Carry The Load
Memorial Day is only a month out and my mind is already turning on a regular basis to those who so willingly risk their lives for yours and mine.

“Well, there are some things a man just can’t run away from.” – John Wayne, Stagecoach (1939)

Supporting evidence has been provided, most recently with Erick’s exclusive a few weeks ago, showing the Speaker’s office as the catalyst behind the war against house conservatives. It’s not a new fight but with the January vote on House leadership looming, it’s time to saddle up.

Bring Back Mark Davis!
It’s time to stand up for a friend. For 18 years, Mark Davis has been a talk radio staple in North Texas. Over the last several, he has regularly filled in for Rush Limbaugh and had an ever-widening influence over the conservative movement.

Snatching Defeat From The Jaws of Victory: Texas Primary Update
My first introduction to politics was at 10 years old, volunteering with my parents on a State House campaign. What hooked me on political involvement was that we lost by 12 votes on a re-count and I knew that even at 10 years old I could have found 13 more votes if I’d have worked harder.
