WASHINGTON, DC -- U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, released the following statement in observance of Texas Independence Day:
Courage and a love of liberty have long been defining characteristics of the Texas spirit. Both were exemplified 178 years ago when fifty-nine delegates convened in Independence Hall at Washington-on-the-Brazos to declare Texas' independence.
Inflamed by General Santa Anna's refusal to abide by the Mexican Constitution of 1824 and inspired by the United States first Declaration of Independence, the men produced their own Declaration and resolved that the people of Texas do now constitute a free, Sovereign, and independent republic.
The same love of life, liberty, and property of the people that spurred the Texians at the Alamo and throughout the Revolution still lives in each Texan today. They fought for it. They died for it. We owe it to their sacrifice to carry the torch of freedom for future generations. And we will.
Keep that resolve strong and when anyone threatens our liberties, proudly say, as only a Texan can, come and take it!
In honor of Texas Independence Day, I resurrect and old tagline:
Cruz, like everyone else in Washington, knows that Obama is an illegal alien.
That means Cruz is part of the problem with our country, not part of the solution.
HAPPY TEXAS INDEPENDENCE DAY TO ALL
Texas State Song:
Texas, our Texas! All hail the mighty State!
Texas, our Texas! So wonderful so great!
Boldest and grandest, Withstanding ev’ry test;
O Empire wide and glorious, You stand supremely blest.
God bless you Texas! And keep you brave and strong,
That you may grow in power and worth,
Thro’out the ages long.
Texas, O Texas! Your freeborn single star,
Sends out its radiance to nations near and far.
Emblem of freedom! It sets our hearts aglow,
With thoughts of San Jacinto and glorious Alamo.
Texas, dear Texas! From tyrant grip now free,
Shines forth in splendor your star of destiny!
Mother of heroes! We come your children true,
Proclaiming our allegiance, our faith, our love for you.
Back when men were men or they didn’t survive...
Who is acting as part of the solution?
Great day in Texas....Don’t forget, Texans, that Tuesday is our primary day! Get out the votes to keep Texas constitutionally strong.
Just say “NO” to Cornyn.
Just say “NO” to all Democrats
Sheriff Joe. Otherwise, no one else in public office.
Thank you for Senator Cruz, please elect more like him...
