“We will have so much winning that you may get bored with winning,” Donald Trump often joked during his campaign for the presidency, before acknowledging that “you'll never get bored with winning.”
Whatever your personal views of Trump, you've got to admit he was right about that. No one ever gets bored with winning, and no one ever gets tired of hearing good news.
We Texans should know. If anyone could get bored with winning or tired of good news, it would be us. Winning and good news seem to seek us out, but there's a reason for it, and President Trump and the rest of the country would do well to study our example and emulate it nationally.
What's the secret of our success? The reason so much winning comes our way is because we've put out a welcome mat for it. We've let the world know that we like winning and that anyone else who likes winning is welcome here.
That's why Business Facilities Magazine recently recognized us as the state with the best business climate in the nation. Speaking of good news, there's some more of it.
“Texas aggressively is expanding the frontier of its economic development hegemony, whether it’s from pulling new revenue out of ancient oil deposits far underground or expanding the nation’s most-advanced semiconductor fabrication hub, to preparing to seize a leadership position in the emerging commercial space-launch sector,” said magazine editor Jack Rogers. “The sky’s the limit in the Lone Star State.”
Like Rick Perry before him, Gov. Greg Abbott is following a proven model.
“Economic liberty is why Texas leads in job creation and in corporate expansion and relocations,” Abbott affirmed. “Restrained government, lower taxes, smarter regulations, right-to-work laws and litigation reform – these are the pro-growth economic policies that help free enterprise flourish and that attract business to Texas from states that overtax and overregulate.”
The way to make America great again is to make it more like Texas.
