Texas Nationalists call on Gov. Abbott to support Texit vote:

AUSTIN – In the wake of the decision by British voters to exit the European Union (Brexit) on Thursday, the Texas Nationalist Movement is formally calling on the Texas Governor to support a similar vote for Texans.

“It is past time that the people of Texas had their say on our continued relationship with the Union and its sprawling Federal bureaucracy,” said Daniel Miller, President of the TNM.

“The win for Brexit opens the door for Texit by establishing, concretely, that it is possible to have an adult conversation on independence and letting the people have the final say.”

Bolstered by a surge of support for a vote on independence and the Brexit victory, the TNM believes that it is time for a referendum on the issue.
