Texas Lawmaker Will Introduce Referendum to Secede from U.S.

by Catherine Smith


A Texas state lawmaker has vowed to introduce a referendum for voters to cast their ballots on whether to secede from the United States.

On Tuesday, Rep. Kyle Biedermann (R-Fredericksburg) told his supporters on Facebook that he is committed to authoring legislation in the 2021 legislative session.

“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 said in a statement.

“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.”

Efforts to secede have been championed by the Texas Nationalist Movement, an organization who have promoted the idea for 20 years, and the 87th Texas Legislature has seen hundreds of such motions presented to them in the past.

Texas has left the Union once before. After becoming a state in 1845, the Lone Star State left the United States and joined the Confederate States of America in 1861. After the Civil War and Reconstruction, Texas was fully readmitted into the Union in 1870.

    Admiral Chester Nimitz would not be amused!

    Secession from the United States did not work out well the last time. Ironically this comes as Texas is rapidly becoming much more like the US as a whole.

    This is headed to 49S, 123 W (Point Nemo, the “pole of inaccessibility” of the Pacific Ocean, and a destination for satellites deliberately decommissioned and destroyed.

    I wish Texas would stop talking about seceding and actually DO it already.

    The federal government has just legalized voter fraud, and the Supreme Court just told all those who were negatively impacted by it to shove it.

    Rep. Biedermann your dissatisfaction with the political hacks in Washington D.C. has clouded your senses. Secession would be a lose, lose for the state of Texas. Instead use your time & efforts in a manner that will impede any and all socialist moves by the socialist/democrats taking office.

    Chicoms want us divided. Makes it easier for them to take us over. Think hard on this secession.

      There are those who will say that the GOP in Congress will be a powerless element. If that were so, then why elect them?
