Hello Fellow Texians,
We have now come into a critical time for Texas independence. We need all hands on deck if we are going to get Representative Kyle Biedermann’s bill across the finish line. We are asking that all members contact your local Representative and Senator about the bill. To ensure that your efforts are effective, there are some simple things you can do.
First, make sure to download and read the referendum. Click here to go directly to that page. Many of the Representatives and Senators have not heard of the bill. They may have questions. Remember, the bill is calling for all Texans to have a vote. It is not a bill to leave.
I recommend this training video to help with your efforts as well. Nation Builder Training
Next, make sure that when you speak with them that you are respectful. You will always catch more flies with honey than vinegar. We need to make sure that we always bring credit upon ourselves.
Tell your story. This is very important. You will see a much better reaction from your Representatives if they understand both the mental and the emotional side of the issue. You are also less likely to get negative comments in return if they can see an emotional side.
Remember, this is not a partisan issue. The facts behind Texit will be beneficial to all Texans no matter what little category they try and put us into.
Make sure to ask, “Are you going to support this bill?” and, “Are you going to be a co-sponsor of the bill?” They will tell you if they are willing to do this. Insist that they put their support behind the bill if they do not want to sign onto the bill. There is a lot of misinformation out there in the mainstream. Direct them to our website if they start to say things we all know are proven false. This issue is also part of the GOP platform plank 65. It might be helpful to remind them about that. You can find that plank here on page 7.
Do not take the first “No” as a final answer. Call them often until they really look at the bill and know the facts surrounding it.
These steps will not only show that there is a large amount of support for the bill, but it will also show that we are informed and serious.
Texas First, Texas Forever!
