The monthly San Angelo Republican Women’s meeting was held on Monday, August 5th at the WTRC Conference Center with premier guest speaker Nick Adams, Founder and Executive Director, of The Foundation for Liberty and American Greatness (FLAG). This organization is about educating Americans about the values and principles that make the United States so exceptional.
Born in Australia he was always fascinated by America. “The excitement, intensity, the people are dynamic, enterprising and confident, that attracted me,” commented Adams. This fascination grew as he traveled to the U.S. through the university. “I was an American trapped inside an Australian body,” stated Adams.
Adams was able to migrate to the U.S. in 2016 through an extraordinary ability green card, after a costly process that lasted about four and a half years. Through this process, Adams wrote a book entitled “Green Card Warrior: My Quest for Legal Immigration in an Illegals’ System”. He wanted to shine a light on what immigration is really like. “I wanted everyday Americans to realize how hard it is to come to America. America is so unique, and we need to make sure to preserve it. Many people in America don’t realize how good it is, so I want to reach them from an outside perspective,” commented Adams.
Adams feels that West Texas is a great place. “In many ways, West Texas is what all of America should be like, but unfortunately a lot of parts of America are like California. Coming here inspires him to see the model of what America can be and try to replicate that across America. “People here live in the best state in the best country in the world, don’t take it for granted remember how hard it was to get to where we are and to remember what makes this place so special and to defend it at any cost.
Adams expressed appreciation for his parents stating, “They have made possible the life that I have today. It’s great to be achieving my dreams and to have my parents be able to see that.”
