Texas Nationalists Eye U.K.'s Impeding Brexit Vote

Some Texas residents are keeping a close eye on Britain’s upcoming vote on whether to leave the European Union later this month and are hoping they could use the referendum as inspiration to break away from the U.S.

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.

He lawmakers that want Britain to leave the European Union are nearly identical to why Texas nationalists want to secede from the U.S. Miller claims Texas could reach a higher potential if it wasn’t “shackled” to the federal government.
