|2021-03-11||Texas Independence Referendum Act||Personal visit||Cody stated that he is opposed to independence because he "swore an oath to the constitution." Even when reminded that HR1 would remove the rights of the state of Texas to run its own elections and would make electing a Republican to federal office, even in Texas, he still said he would stand by that oath. He did say that he would not vote against HB1359, but he has not decided if he would vote in support or abstain from voting altogether.|
|2021-03-12||Texas Independence Referendum Act||Phone conversation||Mr.Taylor the state legislator director said that they will be looking into it if it gets a committee hearing to make their final decision on HB1359|
|2021-03-12||Texas Independence Referendum Act||Phone conversation||Update I texted cody vasut
here are the following messages for the conversation
Me:Hey Mr.Cody vasut Why are you opposed to HB1359 ? It Goes along with Article 1 section 2 of The Texas Constitution, which states the following.
Sec. 2. INHERENT POLITICAL POWER; REPUBLICAN FORM OF GOVERNMENT. 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.
Why are you against our right to vote on the issue of TEXIT? This is the very definition of allowing we the people of Texas to Vote on reforming our government to our benefit
Cody response:.Hi! I’m actually not opposed to HB 1359 and will not vote against it if it makes it to the floor. I do wonder if it is constitutional under the Texas Constitution because I’ve always been told you have to amend the constitution to authorize a binding referendum, but I understand the Bill author believe his current draft works.
I don’t know if I’ll co-author the bill, vote for it, or simply abstain, but I certainly will not vote no on it.
Me:Well I'm here to tell that Mr Vasut There's people here in Southern Brazoria.county that are for it and want you to co sign it. I just spoke to a Hispanic father and a husband who works for an Oil and Gas company sir he said he would vote yes for Texas Independence
.When i told him your position on this bill , He was left speechless knowing that our state rep that is supposed to represent the people in House District 25 was not a strong supporter for HB1359. Mind you this same father is usually not involved into politics but giving the fact that his industry has been hit harder than ever from the federal government he wants to vote in November for HB1359 .This can bring hope to the future of his family , children knowing that Texas will be a place of prosperity ,job opportunities, and where freedom still rings. This father is from Lake Jackson TX and he represents many more people here in your district that would atleast want to vote on this issue and want you to co sign HB1359. I personally did a block walk here in lake jackson passing out information about TEXIT and I got more people that are interested into it and saying yes then the few people who said no to HB1359. Folks never thought this could be a possibility until now. I can assure you they will be extremely disappointed if you do not co sign HB1359
cody vasut last response: Understood.|
|2021-03-15||Texas Independence Referendum Act||Phone conversation||have sent this text message today pertaining to the federal government hoping to start a conversation about HB1359 but he has not responded back
Honedtly I don't even think in 5 years we will have Texas as Texas as we know it sir . Is Washington DC really repairable?
the federal government are encouraging lawlessness and they are not going to stop it anytime soon they will continue to let this happen until they can destroy Texas economically, culturally, politically.
In my opinion he is no better than Dennis bonnen. He needs to GO. He's a typical politician that does lip service.|

|2021-04-09||Texas Independence Referendum Act||Personal visit||He said he doesn't know whether he would abstain from it or vote yes on it. He also said there Needs to have an HRC with it to ammend it.
Cody vassut in my opinion is a very shifty lawyer who loves to try act like he's your friend and shares your concerns but he really doesn't.|
