The gloves are off.
The Republican establishment is about to feel the power of the people - yet again!
Former Alaska Governor and Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin endorsed Kristina Pierson and Greg Abbott in their prospective races in Texas.
But it's NOT just Conservatives energized by Palin's announcement. Call them grassroots, call them Tea Party, call them independents, libertarians, disillusioned Democrats, disgruntled Republicans, call them disenfranchised fed up Americans- but by ALL means- call them "We The People."
Katrina Pierson is running against Pete Sessions, who reportedly spends more time with his new wife in Florida than he does than he does in Texas, - voting against the will of his constituency when it comes to fiscal responsibility, Obamacare, amnesty and spying on the American people by the NSA.
Pierson is endorsed by The Tea Party- and Tea Party Express chairman Amy Kremer wrote an insightful op-ed about her for Rare- Katrina Pierson And Her Story Are What the Republican Party Desperately Needs. -
Sarah Palin's Facebook Post Endorsing Kristina Pierson and Greg Abbott of Texas
Texas, it starts with you!
2014 is here. The choices are becoming clearer, and the battle lines are being drawn. The GOP Beltway crowd has convinced itself that the way to maintain or retake the majority is through compromise and capitulation on important issues like amnesty, Obamacare, and the ever-increasing federal debt. They think that by making deals with a deeply unpopular and divisive incumbent president on issues that Americans oppose, they’ll somehow endear themselves to voters.
Enough is enough. The permanent political class in D.C. won’t listen. So, let’s start putting our efforts behind good new candidates who will go to Washington not to line their own pockets, but to help restore our country. It’s time to put inspiration, ingenuity, and integrity over incumbency in the GOP.
Let’s start in Texas. The lines couldn’t be clearer. Katrina Pierson is an emerging leader and important voice for the future of the grassroots conservative movement. Her life’s story is full of hardships she has fought to overcome, which taught her firsthand the importance of self-reliance, hard work, and the blessings of liberty.
A feisty fighter for freedom, Katrina is taking on a powerful incumbent who has so lost touch with the people of his district that he’s not even bothering to spend much time in Texas anymore. It’s not only his district he’s lost touch with, but also the issues important to the voters there. He used his powerful position to oppose the movement to defund Obamacare, has voted to raise the debt ceiling, and has been an advocate for the NSA intrusion into our freedoms. When asked about Katrina’s primary challenge, he said, “these things happen.” Yes, they do. We all know what happens when we come together to support a good candidate like Katrina – the permanent political class loses and We the People win! We win by electing a fighter we can depend on like Katrina Pierson. Ted Cruz calls Katrina “an utterly fearless principled conservative.” He should know. Katrina was among the conservative grassroots warriors in Texas who worked tirelessly to elect Senator Cruz.
Early voting started yesterday, Texas. Get out now and vote for Katrina. Send a message to the GOP elites on behalf of Katrina, just like you did for Ted Cruz in 2012.
And while you are out there voting for Katrina, check the box for another good conservative – Greg Abbott for Governor of Texas. Like Katrina, Greg has overcome many personal obstacles and challenges, which have made him a believer in the power of liberty and the need to defend our freedoms from the overreach of an out-of-control federal government. If he is good enough for Ted Nugent, he is good enough for me!
God bless you and God bless America.
