Mission #3: Protect and Strengthen Texas' Economy
"The rich ruleth the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender." Proverbs 22:7
"For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat." 2 Thesselonians 3:10
"But if any does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever." 1 Timothy 5:8
Conservatives still control Texas; in fact, we strengthened our hand. While big government and Obama's entitlement culture won in most of America, it lost in Texas. This offers the 83rd Texas Legislature tremendous opportunity.
Texas must become Galt's Gulch. America is about to become very, very hostile to productive citizens. Texas, to the degree it is possible, must be shelter in the coming storm.
There is one place in America where people still fear God and support free enterprise; that place is Texas. With abundant prayer and prudent financial stewardship, Texas can be a beacon of light to a lost and dying America. What's the alternative?!?
Let's define prudent financial stewardship: passing a non-watered down version of the Texas Budget Compact while simultaneously cutting spending to balance the budget without accepting blood money from Washington. If Texas draws this line in the sand, Washington will attempt to bribe us into selling our soul. No thank you, Texas can cut spending.
The first step towards prudent financial stewardship is obvious: Bryan Hughes must become Speaker of the Texas House. This is non-negotiable. More on this soon.
Obviously, prudent financial stewardship won't be popular in certain quarters. So what?!? Other places in America support big government and Obama's entitlement culture. Texas does not. If you want big government and Obama's entitlement culture, move to California.
This won't be easy, but with humility and prayer, it can be done. Prudent financial stewardship will make Texas a beacon of hope when Obama's entitlement culture collapses. What's the alternative?!?
