The Texas Nationalist Movement has been gaining weight recently and I guess we've got really good chance to get independent status in foreseeable future. But we've got to do hell of political job first like those smart guys in Catalonia, Spain. I even think we can make it much quicker than Catalonia 'course Texas used to be an independent country before joining the USA . So we've got the right to define our future via wide-scaled referendum on independence! Our flag is already floating next to the federal one (our special pride!), but I guess we must have more representatives in the Senate to support more successfully our drive to independence. Am I right?
