Breach of contract – grounds for Texit

The federal government is in breach of contract. That alone is grounds for Texas to declare Texit – and its independence.

Flag of Texas - or Texit

The Texas Nationalist Movement is up against it. Their key bill, HB 1359, sits in the State Affairs Committee without even a hearing. Chairman Chris Paddie is chubbing this bill, and no mistake. So Dan Miller, head of the TNM, came up with a brilliant ploy. He is asking his followers to record three-minute “virtual testimonies” to add to his website. Next week he will stream all the testimonies on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and wherever else he can get an account. Herewith the “virtual testimony” of your editor, on a simple premise: the federal government is in breach of contract.

What is the Constitution of the United States?

It’s a contract. It lays an obligation on the States to support the federal government with:

  • Taxes,
  • Selling parcels of land for building civil and military installations, and above all:
  • Mutual cooperation for mutual benefit and defense.

In return the federal government promises certain things to the States:

  • A republican form of government,
  • Protection against invasion, and
  • Quelling of domestic violence if the States ask for it.

And also, regulation of interstate commerce for equal and mutual benefit, and a uniform law of immigration.

Today the federal government is in breach of contract

Within hours of assuming office, the incumbent President has:

  • Canceled the Keystone XL Pipeline, thus specifically denying Texas a source of revenue of which his predecessor had given Texas a reasonable expectation.
  • Told contractors working on the border wall to down tools and go home, leaving gaping holes in the wall for invaders to rush in.

That’s right: invaders. Far from protection against invasion, this President is facilitating it, while shutting down interstate commerce on an utterly specious pretext.

He is also giving the exact opposite of a republican form of government. A republic runs on the rule of law. This federal government is in the hands of an oligarchy, one that incites domestic violence to achieve its ends. It is also violating the rights of citizens and lawful residents, while showing favor to unlawful residents and unlawful actors. Furthermore, it now proposes to force Texas and all other States to conduct elections in an easy-to-cheat way. The party now in power wants to win all elections for all time, and enact away everyone’s rights.

Since they have no respect for the way human bodies come into being, they can’t pretend that they respect the right of “body-control” in any context. Particularly when their idea of that respect amounts to systematic murder. And I’m not talking only about abortion. I’m talking about violating a person’s right to refuse medical treatment, and the offering of a treatment that will diminish the population by attrition – or acute lethality.

It all adds up to breach of contract

Nice guys finish last – so it’s time to go.

I applaud the efforts of your Attorney General, Ken Paxton, to seek redress for these grievances. But I predict the federal government will spit on them. And I can tell you, from my own direct knowledge, that too many of my “fellow Americans” won’t even care what’s happening in Texas. Not even when what happens in Texas, doesn’t stay in Texas. Actress Marina Sirtis’ snide remarks about the suffering of Texans during the Texas Deep Freeze is the booby prize example.

So, I urge you: pass HB 1359. Put Texas independence to a vote. And I call on Texans to vote Yes. Stand up to let them count you. And a lot of people, including me, will stand up with you.
