I just attended a meeting of a Pro Texas Independence Group. What the organization has planned is their boldest move yet to see. This organization that seeks Texas independence with an orderly political divorce from Washington DC. These Hardcore Texans have tirelessly lobbied state law makers in both houses for the cause of sovereignty and Independence.
Even though these Texanâ€™s message has been graciously received by many state lawmakers agreeing with the need for Texas to secede. Still there are people in leadership positions that stand in the way of allowing bills of necessary importance that passed the house overwhelmingly only to be stalled never making it to the committee in the State Senate. This group who has labored spreading the message of Texans independence is now making a bold move bypassing the RINOs in Austin who are obstructing legislation of necessary importance going directly to the people of Texas. How can we? This is what you might be asking.
These hardcore Texans are starting a petition drive, The State law says they only need 75,000 signatures to get the measure on the state ballot in the primary election. Can we see a response beyond expectations making it possible for Texans to decide. A person does not have to be for Texas Independence to sign the petition. They are just saying let the people of Texas decide. In the Texas Constitution in Article 1 section 2 states very straight forward not mincing words saying:
All political power is inherent in the people, and all free governments are founded on their authority, and instituted for their benefit. 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.
This is what the petition drive is about. So the people can say in a loud voice telling the powers that be all political power is in the hands of the people, not the government.
