New Texas GOP Platform Pushes for State Sovereignty, Independence Referendum

Published on


It’s official… again. Two planks calling for a vote on TEXIT are officially in the 2024 Platform of the Republican Party of Texas.

The official platform, released today, reflects the rising tide for Texas independence. Delegates at the 2024 Republican Party of Texas Convention voted to include two planks in their platform focused on state sovereignty and the right to pursue independence from the United States. This decision marks a significant shift towards asserting Texas’ autonomy and the possibility of secession.

Emphasizing State SovereigntyPlank 20: State Sovereignty

The new platform plank underscores Texas’ commitment to its sovereign rights. Article 1, Section 1 of the Texas Constitution states that the federal government has overstepped its bounds, infringing upon Texas’ right to local self-government. The plank asserts:

“Pursuant to Article 1, Section 1, of the Texas Constitution, the federal government has impaired our right of local self-government. Therefore, federally mandated legislation that infringes upon the 10th Amendment rights of Texas shall be ignored, opposed, refused, and nullified. Texas retains the right to secede from the United States, and the Texas Legislature should be called upon to pass a referendum consistent thereto and pass the Texas Sovereignty Act as filed in the 88th Legislative Regular Session as HB 384.”

This language clearly conveys that Texas will actively resist federal overreach and maintain its right to self-governance.

Path to IndependencePlank 203: Texas Independence

This plank is a step towards Texas reasserting its status as an independent nation. It calls on the Texas Legislature to pass a bill in the next session that will require a referendum in the next General Election after the bill is passed. The specific language of the plank reads:

“The Texas Legislature should pass a bill in its next session requiring a referendum in the next General Election for the people of Texas to determine whether or not the State of Texas should reassert its status as an independent nation. This referendum should be a legislative priority.”

This inclusion signals a significant move towards actualizing the long-held dream of many Texans for independence.

Potential Impact on TEXIT in the Next Legislative Session

The inclusion of these planks in the Republican Party of Texas Platform is a major step that could have far-reaching implications for the TEXIT movement in the next legislative session. Here’s how:

Increased Legislative Support: With the official backing of the Republican Party of Texas, there is likely to be increased support from legislators who may have been previously hesitant. This formal endorsement can embolden more lawmakers to sponsor and support the necessary legislation.

Mobilization of Voters: The commitment to a referendum on Texas independence will likely mobilize voters who support TEXIT, increasing grassroots pressure on legislators to act in favor of the referendum. The anticipation of a potential vote on independence can energize and expand the movement’s base.

Priority Legislative Agenda: As Plank 203 declares the independence referendum a legislative priority, it is expected to be at the forefront of the legislative agenda. This prioritization ensures that the topic of Texas independence will receive significant attention and debate in the legislature.

Public Discourse and Education: The formal inclusion of these planks will undoubtedly heighten public discourse around Texas independence. This will provide the Texas Nationalist Movement and other advocates with a broader platform to educate the public on the benefits and logistics of an independent Texas.

The Road Ahead

This historic vote at the 2024 Republican Party of Texas Convention represents a substantial shift towards enhancing state sovereignty and exploring the potential for Texas to operate as an independent nation. It reflects the growing sentiment among Texans for greater autonomy and the protection of our rights against federal overreach.

The TNM has long advocated for these principles, and this development is a testament to the persistent efforts and the unwavering belief in the vision of a free and independent Texas. The TNM will continue to work tirelessly to educate and mobilize Texans around these critical issues, ensuring that the voices of the people are heard and respected.

As we move forward, it is crucial for supporters of Texas independence to stay informed and engaged. Visit the TNM website to learn more about how you can contribute to this historic movement. Together, we can make the dream of an independent Texas a reality.
