The Rick Range radio ads ran all last week. We have been getting excellent feedback from all over the state. If you have not yet done so, please send your donation in whatever amount you can so that we can extend these ads that are effectively spreading the message and the name going right on up to Election Day March 6th. We will only be able to do that if you help. Thank you.
If you would like to help with this critical effort, please support Rick Range for Texas General Land Office Commissioner by making a secure donation via PayPal. Thank you in advance for your support.
Tomorrow February 20th is the start of Early Voting. It will run through Friday March 2nd. Please vote tomorrow and then spend the next ten days contacting everybody that you possibly can and get them to vote early. Make sure that they all know that the entire futute of the alamo hinges on this election.
This Early Voting period presents us with a golden opportunity to bank up a lead against George P. Bush that will be impossible for him to surmount on March 6th — if we all do it.
Everybody please put your maximum effort into this. Offer to give people rides to the polls. Remember that we have just this one shot to save the Alamo. Act as if the entire war depended on you alone. Don’t assume that others will take care of it.
Now is the time to put words into action. After March 6th it will be too late. If we all give it our best I have no doubt that on March 6th we will be victorious and the Alamo will be safe.
I thank you and the people of Texas will forever thank you.
Remember the Alamo!
P.S.—I know that this will require some work. But just think how great it will feel to know that you helped secure the Alamo for future generations.
Check out this great video. It tells the whole story.
What you need to know in a nutshell.
Listen to Rick Range's recent interview with Jim Lago about the threat Land Commissioner George P. Bush poses to the Alamo as we know it.
Since George P. Bush took over the Texas General Land Office in 2015, the agency has awarded about $164 million worth of state contracts to 12 companies with employees or political committees that have donated to Bush’s campaign, public records show.
Together, the 12 companies and their employees have given at least $111,175 to Bush’s campaign.
On Dec. 5, the state Senate Finance Committee questioned Land Commissioner George P. Bush and the agency’s general counsel, Jeff Gordon, about the three nonprofits the General Land Office had set up to manage, promote and raise money for the Alamo — each with its own mission but with identical boards made up of Bush and 10 of the state’s most recognizable movers and shakers.
An unfinished draft audit report on the Alamo—perhaps the latest political volley surreptitiously fired in a heated race for Texas land commissioner—has renewed concerns that the future of the Teas shrine has gotten mired in bureaucracy.
Knowing that the Alamo is the Texas Cradle of Liberty, it boggles the mind as to why the empty tomb memorializing the heroes of the Battle of the Alamo would be moved to an as yet unknown destination.
Land Commissioner George P. Bush told the editorial board of
Bryan-College-Station’s The Eagle that he believes Confederate
Heroes Day should not be a Texas state holiday.
"The Legislature needs to ake a deep look at the Rainy Day Fund. We need a special session, and the governor needs to call it."
The theme of this past Monday evening’s Kaufman County Tea Party-sponsored Land Commissioner Candidate Forum was “Remember the Alamo – just as it was,” as opposed to current Land Commissioner George P. Bush’s approach to “Re-Imagine the
"Right here, on this spot, is where the souls left the bodies of the Alamo defenders," said White.
The government’s seemingly sluggish response to Hurricane Harvey has been a headache for Land Commissioner George P. Bush, whose office plays a major role in getting Texans back into damaged homes.
One company that is trying to help him out — in more ways than one — is Horne
LLP, a big accounting firm that provides disaster recovery services to governments.
State legislators asked Bush to look for ways to provide more transparency in the management of the historic Alamo and 1836 battle site.
Controversy over the Texas Land Commissioner’s plans to “Re-imagine” the state’s most famous landmark has attracted three primary election opponents and put Bush on the hot seat for a bipartisan grilling by the Senate Finance Committee last week.
I attended a January 5 Republican Candidate Forum which gave me encouragement and disappointment. The sizable crowd gave us a strong, positive response. However, in chatting afterwards with those party activists and engaged voters, we uncovered an appalling problem.
After months of radio, social media, and personal interaction, a shocking number of people are still oblivious to the Bush Reimagine the Alamo plan that will turn the shrine into a politically-correct destination attraction. That can’t happen to the seat of Texas Independence and memorial to those who fought and died there in 1836.
According to the article, [Statewide Input Sought] the GLO has hired a St. Louis company, accompanied by a representative of the GLO, City of San Antonio, and the Alamo Endowment Board to travel around the state, collecting input from those of us whose voices have been heard through social media. Sounds great, right?
SEVEN BUCKS TO SAVE THE ALAMO
Our appeal for donations in order to do a statewide mailing has not raised enough funds to do one. However, we won’t allow that to impede our campaign. We have a less costly alternative that should be almost as effective. It is the most cost-efficient way dollar-for-dollar to reach the mass of voters in such a huge state.
If ALL of our followers who have yet to contribute donate 7 dollars or more, that would enable us to do a statewide radio ad campaign. This special discounted package rate was arranged by one of our supporters. With that amount we could blast this entire state with our Alamo message from the Panhandle to the Valley. I have no doubt it would have a tremendous impact.
We and those who have helped are fighting this battle just as hard as we can, but we can only go so far without adequate ammunition. We are going to do very well in this election, but with just a little help from everybody we could win the whole ballgame and ensure the future of the Alamo. Please consider for yourself whether that would be worth 7 bucks.
We already have an ad with an excellent and powerful message ready in the can. It is now up to you whether we will be able to fire it. Please click the donate button below. Or mail a check to Rick Range Campaign at 702 Briarwood Dr., Garland, TX 75041 -Rick Range
P.S.— If we do this we are going to have to buy the ads very soon. (The deadline is February 5th.) If we are to deliver this powerful blow the time to act is now.
First, we want to take this opportunity to thank our many supporters who have so tirelessly worked to assist our efforts. It has been a long uphill battle, but thanks to you, we have made tremendous progress in spreading the message about the dire threat to the future of the Alamo.
Now that Rick Range has officially filed as a candidate for Texas General Land Office Commissioner running against George P. Bush, we would like to ask all of our followers and supporters to make a one-time contribution of 25, 50, or 100 dollars to the campaign. So far this campaign has been almost entirely self-funded except for a few generous individuals.
We have a specific reason for making this request. If all of our followers donate an average amount of just $30, we will be able to do a statewide mailer to every single Republican Primary voter in State of Texas. In this one mailer we will be able to ensure that each and every voter is fully aware of what Bush has tried to do to the Alamo, as well as inform them about Rick Range's positions and qualifications for the office. We will also be able to make them aware of all of Rick's many major endorsements, such as National Right to Life and several others. Range is the conservative in this race. He is the one candidate that will take the fight to Bush and can beat him.
This one mailer will go a long way to negate the millions that Bush will undoubtedly spend getting out his misleading propaganda. It almost certainly would make a huge difference in the outcome of this election. And this is the only way to make absolutely certain that every person voting is aware of what is at stake.
Thirty dollars is certainly not a huge sacrifice for any of us who truly care about the Alamoâ€”but it could definitely determine the outcome. It could literally be the difference between victory and defeat. If you want to ensure the future of the Alamo that we all want, please step forward and do your part. If we all do this, victory is within our grasp.
November 10, 2017 -- The good news is that if all the voters of Texas become aware of the Alamo issue, George P. Bush will go down in flames in the March Republican Primary Election. The bad news is that right now I would hazard a guess that perhaps 20 percent of the electorate knows anything about it, and that may be overly optimistic.
Besides passing along information about the www.savethealamo.us website to everyone you possibly can and have them do the same, there is one other technique you can all help with that will be very effective.
Many Republican primary voters who may not do social media are regular listeners to local radio talk shows. I have already done about twenty radio interviews on these shows so far, covering most of the state. However there are two areas where we have had zero coverage. The largest is the Houston area which will comprise about one-third of the entire primary vote. The other is the Amarillo station which covers the entire Texas Panhandle.
It would be a great help if all of you would call in to these two shows and bring up the Alamo issue. The message can be very simple—Bush’s plan will take the focus off of the 1836 battle and turn the site into a money-making tourist theme park. For further details, you can refer all listeners to the www.savethealamo.us website.
The Houston show to call is the Michael Berry Show from 8-11am on Houston KTRH 740 AM. Their call-in number is 713-212-5874.
The Amarillo show to call is the Tim and Kelli Show from 5-9am on KGNC 710 AM. Their call-in number is 806-350-0710. You can all call in to these two shows regardless of what part of the state you live in.
Also, if you will send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org we can furnish you with a list of all the local radio talk shows in the entire state with contact information for all of them. You can email the show’s program director to request a time to talk or simply call the call-in number and get on the air. If we all commit to making this a MAJOR effort, we can make this issue the talk of Texas. This is what we must do in order to defeat Bush.
After announcing his candidacy on November 1 in front of the Alamo, Rick Range officially filed for the office of Texas General Land Office Commissioner to oppose George P. Bush in the March 6 Republican Primary. Range said, "I am entering this race in order to restore integrity, efficiency, and accountability to this important office. I will be the conservative in this race."

We are a grass roots organization dedicated to preserving the integrity of our most sacred Texas Shrine. Please stand with us in face of revisionist history elites and politically correct financiers of George P. Bush. Say NO to "Reimagine the Alamo."
"If enacted this plan by George P. Bush will be every bit as destructive to the Alamo as was the Mexican Army in 1836. Every Texan should be outraged.Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush is foisting upon the people of Texas a horrible and disrespectful plan for the Alamo. He has consistently thwarted or ignored every objection by the citizens of this State and all attempts to stop it.The current plan for the Alamo is a looming disaster that must be prevented."- Rick Range
