Colorado City, Texas – Town mayor, Tim Boyd, resigned after telling his constituents “only the strong will survive and the weak will parish.”
Much of the United States has been experiencing a winter storm that has complicated living. The state of Texas still has a large number of residents without power and are desperate for help as they look for options to try to keep warm.
Boyd took his Instagram page and posted:
“Let me hurt some feelings while I have a minute!!
No one owes you are your family anything; nor is it the local government’s responsibility to support you during trying times like this! Sink or swim it’s your choice! The City and County, along with power providers or any other service owes you NOTHING! I’m sick and tire of people looking for damn handout! If you don’t have electricity you step up and come with a game plan to keep your family warm and sage. If you have no water you deal without and think outside of the box to survive and supply water to your family If you are sitting at home in the cold because you have no power and are siting there waiting for someone to come rescue you because your lazy us direct result of your raising! Only the strong survive and the weak will parish. Folks God has given us the tools to support ourselves in times like this. This is sadly a product of a socialist government where they feed people to believe that the FEW will work and others will become dependent for handouts. Am I sorry that you have been dealing without electricity and water; yes! But I’ll be damned if I’m going to provide for anyone that is capable of doing it themselves! We have lost sight of those in need and those that take advantage of the system and meshed them in to one group!! Bottom line quit crying and looking for a handout! Get off your ass and take care of your own family!
Bottom line- DON’T A PART OF PROBLEM, BE A PART OF THE SOLUTION”
Boyd later deleted the Instagram post after reporting that his wife received threats. Soon after he resigned from his position as the mayor of Colorado City.
