I want to urge you to make waves. I want to urge you to rock the boat. i want to urge you to get off yoru duff. I want you to speak out at whatever cost if it comes from your heart. You're going to build this country in which my six grandchildren will grow up. And when you see what you have done, I hope that you are proud of it. ~Ann Richards


Ann Richards, governor of Texas (1990-94) was known for her sharp wit, strong personality, and liberal political views, Richards fought for women's and minority rights and worked to bring more women and minorities into power.


Ann Richards, a Democrat, served as the 45th Governor of Texas from 1991 to 1995. She is one of my favourite politicians, no matter the country or era

"Ann Richards on How to Be a Good Republican: 1. You have to believe that the nation's current 8-year prosperity was due to the work of Ronald Reagan and George Bush, but yesterday's gasoline prices are all Clinton's fault. 2. You have to believe that those privileged from birth achieve success all on their own. 3. You have to be against all government programs, but expect Social Security checks on time."
