I am a proud Texan and Tyler County resident. I have been involved with the TNM for many years ensuring resolutions passed out of our county convention and that new members were brought into the fold. I have the honor and privilege of serving as the Tyler County GOP Chair.
I have always thought these were some great quotes.
“Texas will again lift its head and stand among the nations. It ought to do so, for no country upon the globe can compare with it in natural advantages.” -Sam Houston
“I would rather cut off my right arm, than live under tyranny.” -Attributed to Capt. Phillip Dimmitt
And these are some great platform planks:
33. State Sovereignty: 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 should 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.
225. Texas Independence: We urge the Texas Legislature to pass a bill in its next session requiring a referendum in the 2023 general election for the people of Texas to determine whether or not the State of Texas should reassert its status as an independent nation.
