Texas Lawmaker Announces ‘Texit’ Bill That Would Allow Lone Star State to Leave the Union

Don’t mess with Texas.

A Texas state representative is working on legislation that would allow Texans to vote on a Brexit-style referendum to leave the Union and become a stand-alone nation.

Republican state representative Kyle Biedermann of Fredericksburg announced in a social media post on Tuesday that he is crafting a ‘Texit’ bill that would put secession on the ballot in Texas.

“The federal government is out of control and does not represent the values of Texans. That is why I am committing to file legislation this session that will allow a referendum to give Texans a vote for the State of Texas to reassert its status as an independent nation,” Biedermann wrote.

While Biedermann’s idea may be unconventional in this day and age, his legislation seems to be congruent with the plain text of the Texas state constitution.

Article 1, Section 1 of the Texas state constitution reads: “Texas is a free and independent State, subject only to the Constitution of the United States, and the maintenance of our free institutions and the perpetuity of the Union depend upon the preservation of the right of local self-government, unimpaired to all the States.”

Article 1, Section 2 could be read as an endorsement of sorts for secession: “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 pledged 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.”

Additionally, the Texas Republican Party has a plank that includes an explicit endorsement for the right of their free state to secede from the Union.

“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,” the platform states in its 65th plank.

“Texas retains the right to secede from the United States should a future president and congress change our political system from a constitutional republic to any other system,” the document states.

Big League Politics has reported on how Texas is leading the way in the fight against the Orwellian tyranny tha is sweeping over the U.S., including the heroic stand by patriotic salon owner Shelley Luther against asinine COVID mandates:

After the governor and attorney general intervened on her behalf, Dallas, Tex. salon owner Shelley Luther will be freed from jail per an order from the state supreme court…

Tex. Governor Greg Abbott and Attorney General Ken Paxton sprung into action after Luther was sentenced to a week in jail by an Obama-crony judge for opening her salon against government edicts.

“I find it outrageous and out of touch that during this national pandemic, a judge, in a county that actually released hardened criminals for fear of contracting COVID-19, would jail a mother for operating her hair salon in an attempt to put food on her family’s table,” Paxton said.

“The trial judge did not need to lock up Shelley Luther. His order is a shameful abuse of judicial discretion, which seems like another political stunt in Dallas. He should release Ms. Luther immediately,” he added.

“Compliance with executive orders during this pandemic is important to ensure public safety,” Abbott said in a statement on Wednesday. “However, surely there are less restrictive means to achieving that goal than jailing a Texas mother.”

“Throwing Texans in jail who have had their businesses shut down through no fault of their own is nonsensical, and I will not allow it to happen,” Abbott explained. “That is why I am modifying my executive orders to ensure confinement is not a punishment for violating an order.”

If the vote steal cannot be overturned, secession must become a mainstream option for conservatives who have had enough of leftist treason.

Texas Attorney General Sues Biden Administration to Stop ‘Unlawful’ Open Border Policies

Ken Paxton is fighting back.

Published

on

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announced on Friday that his state is filing a lawsuit to stop President-imposed Joe Biden’s administration’s open border policies that are being enacted at breakneck speed.

“In one of its first of dozens of steps that harm Texas and the nation as a whole, the Biden administration directed DHS to violate federal immigration law and breach an agreement to consult and cooperate with Texas on that law. Our state defends the largest section of the southern border in the nation. Failure to properly enforce the law will directly and immediately endanger our citizens and law enforcement personnel,” said Attorney General Paxton.

“DHS itself has previously acknowledged that such a freeze on deportations will cause concrete injuries to Texas. I am confident that these unlawful and perilous actions cannot stand. The rule of law and security of our citizens must prevail,” he added.

Paxton is accusing the Biden administration of violating the U.S. Constitution by suspending deportations of illegal aliens. He says that this illegal policy shift will hurt Texas citizens by leaving them vulnerable to dangerous third-world migrants more apt to commit violent crimes.

Big League Politics has reported on Biden’s unprecedented push for amnesty, which could mean the final death blow for the U.S. Republic:

President-elect Joe Biden will introduce amnesty legislation for the more than eleven million illegal aliens residing in the United States on the first day of his presidency, according to pro-illegal immigration activists. The legislation will contain a means to provide citizenship to nearly every alien in the country, which they’ll receive through a glorified paperwork process.

It’s expected that the illegals who will qualify for amnesty will be as many as eleven to twenty million, with estimates varying widely over the number of aliens in the United States. Biden has pledged to forego deportation for any alien in the country, with the exception of those convicted of felonies.

If the king-sized amnesty bill fails to get anywhere, Democrats have prepared a more reserved plan to legalize more than 5 million illegals they’re defining as essential workers. Congressional Democrats have varying opinions on the prospects of passing major immigration amnesty legislation, with Biden’s primary focus likely to be placed upon coronavirus relief, a split Senate, and a razor-thin Democratic House majority.

Immigration activists have demanded that nearly every illegal alien in the country be provided United States citizenship within five years, while Kamala Harris reportedly revealed the Biden amnesty plan will require those who flouted the law to wait for eight years.

Biden is likely to sign a glut of executive orders providing leniency to illegal aliens, including an extension of the DACA program that’s been continuously litigated over throughout Donald Trump’s presidency.

Migrant caravans have already begun the journey from Central America to the United States, eager to receive free welfare and citizenship benefits from a incoming President who has promised to make generous concessions to illegal aliens.

Texas is at least one state with a Republican Party that will stand up against the Biden regime. More states need to join them to even have a chance of stopping America’s downfall.
