“Nobody here is saying that our health-care system is perfect, but the solution doesn’t lie with the federal government,” said Texas Nationalist Movement president Daniel Miller. “The United States Constitution gives Congress no authority whatsoever to run a health care system – just as it also did not give Congress the authority to run the banking, auto and home-loan industries. This government no longer abides by the very document which is supposed to limit its powers.
“They’re trying to drink themselves sober,” Miller added. “We in the Texas Nationalist Movement believe that Texans are fed up with Washington grabbing more and more power every day. It’s time to go our own way.”
Miller reiterated the call he made first on Aug. 29 for Texas Gov. Rick Perry to call a special session of the Legislature to nullify existing federal legislation which infringes on state sovereignty, or to put the matter of Texas independence before the voters of the Lone Star State.
“Our state’s leaders keep telling us that they believe Texas is best run by Texans,” he said. “They keep saying they’re tired of being dictated to by Washington. It’s time for them to live up to their word – or step aside, and let the people of Texas speak for themselves.”
Miller invited Texans and Texas expatriates to log on to the TNM website at www.texasnationalist.com to learn what they can do to continue to exert pressure on state officials to stand up for the people of Texas.
“Everybody’s talking about all the problems of the federal government, but we’re the only organization which has a solution,” he said. “More and more people are realizing that no matter which party is in power, you’re not going to change Washington. Washington is always going to try to grab more power, to take more and more of your money, your rights and your very incentive.
“It’s time Texans stood up and said, ‘Enough! We’ve had enough of the Nanny State and Big Brother. It’s time for us to be free!”
