Protecting the Texas We Love and America's Future
As we edge closer to the 2024 Presidential Elections this November, it is clear this election cycle is the most critical of our lifetime. The stakes could not be higher, not just for the Lone Star State but for the entirety of our great Nation. It is imperative that we, as Republicans, unite around our shared conservative principles to champion American values and safeguard our cherished freedoms.

The Biden Administration and its allies in the radical left pose an unprecedented threat to our liberties. Their actions are far from mere political rhetoric and signal a blatant disregard for the 10th Amendment and an alarming intent to micromanage our daily lives. This encroach- ment
 upon our freedoms should serve as a wake-up call to every Texan 
about the gravity of this election
The wisdom of President Ronald Reagan rings just as true today as it did decades ago. "Freedom is a fragile thing and it's never more than one generation away from extinction." His guiding words under- score the vigilance required to preserve the democratic ideals bestowed by our forefathers and should serve as a rallying cry for every Republican.

Our Nation's challenges are very real, from the disastrous border policies that have allowed over 8 million illegal immigrants to cross into our country, to attacks on America's energy sector, which is a cornerstone of Texas' economy and key to national security. The radical left's agenda, if left unchecked
threatens to fundamentally alter the fabric of our nation. The Biden Administration's pause on lique- fied gas (LNG) exports, capitulating to extreme environmentalists, and proposals to federalize Texas' energy grid, exemplify the kind of overreach that we must stand against.

Furthermore, the prospect of a Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) presents a profound threat to our economic well-being, financial freedom and privacy. A national digital dollar means Americans could find themselves granting the federal unprecedented access to monitor and control our financial activities with complete disregard for protecting individual liberty, resembling China's "social credit" system.

As we stand at this crossroads, let us remember that elections have consequences. The vision of America as a land of freedom and opportunity is at stake. We owe it to the generations that sacrificed for our freedoms, and to future generations, to bear the torch of liberty. It is our duty to pull together, as Texans and Americans, to confront the crisis ahead with resolve and unity. In doing so, we honor the gift of democracy, ensuring that America remains the greatest Nation on earth.

Yours in Liberty,
Tan Parker
Texas State Senator
President's Message
2024. When I say that number, I can't decide if I feel excited, if I have trepidation or just have a vague feeling of being overwhelmed. probably a little bit of all three. But then I think of all the possibilities for the much needed change that a hard working people can achieve and I feel very hopeful. We are blessed to be a very involved and active club amd I think we can achieve very effective outcomes as we organize and engage for what is to come.
