A Balanced Budget Amendment – Why not?
How long will a con con last?
Who will Chair a con con?

Why Vote, if Your Vote is Being Stolen?

Irregular vote counting procedures across Texas have been brought to light dealing with violations of Texas Statute & Texas Constitution. Both the Texas Secretary of State and the state Director of Elections are at fault.

Why Vote, if your vote is being Stolen?

The issue is not new. TheHill.com published an article “States ditch electronic voting machines” in droves.  The Texas Attorney General’s office has been asked to launch an investigation into vote fraud in Hill County, Texas.  And recently hundreds of Texas voters have been fighting the actions of the State authorizing the use of electronic voting machines that do not comply with the Texas Constitution and Texas Election Code.

Keith Ingram (state Director of Elections) has been granting waivers to counties Continue reading “Why Vote, if Your Vote is Being Stolen?”

Convention of States Lied to Texans

Texas Plan
By Governor Greg Abbott

Texans don’t like to be deceived and lied to. It is especially disappointing when that Texan has invested countless hours and resources behind a leader’s words, trusting that the leader has Texan’s best interests in mind.

Well, in politics just as in business, it is unwise to trust your resources to another without proper oversight and investigation.

Convention of States proponents have long been told by such deceivers as Michael Farris, Mark Meckler, Mark Levin, and Tom Colburn to name just a few, that the Article V convention is not a constitutional convention – it can’t be, and it won’t be.  They further pretend that those naysayers claiming that it is a constitutional convention are ignorant or misleading, and refuse to do anything about our runaway federal government.

How threatening is the U.S. Constitution?

When a marriage goes south, the partners don’t amend the marriage vows to keep the vows compliant with issues of infidelity.

Likewise, when the federal government violates their Oath, we must not change the words in the constitution to justify federal non-compliance.  Enforce the 10th Amendment first, and then see what America looks like. Continue reading “How threatening is the U.S. Constitution?”

Why Texans don’t have faith in an Article V Convention

Texas has the independent power, without the advice or consent of any other state, to enforce the 10th Amendment

An Article V Convention won’t work to benefit the People because the same legislators who refuse to enforce the good parts in the current constitution will be the ones to propose new amendments.1787 Constitutional Convention

Did Joe Straus appoint Rep. Phil King to chair the House committee that would oversee 10th Amendment bills because King could be counted on to stall any and all good 10th Amendment action bills? Would Straus be a likely Texas delegate to an Article V Convention? The answer to both questions is a very possible yes. Continue reading “Why Texans don’t have faith in an Article V Convention”

School Choice already exists in Texas

PARENTAL CHOICE is, and has been, in the Texas Education Code since at least 1995, allowing for a student to transfer to another campus within a school district, to another School-Vouchersschool district, to another county, and even to a district in another state (for districts bordering the state line).

PUBLIC EDUCATION GRANTS and the public FINANCING of the grants is, and has also been, in the Texas Education Code since 1995.

Why then, does the Texas Legislature continue to reinvent the wheel with programs designed to force private schools to accept public money through grants or vouchers?  This is done under the guise of Continue reading “School Choice already exists in Texas”
