The Texas Nationalist Movement: Foot Soldiers for Freedom

The infantry for independence

By Russell D. Longcore

The Texas Nationalist Movement (TNM) is the pointy-end of the spear in the ongoing quest for secession. Nobody on the planet is doing it better than the TNM. They are setting the standards by which all other secession or independence movements will be judged.

The eminent Prussian military tactician Karl von Clausewitz (1780-1831) had a lot to say about military tactics, and I’m going to weave some of his best quotes into this article. You’ll understand why as you read.

“The first and most important rule to observe…is to use our entire forces with the utmost energy. The second rule is to concentrate our power as much as possible against that section where the chief blows are to be delivered and to incur disadvantages elsewhere, so that our chances of success may increase at the decisive point. The third rule is never to waste time. Unless important advantages are to be gained from hesitation, it is necessary to set to work at once. By this speed a hundred enemy measures are nipped in the bud, and public opinion is won most rapidly. Finally, the fourth rule is to follow up our successes with the utmost energy. Only pursuit of the beaten enemy gives the fruits of victory.”

The TNM is committed to the lawful, peaceful and legislative secession of the State of Texas. It exists to secure and protect the political, cultural and economic independence of the nation of Texas, and to restore and protect a constitutional Republic and the inherent rights of the people of Texas.

The TNM understands that the power to govern is not found in Austin in the Governor’s office or the Legislature, but resides in the people of Texas. Part of the brilliance of the mission of the TNM is its breadth, focused in those three areas:


• The number one goal for the TNM is to have the Texas legislature pass a law that allows a statewide referendum…an up or down vote by Texans on Texas independence and secession.
• They are organizing Texans who are pro-independence.
• They are educating Texans about independence and secession though statewide meetings, rallies, booths at public gatherings, radio programs and blog radio programs, as well as many other methods of mass communication.
• They are identifying, fielding and supporting political candidates at every level of Texas politics who are friends of Texas nationalism.
• They are shining the light of truth on all Texas government officials at all levels to hold them accountable for adherence to the Texas Constitution and the US Constitution.


• The TNM celebrates the preservation of Texas history and its unique culture.
• They work to improve the way of life of Texas communities.


• The TNM promotes the Texas entrepreneurial spirit by connecting Texas businesses with skilled Texas workers.
• They promote a sound economic system for a new Texas.
• They promote free trade between a new Texas and all other nations.

“Pursue one great decisive aim with force and determination.”

By concentrating on grass roots politics, widespread public support, establishing an historical connection between Texas history and today’s Texas, and forcing accountability at the legislative level, The Texas Nationalist Movement is at once broadening their influence and concentrating their power to effect change.

It is my opinion that no state will secede from the Union before the looming national economic meltdown will occur. But the genius of the TNM is that they will have planted the seeds of independence far and wide in Texas, and when the economic storm waters those seeds, Texas independence has its best chance of growing into a reality…and a new nation.

“If the leader is filled with high ambition and if he pursues his aims with audacity and strength of will, he will reach them in spite of all obstacles.”

The TNM has leaders that will join Sam Houston, Juan Seguin, Jim Bowie, Philip Dimmitt, Edward Burleson and Stephen F. Austin as heroes of Texas history. Let me tell you about the two most important movers and shakers, working tirelessly for Texas independence.

Daniel Miller is President of the TNM. Miller owns Radio Free Texas, an Internet radio station dedicated to only Texas musicians and Texas music. (You cannot listen to this station without smiling. I encourage you to stream this station on your computer.)

But Miller has been committed to Texas independence for many years. He is a brilliant writer, a polished public speaker and pragmatic strategist.

Cary Wise is Director of Membership for the TNM.

Cary is also a native son of Texas, an Air Force veteran, a former Michigan State Trooper and a very successful businessman. Cary decided back in 2009 to forsake national political concerns and concentrate on Texas independence. Under his leadership, the membership of the TNM has swelled to over 250,000 members. Cary is also a convincing and powerful public speaker that can bring a crowd to its feet.

Both of these Texas heroes traverse the state week after week, enthusiastically bringing a message of hope and liberty to people starved for freedom.

“If the enemy is to be coerced, you must put him in a situation that is even more unpleasant than the sacrifice you call on him to make. The hardships of the situation must not be merely transient – at least not in appearance. Otherwise, the enemy would not give in, but would wait for things to improve.”

The TNM is presently calling for its members to flood the phone lines to their Austin lawmakers while the 2011 Texas Legislature is in session. Their strategy is to bring widespread political pressure on each legislator, making these elected solons uncomfortable with such pressure, and aware that the electorate will replace them if they do not support Texas independence. When the legislators consider electoral defeat more unpleasant than supporting the independence referendum, they will vote for the referendum.

”It is even better to act quickly and err than to hesitate until the time of action is past.”

Please do not misunderstand. The Texas Nationalist Movement is in the fight for the long haul. However, the Texas legislature only meets every other year. So, even if the TNM might make a tactical error along the way (can’t imagine what that could be), it is far more desirable to act decisively NOW to influence this present legislative session.

In closing, commits its reputation, its column space and its money to the Texas Nationalist Movement. We encourage all readers of this article to support the TNM. No matter where you live in the world, you can contribute to the success of the TNM and its goal of a new Texas nation. Then you could move there yourself.

Folks, a membership only cost $20.00 a year. Click HERE to make a generous contribution. You should be ashamed if you don’t.

As Cary says in his radio show, “Man up…cowboy up…” and help make Texas the first new nation on the North American continent. Join the infantry for independence.

Secession is the Hope For Mankind. Will Texas be first?
