America has gone from being a great country to one of uncertainty and fear. This is not the America that I recognize, nor is it the America of freedom and opportunity.
The America I love seeks to protect and defend the liberties of economic and personal freedoms of her citizens. We are a country of innovation and courage, but the politics and partisanship of Washington are failing us. This failure has overshadowed America's greatness.
Restoring America will require women and men of courage and conviction to act in her defense. We need real solutions to rebuild America into a strong country. Citizens should be proud of America as she once again builds her strength as the beacon of prosperity and freedom.
We Texans must stick together to fight for true economic freedom: free enterprise, capitalism, free trade and limited government.
This economic freedom can only come from RED states like Texas where Republican legislatures have demonstrated that businesses can still succeed without Keynesian big government policies that suffocate our freedom.
It was President Reagan who restored integrity to the presidency. He spoke of our free market, and our national character as Americans, and he made us believed that the Spirit of America is not one big Government “beast,” as he called it, but rather the Spirit of a free people who want a limited government. He reignited these principles in our party and it was, in essence, these values of limited government, economic freedom and free enterprise--coupled with a strong military power that provided Americans with a rekindled sense of pride in our nation.
As we see our population rapidly expand, we Texans need to work together to Rebuild the American Spirit that is based on economic freedom and Texas conservative values.
To carry this fight forward after the primary, we must transition from Linda Vega for Texas U.S. Senate race to Linda for Texas Committee so together we can fight to protect traditional Texas values, cultural and economic freedoms, that have made Texas great.
