We are the Texas Nationalist Movement.

We work for the political, cultural, and economic independence of Texas. We’re working for you. Find out more about our mission, our principles, and our team.

Our Mission

The Texas Nationalist Movement’s mission is to secure and protect the political, cultural and economic independence of the nation of Texas and to restore and protect a constitutional Republic and the inherent rights of the people of Texas.
  • Identifying, communicating with and organizing Texans who support independence

    Since our inception, the TNM has connected with over 350,000 supporters of Texas independence. Everyday we reach out and connect with more Texans who want independence.

  • Increasing the number of Texans who support independence by actively educating on the benefits of Texas independence

    Through our ceaseless campaign of outreach and education as well as our engagement of the issue of Texas independence in the media, we have seen support increase to at or near a majority of Texans.

  • Affecting an internationally recognized referendum on Texas independence for the people of Texas

    Since 2009, the TNM has engaged the Texas Legislature advocating for a referendum on Texas independence. Through our ‘Let Texas Decide‘ campaign we have drafted the first of its kind legislation (Texas Independence Referendum Act) to put the question on the ballot.

  • Supporting candidates at every level that support Texas independence and the principles of Texas nationalism

    Every election cycle since 2011, the TNM has fielded and supported candidates for state-level office including candidates for State Representative, State Senator, Comptroller, State Board of Education, and others.

  • Preserving, celebrating, and defending Texas history and culture

    The TNM has been on the forefront of the defense and commemoration of the unique history and culture of Texas through its successful advocacy efforts including legislation that places Texas Independence Day and San Jacinto Day on equal footing with Federal holidays.

  • Improving and supporting the way of life of Texas communities

    The TNM works to improve the way of life for Texans. Whether its lending a helping hand when disaster strikes or working with citizens to tackle government corruption in their communities, we are there to help.

  • Promoting the purchase of Texas goods and the use of Texas services by Texans

    Through our GetTexan initiative, the TNM supports the backbone of the Texas economy, the entrepreneur, through connecting Texas Nationalists with Texas businesses.

  • Supporting a sound economic system and policies

    The TNM aggressively advocates for policies that restrict government spending and move Texas toward a Texas-centered economic system.  We strongly resist all efforts at further economic integration with the United States.

Our Principles

The Texas Nationalist Movement is an organization formed on a clear set of principles that guide our actions as we work to create a free and independent Texas.
  • Texas is a nation with a distinct culture, economy and government.

    We believe that the people of Texas, by every definition, constitute a separate and distinct people – a nation. In the early days of the Texas Republic, people who were part of this nation were called Texians. We continue that tradition today be referring to ourselves as Texians.

  • Texas should always be politically, culturally, and economically independent.

    We believe that, as a nation, the people of Texas of deserve the basic and fundamental right of self-government in all affairs of our nation. This means rejecting all external entanglements that prevent us from independently making decisions that affect our governance, culture, and economy.

  • The basic political building block of Texas is the individual.

    Texas was founded on a spirit of rugged individualism. That spirit carries through into our political life. We believe that at the heart of every political decision is the individual. Article 1 Section 2 of the Texas Constitution declares that all political power is inherent in the people, and “the people” consists of individual people.

  • The basic economic building block of Texas is the entrepreneur.

    We believe that the economic engine of Texas is the individual entrepreneur. The Texas entrepreneur, unencumbered by market restrictions is the driving force behind the strength of the Texas economy. It is this philosophy that has taken Texas to one of the largest economies in the world and, fully realized, can take us even higher.

  • The basic cultural building block of Texas is the family.

    We believe that the primary conduit for the continuation of our culture and traditions is the family. Strong families strengthen the culture of our nation and, thereby, our nation itself.

  • Texians are defenders of natural rights.

    We believe that the nation of Texas was borne out of the struggle to preserve the inherent rights of the people. It is the duty of every Texian to continually struggle for the preservation of these rights.

  • Texas adheres to the values of fortitude, loyalty, righteousness, prudence, and broadmindedness.

    Originally suggested as the meaning of each of the points of the star on the Texas flag by Adina de Zavala, we believe that these are the five traits fundamental to the character of Texians.

  • Texas Nationalism is the primary secular cause of all Texians and is distinct and superior to all other secular causes.

    We believe that Texas Nationalism extends into a realm that transcends the current understanding of politics and also reaches into our culture and our economy. As a worldview, it represents a system of thought that connects politics, culture, and economics and can solve issues within all three.

  • The interests of Texas supersede the interests of all other nations and states.

    We believe that the people of Texas are only served when the interests of our nation are placed above and before the interests of other nations, countries, and political and economic unions. This is best embodied in the phrase, “Texas first!”

  • The power to determine Texas destiny is solely in the hands of the Texan people.

    We believe that the only people that have the right to determine the destiny of Texas are the people of Texas and the people of Texas alone.

  • Texas' unique history serves as the foundation for our current and future greatness.

    We believe that the history of our people is fundamental to our identity and serves to inform and inspire us. We learn lessons from our history, to glory and revel in it when it is good and to use it as a cautionary tale to avoid repeating past mistakes.

  • There is no challenge that cannot be overcome by the individual initiative and collective will of Texians.

    We believe that there are no problems that face Texas, either collectively or individually, that cannot be solved by Texians. Texas has been known throughout its history for overcoming long odds to achieve great things. We never quit and we work until we win.
