Throughout the general election, people on both sides of the political aisle have emphasized that America’s only two realistic choices were Republican nominee Donald Trump and Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton.
“Being that I’m a Republican county chair, I do think that Trump will probably be in my lifetime the last hope to make America great again,” explained Regina Cowan.
“But as a Texas nationalist I also know that Trump or Hillary, either one is not our only option. We have every right to become independent,” she added.
There has been a “Texit” movement for just about as long as there has been a Texas. The movement has never really gained much traction, but when faced with the choice this year, more and more Texans have started to think about secession.
“We can’t save Washington,” explained secession supporter Ryan Thorson. “But maybe we can save Texas.”
It is highly unlikely that Texas would actually be able to secede from the United States, but for some folks in Texas it gives them something to talk about other than the decrepit state of politics in Washington right now.
Such a move would have far-reaching consequences for the United States as a country — few of them good.
Texas’ secessionist movement has been the butt of many political jokes over the years, but if Clinton is actually elected the movement could become a serious rallying cry for states’ rights.
In any case, the “Texit” movement is something that should be watched carefully over the next few years.
