Are You A True Texan? These People Have A Program To Help You With That.
It's an interesting premise. A lot of us have pride in our hometowns or states that we grew up in. I've never seen something quite like this. There's a group that has a program that will turn you into a "certified true Texan."
So if you're having your doubts about your Texan-ness, there's hope for you.
No, This Isn't The Same Group As The Secession Group
In fact, that's not what they seem to be about at all.
They're more about political action within our current system. Their program teaches you all about what it means to be a Texan, and then how to get involved in politics so you can help preserve all that they claim is Texan.
I'm not really sure what most of that means. I'm just a simple Okie.
As a transplant, though, it did catch my attention.
Grassroots Politics, Religion, And Texan Pride
Digging through their website, a few things readily stand out. One, the group has a clear cut idea of what it means to be a Texan. Two, they have clear cut ideas on what it means to be conservative. Three, they love Jesus.
Their videos range on topics from what a Christian's role should be in politics (hint: it's not stay out of it), to what the size and scope of a government should be.
If It Sounds Like Your Kind Of Party (No Political Pun Intended), There's One Soon
What I also found interesting, is that they have events planned for Potter/Randall County. The events are their "Certified True Texan Courses"...courses. So, in case you've found yourself struggling with identifying as a true Texan or not, they'll be around to help you out with that.
Here's a link to see for yourself. Just know that politically it slants conservative, and religiously it slants Christian.
Is that what it means to be a true Texan?
