Brexit inspires Texas, California secession movements

WT: Within hours of the Brexit vote, Texas independence activist Daniel Miller was flooded with messages from people in other states with one question: How can we do this?

The United Kingdom’s vote Thursday in favor of severing ties with the European Union has invigorated secession movements across the pond from California to New England by showing “there is a choice for people out there,” said Mr. Miller, who heads the Texas Nationalist Movement.

“Even since the Brexit vote, what we’ve seen is we’ve been contacted by people in other states that are looking to us for advice about how they can begin the process of asserting the independence of their states,” he said. “We’re looking across the Atlantic and witnessing what to many is this surprising Euroskeptic movement, although it’s not really surprising if you pay attention over there. What’s the most surprising is now the rearing of its head of the Ameroskeptic movement, or the federal skeptic movement.”  more

  1. I would be willing to pay more state taxes locally and then have the states tell the feds to shove it and just stop paying the federal jizya. They don’t like it, too bad. The feds are criminals, tyrants and traitors, so lets cut off their funding. They have proven they don’t know how to handle our money, it just goes into the pockets of corrupt politicians and moslem terrorist organizations.

  2. Maybe this growing sentiment will enable the Article 5 discussion to gain traction. The “elite” should be worried…and it’s way overdue.

  3. BINGO Lazlo.

    CA leaving would solve a ton of problems. Or if they split into several smaller states, that’d work too.

  4. If my old mind is working I think I remember some years ago that here in Calif. they wanted to create two states- a northern and southern Calif. ? well here in SO. Calif. its already separate–its called northern mexico
    🙁 more of them than us. have a good day 🙂

  5. Well if Cali puts it on the ballot I’ll campaign for it, vote for it, and then immediately move to Idaho.

  6. It doesn’t take succession. The first step to correcting the Feds overreach this is within our grasps. Convention of States: Conservatives are still the majority in almost every state. They simply have given up. They can be revitalized re-committed. We can create for ourselves a real voice.

    The Congress, whenever two thirds of both houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose amendments to this Constitution, or, on the application of the legislatures of two thirds of the several states, shall call a convention for proposing amendments, which, in either case, shall be valid to all intents and purposes, as part of this Constitution, when ratified by the legislatures of three fourths of the several states, or by conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other mode of ratification may be proposed by the Congress; provided that no amendment which may be made prior to the year one thousand eight hundred and eight shall in any manner affect the first and fourth clauses in the ninth section of the first article; and that no state, without its consent, shall be deprived of its equal suffrage in the Senate.

    – Article V, U.S. Constitution

    We can FIX it!

  7. I thought this was supposed to be a fatal step economically for Britain – if so, why is there going to be a domino effect in the EU and why will TX & CA follow so readily?

    Sound like the usual MSM BS to me

  8. California would be a nice place is the 15+ million Mexicans were deported back to Mexico, the 5 million New Yorkers were deported back to New York, and the homosexuals were put back into mental institutions.

    None of these groups seems to be very happy here, anyway – as they are relentlessly trying to turn California, respectively, into either Mexico or New York or New Sodom.
