From remarks made by President Richard W. Fisher of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas before the Dallas and Fort Worth chapters of Financial Executives International:
“If you remove the job-creating machine of Texas from the U.S. economy, the nation has experienced job destruction that has occurred over the past 12 years in the middle-income quartiles.”
Translation: without Texas providing growth – the only real growth – America would have experienced a second Great Depression. Without Conservative economic policies, without Republican leadership, America would have suffered even more than it has under the misguided and inept leadership of President Obama and the Democrat party. Texas is the only thing preventing America from going under.
