About

For generations, Texans dreamed of Texas becoming an independent, self-governing nation-state free from the control of the bureaucrats and political class in Washington, D.C. Before 2005, there was no organization exclusively dedicated to making it a reality. Then the Texas Nationalist Movement was born.

"We work to secure and protect the political, cultural and economic independence of the nation of Texas and to restore and protect a constitutional Republic and the inherent rights of the people of Texas."

Texas Nationalist Movement Mission Statement; November 5, 2005

Our Principles

The Texas Nationalist Movement was founded on set of unshakeable principles that guide all of our work.

  • Nationhood
    The people of Texas constitute a distinct nation by every definition of the word, with a distinct culture, economy and system of governance.
  • Independence
    Texas should always be politically self-governing, culturally distinct, and economically independent.
  • The Source of Political Power
    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.
  • 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
    Every Texan possesses inherent and inalienable rights and should have the ability to exercise those rights as they choose.
  • Primacy of Our Cause
    Texas Nationalism is the primary secular cause of all Texans and is distinct and superior to all other secular causes.
  • Primacy of Our Nation
    The interests of Texas supersede the interests of all other nations and states.
  • Indomitability
    There is no challenge that cannot be overcome by the individual initiative and collective will of Texans.
  • Foundation of Greatness
    Texas' unique history serves as the foundation for our current and future greatness.

Our
Work

Since our inception the Texas Nationalist Movement has connected with hundreds of thousands of Texans, conducted thousands of media interviews, participated in international conferences on self-determination, and grown the movement for Texas independence into one of the largest in the world. In fulfilling our mission, we have given a home to all Texans who believe that Texas would be better off as an independent nation.

ORGANIZING THE NATION

Since our inception we have worked to connect with all Texans who want to see a free and independent Texas. Through our efforts we have registered 384,553 TEXIT supporters.

TEXIT REFERENDUM

We literally wrote the book on how to make TEXIT happen and have worked ceaselessly to get Texans a vote on independence. The TNM drafted first-of-its-kind legislation and have fought every session to get it introduced and passed by the Texas Legislature.

BETTER GOVERNMENT

From the day of our founding, the TNM has fought to hold government officials at every level accountable to the people who elected them. Starting in 2012, we began recruiting, fielding, and supporting pro-Texas, pro-TNM candidates for public office.

HELPING TEXANS

The TNM believes that strong communities are the backbone of a strong nation. We believe that Texans can take care of our fellow Texans better than any federal program. Since 2005 our volunteers have assisted in recovery and relief efforts throughout Texas.
