Many have succumbed to the option of letting “more well-informed neighbors” make the choices and act on the issues.This lack of involvement of conservative citizens has dealt America a heavy blow. Culture has become so corrupt that righteous moral behavior is mocked. Big government has usurped the decisions of future generations. The display of patriotism is deemed antiquated or intolerant, and citizens’ rights to speak in the name of Christ are on the verge of being outlawed.Time’s up. There is no more time to sit back and let someone else take care of Texas and America. We’ve wandered too far from the ideals that made America great. Every citizen must NOW resume the responsibility of citizenship and educate themselves about the issues and solutions.Saturday, August 14, 2010, in New Braunfels, Texas, we will have the opportunity to hear five conservative Texas Legislators lay out critical issues to be considered by the 2011 Legislature. We will learn about their proposed bills and the basis for their positions. Proverbs 24:6 says, “In multitude of counselors there is safety.” You are needed there. Your conservative friends are needed there.Help spread the word and help us get lots of concerned citizens registered. This is Texas’ first step to reclaiming our future.
