As a new resident of Galveston, let me first thank all my new neighbors for the warm welcome I've received here. This island is truly special.
My second reason for writing is to let your readers know that state Rep. Kyle Biedermann just introduced HB 1359 in the Texas Legislature. I know we're all sick of the national news, but this is something special. It's the bill that will put the TEXIT question before Texans as early as November.
It's not a declaration of independence — it's simply asking if Texans should be able to decide their own destiny. I think our state Rep. Mayes Middleton may be on the fence on this bill. A gentle nudge from his constituents in Galveston might help.
And, the Texas Nationalist Movement website has tons of good information about this intriguing question.
