Op-Ed How to support TEXIT


Veteran Member
Dear Fellow Patriots,
Representative Kyle Biedermann has filed bill HB1359 referred to as the “Texas Independence Referendum Act (TIRA)”. Many of you have contacted our office asking what you can do to help promote this referendum at the grassroots level. Here’s an action you can do immediately.
Write a “Letter to the Editor” of your local newspaper(s) that will help to accurately inform your fellow citizens on what the referendum truly accomplishes. Send this same letter to your local state representatives, senators, Governor Greg Abbott, and anyone else you’d like, to let them know of your support.
You can find contact information for your local newspaper(s) here, and your representatives here. If you don’t know who your representatives are, you can find them here.
It is important that you express your support in your own words. Here some ideas:
  1. THIS IS NOT A VOTE TO LEAVE THE UNION OR “SECEDE”. If Texans vote in favor, the bill forms a committee to investigate how TEXIT could be accomplished.
  2. THIS IS NOT ABOUT THE 2020 ELECTION. The idea and spirit of Texas Independence has been around for many years, and now is the time to move forward with a true plan.
  3. This vote is not “un-American”, we love America, it’s the unconstitutional behavior of the federal government overstepping its authority that is “un-American”. This vote affirms that Texans wish to preserve and strengthen American values and be prepared in the case where the federal government further erodes our cherished freedoms.
  4. At the end of WWII, there were less than 60 sovereign nations. By the end of the 20th century, there were over 190. In 50 years, over 130+ countries decided to assert their right of political independence.
If you’ve not done so, please sign the TEXIT Petition at kylebiedermann.com/texit-petition. Read the Frequently Asked Questions about Texit here.
You may relay a copy of your Letter to the Editor via email to our office at kyle.biedermann@house.texas.gov.

Thank you for your support and efforts now and in the future.
God Bless Texas!
