WHEREAS, The Republic of Texas existed as an independent nation for nine years, and when it accepted admission to the Union in 1845, it remained a free and independent state subject only to the United States Constitution; and

WHEREAS, The United States Congress has passed laws requiring Texas to make expenditures that are unfunded by the federal government, which is a violation of the Tenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution; moreover, the federal government has caused the intentional devaluation of its currency through its reckless spending and borrowing, and this threatens the economic stability of Texas; and

WHEREAS, The United States government has allowed the use of its authority, credit, and goodwill for the benefit of private and foreign concerns in violation of its own constitution; in addition, its repeated failure to guard the border between Texas and Mexico has forced the state to spend vast sums in order to protect its citizens; and

WHEREAS, The federal government has further implemented thousands of laws, mandates, and agencies
in violation of the United States Constitution and of the sovereignty of the State of Texas; and

WHEREAS, Section 1, Article I, Texas Constitution, states that “the perpetuity of the Union
depend[s] upon the preservation of the right of local self-government, unimpaired to all the
States”; Section 2, Article I, declares, “All political power is inherent in the people, and all
free governments are founded on their authority, and instituted for their benefit. The faith of the
people of Texas stands pledged to the preservation of a republican form of government, and, subject
to this limitation only, they have at all times the inalienable right to alter, reform or abolish
their government in such manner as they may think expedient”; now,

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the Republican Party of Texas urges the Texas Legislature to pass a
bill in its next session requiring a referendum in the 2023 general election for the people of
Texas to decide on whether or not the State of Texas should reassert its status as an independent
nation.

Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be sent to the
Senatorial/County Convention Resolutions Committee from Precinct # of the
County Republican Party, with the recommendation that it be passed and
sent to the State Convention Platform Committee of the Republican Party of Texas.
