Texas Nationalist Movement's Official Response To White House Petitions Saying No to SecessionSubmitted by realman2020 on Tue, 01/15/2013 - 11:15
The White House recently responded to a petition on their "We The People" website regarding the issue of Texas independence. Below is the official response from the Texas Nationalist Movement.
The people of Texas adhere to the principle espoused in Article 1 Section 1 of the Texas Constitution which says, "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."
In the absence of a Constitutional prohibition to a State asserting its independence and with the firm knowledge that the actions of the Federal Government represent an definite impairment to the right of local self-government, the Obama administration's response to the petition for secession for Texas represents yet another argument in favor of Texas independence.
