overturns Roe v. Wade? There will be riots and Martial Law soon.. Get cash from your banks now….
and Texas if separated from union 49 states will be followed.
Well Queen own Canada, Australia, EU and Asia , now wants
make Iran in to 30 nations as well… We never been free indeed.

The Federal government already seceded from the Constitution.
and the winner is
“The myth that Texas can secede from the U.S. continues because of the state’s history of independence, according to The Texas Tribune. Texas declared independence from Mexico in 1836 and spent nine years as its own nation before becoming a U.S. state. Texas then seceded from the Union in 1861 before being readmitted following the end of the Civil War in 1870.”
You have the myths mixed up. The real myth is that there was a civil war. A civil war, by definition, is competing factions fighting for control of the government. As the Confederate States had already legally seceded, they were not fighting for control of the government, rather to keep it from attaining rights they did not have. The US Supreme Court ruling of 1869 was unconstitutional, as are the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments, as the former Confederate States were under occupation and under martial law, thereby not functioning as states.
The real kicker, of course, is that the US government bombed Serbia to facilitate the breakup of Yugoslavia, claiming it was supporting democracy and the right to self determination for secession of Slovenia, Croatia, and Bosnia Herzegovina. Later, it recognized Kosovo’s declaration of independence which was made without a referendum. To suggest states within the US have no right to self determination is ridiculous. If that were true, the colonies had no right to secede from the United Kingdom. The Supreme Court decision of 1869 was a political statement, not a judicial ruling.
let them go if they want to and take their genius power-grid with them. maybe they will build a real wall on their way out.
This site is a Liberal Commiecunt POS why does Steve Quayle link to it & give it the time of day? More Leftist infiltration of the “Supposed Independent Media”.
From the article: …”Texas Republicans also approved a resolution declaring that President Joe Biden was “not legitimately elected,” signaling the continued support for former President Donald Trump’s – “BASELESS” – claims of widespread fraud in the 2020 presidential election.”
Who’s the unprofessional leftist political hack who penned this article? Is this what passes for objective journalism on this site?
This article is full of misinformation. There is no clause in the Constitution wherein the states ceded the right of secession. The 10th Amendment clearly states that States and the People retain ALL rights and powers not specifically granted to the Federal government. Therefore, the 10th Amendment preserves the right of ALL STATES to secede. Justice Scalia knew when he made his statement about the Civil War that constitutional issues are not decided by war. The constitution is not interpreted by war, nor amended by war. If the people want to terminate the right of cessation, it can only be done by amendment, as required in the Constitution.
Thank you Sir.
This writer loves being a Peon.
All 50 ‘states’ are actually 50 Nation-States which use a Common Constitution to protect themselves from a Federal Govt taking over!!!
Yes and precisely why the 2nd amendment
The CIA are the regime change specialists of the world. They control all branches of government and high level election results. They recruit heavily from Texas A&M, and George H.W. Bush did run CIA at one point.Texas won’t secede unless the CIA deems it so.
AH,TEXAS,WHAT A COUNTRY!
Before the War of Northern Aggression, the Constitution made government beholden to the people and the states. Afterward, the same Constitution had become a corrupted tool making the people and states beholden to the government.
Yep this harlot wants all her subjects beholden to her which includes all the UN states:
hey texas,no president is legitimate. get that thru your 10 gallon brains. all are bought and paid for with corporate money that you sheeple do not have.
The author, and a whole lot of people commenting here who are, through no fault of their own if ‘educated’ in the socialist brainwashing system we call ‘skewl’, need to read a few articles on this site: anavonreitz (.) com – search ‘Lincoln’, and you’ll find out where things went wrong. He’s not the hero most make him out to be, and Congress of our ORIGINAL government hasn’t been in lawful session since 1860.
Well stated, and thank you for the link. Are you familiar with black Confederate activist H.K. Edgerton? He has some interesting statements on the war and Lincoln.
If Texas goes we in Arizona want to come along.
Kentucky and Tennessee will go with Texas!
“Signaling the continued support for former President Donald Trump’s baseless claims of widespread fraud in the 2020 presidential election.”
LOL LOL LOL LOL. Never thought I’d see such a inane sentence on this site.
Exactly. Credibility of this site just went to below zero. “2,000 Mules”. AND Italian hacker using Leonardo military satellite…flipping/creating 13 million obiden votes out of thin air.
“Texas Republicans also approved a resolution declaring that President Joe Biden was “not legitimately elected,” signaling the continued support for former President Donald Trump’s baseless claims of widespread fraud in the 2020 presidential election.”
Baseless? Who wrote this &^%^$# propaganda piece?
Queen of London now owns USA and will be 50 countries….
We took the Bait shame on us… Alex Jones headquarter will be a new country thanks to for not exposing it?
No problem with Texas going on its own.. BUT, to get the votes to do it, you have to have a plan that protects the ones leaving the union.
Now how many of you will vote to leave if your Social Security is stopped? 401 K confiscated by the feds? Medicare plan gone?
Texas would have to be able to have the funds to stop the fear of Uncle sam taking away the money. It could be covered by selling oil and gas to the world. Lease some of our gulf coast ports. The list is bigger than these items.
These unfunded pensions are already gone. Over 21 trillion stolen by fedgov since the late 1990’s. It won’t be long and they won’t even try to keep up appearances.
Catherine Austin Fitts and Mark Skidmore can fill you in on the details.
Constitution of USA is God Dam a peace of paper Geroge W Bush? Now it does make sense.. Biden keep giving arms to Ukraine and when new atom bobs war come we have nothing to defend homeland?
I think the entire Heartland needs to join Texas in secession…the Libtards have lost their minds and if they come for us they will lose a lot more…
I’m Retired Military, ready to go active and take up arms for state of Texas if called upon, God blessed TEXAS….
Texas can leave the Union, here’s how. Texas had a contract with the United States to become a state. An example of part of that contract was the federal government had to follow the US Constitution, First Amendment, the federal government could not own any land but outside what the First Amendment stated. Which is why there is no BLM in Texas. In order for a contract to be legal there needs to be consideration and when Texas v White was in front of the high court there may have still been some consideration but that’s not the case today. Look at the mess created by the federal government has caused major damage to the state of Texas. And by refusing to uphold its Constitutional duty badly damaging the entire population of Texas Citizens. Zero consideration on behalf of the federal government which represents the binding of the Union. Texas is free to leave the Union and Texas v White no longer applies, like many SCOTUS rulings of the long ago past.
2023 my ass! DO IT NOW! Texas has the 9th largest economy in the world! let Texas go and all Texans will be much better off!
Texas, like every other state in the union has the right to run its own state under the general constitution the federal government only has powers within 10 sqaure miles of its center……the district of criminals……D. C., washington. Furthermore, under the constitution, the federal government’s extending powers into any given state or jurisdiction can only be done under the written agreement by that state or jurisdiction. (all the above previously, in my own simplified words)
as to the lection, this site states that President Trump’s “baseless claim’s”…..huh, guess this site is just another parrot that can not count. and yes, according to the limited hearings that WOULD NOT ALLOW actual people or video or math to be used in addressing the claims in court…….well, guess what kiddies? like Stalin said back in the day regarding voting, it isnt how many votes are cast for any one individual, its who counts the votes.
Texas is a state by treaty and not by ratification. Texas retained the right to secede when the treaty was written and accepted. It’ll be interesting to see where this goes!
Exactly! That’s why it’s called “The Lone Star” State. Most folks don’t know that.
Music to my ears. God Bless the Republic of Texas!
Hopefully Missouri will be soon to follow.
It doesn’t really matter whether the constitution addresses the right of Texas or anybody else to secede. The Federal government has walked all over the Constitution and says it’s a living document. But if the founding fathers gave the people the right to overthrow and reestablish government when it becomes abusive, then that would certainly include seceding from such an abusive Federal system, infiltrated by Americas enemies and which has no use for the Constitution anyway. The purpose of the Constitution was to tie the hands of those who would abuse their power in government. Not to tell the people what form of government they were allowed to establish for themselves.
You like most Americans were never taught what the Constitutions is and means.
I highly suggest the following to remedy that ignorance:
I’m a Native
I’m going home
Remember the last time they talked about secedeing? Ya winter storm “hell” if they vote TPTB WILL DO ALL THEY CAN TO SYOP IT OR DESTROY ITFIRST
No shite. What else would you expect?
Uh … no, it’s not a myth. The people of Texas have the right, under the Texas Constitution Article 1 Section 2 to determine the type of government they are going to live under. Scalia was wrong, and the court decision in 1869 was retribution for daring to stand up to the tyrant (yes, tyrant) Lincoln and the banksters.
Jefferson himself said if any state wished to leave the Confederacy (yes, it was called a Confederacy prior to the “union” word), then God bless them. The mythical “union” was a Hamiltonian term that was used to suppress any opposition to the federal govt. doing whatever it wanted to.
Read “The Problem With Lincoln” by Tom DiLorenzo. Also TEXIT by Daniel Miller.
Hey federal govt …. GO POUND SAND / oh, and COME AND TAKE IT!
Baseless my ass!
Who cares what the supreme court said on this! A lot of their rulings in the past have not followed the constitution! It doesn’t matter what they say anymore!
You would like to hear this message Michael. The supreme court is a farce:
That’s a fact. The Supreme inferior Court has ignored the Constitution and the truth for so long that they are completely irrelevant.
The Declaration’s fourth and final self-evident truth is that when a government destroys rather than secures its citizens’ unalienable rights, those citizens have a right to revolution. This follows logically from the preceding principles. Government exists to protect rights; if it isn’t doing this, the people should get rid of it and set up a new one.
Two other rights arise from the right to revolution. These rights are unstated in the Declaration but were endorsed by the entire founding generation: the right to keep and bear arms and the right to be governed, in local affairs, by local governments. James Madison wrote in Federalist no. 46: “Besides the advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation, the existence of subordinate governments, to which the people are attached and by which the militia officers are appointed, forms a barrier against the enterprises of ambition, more insurmountable than any which a simple government of any form can admit of.”
If they secede then I am moving to Texas!
I would add .. it was illegal for the Colonists to secede from Great Britain, and for the Texians to secede from Mexico and the tyrant Santa Anna.
Think about it.
But they did what they had to do anyway.
They won’t be the only state to secede.
Don’t mess with Texas.
The article states that the constitution doesn’t allow for the state to secede. However, this government doesn’t seem to care about the constitution or uphold it so that shouldn’t be a problem. Of course the liberal left are all hypocrites so I’m sure they’ll still act like it matters in this one instance
