The seven day standoff between police and an armed Texan independence group headed by Richard McLaren ended after the group, The Republic of Texas, surrendered near the town of Fort Davis in west Texas. Other Republic of Texas members escaped into the mountains. Amy is joined by Debbie Nathan to talk about The Republic of Texas. The Republic of Texas is a right wing anti-government movement that believes that Texas is not legally a part of the United States, and that Texas citizens should take it back. Debbi Nathan believes that the members of the Republic of Texas are confused about their own argument.
