Every two years, thousands (maybe millions) of volunteer hours go into crafting our Texas GOP Platform to represent the majority of about 9000 Republicans in the state of Texas. These 9000 volunteers are the delegates to our state convention.
Texas, being a red state, has seen many politicians benefit from running under the Republican banner in the Primary Election. They win, and they are a shoe-in when the straight party voters cast a ballot the following November. We know this is true because we label many of these politicians as RINOs (Republican In Name Only). Once they gain office, they execute their powers their own way.

Re: Perry, think beyond West (Letter to the editor in the Dallas Morning News; 9 August).
This East Dallas resident, Kurt Wolfenbarger, opined that it was good news that the city of West was successful in getting FEMA disaster relief funds from the Federal Government. However, he then chided Governor Perry for not accepting the Federal “bribe” money associated with Obamacare.
Our government is aggressively promoting The Affordable Care Act as the way to provide health care for 30 million Americans who currently have no coverage. By implication, many supporters falsely assume that our beloved government is “giving” health care to everyone for free. Sadly, those who live with this assumption are the least inclined to investigate the realities of this grotesque law. The ultimate and total cost of Obamacare to all Americans, individually and collectively, is beyond our ability to predict. Our current government, through some diabolical combination of Continue reading “Will Obamacare “Destroy” the Elderly?”
Would it be a surprise to learn that we have one Texas Senator who is championing the fight against the upcoming Obamacare trainwreck and one Senator who is giving false reasons for not supporting the effort and siding with the DC establishment? Continue reading “Defund ObamaCare – DontFundIt.com”
Twice per year, The New American publishes The Freedom Index. This is a scorecard of U.S. Senators and Congressmen where key issues such as federal disaster assistance, CISPA, and ObamaCare repeal are used to determine how closely each congressman voted in adherence to the principles of the U.S. Constitution. Below is a summery of how the representatives from the north Texas area scored. Continue reading “North Texas Congressional Scorecard”
