Ours is a National Movement and Texas is the Vehicle:
What if a good portion of the people in EVERY state wanted us to Secede and was willing to help? We would probably be successful. But what would make the other 49 states want to see Texas secede and why would they help us?
Do you think the states trying to stop the Federal Governments attack on the 2nd Amendment would find being sovereign helpful? Of course they would.
What about all the states fighting the Obamacare mandates or the EPA regulatory attack? Do you think they would help us to assert that Texas has always been a sovereign nation before and after the Constitution? If doing so would make it POSSIBLE for any states people that so desired to secede just by holding a popular vote.
It’s very simple all the states in the union are sovereign states according, to our founding fathers, and the laws that say so are still in place.
Once the federal government won the civil war, history was written by the victors to validate their position; effectively making the federal government into the master, and the people into the servants for more than 150 years, to date.
The people have allowed themselves to be indoctrinated into believing that they are not living in sovereign states by this re-written history and phrases like “under God, Indivisible” in the Pledge of Allegiance. (There are many others, please email me with yours.)
However, the LAW has not been changed – it has merely been suppressed; and therefore every state is legally a Sovereign State, BY LAW! The People of each state,being the supreme and final rulers of their OWN sovereignty BY LAW! Just as the Patriots of the individual American colonies rejected the British government’s claim of unquestionable authority over them in 1783, the individual Sovereign States can and should reject current governments claim of unquestionable authority over them.
Therefore, once Texas restores its sovereignty then each and every state will easily be able to restore their own because of the precedent it would establish. So that means that it is vitally important to all freedom loving people in all of the other 49 states that Texas is successful in its quest.
History shows us that the U.S. currency and the economy will implode when the debt-to-GDP ratio of reaches 90%-100%. When current administration took office, the ratio was 44%. It now stands at around 73%. Unless the feds stop the excess (fat chance, no pun intended) we have approx. 3-5 years more or less before the collapse occurs.
It would be nice to have the political class behind us but it is not necessary. With the advent of Social Media it is now within the power of the American people to organize and PEACEFULLY RESTORE our natural sovereignty that was originally fought for by our founding fathers.
In order for us to get the message out and force the Texas legislature to hold a non-binding vote we will need the help of all freedom loving Americans:

The federal government claims that The United States is a single sovereign nation, and that all of the states are a part of this nation.
However in reality, The United States were NEVER a single nation. But rather each STATE was always INDIVIDUALLY a sovereign nation in ITSELF, and the states NEVER simply part of a SINGLE nation called “The United States of America.”
This began with the Declaration of Independence, in which each of the thirteen colonies declared its self to be a free and independent state – respectively, and not in a collective sense of a single nation.
In the Declaration, we see that each of the 13 states is declared as “free and independent STATES” in the PLURAL; that is, EACH state was free and independent.
And they do so in the context of separate sovereign nations, by declaring that AS free and independent states, they therefore have powers, which ONLY accrue to actual sovereign nations. This obviously means that each state was declared a sovereign nation unto itself.
This was further certified by the Declaration’s chief author, Thomas Jefferson, in his famous work “The Kentucky Resolutions.” Here, Jefferson wrote that the states were NOT united on the principle of unlimited submission to their general government – which they WOULD have been, if they were simply parts of a single nation. Rather, Jefferson held that on the contrary, they WERE each individually sovereign, and therefore the federal government held NO supreme national power over them, except that which the states themselves voluntarily ALLOWED. And if anyone would know the true intended meaning of the Declaration of Independence, it would be Jefferson.
In addition to the Declaration of Independence, the fact of each state being a sovereign nation to itself was likewise expressly re-stated in the Articles of Confederation, which was adopted among the states in 1781.
In these Articles, each state officially and expressly retained its “sovereignty, freedom and independence” as a separate nation – which obviously means that they already had it to begin with. Meanwhile, all powers of congress were simply delegated by the individual states, not surrendered permanently.
This means, once again, that each state was a sovereign nation unto itself, and this confederated union was a strictly voluntary among them. Finally, once the colonists won the revolution against Great Britain in 1783, each state officially became a sovereign nation unto itself with the signing of the famous Treaty of Paris.
In this Treaty, the nations of Great Britain and France, as well as several other nations, formally recognized each of the states individually, by name, as being free, sovereign and independent states – again, as 13 separate sovereign nations unto themselves – rather than simply being parts of a SINGLE state, like they had been under Great Britain.
This treaty was the actual LAW that officially MADE each state into a sovereign nation unto itself, under INTERNATIONAL law and recognition. Finally, each state PROVED that it was a sovereign nation in 1787, when they signed the Constitution, since first they used their power as separate nations to SECEDE from the Articles of Confederation, and adopt the Constitution instead.
This fact is plain from the fact alone that the Confederation required unanimous consent of all thirteen states in order to change it, while the Constitution only required the ratifications of NINE or more states in order to carry it into effect between those ratifying states. If the states were not individual sovereign nations to themselves, then any one state could have stopped it.
Likewise, every state remained a sovereign nation under the Constitution, just like they did when they ratified the Articles of Confederation in 1781.
However this time, they simply didn’t need to expressly retain their sovereignty, since they had already become official sovereign nations in 1783 under the Treaty of Paris.
Likewise, the Constitution never once mentions that any state gave up its sovereignty by ratifying it, and neither is there a single mention of forming a sovereign state or nation by doing so. Could you imagine sovereign nations having to expressly retain their sovereignty in order to avoid losing it, every time they joined an international association or compact?
In fact, prior to ratification, the Constitution’s primary author, James Madison, expressly wrote in the Federalist papers that each state would remain a sovereign nation to itself under the Constitution, and that the Constitution would not form a sovereign nation over them.
Likewise, Madison later described each state as a sovereign nation when speaking on behalf of the Virginia Assembly, in his famous Report on the Virginia Resolutions; here he held that each state was a sovereign nation ruled by its people above any government.
Finally, Madison held that while the federal government was higher than state governments under the Constitution, this was only because the PEOPLE of the state authorized and permitted it via the Constitution– but that the People of a state were the ultimate SOURCE of the state’s sovereignty; and therefore as the state’s ruling sovereigns, the state’s People simply DELEGATED authority to state and federal governments – while the People themselves remained their state’s supreme rulers, who could step in and overrule the federal government, just like they could overrule their state government. This once again falls into accordance with the principles established under the Declaration of Independence, that governments derive their powers by consent of the People, and that the People therefore have the supreme power and right to alter or abolish their government as they see fit.
In conclusion, therefore, we see that each state was always a sovereign nation by law, both before and after the Constitution. Unfortunately, this fact was suppressed by elite politicians sometime around the 1820′s, when figures such as Daniel Webster and Joseph Story began revising American history in order to CLAIM that the United States was originally founded as a SINGLE nation – and that therefore the individual states were legally bound to obey the federal government, NO MATTER WHAT the state’s People said.
This false claim was eventually made into federal law under the Jackson Administration, which issued a false proclamation that contradicted all of American history as well as the Founding Fathers and Founding Documents alike.
Based on these false claims of history, President Jackson passed a so-called “Force Bill” through Congress, which gave the federal government supreme national authority over the states, authorizing itself to enforce federal law against every state through military coercion. This belief infested the federal government for almost 30 years until the Lincoln administration, which became the first presidential administration to actually use military force against the states to coerce them into obeying the federal government’s dictates, regardless of what the state’s PEOPLE decided.
In his First Inaugural Address, Lincoln drew from the works of these revisionists – namely Daniel Webster, Joseph Story and Andrew Jackson– in order to similarly revise American history, and claim that the federal government held supreme NATIONAL power over the individual states. Based on this sophistry, Lincoln claimed that secession was illegal, and he ordered a military invasion to suppress it.
And when the states subsequently exercised their sovereign right of national defense, he called it a “civil war.” In reality, Lincoln waged an illegal war against the sovereign states, and conquered them through simple imperialism.
Once the federal government won the war, history was written by the victors to validate this position; effectively making the federal government into the master, and the people into the servants for more than 150 years, to date.
However the LAW has NOT been changed– MERELY SUPPRESSED; and therefore each state is STILL a sovereign nation, by law; and the People of each state, are still the supreme and final rulers OF their state, by law. Just as the People of the individual American states rejected the British government’s claim of national authority over them in 1783,
WE ALSO have the legal right to reject the federal government’s claim of national authority over us today. The difference is that, unlike then, we don’t have to fight a revolution in order to do it; we simply need to recognize history the way it actually happened, and hold the state and federal government TO it – which they cannot deny, since it’s right before everyone in plain English.
Once we do this, we can finally take up our separate and equal stations which our founders and forefathers won for us – just as soon as we take it BACK from the governments who wrongfully stole it.
Now Watch the Video Overview:

Since each state is a sovereign nation, Texas and the other 49 states can secede simply by popular vote:
By petition from the Texas people and pressure from all freedom loving people in this nation the Texas Legislature can be forced to hold a non-binding vote on Texas secession. Since it is there in plain English and the law has not been changed the people can insist that a vote be held.
Then all that is left is to complete the 3 steps below:
Step 1: Assertion,
Specifically, the people of Texas will hold a state convention to assert that Texas is a sovereign nation to itself-while refuting the federal government’s claim of sovereignty over Texas, as noted in part 2. This convention will be held by petition among the voters of Texas. TEXAS PETITION FOR REDRESS OF SOVEREIGNTY
Texas will also assert that the federal Government is violating Texas sovereignty; and as Texas rightful sovereign rulers, the Texas people order that the federal government cease and desist from all such claim of sovereignty over Texas, and return to its duty as delegated authority.
In addition, the Texas convention will document Texas sovereignty as noted in part 2
Step 2: Recognition,
The federal government cannot refute such a claim because the law is written in plain English; therefore it can only do so by false argument; such as those currently used to date.
These can be refuted before the United Nations and World Court, as well as The Hague, in order to demand that other nations recognize Texas’s claim of rightful sovereignty under International law.
Step 3: Exercise,
Once Texas is recognized, we will be able to exercise all the powers of a fully sovereign nation.
All that is left then is to Nullify and Secede.
