Texas ~ Tea-party beauty surprises governor raceSubmitted by JO4RP on Thu, 02/27/2014 - 08:45
WASHINGTON – Lisa Fritsch became a conservative in the second grade and a Republican in college.
The tea-party mother of two and GOP gubernatorial candidate in Texas vividly remembers the day she asked her divorced mother to stop working a third job. Her mother had taken that job so her daughter could have tap shoes and piano lessons.
But the girl was embarrassed by her mother working at the Piggly Wiggly, and a friend told her they qualified for public assistance, which, she learned, would also mean better snacks and more toys.
When she asked her mother to quit and go on the dole, her mother abruptly stopped the car and defiantly declared,”I’d rather starve than go down the path of victimization where you might never have dignity in your life again.”
