Supporters of Limited Government Can Win When Focused

Last year Metro made an attempt to take one fourth of every dollar of sales tax you pay. Twenty-five cents of every sales tax dollar had long been allocated to the surrounding communities for their transportation needs. However Metro coveted it and set up a November referendum to take it away. But Houston business leaders Louis Macey, Walter Mischer, Jr., Dick Weekley and others stepped up with financing and their personal clout to defeat it. The well known Barry Klein plus myself who have been critics of Metro since its inception spoke out.

Houston Republican District Convention

VFV--Rep Dist Conv Russell Ridgeway and Gail Stolzenberg5At the convention I had a chance to visit with my friends Justice of the Peace Russell Ridgeway and Certified Health Coach Gail Stolzenburg.
Judge Ridgeway has held his post for over ten years and with an engineering degree and an MBA is among the best in the state. His court is the fourth busiest handling 250 cases a day. He told me that Obamacare is already having a significant negative effect on people in his court as he is forced to give rulings on many evictions as renters whose hours have been cut by the 30 hour rule can no longer pay their rent. And of course the most vulnerable with poor skills are likely the first to have their hours cut.

Gail is a long time public speaker who has many friends who are and have been nationally known motivational speakers throughout America. He is one of our country’s very necessary health and wellness coaches. VFV--Rep Dist Conv Russell Ridgeway

Houston Republican District Convention

At Saturday’s Republican District Convention I had the opportunity to visit with many friends from my 40+ years of working in Republican politics. I had the good fortune to have a nice visit with State Party Chairman Steve Munisteri who I first met when he was head of Young Americans for Freedom 40 years ago. As with most true conservatives his viewpoint has not changed but a lot of conservatives have come to his brand.

Let’s Elect a CONSERVATIVE president!

Let’s elect a CONSERVATIVE President!

We conservatives in our individual states have made great progress and continue to make great progress across America. Let’s continue this in Washington.

When I attended the rally of 11,000 Tea Party conservatives at Sam Houston Park the power and intelligence of the Tea Party movement of which I am a part was happily confirmed.  It had earlier wisely rejected becoming a third party—a feel good gesture which would nevertheless have become fatal to its interests.  Heartwarming too was the large numbers of prolife social conservatives who revealed that they understood that their message and their impact needed to be expanded by also including fiscal issues.

We need to take this attitude and approach to the 2016 presidential election process which is already beginning.

While we will all have very strong feelings about the presidential candidate we prefer, and we will all have even stronger feelings about the principles that person adheres to, in the event he or she does not prevail we MUST support the conservative candidate still in the race whose principles most CLOSELY resembles our own.

The Democrats and the media (am I being redundant?) continually emphasize differences among conservative candidates to create a circular firing squad among them. They have begun this process in the past few days with Senator Rand Paul and Senator Ted Cruz.  Both have wisely stated their personal beliefs without attacking the other.  Smart.  And a good start.

The preference of the liberal media is that only MODERATE Republicans remain as the final candidates. Voters are then always left with the choice of a liberal Democrat and a moderate Republican nominee.  Liberals know too well that voters who want a liberal president want the real thing—not a Democrat lite.  So they vote for the Democrat and win. And we lose the America we love.

Let us all work as forcefully for our conservative second, third and even forth choice as we will for our first.  Because given the direction this country is going, only a tough, principled CONSERVATIVE will be able to turn it around.
