It’s a thing. Texas considers a Bill to once again become a fully independent nation.
Texas Republican Bryan Slaton has presented a bill that could set up a referendum to “investigate the possibility” of independence for the state of Texas from the US. Should the proposal be approved, a vote on whether to explore the option to leave the Union will be scheduled.
The bill, which state representative Slaton posted to Twitter on Monday, is officially titled the ‘Texas Independence Referendum Act’ – or ‘Texit’ for short. If it passes, the referendum on whether Texas “should reassert its status as an independent nation” will be scheduled for November 7, 2023.
Under the Texas constitution “all political power resides in the people,” Slaton wrote. “After decades of continuous abuse of our rights and liberties by the federal government, it is time to let the people of Texas make their voices heard,” he said.
Independence does not please standard-issue Repubs!
Not all Republicans are on board with the idea, however. Fellow state representative Jeff Leach slammed Slaton’s bill. “This ridiculous bill is the very definition of hypocritical and seditious treason and it is already dead,” he tweeted.
“Treason!” he cucked, cuckingly.
But, no. What’s already dead is that thing called the United States. Look for much more of this, some of it taking effect, as the Balkanization commences. 2033 draws near.
