Texas, it starts with you!
here. The choices are becoming clearer, and the battle lines are being
drawn. The GOP Beltway crowd has convinced itself that the way to
maintain or retake the majority is through compromise and capitulation
on important issues like amnesty, Obamacare, and the ever-increasing
federal debt. They think that by making deals with a deeply unpopular
and divisive incumbent president on issues that Americans oppose,
they’ll somehow endear themselves to voters.
Enough is enough.
The permanent political class in D.C. won’t listen. So, let’s start
putting our efforts behind good new candidates who will go to Washington
not to line their own pockets, but to help restore our country. It’s
time to put inspiration, ingenuity, and integrity over incumbency in the
Let’s start in Texas. The lines couldn’t be clearer.
Katrina Pierson is an emerging leader and important voice for the future
of the grassroots conservative movement. Her life’s story is full of
hardships she has fought to overcome, which taught her firsthand the
importance of self-reliance, hard work, and the blessings of liberty.
A feisty fighter for freedom, Katrina is taking on a powerful incumbent
who has so lost touch with the people of his district that he’s not
even bothering to spend much time in Texas anymore. It’s not only his
district he’s lost touch with, but also the issues important to the
voters there. He used his powerful position to oppose the movement to
defund Obamacare, has voted to raise the debt ceiling, and has been an
advocate for the NSA intrusion into our freedoms. When asked about
Katrina’s primary challenge, he said, “these things happen.” Yes, they
do. We all know what happens when we come together to support a good
candidate like Katrina – the permanent political class loses and We the
People win! We win by electing a fighter we can depend on like Katrina
Pierson. Ted Cruz calls Katrina “an utterly fearless principled
conservative.” He should know. Katrina was among the conservative
grassroots warriors in Texas who worked tirelessly to elect Senator
Early voting started yesterday, Texas. Get out now and
vote for Katrina. Send a message to the GOP elites on behalf of Katrina,
just like you did for Ted Cruz in 2012.
And while you are out
there voting for Katrina, check the box for another good conservative –
Greg Abbott for Governor of Texas. Like Katrina, Greg has overcome many
personal obstacles and challenges, which have made him a believer in
the power of liberty and the need to defend our freedoms from the
overreach of an out-of-control federal government. If he is good enough
for Ted Nugent, he is good enough for me!
