On November 1, in front of the Alamo, Rick Range announced his candidacy for Texas General Land Office Commissioner with these words, "Regrettably, all of the professional politicians in this state have led us on and let us down. Not one of them is willing to step up and cross the line to defend the Alamo. They are all apparently too afraid to oppose the Bush political machine.
"I therefore have decided to step up and cross the line myself. I am today hereby officially declaring my candidacy for the Republican nomination for the office of General Land Office Commissioner of Texas. I am entering this race in order to restore integrity, accountability, and transparency to this important office."
Later in the speech, he went on to say, "I am NOT a professional politician nor a member of the political elite that has been allowed to lord it over the citizens of this State for way too long. The sad truth is we can’t afford to let George P. Bush remain the Texas General Land Office Commissioner any longer. He has already amply demonstrated that he cannot be entrusted with the future of the Alamo."

"Together, we can, we must, and we WILL defeat George P. Bush in the crucial battle for the future of the Alamo in the Republican Primary next March 6th. I would be truly honored to serve as your Commissioner. Thank you all so much for your support.
"And in the words of Juan Seguin, one of the great Texas patriots at the Battle of San Jacinto, Recuerden el Álamo! Remember The Alamo! "

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 email@example.com 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.
On Tuesday, November 14th, Rick Range filed to run for General Land Office Commissioner of Texas. Range is the first and only candidate to have officially filed to run against George P. Bush.

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.
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
