The Texas Nationalist Movement Is Helping Me Declare My Independence Today!

Last month I blogged about talk about Texas seceding from the American Union after reading an article in the Seattle P-I that sort of tongue in cheekedly went over some of the pros and cons of Texas no longer being part of the United States.

A pair of Texas Nationalists commented to that blogging this morning. Their comment included a link to their Texas Nationalist Movement website. That website contained some amusingly interesting content. First the comment, then the content....

RJ, TNM has left a new comment on your post "Is America Making A Case To Kick Texas Out Of The Union?": 

Durango, Shouldnt worry what others think of you when your right. Don't want a complex! Check us out and you decide if we are as bad as that article claims. Perhaps they're just jealous, most are.

Content from the Texas Nationalist Movement website.....

The objective of the Texas Nationalist Movement is the complete, total and unencumbered political, cultural and economic independence of Texas. It is to restore Texas to its rightful status as an independent state according to Article 1 Section 1 of the Texas Constitution, guaranteeing the individual rights of every Texan, and achieve our place as a nation among nations as promoted by Sam Houston. It is to fulfill our national destiny and achieve the greatness envisioned by our Founding Fathers, desired by this generation of Texians and required by future generations to live in freedom. It is to be an independent light in a world that is being plunged into darkness.

The Texas Nationalist Movement works to:
  • promote, secure and protect the political, cultural and economic independence of the nation of Texas
  • restore and protect a constitutional Texas
  • defend the inherent and inalienable rights of the people of Texas
  • promote the values of Texas nationalism

Nationhood - Texas is a state with a distinct culture, economy and government.

Independence - Texas should always be politically, culturally and economically independent.

Individualism - The basic political building block of Texas is the individual.

Entrepreneurialism - The basic economic building block of Texas is the entrepreneur.

Family - The basic cultural building block of Texas is the family.

Inherent Rights - Texas is the embodiment of natural rights.

Values - Texas adheres to the values of fortitude, loyalty, righteousness, prudence, and broadmindedness.

Primacy of Cause - Texas Nationalism is the primary secular cause of all Texans and is distinct and superior to all other secular causes.

Primacy of Nation - The interests of Texas supersede the interests of all other nations and states.

Nature of Government - All political power is inherent in the Texan people, and all free governments are founded on their authority, and instituted for their benefit. The Texan people have at all times the inalienable right to alter, reform or abolish their government in such manner as they may think expedient.

Historical Foundation - Texas' unique history serves as the foundation for our current and future greatness.

Indomitability - There is no challenge that cannot be overcome by the individual initiative and collective will of Texans.

TNM must be doing something right. I too am proud to be a member. Remember, there's no "bad" publicity...just publicity. In this case, barely. But thanks anyway!
