Time for more never-ending massive celebration in Texas! Our beloved great republic of Texas just went from Rick Perry, America’s best governor, to Greg Abbott, America’s new best governor.
Godspeed Gov. Rick Perry; godspeed Gov. Greg Abbott; We the people — blood brothers!
We Texans should never fail to count our blessings every day, for there is no question that we here in the mighty Lone Star State have the best “we the people” representation of any state in the USA.
From Gov. Abbott, to Attorney General Ken Paxton, through most of the legislature and state reps, we surely have done a fine job seeking out, vetting, and electing true statesmen who abide by the U.S. Constitution and the Texas Constitution and the will of “we the people.”
Thank God Almighty and say Hallelujah like you mean it! Pass the ammo, and lots of it.
When it comes to real freedom, ultra-quality of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness as ultimately defined by our hunting rights and gun rights, our sensible wildlife regulations and the overall environment of individual liberties, the Nugent family found our home here in Texas as soon as we figured it out.
Though there are some great governors and great states across this grand country, I’m thinking South Dakota, North Dakota, Louisiana, Arkansas, Arizona, Idaho, there are also genuinely bad regimes and states that spit in the face of the Constitution where the citizens are dangerously, if not down-right insanely over-restricted by anti-American goons.
The poster child for sheer insanity has to go to California, where its subjects are not allowed to hunt mountain lions, but the state charges these very subjects’ outrageous amounts of tax dollars to hire government killers to kill their cougars for them.
Add to that the engineered tax waste for compensating farmers and ranchers for all the guaranteed destroyed livestock and you have a bizarre condition that is impossible to explain on any honest level.
And that’s not the worst of it! Not only can’t California residents hunt the flourishing cougar population in their own state, if a Californian goes out of state on a mountain lion hunting trip and kills a lion legally in another state, the hunter is forbidden to bring the lion home to eat or have mounted.
You heard that right. Jerry Brown and his gaggle of insane bureaucrats have got to be from another planet where honesty, logic, truth, common sense, and science are banned.
Then there is the sheer goofiness, and many of us believe to be the clear and present criminal infringement of our sacred Second Amendment guaranteed right to keep and bear arms, where a law abiding California resident can own an AR15 style rifle, the most popular, commonly owned firearm in America, but not if it has standard AR features.
Can you in your wildest imagination figure out what sort of missing brain function must exist in what otherwise appears to be an upright human being that would make a simple pistol-type grip illegal?
What sort of mindless creature would actually believe that a flash suppressor somehow makes a firearm more dangerous or crime prone?
Here’s a real doozy to test your tolerance for absurdity; not only have the brain-dead bureaucrats of California outlawed standard capacity magazines, but get this, California ARs are only legal if the magazine cannot be released with a finger. By law, California ARs are only legal if the magazine can be released with a “magazine release tool.”
OK, I’ll give you a moment to pick yourself up from the floor and regain your composure from that surprise bizzarro belly laugh, even if it really isn’t funny at all.
You ready? In the land of Oz California, a bullet qualifies as a legitimate AR magazine release tool.
Feel safer yet, or just scared to death that such evil, nasty freedom-hating weirdos exist in this otherwise great country?
God help us all.
I could go on.
While good American citizens in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, Illinois, and California are subjected to tragic over-regulation, we here in Texas know exactly why more freedom-loving Americans are flooding to this last best place.
I know Gov. Abbott. This great man, great Texan, great American knows exactly who he is and lives his oath to serve his “we the people” employers. He has stated unambiguously on many occasions that he takes his oath to heart and will not waver from the clear guidelines of the U.S. Constitution.
As we throttle into 2015, those of us fortunate and smart enough to be Texans know that we are leading the way, and though we have it made with such great leadership, it is never a good time to take it easy and relax just because we have it so good here.
Our elected employees in Texas expect us to keep raising hell, they want us to increase and upgrade our communication with them so they never lose touch with the most important and powerful guiding force in the history of mankind; a free people who refused the evil control of kings, emperors, dictators and tyrants, where “we the people” call the shots, and that this sacred experiment in self-government came about by divine intervention from the very hand of God.
Texas is America my spirit blood brothers. And if America wants to get back on track, there is no better guiding light than Texas.
God bless America! God bless Texas! Godspeed Texans.
