Recently, State Rep. Kyle Biedermann posted that he intends to propose a referendum that would allow Texas voters to decide if we should declare our independence from the United States.

State Representative Biedermann justifies his action by stating, “The federal government is out of control and does not represent the values of Texans.” In the case of any dysfunctional relationship, there comes a time when you need to either seek counseling or get a divorce if the differences are irreconcilable. Declaring our independence would be foregoing counseling and going straight to a divorce.

Discussion of ‘declaring independence’ aside, why doesn’t the Legislature put forth a Constitutional Amendments package? Why don’t they, with the governor, recall our Representatives and Senators to sit before them and answer questions regarding the issues?

It’s time Governor Abbott to lead us to legislative rebellion against the dysfunction in Washington!
