History was made when the people of the UK voted today to leave the European Union. The “Leave” movement was given the nickname, “BREXIT.” The newly formed word BREXIT is the combination of “Britain” and “Exit.”
Well, there is a “Leave” movement taking shape here in the U.S., and it’s calling for an independent Texas. The movement to separate Texas from the United States is gaining momentum on Facebook and Twitter, with thousands calling for a “Texit.”
The largest group pushing for secession is the Texas Nationalist Movement, which has been promoting “Texit” over the past several weeks.
The group has taken inspiration from the “Leave” movement in Britain, noting that the two movements share many of the same principles. Daniel Miller, president of the TNM, told Australian website news.com.au, “The vast majority of the laws, rules and regulations that affect the people of Texas are created by the political class or unelected bureaucrats in Washington” — a sentiment which echoes the arguments made by the British Leave campaign.
