Just so y’all know, on occasion I do review a sampling of comments to the missives posted. I could spend forever trying to respond to a select few. However, your responses do provide me real insight, perspective, and focus regarding your concerns.
Let me just share with y’all once again my statement and video from July 3rd offering my future plans and effort. Many have said that I need to run for national elected office, got it. I would hope that after reading today’s post, you will understand why I believe that the Chairman of the Republican Party of Texas is a crucial position to hold.
We must reverse the GOP electoral losses we have encountered here in Texas. It was not too long ago that there were huge supermajorities in the Texas House and Senate for the GOP. No, I do not see the retirements of the four members from Texas of the US House of Representatives as something horrible . . . it is an opportunity. It is an opportunity to get new, principled, resolute, and vigorous constitutional conservatives into office.In order to achieve victory, we must challenge the progressive socialist left in those places where they believe they are strong.

We do not win on defense, so we need to go big, go strong, and go on the offense. We do not win by compromising, appeasing, and acquiescing to socialists. If we are to be successful, we must meet their uninformed, and dangerous, #resist-focused enthusiasm with our very own. Their energy is rooted in a philosophy of governance and an ideological agenda that is inconsistent with the fundamental principles and values of our Constitutional Republic. That means in order to achieve victory, we must challenge the progressive socialist left in those places where they believe they are strong.
The policies and ideals of the progressive socialist left have nothing — and I mean nothing — in common with the values of hard-working Americans. The history of the Democrat (socialist) Party has never advanced hope or promise for the black community. See our inner cities for evidence of that! Now, the left, who believes their policy of economic enslavement has guaranteed them the black electoral patronage, has set its sights squarely on decimating the proud Hispanic community. They need more dependency for electoral expediency.
So, not just here in Texas, but everywhere, let’s take our message into those inner cities starving for leadership . . . caring, not patronizing. Let’s challenge our young people and stop allowing them to be brainwashed by the progressive socialist left, or intimidated into submission and silence. When the left yells and screams, push them harder on the basis of intellectual engagement. When they call you a racist, sexist, homophobe, xenophobe, Islamophobe, steel your nerves and do not relent.When the left yells and screams, push them harder on the basis of intellectual engagement.

Stop defending, allowing them to dictate the narrative. Ask them the tough questions. Ask them why Bernie Sanders had to cut back on his campaign staff hours when he implemented a $15/hour minimum wage?
We can, and I know we will win in 2020. It will not be easy, then again, anything worth having, such as our country, is not easy, but well worth the fight. We must fight for what we believe in, and stop cowering, believing that will win over radical Marxists.
I have been reading that Antifa is arming up, quite oxymoronic, but then again, leftists cannot win with their ideals . . . only by coercion, intimidation, threats, and ultimately, violence. Constitutional conservatives win because we have proven, successful ideas and beliefs. Why else would folks risk all to come to America, and not Venezuela? I have never seen boats of people fleeing South Florida for Cuba. Have y’all?
What can y’all do? Get folks engaged, involved, registered to vote . . . and excited about fighting for Texas, and our country!
My goal and focus will be heading up a movement here in the Lone Star State which will inspire others in Virginia, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado . . . anywhere the left has come in and flipped freedom and liberty upon its head.
Steadfast and Loyal,
