Avoid disaster — vote Republican

We Galvestonians are a special breed of Texan.

There is something about the fiber of people who live on a barrier island that sets them apart.

We have a reputation for being a friendly bunch who happily interact with tourists everyday.

So, upon seeing the news that Susan Criss will be sharing an office with a group called Battleground Texas, which is run by out-of-state campaign operatives of President Barack Obama, I think it would only be fitting to offer a bit of advice to these tourists running Criss’ campaign.

Unlike your boss — President Obama — Texans don’t like government trying to control our lives.

We don’t need more government interference and higher taxes, we need less.

States where you’ve won before — Illinois, Michigan and California — are going bankrupt, and citizens are paying exorbitantly high taxes and getting corrupt services in return. Their economies are in shambles.

Meanwhile, here in Texas, we are enjoying sustained economic growth and individual liberty as we continue our pursuit of happiness.  

If you are here to try to change us to something akin to the aforementioned disaster areas, save your energy for some outdoor sports on the beach.

Keep Texas leading the nation to prosperity. Vote Republican and enjoy our piece of paradise.

Tom Perry
