A lot of people talk about making a difference. A lot of people write on Facebook or Twitter about how they are ‘patriots’. Unfortunately, very few people give money to a candidate, even one with a proven record of supporting the positions that they write about on their social media accounts. In the same vein, very few ‘patriots’ get up off of their couch and out from behind their keyboards to actually help a candidate win an election.
Don’t be like those people. Do something besides moving your lips and fingers.
If you live in Harris County or Chambers County or Liberty County, you can make a difference this weekend. State Rep. Briscoe Cain will be block walking in Baytown on Saturday morning to support his re-election campaign. From the InBox:
Let’s take the fight to them! The liberal Austin cartel has recruited a big government opponent to challenge me for boldly representing your values. Join us July 15, to tell your neighbors why we need the #1 Conservative Representative in Texas to keep fighting for you!
Briscoe Cain’s #1 Re-Election Block Walk
When: 9 AM, Saturday, July 15.
Where: Krispy Kreme, 3422 Garth Rd, Baytown, TX 77521
RSVP to let us know you are willing to help! We can use drivers who are willing to use their vehicles to transport walkers and walkers who are willing to spread the word or assist. It’s easy and effective! We will walk you through every step!
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know you’re coming, and we’ll be sure to bring campaign literature and shirts!
P.S. If you can’t make this blockwalk, will you consider chipping in $10 to make sure our walkers have the shirts, water, and material they need to take our message to the voters?
Briscoe had a great first session. You know it was good when Texas Monthly named him as one of their ‘Worst’ legislators. That should mean something positive to anyone who calls themselves a Republican, especially given their reasoning:
When we asked Capitol insiders for Worst list suggestions, his name, almost universally, was the first one mentioned.
You want to know who I give the least amount of credibility to when deciding which legislator did a good job and which didn’t? Capital insiders, that’s who. There are very few people that crave more for attention from ‘journalists’ (I have to use that term loosely when talking about Texas political reporters) than so-called ‘capital insiders’. The inbreeding that goes on between Texas political reporters and Texas politicians rivals the mountains of Arkansas.
Even a few elected Harris County Republican officials have turned against him and are pushing an opponent in the 2018 primary. Sad but true. You’d think these guys would support a state representative with a rock solid conservative voting record, especially since they are the same people that tout Reagan’s commandment of someone who votes with me 80% of the time isn’t my enemy. But hey, Briscoe apparently didn’t kowtow to the ‘right’ officials, so they are going to teach him a lesson.
These clowns have a surprise coming. No one works their district harder than Briscoe. The clowns that are supporting yet another big government Republican to replace Briscoe are going to be embarrassed when he cleans their clock in the primary. I’d like to be in the room when they take a look at his fundraising efforts in the short time between the end of the session and the end of the fundraising period on June 30th. And yes, you’ll see my name on that report.
Make a difference. Support a candidate who is willing to buck the system. Come on out Saturday. If you can’t, why not chip in a few bucks. Beats spending it at Starbucks.
And if you want to know just how messed up Harris County Republicans are, look no further than this race. We have current Republican elected officials working to defeat a man that kept 100% of the campaign promises that he made to the voters that put him in office. Think about that.
