Come to Austin: An Open Letter to Glenn Beck
Dear Mr. Beck,
In case you missed it, last night Governor Perry called a special session of the Texas Legislature. This could be really good, but it could also be a disaster. We could use your help.
The reason Texas Legislators ignore the will of voters is because they assume voters won't find out. The Capital press corps LOVES big government, because it increases their own power. That's where you come in.
If you were to PUBLICLY let the Legislature know that you're watching them, it could stop a lot of mischief before it gets started. The facts are damning, they just need wider exposure. Plus, it will drive the Austin insider crowd nuts, and that alone is worth it!
In addition, you ought to consider seriously taking a day trip to Austin to personally lobby your legislator. If you lead by example, then thousands (if not tens) of Texans will follow. Logistically, you could do radio from the South Steps of the Capitol and television from the Capitol Auditorium.
This special session will have a major impact on the long-term economic future of this state. It can go either way. We could sure use your help.
