TEXIT: Why and How TEXAS Will Leave the Union is a book by Daniel Miller, leader of the Texas Nationalist Movement, an organization which seeks to have Texas peacefully secede from the United States via a statewide referendum (popularly known as Texit). It was originally published in 2018 by Defiance Press and Publishing LLC.

The central theme of the book is (as the title suggests) why Texas should, and how it can, reclaim its former independence as a sovereign nation. Miller addresses several fears which arise, how the plan would work legislatively, and how certain bi-lateral issues would be resolved (e.g. currency, trade, Social Security payments).
