Did the Civil War “settle” the issue of secession? Most Americans think so.

But not all. In fact, some continue to believe that secession remains an option for states who are dissatisfied with the level of interference in state affairs by the federal government, which seems to grow larger and more powerful by the year.

One such group is located in, unsurprisingly, Texas, a state whose citizens have been historically independent-minded and lovers of liberty. In fact, the group is currently traveling the state to whip up support for the notion of secession.

As reported by the Houston Chronicle, the Texas Nationalist Movement, as the group is called, has launched its Take Texas Back Tour, with speaking engagements booked in 20 cities throughout the state. The organization says it wants to collect enough signatures to get a Texas secession amendment on the 2016 ballot. And while that really isn’t possible since only the state Legislature can put referendums up for vote, the group nevertheless hopes to generate interest in the idea.

Thus far, as of this writing, the venues are small – 62 at a Fort Worth gathering; 88 at a Tyler event – but part of what could be keeping Texans away is fear of reprisal by the federal government. After all, state and federal officials raided an event sponsored by the Republic of Texas, a pro-secession group, in March.

Is the issue really ‘settled?’
