“There are a lot of people asking, if Brexit why not Texit?” Daniel Miller Texas Nationalist Movemen

Daniel Miller, 42, the president of the Texas Nationalist Movement, told The Guardian Sunday that he’s tracking every step of the so-called “Brexit” movement and is hoping Texas can conjure a similar “Leave” vote to secede.
“There are a lot of people asking, if Brexit why not Texit?” he told the paper. “I do talk with some folks over there on a pretty regular basis that are involved in Ukip and the Conservative party.”
Miller said Britain’s situation is nearly identical to Texas. He told The Guardian to replace the “EU” with the “US” and “Brussels” with “Washington.” He told a local Tea Party group that the relationship between Britain and the EU was fractured over irreconcilable differences...
The Republic of Texas, another Texas nationalist group, claims that Texas never ceded its sovereignty when it joined the U.S. On the group’s website, it claims a “great deception can be undone – stay tuned.”...
There have been two Texas petitions on the possibility of secession in the last few years and both of them were rejected.
When President Barack Obama was re-elected in 2012, a Texit petition garnered more than 125,000 votes but was shot down by the White House.

Техасские националисты видят в Brexit пример для подражания. Замените Брюссель на Вашингтон и Англию на Техас и вы получите похожую ситуацию. После избрания Обамы петиция о независимости Техаса набрала 125 тысяч голосав, но правительство отказалось эту петицию рассматривать.
