Texas Republicans are pushing for a referendum to decide whether the state should secede from the U.S.

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.".

The myth that Texas can secede from the U.S. continues because of the state's history of independence, according to The Texas Tribune.

Texas declared independence from Mexico in 1836 and spent nine years as its own nation before becoming a U.S. state.

Last year, state Representative Kyle Biedermann introduced a bill that called for a "Texit" referendum, which was endorsed by Texas GOP chairman Allen West.
