Texans have a unique appreciation for freedom. We offer a large bulk of volunteers to the U. S. military and feel we deserve better than what we get from the federal government. When the topic of independence arises we hear the retort "How could Texas survive on its own". The reply is simple, "Very easily. How can Texas continue to survive being a member of a dying body?" Texas is vastly under-appreciated by her fellow states. It seems others either love us or hate us. Recently I read an observation that an outpouring over Texas "arrogance" ranged from "send in troops to crush their spirits" to "let them go, good riddance." But not once did anyone say, "We are all Americans." They refuse to acknowledge Texas' contributions. Due to our productivity and fairly sound business policies, Texas is the "life support machine" to states who practice irresponsible fiscal behavior. They fail to realize that they need Texas; Texas does not need them. As the cynic says, "a friend in need is a friend we don't need."

The world's history is full of massive empires gone by. As they collapsed, their citizens carved out niches of land and said "this is our home." The trend continues today. Most recently the people of Sudan had a falling out and their people voted on separation. South Sudan was created. The people (and even their government) basically agreed "we aint mad. We just want to determine our own destiny." And so they have embarked into autonomy in a bloodless election.

Perhaps you can balance a pyramid on its head, but it will not be long before it blows over. And so it is with governments; when the government becomes bigger than its base, it is only a matter of time before the winds of change tip the balance and the entire system is altered forever.

People of Texas are tired of going to elections and having to decide who is the least worst candidate. Because of the bloat of Washington D. C. where they have surrounded themselves with so much red tape that improvement is impossible and freedoms are lessened, I joined the Texas Nationalist Movement. Texas can do better. Texas deserves better.

John Steinbeck once noted that "Texas is a nation in every sense of the word." A famous Texan once said, "Texas is the finest portion of the globe that has ever blessed my vision." That was Sam Houston in 1833, before they were faced with the War of Independence. And it is still true today. He later said, "Texas will again lift its head among the nations. It ought to do so, for no country upon the globe can compare with it in natural advantages."

These are words that help source the "Texas Nationalist" pride. We are the Lone Star. We hold dear our constitution which says in Article 1, Section 2: "All political power is inherent in the people ..... they have at all times the inalienable right to alter, reform or abolish their government in such manner as they may think expedient."
