QUOTING…  They say the world has become too complex for simple answers. They are wrong. There are no easy answers, but there are simple answers. We must have the courage to do what we know is morally right.” — Ronald Reagan

Today’s headline in the Dallas Morning News says it all: “Texas business groups ally to counter tea party influence in GOP primaries.” Ironic, since the tea party arose to counter those establishment groups working to undermine our economy and liberty!
