Texas Governor Gives ‘Most Important Political Speech of Our Generation’

Red Millennial

On Friday the Texas Gov. Greg Abbott gave an impassioned speech on the need for states to call an Article V Convention of States, and it’s already sending shockwaves through political circles and energizing the grassroots nationwide.

Abbott’s appeal to the Texas policymakers was met with an immediate and prolonged standing ovation. In a Facebook post Michael Farris, the co-founder of the Convention of States Project, posted a link to the Governor’s speech.

An American Resolution

Red Millennial

I’m convinced 2016 is going to be a monumental year for America. There are things that greatly concern me about what is happening in America. In the past that would have discouraged me. I now see that there is great reason to hope. I see great evidence that Americans are waking up and working to take back their liberty.

With this in mind, I wrote down a few reminders for myself.

act with courage, for fear breeds apathy.
never settle for injustice, for that is its own EVIL.
LISTEN AND LEARN, FOR IGNORANCE BELIES UNDERSTANDING .
