2021-22 | 87th Texas Legislative Session

2021-22 | 87th Texas Legislative Session

Was the 87th Texas Legislature a success or failure for conservative values across this great state? How did Republican members of the Texas House and Senate perform? How do we measure this?

2020 RPT Legislative Priorities

The delegates involved in formulating these priorities represent grassroots Republicans from 31 State Senate Districts. The delegates are chosen by Republican grassroots activists at the precinct and county level to ensure it is a bottom-up process designed to make certain that local values are represented.


These priorities are the measuring stick.

Brian Bledsoe

State Director, BLEXIT Texas  

An Introduction to BLEXIT Texas

After years of living in total indifference to the world of politics, in 2007, Brian Bledsoe’s outlook on life radically changed! Repenting and believing in Jesus Christ was the turning point, which went on to reshape Brian’s life in a big way!

In 2008, Brian came to the revelation that the principles of the Democratic party did not coincide with biblical principles! Since then, he’s been involved politically whether it’s volunteering in various conservative organizations or serving as a national delegate to the 2016 and 2020 Republican Conventions.

He has been a contributor at Politichicks.com, hosts a podcast called TrendChat, where he talks about what’s trending in politics, entertainment, or culture, and gives a unique perspective from a Christian conservative point of view.

Now, Brian serves as State Director for Blexit Texas where he hopes to guide and inform others who are experiencing the beginning of their own BLEXIT – an informed political journey with a spiritual awakening!

Join us to more about BLEXIT (“black exit”), a movement that aims to encourage black Americans to abandon the Democratic party.

Bottom line up front – the attack on Trump  and Chairman of the US House Freedom Caucus puts a hot new war right in front of us. We need YOUR help to keep proven conservative  citizen fighters on the frontlines as we prepare the next generation of fighters to lead!

Our liberties – given by God and codified in the Bill of Rights – are NOW under assault at an unprecedented level. We MUST HAVE citizen leaders who will boldly fight without flinching – citizens willing to give up leisure time, financial resources, popularity with the elected class, their reputations, and their last breath to stand against tyrants.

Today and in days to come, the risks will grow for these citizen leaders because Big Government is coming after conservatives with a vengeance.

Making the case:  Everything we hold dear is NOW at stake!

The weaponization of the FBI to raid the private home of President Donald J. Trump was just the beginning salvo of a long, hot siege until the November 8, 2022, mid-term elections.

Next came the confiscation of the cell phone of US Rep. Scott Perry (R-PA) in front of his family. Perry is the head of the House Freedom Caucus – the out-in-front face of the conservative trouble-making wing of Congressional Republicans.

Confiscation of that phone (and perhaps more?) will yield a goldmine of information to target anyone standing against draconian government and its assault on civil liberties. The operatives actually running DC government will now have access to Perry’s calendar for Freedom Caucus meetings, their sources, private conversations, information from unofficial whistleblowers, strategies, and donors. The possibilities are endless for new conservative targets.

These attacks are but the first round in a newly intensified war openly declared on conservatives. The desired effect? Chill free speech; scare people into silence; frighten them away from activist meetings and from public testimony; force citizens and conservative elected officials to cower in fear.

We won’t submit to fear. We won’t stop fighting for our God-given rights!

Grassroots America – We the People will continue to answer the call to unite and network local conservative groups across Texas to more effectively fight at the local, state, and federal level

Fight to stop local pornographic smut in public schools and libraries, the grooming of children by the drag queen culture, and Cultural Marxism shoved at students to make them hate America, disrespect their parents, and ridicule Christian values.

Fight to pass strong conservative legislation (not show bills) in Austin to truly secure our elections; restore criminal penalties for voter fraud; stop the sexualization of children; abolish abortion; defend gun rights from Cornyn-style bills; ban chemical and surgical sex change procedures in children; stop the southern border invasion and taxpayer handouts to illegals; and advance/defend parental rights in education and from rogue CPS agents.  We also KNOW from the RESULTS of past legislative sessions that Democrat committee chairs help Uni-party Republicans kill conservative legislation and pass “show” bills. It’s a cozy tradeoff.

Fight for restrained federal government by educating activists about what limited government actually means, teaching them to vet US House and US Senate candidates based on liberty principles, and spotlighting Rino voting records.

We’re preparing the next generation of conservative fighters!

With decades of leadership, organizing, political, and policy experience, Grassroots America is actively recruiting, educating, and mentoring the next generation of conservative activists to take our places through Coalition-building and recognition of excellent work.

We faithfully pledge to you that we will continue the mission we began in 2008 to unite, educate, empower, and inspire our fellow Texans (and beyond) to bravely fight to save Liberty from utter destruction. As always, we are called to do this as volunteers with no salary, commission, or income for our work.

Will YOU help us continue?

Will YOU help us recognize our 2022 Champions of Freedom to encourage them to keep fighting?

PS After vascular surgeries, followed by open heart surgery, I am working hard to be able to return to my beloved grassroots friends on Sept. 10! It would mean so very much to me to see you there!

Dateline: July 16, 2014 | Texas Grassroots Leaders Demand National Guard at Border, Special Session

We’ve been here before – during the Obama Administration. Our message to Republican Gov. Rick Perry and Republican Attorney General Greg Abbott was the SAME eight long years ago as it is today in July 2022! This time we are asking Republican Gov. Greg Abbott and Republican Attorney General Ken Paxton to act!

On Wednesday, July 16, 2014, Grassroots America organized a news conference in the Speaker’s pressroom at the State Capitol. Assembled were various TEA party leaders from around the state.

The leaders called on Governor Rick Perry and Attorney General Greg Abbott to declare an “invasion” and invoke Article 1, Section 10, Clause 3 of the US Constitution, call up the Texas National Guard and the Texas Military as defined by the Texas Constitution and secure our border! 

Grassroots America’s Executive Director JoAnn Fleming was joined by Dr. Margarita DeLa Garza-Grahm (Tyler surgeon), Ken Emanuelson (Grassroots Texans Network), Maria Espinoza (the Remembrance Project), Jim Gibson (Texas Border Volunteers), Roberto Gonzalez (Clear Lake Tea Party), Larry Korkmas (TFIRE), Alice Linahan (Women on the Wall), Ray Myers (Kaufman County Conservative), Mike Openshaw (Texas Legislative Watch), Katrina Pierson (Garland Tea Party/Dallas Tea Party).

Dateline: September 3, 2014 | Texas Border Crisis Action Plan


Six weeks later, on September 3, 2014, Dale Huls (Bowie County Patriots, formerly Clear Lake Tea Party) and JoAnn Fleming released an incredibly detailed and deeply researched “Texas Border Crisis Action Plan:  A Plan to Secure the Border with Mexico and Protect the Health, Safety, and Economy of the State of Texas.”

Grassroots leaders from across Texas spoke with numerous elected officials – from State Senators and State Representatives, the Governor’s Office, the Texas Attorney General. US Senator Ted Cruz, (Cornyn was already a border sell-out back then), and several US Representatives. Any action on their part? Nope. The border is still wide open, isn’t it?

We are so thankful that Wade Miller, Russ Vought, and Ken Cuccinelli with Center for Renewing America understand this issue from a Constitutional perspective. It matters NOT that this has never been tried before. The Founders sacrificed to give Americans tools to preserve sovereignty and liberty! We should use them no matter how much the media and the cheap labor lobby howl.

Center for Renewing America has been working non-stop, imploring Arizona and Texas officials to act on the Constitutional solution to a federal government that has purposefully neglected its Constitutional duty to its citizens.
