Monckton: It’s Time For ‘Texit’ — Texas Should Secede, Thatcher Advisor Says
Daily Caller ^ | 06/04/2016 | John Griffing

Posted on 06/04/2016 8:10:45 AM PDT by Paine in the Neck

This week, Monckton — former adviser to British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher — pushed for Texas independence in an exclusive interview with The Daily Caller.

In short, Monckton views Texas as a lifeboat. He believes that America is on the verge of being overrun with Islamic invaders which will be accompanied by “imminent” financial destruction.

I agree.

It needs its own banking system with a gold-backed currency.

And absolute financial privacy with no extradition treaties with the US or Europe.

And only a single tax: a 15% retail sales tax.

Think of it as a “safe space.” Safety from all of the federal micro (and macro) aggressions - and they are legion.

Funny you should mention this. I believe our Texas leaders are preparing for what they see is a national financial meltdown.

Texas legislature passed a bill creating a gold depository and bring back Texas gold held in NY. As far as Texas succession...I'm good with it.

Texas only needs to make the first move. The other States will jump to copy whatever success is shown by the Texas example. (I forget ... how many governors’ offices and state legislatures are controlled by Republicans?)

Obummer can make all the noise he wants but there is no way he would militarily move to quash such a rebellion. Hell, there would be questions about his response if China landed troops outside San Diego!

A Texas secession could quickly bring about a lot of good changes in the country.

15% retail sales tax.

Too easy to drive over to Oklahoma (aka North Texas) or some other part of the U.S. for shopping like Canadians do in Buffalo. They actually have tour buses from Toronto for shopping trips to Buffalo.

Texas isnt going to do anything.

It isnt like the government there is made up of fearless cowboys. Look how many times the Feds just rolls over them. Far too many of the big shots just think that a western hat and a Texas drawl is good enough to cover for their weakness.

If they wanted to leave, then they would have by now.

Drudge has a story up about the DHS turning loose illegal Middle Eastern border crossers into the United States. Seems Obama is working at fever pitch to plant more destruction inside our borders.

And, in the Republican controlled Congress, the band plays on.

I don’t know why you felt the need to insult every Texas Freeper, but you just did.

If Texas secedes, how many states will follow? I’m guessing 15-20.

Texas as a “libertarian paradise”?? Bwahahaha! Sort of self-contradictory to the stated intent. If by “libertarian” one means “virtually no centralized government control” then how does one propose to control the ethnic or religious demographic, much less ideologies of the populace?
Does Lord Monckton know the state is already overrun with Muslims and illegal Latinos?

Probably he’s remembering that do-nothing call-up of the Texas National Guard for securing the border during the “border crisis” “news event” awhile back. (Remember the Glen Beck Teddy-Bear border-visit? Around then, IIRC.)

From Revelation 12:12 :

Should Texas reform it’s Republic, I will move to Texas and swear allegiance my Ancestors fought in first war for Texan Independence. And I will fight for it’s third should it come to that.

God bless Texas!

For God, Guns, and Liberty.

Texas is America’s last best hope. IF Hillary is elected, secession talk will become very serious. We will not give up our gun rights. We file against Obama’s damned executive orders constantly. What does your state do to keep the American way of life thriving?

How is that an insult?

Are you all in the state government?

State legislators and bureaucrats aren't rebels nowadays, wherever they live.

Voters really aren't either -- not a majority anyway.

That goes for Texas as much as it does for any other state.

“How is that an insult?”

For those who understand, no explanation is necessary. For those who don’t, no explanation is possible.

I imagine several of the surrounding states would follow her. Alabama would hopefully come along. We Alabamians certainly have a Texas outlook in many ways.

As a native Texan, sometimes I think this wouldn’t be a bad idea, because our government is so totally corrupted- but then there’s Donald, a brilliant AMERICAN businessman/CEO who loves America and GETS THINGS DONE.
It’s quite possible he’s our last hope to save this country.

He might not be able to get ‘the wall’ built, try as he might, but he will put the guards (armed) back on the border to help stop the tsunami of dangerous Mexican/S American/muslim criminal invaders. He WILL enforce our immigration laws.

He WILL stem the colonization of America by muslim ‘refugees’ that Obama continues to import by the thousands and distribute all across America AGAINST OUR WILL- before we become another Germany. COUNT ON IT.

Texas would need tariffs too. As an offset to unfair competition.

I live in Texas and I agree with you. As we say in Texas all the political types who call for secession are all hat and no cattle. They have a chance to vote for sevess at the first of each legislative session but they always vote it down.
