TNM to Perry: 'Take up this banner now!'
By Dave Mundy

AUSTIN�Texas Nationalist Movement President Daniel Miller on Saturday challenged Gov. Rick Perry to prove that his rhetoric is �more than just pillow talk� by picking up the banner of state sovereignty during the Sovereignty or Secession rally at the State Capitol.

Commentary: Educate, Don't Intimidate

A crowd of Texas Nationalist Movement and other groups estimated by organizers to be in the vicinity of 1,500-2,000 people gathered on the south side of the Capitol Saturday to demand that Perry and state legislators either stand up for state sovereignty by nullifying federal legislation and regulation which intrudes on states� rights, or start the process of secession.

Miller called on his group�s members to embark on a �national day of action� on Sept. 2, flooding Perry�s office with phone calls demanding he call a Special Session of the Legislature to take up the sovereignty issue, as has been done in Tennessee, Montana and other states.

Perry generated a mass of media attention with a public statement that Texas has a right to secede following a Tea Party at the Capitol back on April 15. Many of his political opponents claim the Governor�s statement was merely political posturing

�I challenge (Perry) to show us that that was not just pillow talk,� Miller told Saturday�s rally. �I want you to show us that you�re listening now.�

Welcome to the national newspaper of Texas, the voice of the Texas Nationalist Movement.

The federal government of the United States has run amok, and is going bankrupt both fiscally and morally. We are Texans who believe that Texas would be better off on its own. We've tried Washington's solutions, and they don't work.

Texas won its independence from Mexico in 1836 on its own, and ruled itself for nearly a decade. The United States has broken its contract with Texas, and Texas wants a divorce.
