Curious who supports Dewhurst?
In my circle of influence, we all support Ted Cruz and are looking forward to voting for him in a few days. When I see poll results showing Dewhurst with support anywhere from high 30′s to low 40′s, I wonder who in the world these supporters are. This past weekend the Cruz campaign organized a block walk for volunteers to help out in the southwest | Read More »
Preventing a Texas Two-Step
Texas could undergo quite a dynamic change in leadership without her citizens being able to cast a single vote. If two particular candidates win their races, then political promotions will begin inside the pink granite dome at a fervent pace: Perry becomes President and current Lt Gov. Dewhurst becomes U.S. Senator. Let the shuffling begin: Step 1. RINO David Dewhurst gets the win for the | Read More »
It’s time to put on our primarying caps.
Primary adj. first in time or order or development; from which others are derived. In Texas, our candidate filing deadline is January 1, 2012. Less than 8 months away. Can you imagine the look on some of our legislatures’ faces when they find out someone is running against them in the primary? I’m sure most of them will be incredulous. But why not? You hired | Read More »
Take note Texans: We are witnessing the difference between a conservative and a republican
EE mentioned on Bortz’ radio show this morning, he believes the left has given up at the state level to focus pushing their agenda at the federal level. Quite frankly, the left doesn’t need to worry about the state level because republicans will promote the progressive agenda for them. I am being inundated by conservative grassroots organizations and blogs to please call Gov. Perry to | Read More »
Republican bill helps illegal immigrants in Texas get a driver’s license.
I attended the primary debates for HD 47, so I knew Mr. Workman’s position on E-verify. No surprises as a business man in the construction industry he would deem E-verify ineffective. But, Friday morning, we learned about a bill he submitted which was a huge kick in the gut: HB 2886. Our local am radio station’s topic was about legislation submitted to create a Green | Read More »
(D) Rep. Doggett (TX, CD-25) is dodging Obamacare! Surprise, Surprise.
Falling in line with commands from atop the Democrat Party, our trusty Democrat Congressman issued his first campaign ad without a word about their historic health care bill. <object width=”640″ height=”385″><param name=”movie” value=”http://www.youtube.com/v/Fb852DoNAUo?fs=1&hl=en_US”></param><param name=”allowFullScreen” value=”true”></param><param name=”allowscriptaccess” value=”always”></param><embed src=”http://www.youtube.com/v/Fb852DoNAUo?fs=1&hl=en_US” type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” allowscriptaccess=”always” allowfullscreen=”true” width=”640″ height=”385″></embed></object> And in his own words, he admits to writing the bill. <object width=”640″ height=”385″><param name=”movie” value=”http://www.youtube.com/v/_KI1NBrxXBQ?fs=1&hl=en_US”></param><param name=”allowFullScreen” value=”true”></param><param name=”allowscriptaccess” value=”always”></param><embed src=”http://www.youtube.com/v/_KI1NBrxXBQ?fs=1&hl=en_US” type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” allowscriptaccess=”always” | Read More »
Takeaway From My First RPT State Convention
The Republican Party of Texas convened this weekend in Dallas. As an Austin resident, I can’t emphasize enough how refreshing it was to be around like minded individuals for a couple of days. When Redstate holds its gathering here in Austin this September, it will also be a breath of fresh air. Politics has only recently been on my radar. I’m not sure if | Read More »
Looks like they were right during the campaign….experience does matter
Can there be any doubt who would have handled this oil disaster in the gulf better…our commander-in-community organizer or experience-in-the-oil-industry governor? Just such a glaring contrast.
Hello? Hello? Sen. Cornyn please answer the phone
I’ve been calling all 7 of your regional offices and your DC office and keep getting voice mail. Have I been flagged by caller ID and now you are not taking my calls? My vote surely is worth answering the phone. Your comments to HuffPo knocked the wind out of me. Let’s keep the message simple. “Repeal”. Give Michael Williams a call; he’ll give you | Read More »
