(Editor’s Note: I have written lots of articles about the Texas Nationalist Movement. The most recent is HERE. The TNM is the premier secessionist organization on the North American continent. No other organization even comes close to their professionalism, focus, energy and RESULTS. In my opinion, only Texas has a chance to gain independence and nationhood in the foreseeable future.
The BIG rally is March 5th in Austin. If you can be there, be there on March 5th. That’s this coming Saturday, friends.)
March 5, 2011 is the 175th anniversary of William Barret Travis drawing the line in the sand at the Alamo. On this day, Texans will draw another line in the sand for the Texas Legislature.
Article 1 Section 1 of the Texas Constitution reads:
“Texas is a free and independent State, subject only to the Constitution of the United States, and the maintenance of our free institutions and the perpetuity of the Union depend upon the pres…ervation of the right of local self-government, unimpaired to all the States.”
Article 1 Section 2 of the Texas Constitution reads:
“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.”
The Texas Legislature has allowed other states to take the lead on issues of state sovereignty and independence. It is time that we gather together and send them a message that a line in the sand has been drawn.
Whether you are a Tea Partier, Tenther or anyone else who believes in these key principles from the Texas Bill of Rights, you need to be there to send that message with us.
The cutoff for filing new bills is March 11th. This could be our last chance to move the Legislature to action in this session. Let’s show them that the freedom and independence of Texas is more important than slot machines and iffy committee assignments.
To quote Col. William Barret Travis: “I shall have to fight the enemy on his own terms, yet I am ready to do it, and if my countrymen do not rally to my relief, I am determined to perish in the defense of this place, and my bones shall reproach my country for her neglect.”
Give his sacrifice meaning. Join us at the Capitol on March 5th.

Here is the final schedule and details for the Line In The Sand Rally in Austin on the 5th of March. You will notice that the parade attendance for early Saturday morning has been cancelled as many of our members and participants will be traveling. The Texas Nationalist Movement has decided to focus all our efforts on the rally and activities after the rally.
Our goal is to get the attention of the Governor and the legislators by our numbers in attendance so that they will file the bill on a referendum vote by the people of Texas on Texas Independence. To accomplish that we must get the actual bill into the hands of as many legislators as possible on that day.
Setup for speakers and music —— 12:00 NOON
Start of official rally —— 1:00PM SOUTH STEPS OF THE CAPITOL
End of rally —– 4:00PM
Toward the end of the rally the TNM will be passing out copies of the bill for the referendum vote. We are asking everyone to take one and bring it personally into the Capitol en masse and make sure that every Representative, Senator, and the Governor get a copy. If we go in as a group, they cannot ignore us.
We are asking everyone to carry your favorite Texas flag. Carry your favorite sign about Texas Independence. Wear your “blue” TNM shirt. Be loud, be proud, be demanding, and know that we are the only option left to save a true Republic.
In conclusion, we are asking everyone to get on Facebook, Twitter, e-mail, personal mail, phone, fax and face-to-face with family and friends. As you watch what is going on in the world and in the United States, you can see that it is imperative for us to gather in large numbers on the 5th. We cannot fail ourselves or Texas. We will make a difference! BE THERE!
