There are wing nuts and then there are lone star wing nuts:

The separatist Republic of Texas group, which largely dissolved after an abortive uprising in the Davis Mountains left several of its leaders dead or in prison in 1997, has reformed, and is again pushing its message that Texas should be a free and independent nation, 1200 WOAI news reported today.

From a newly established ‘capitol’ in the east Texas town of Overton, Daniel Miller, President of the Republic of Texas Interim Government, says a desire to be free, combined with ballooning concerns over rising taxes and property rights, will convince more Texans to support a ‘referendum’ on whether Texas should become an independent nation.

“We’re seeking a referendum to allow the people of Texas to vote on independence,” Miller said. “We’re looking forward to the benefits of Texas independence, where Texas stands as a nation among other nations.”

Some people clearly have the time on their hands to read up on this.
