  9. Be it enacted by the Legislature of the State of Texas:
  10. NEW SECTION. Section 1. Short title. [Sections 1 through
  11. 5] may be cited as the
  12. "Texas Sovereignty Protection Act".
  14. NEW SECTION. Section 2. Purpose. The purpose of [sections
  15. 1 through 5] is to:
  16. (1) maintain and preserve the state of Texas as a free
  17. and independent State, as provided in the Declaration of
  18. Independence and the Texas Constitution as preserved in the
  19. ninth and tenth Articles of the Bill of Rights, which
Page Two
  1. restrict the Constitution of the United States to certain
  2. powers, and leave the remainder to the States, or to
  3. the People, respectively;

  4. (2) reject any claim that the United Nations Charter, the
  5. United Nations General Assembly, nor any international
  6. treaties signed under the auspices of the United Nations
  7. have any lawful or constitutional authority in or over this
  8. State under either the Charter of the United Nations or the
  9. Constitution of the United States; and
  10. (3) to recognize the power of symbols and flags and their
  11. proper legal function when flown over official state or
  12. public property, which is to proclaim dominion over
  13. territory and to demonstrate allegiance to a given
  14. authority.

  3. NEW SECTION. Section 3. Findings. (1) Every elected
  4. official of this State and all of its political subdivisions
  5. has taken an oath of exclusive allegiance to
  6. support the Constitutions of Texas and of the United
  7. States, and no other.  No elected official has taken an
  8. oath to support the United Nations, and cannot take such an
  9. oath by law.
  10. (2) The United Nations Charter is not, by definition nor in
  11. practice, a treaty made under the authority of the United
  12. States as provided for in Article II, section 2 of the
  13. United States Constitution, but rather is a constitution
  14. for world government.
  15. (3) Although the preamble of the United Nations charter
  16. states that it was made in the name of the peoples of the
  17. United Nations, the charter was not initiated by the people
  18. of any country, in particular not of the United States, and
  19. has never been ratified by the People of the several
  20. States, nor of the United States as a whole.
  21. (4) Because the United Nations Charter has never been voted
  22. on by the People of the United States, nor ratified by the
  23. People of the several States, any claim of governing
Page Four
  1. authority of the United Nations charter over any State of
  2. the United States is unconstitutional, hence null and void.
  3. (5) The display of any government flag over any government
  4. property indicates dominion and authority over the
  5. territory and allegiance on the behalf of the people of
  6. that territory to the authority.
  7. (6) Treaties do not, and cannot supersede the Constitution. 
  8. According to Article VI of the US Constitution, only
  9. treaties “…which shall be made, under the Authority of the
  10. United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land.  No
  11. treaty which violates the US Constitution can be valid, and
  12. is null and void in this State, and in all States.
