We started the week with Libertarians leaving California and moving to tax-free Texas, Screwie Louie Gohmert’s tooth falling out, Texas bringing suit to end democracy as we know it, and now…
A Texas state lawmaker has vowed to introduce legislation allowing a referendum for voters to cast their ballots on whether to secede from the United States.
“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,” Texas state Rep. Kyle Biedermann (R) shared on Facebook on Tuesday.
Biederman said the legislation aligns with the Texas state Constitution, which reads “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.”
It seems like every couple of years Texas has a nutty and tries to secede, and demand that the rest of us beg them to stay. I’ve have enough of their tween-age drama.
I love Texas and Texans and I will miss them terribly, but I will be glad to point them to a USPS outlet so they can get change of address cards.
