Watch: Glenn discusses Texas' monumental example of self-reliance and what the US can learn from it

The state of Texas set an exemplary standard in its display of resilience and independence as Hurricane Harvey ripped through the Gulf Coast and flooded several areas of Texas and Louisiana.  In fact, the state's unmatched example of rescue efforts and self-reliance throughout the ordeal was beyond monumental that even those on the Left could not ignore it.

'Texans’ do-it-ourselves rescue effort defines Hurricane Harvey' read a headline from the Washington Post yesterday that celebrated the ordinary people who took up the challenge to save their neighbors as buckets of rain ravaged their towns and homes, and virtually shut down the entire Gulf Coast.

The scenes around Houston and Southeast Texas were reminiscent of a scene in Christopher Nolan's "Dunkirk" where civilans gathered their vessels to save soldiers stranded on the beaches surrounded by their ruthless enemeies.

The state has another storm coming as it recovers from likely the most expensive natural disaster in U.S. history.

"Now, can this last through the rebuilding effort?" asked Glenn Beck. "The question is: Can a state with no income tax be a model for a different kind of recovery effort? On its own through innovative private and public partnerships without waiting for the money from the federal government to back up to Houston?"

Today on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" Glenn discussed whether the values Texans are known for could be applied to the country at large to fix the amount of damage caused by progressives.
