    Barking Dogs

    Cross-posted from AmericanMajority.org As one of my mentors, Dr. Larry Arnn, is fond of saying, “A thing is good when it performs the purpose for which it was made.” A chair you can’t sit in or a gun that won’t shoot straight fail that test. So does a guard dog that won’t bark at bad guys. Being a guard dog is an interesting job. He | Read More »

    Status Quo or Conservative Agenda?

    Conservatives across the nation have been given an incredible opportunity to prove the viability of our ideals. In the November election Republicans gained nearly 700 state legislative seats, a number of Governorships, a majority in the US House and a near tie in the Senate. Democrats were held to the smallest freshman class of any party since 1915. Many lessons can be derived from this | Read More »

    Texas House Members: Your Primaries Are One Year Away

    From the diaries by Erick What’s more corrupt than the lieutenant of a sitting Speaker of the House making threats against Representatives who refuse to support that speaker? Is it possible for someone to go further up the shameless meter than to draw redistricting maps to cut Representatives out of their districts in order to punish them for standing up to a bad politician?

    Joe Straus Stands Against Free Speech

    Freedom of speech is under attack courtesy of Texas House Speaker Joe Straus. He is effectively trying to stuff as much speech as possible into the definition of “political advertising,” hassling average Texans out of the conversation. In his interim charge to the General Investigating & Ethics Committee Straus commanded the following: Review the definition of “political advertising” and determine whether the definition should be expanded | Read More »

    What Will You Do For Liberty?

    From the diaries by Erick I wrote last week emphasizing the importance of TEA Party involvement this election cycle. In it I asked the question, “Are You Astroturf?” and I expressed my frustration with TEA Partiers who fail to follow through with meaningful action (phone-banking, block-walking, etc.) to back up their protest. For those of you un-convinced of the impact that TEA Party activists can | Read More »

We have made catchy t-shirts. We have raised awareness. We have confronted our liberal representatives and served notice that they will soon join the unemployed.
