To stand up to the gun lobby and the cowardly republicans who are in their pockets as bought and paid for.

5. Beto is FRAMING his argument....Getting his message out.

1. He has a long term strategy.
2. He knows his argument frame.
3. He refuses to be nice.
4. He is throwing punches.

In a nutshell, he is getting across to voters. Beto got under the skins of Gregg Abbot and the Mayor of Uvalde, Texas. Getting into "good trouble" in the way Beto can. Rest assure he will be in Houston on Friday to join in on any protesting when the NRA has their rah-rah convention.

11. Beto was speaking for 90% of Americans, and that band of political

crooks in Texas at the school were representing the other 10%. They kicked out the voice of the American people, and stood for the dregs.

15. Wow! He was absolutely incandescent!

This man has passion; he isn't afraid to speak truth to power.
There's not a bit of bullshit in this guy.
On the other hand, Abbott, Patrick, and Paxton could fertilize a 10,000 acre farm with the crap they're spewing out...human manure spreaders.
And they're totally unconcerned about the deaths their morally depraved and spiritually bankrupt gun policies are causing.

18. THIS is what we need more of in this country!

People with backbone and courage and unafraid of the likes of Abbott and his goons. He is young, he is passionate, he has energy and he is sincere.

We need more just like him.

The machine has caused democrats to lose what they could have won.

26. Beto makes a good point

repukes like to point to mental illness as the cause, not guns - but they fail there as well - they show ZERO support for adequate mental healthcare

30. I hope to hell he is the next governor of Texas

Once he has a bit of that experience under his belt, then he should run for president. I didn't like him running for president before because I didn't think he had enough experience.

35. just saw clip from before the above on evening news

ABC.

This clip was inside and when he spoke, the security around Abbott looked very threatened and then they started advancing on Beto.

I wish I could watch it twice. Wow, unbelievable.

The beginning of the segment talked about how Abbott was saying guns are not the problem.

I don't live in Texas and from what I've heard they're gun crazy down there, so maybe Abbott can get away with this. I find it unbelievable myself.

39. Beto is onto something big time

Jump into the rage and shock and anger while it's raw and hot, instead of cowering into the background with fear. Couple the rage with change while people can really feel it. This is how it's done. This is how you make change.

He's got nothing to lose. He needs to keep being confrontational calling out the Repubs. Being nice will not work.
