We have been abandoned by our current administration and Texans are suffering for it. As a result, we have Texans who are homeless, Texans living in deplorable levels of poverty, Texans suffering from all forms of illness and dying from lack of affordable healthcare, Texans suffering from not being paid enough for their labor, and Texans penniless after a lifetime of work. This must stop. Our values as Texans are integrity, honesty, freedom, and independence. And to live them, we must have a foundation of compassion for one another where we responsibly invest our time and money in well-designed programs. It’s time to come together and express our true values as Texans.
