Texas is one of our largest states.
Yesterday, with $5,000.00 that American Workers Coalition and Protect U.S. Workers raised to get on the ballot and a website where I told my story, I received 20,004 votes out of 1,925,191 votes.
Senator Cornyn won the republican nomination with 1,469,209 of those votes.
Imagine if I had had the funding so that I could have went to our largest cities and told my story and received half of those votes.
Thankfully our larger newspapers asked me to tell some of my story in their voters guide which helped a lot as I know very few of those 20,004 people that believe what we are doing is necessary.
You see, our stories has a major impact on all of the families in Texas, and in your state.
Because with the type of jobs that we are hiring the most people for in our states, you can’t build a prosperous and successful family on 10, 15 and 20 dollar a hour jobs when it takes at least that much to put a roof over your head.
And as long as we allow our businesses to send our best paying jobs offshore, this will decrease the best paying jobs available and force your family to accept low paying jobs just to survive with little chance or opportunity to build a great future.
And as long as we allow our businesses to import non-immigrant guest workers to take the remaining best paying jobs, this also will decrease the best paying jobs available and force your family to accept these low paying jobs just to survive with little chance or opportunity to build a great future.
Imagine if 2 people, a republican and a democrat for each of our 50 states would learn what is in these books and carry this flag over that hill, what it would do for the future of our citizens here in America.
Sure, most will fail.
But some will make it, and that will change the conversation.
Will you be one of those that try?
I have to lick my wounds for a bit, but I’m game if you are.
