The Texas Nationalist Movement, a group of Lone Star State residents who wish to break away from the United States, launched a campaign over the weekend to gather signatures in supports of a referendum on the statewide primary ballot in March 2016.

The group took to the streets in 31 different cities across the state on Saturday, to gather the 75,000 signatures they believe they need to force a vote.

Texas alone has a $1.4 trillion annual economy, which would certainly make survival as an independent nation plausible.
Legal experts, however, believe that the group has few realistic options short of secession, which they believe poses a pretty major legal problem.

“That problem is the Civil War,” T. Gerald Treece, a professor at South Texas College of Law in Houston and an expert on Constitutional Law, told Yahoo! News. “When Texas and the other Southern states were re-admitted, each of them made a solemn promise that they would never leave the Union again.”
