Every generation of Americans has the duty and privilege of standing guard at the watchtower of liberty. In that hour they define themselves. Some have held their ground against all attacks; others have slept or quarreled while enemies forced open the gates. History and the world are waiting to see what you will make of the hour that is given to you.
God has blessed America with a strong Biblical foundation. The revolutionary strategies of our Founding Fathers have led to the most successful nation in the history of the world. We have survived attacks from without and within, though never before at the same time. Now we are simultaneously defending America from external enemies determined to destroy us and defending American principles in the battle of ideas here in our own homeland. This is the hour in which your generation must answer the call to leadership.
This call to leadership is not for the faint of heart. This is not the place, nor the time, to seek fame and fortune. We do not need more self-serving politicians, we need more self-sacrificing patriots. If you are prepared to raise your standards, leave behind the limits of mediocrity, and join our Founding Fathers in a pledge of lives, fortunes, and sacred honor, then you can help your generation ensure that the Torch of Freedom burns even brighter than ever before. I salute your courage and look forward to seeing you at the next Patriot Academy!
By His Grace,
Texas State Representative, 1999-2003
Founder of The Torch of Freedom Foundation
