Austin LLC Reception—How Renewed Patriotism Can Save Our Country
Tuesday, March 10, 2020

Texas Public Policy Foundation

Austin, TX 78701
Nearly 250 years after our nation’s founding, Americans face a crisis. It’s not economic, though it does have economic repercussions. And it’s not political, though our politics suffer as a result. Unfortunately, it’s an existential crisis—one that threatens our identity as a people. And it’s of our own making.
We no longer love our country.
Evidence of this crisis abounds. Public opinion polls show a historically low belief in American principles; college professors actively undermine those principles by teaching a perverted, counterfactual picture of America; and the school teachers trained by those professors take those same “lessons” into their classrooms, ruining the natural patriotism of American students.
Fortunately, the solution to this crisis is straightforward. It will, however, take a concerted effort: we have to redouble our commitment to learn American history—the good, the bad, and the in-between. We ought to learn what makes our nation not merely distinctive, but unique—truly one of a kind—in the history of the world.
Please join the Austin LLC* and Dr. Kevin Roberts, Ph.D. for a conversation about how we, together as Americans, can commit to a shared effort to renew our patriotism by renewing our understanding of our nation’s history, heroes, and achievements. The fruit will be monumental, home and abroad.
Complimentary drinks and snacks will be served. RSVP is required.
*Liberty Leadership Council events are open to young professionals between the ages of 21 and 40 who are looking to get involved in conservative public policy. Click here for more information.
