Quick Facts About The TNM

  • The TNM was founded in November of 2005 when over a dozen separate organizations and groups united into a single organization.

  • The demographics of the TNM more closely reflect the population of Texas than either major political party. (TNM Demographics | PDF)

Texas Relationship With The Union

  • Texans are currently subjected to over 180,000 pages of Federal laws, administered by 440 separate agencies and nearly 2 million unelected Federal bureaucrats.
  • Texans pay between $340-$400 billion in state and Federal taxes annually.
  • Texans pay the Federal Government an average of $265 billion annually, yet they only spend an average of $162 billion in Texas.
  • Texans overpay an average of $100-$120 billion annually into the Federal bureaucracy.
  • At the current level that Texans are paying to both the Federal Government and the State Government, an independent Texas could preserve and maintain every program, every job, current military enlistment, every department, every facility, every military base, every function, and every contract with no reductions.Texans would enjoy a massive surplus of revenue could be used to fund additional national functions or to give significant tax relief to Texans.

Is Texas Independence Legal?

  • There is nothing in the United States Constitution, the Texas Constitution or Federal law that prevents a State from exiting the union.
  • With the United States Constitution silent on the issue, the power is reserved to the State of Texas.
  • Article 1 Section 2 of the Texas Constitution reserves the power to alter, reform or abolish our form of government to the people of Texas.
  • Critics often cite the Supreme Court case of Texas v White to declare any State leaving the union as illegal. In doing so, they ignore the deficiencies in the ruling as well as over 150 years of additional court precedent, treaty law, and foreign policy that upholds the right of self-determination and overturns Texas v White.
