The TEXIT REFERENDUM

In poll after poll, Texans have spoken on the issue of independence. It’s time that we put it to a fair and public vote on whether Texas wants to stay under the thumb of Washington bureaucrats or embrace a future of freedom and independence as an independent, self-governing nation.

The Texas Independence Referendum Act is a piece of proposed legislation that will give Texans the ability to vote on becoming an independent, self-governing, nation-state. The most comprehensive piece of self-determination legislation ever introduced in any State of the United States, it is modeled after the UK Referendum Act and the Scottish Referendum Act, as well as previous proposals submitted by the TNM.
